Advice on use of distance measuring devices for clubs & golfers

Distance Measuring Devices (DMD)

The following is the ABGU's Local Rule:

In all abgu Championships, a player may obtain distance information by using a device that measures distance only. If, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance measuring device that is designed to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect his play (e.g. gradient, wind speed, temperature etc), the player is in breach of Rule 14-3, for which the penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional function is actually used.


a) Used as a distance measuring device (DMD)
If you use a mobile phone as a DMD, the phone must not have any other feature or application which can gauge or measure other conditions that might affect your play e.g. gradient, windspeed or temperature. If the phone has such a capability, irrespective of whether it is used, you will be disqualified.

For example, if your phone has a non-conforming feature or application such as a thermometer, spirit level, compass or anemometer (wind speed gauge), you will be disqualified, regardless of whether any such feature or application is actually used.
