Go with a range finder on this one


I have a laser range finder that I could use during the Rumble to obtain true distances. :wink:


which is illegal during sanctioned play.

The Price of the unit doesn't really matter when you are talking about one that the average man can afford; between $100 and $600. The closest you will ever get with these is roughly 3 meters. This is due to the fact that WAAS correction is the standard in GPS equipment and only accurate to 3 meters. If you want any closer you have to pay big $$ for high accuracy corrections.

Bottom line is if you have an open to fairly open course than a GPS unit will work; but for moderate to heavily wooded use a range finder.

Here are the GPS measurements from last night. The GPS should also have elevation data to add to this soon. Next post I'll compare the 4 different sets of lengths we have so far...

Is there a map of CII anywhere? Played it once, but can't seem to replay much in my head, other than a few holes here and there.

Anybody willing to take these down so they're available if needed for another event?
