Is it hard to remember how many strokes you had on that last hole? Do you keep losing the scorecard? Do you simply want an easier method of keeping track of your golf score?
You should consider a golf score counter. There are many different styles, and can be either digital or analog. Some counters keep multiple scores, some also keep track of putts. I scoured the web and found the top five counters and the reviews are below.
EZ Count Stroke Counter Review
You only need one finger to advance the counter.
You can only track 12 strokes but it has an easy to use one-touch-reset that you can use after each hole.
Colors options are:
Digi 1st Sports Tally Counter
Designed to be easy to use you can reset the score with the easy to turn knob on the side.
The display goes up to 9999
(though hopefully, you don’t have that many strokes!)

Pixnor Golf Beads Stroke Counter Review
This model, built by Pixnor is no exception.
The white and green plastic beads are attached to the black nylon rope, and stand up to a lot of use and abuse.

Easy to keep in your pocket, or you can also use the included clip and attach it to your bag.

Golf Stroke Counter Buying Guide
Types of counters available:
Analog – Generally the most common, and cheapest option available. Easy to use, and often involve a clicker, or manually adjusting a rotating disk.
Digital – More expensive option – Can often keep track of multiple scores, or your score and putts. Reliability can sometimes be an issue.
Bead Counter – While also analog, this common counter type is easy to use, durable and made to last.
What to look for when buying a score counter:
Price – Most counters are generally under $10 though the cheaper models are often less durable and more prone to break.
Portability – Since your bag might not always be near you it is best for a counter if you can keep it in your pocket. The best counters are often the smallest.
Durability – If you use the counter often you don’t want it to break immediately. Make sure to check what material the counter is made out of and if it is built to last.
