The golf club committee have, in accordance with rule 14.3 introduced the following local rule:
For all competition and social play on the west herts golf course, 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.”
Please note that the use of such devices shall not be permissible for competition play sanctioned / organised by national or county governing Bodies.
