If you’ve spent any time on a golf course in the past few years, chances are you’ve heard music coming from a group close by. 

It’s true, the days of quietude, rigid etiquette, and pleated pants have given way to untucked shirts, cold beverages, and music. Golfers today want their experience on the course to be fun, relaxing, and inclusive. 

The problem for a lot of golfers that like to play music has been finding a speaker that connects with their smartphone that’s loud enough and clear enough to be heard.

Enter the Bushnell Wingman GPS speaker. This is arguably the most advanced speaker on the market, and it’s flying off the shelves into the hands of golfers just like you and me.

Key Features

Outstanding sound quality allows music to be heard from anywhere on the course.

More than 36,000 preloaded courses are easily accessible, and the GPS feature gives you yardages to the front, back, and center of every green.

Built-in USB port allows you to charge your electronic devices while the speaker is playing.

Design and Technology

As I said before, the Bushnell Wingman is full of tech and design features that set it apart from other portable speakers. 

Operation couldn’t be any easier. All you have to do is press the power button, pair with your smartphone and you’re jamming to music down the fairway. 

When you get to your ball in the fairway, just press the audible button and the speaker will automatically give you yardages to the front, middle, and back of the green. This is all made possible by the more than 36,000 courses that are preloaded into the Wingman’s GPS. 

You won’t have to worry about the speaker flying out of your golf cart either. It comes with Integrated BITE magnetic technology that allows it to securely attach to any metal surface. I’ve found it easy to attach to the metal support bar on the front of my golf cart.

A lot of speakers need to constantly be recharged. Not the Wingman. It can last up to 10 hours on a single charge. That’s plenty of juice for those long, 36-hole days. 

Want to keep your phone charged while you’re out on the course too? No problem with the Wingman. It has a built-in USB charging port. All you need is your charging cord. 

If you’re going to purchase the Wingman, it’s a good idea to also get the Bushnell Golf app. This app affords you lots of additional benefits like data to help you improve your game, and easy updates for the GPS.

Bushnell stands behind their products. When you buy the Wingman, it automatically comes with a one-year warranty in case anything goes wrong.


  • Superior sound clarity lets music be hard clearly, even from lengthy distances.
  • Audible GPS feature speeds up play and makes club selection easy.
  • Integrated BITE magnetic technology secures the Wingman to any metal surface.


  • Weight and size may not be ideal for golfers that like to walk.
  • Speaker is more expensive than some of its competitors.
  • Availability can be inconsistent depending on demand and inventory levels.

Our Experience

Almost everyone in my regular group has become a fan of playing music on the course during our weekly round. You’ll find everything from Sinatra to Creedence Clearwater Revival, to JAY-Z.

As someone who enjoys most all types of music, especially when on the golf course, this has proven especially enjoyable. 

The majority of guys that fancy themselves on-course DJ’s have chosen the Bushnell Wingman as their speaker of choice. They especially like the volume and clarity of sound this speaker churns out. 

The audible GPS yardage feature has done a lot to speed up play too. Guys aren’t wasting nearly as much time trying to shoot the flag with a scope or pacing around aimlessly looking for markers. 

Suffice it to say the fellas in my group have proven to be good business for Bushnell. And it’s for good reason.o Transport Cart Bag and swear by it. They love all the storage it provides, especially the customizable divider top. 

They also appreciate how well-built the bag is. Whereas a lot of other EOM cart bags are mass-produced and therefore lack in quality, such is anything but the case with this bag.

In short, the guys I know have nothing but good things to say.
