100' and/or 300' tape measure is what we used at Wildcat Bluff.
Great for flat land; a little different with elevation though.
Just stretch the tape as best you can.

You could also invest in a distance finder, most often used for hunting I believe?

Either use a laser finder of a measuring wheel. It's hard to account for elevation with a wheel but the measurement is close. We have a decent one if you want to borrow it.

Or just go to the store, buy it and take it back that day. Not that I would ever do that. :wink:

I have used a survey grade GPS unit from work before ............ for 25k they work awesome :lol: :shock:

On a serious note you can use a GPS unit with differential correction like WAAS can get you to sub-meter accuracy which is sufficient for a DG course. The only issue with using a GPS unit is when you have severe elevation. Think Hole 11 at McHose and Hole 6 at Akita’s Run. The only way you can accurately use a GPS unit with severe elevation is with a survey grade unit where you get centimeter vertical and horizontal measurements and do a little post processing to calculate the length of your slope (your straight line distance, tee to pin) by using your rise and run.

That wasn't even close to coming from my pocket protector. I could have gone total GIS geek on you, but I figured I would put it in layman’s terms :shock: :lol:
