Change in USGA Rules on GPS/Phone Devices

For those who participate in the Louisiana Women's Golf State Tournaments, this information could keep you from being disqualified, so please take heed.

In the past, we have been permitted to use GPS devices as long as they measured ONLY distances.  The use if iPhones, iPads, and tablets were permitted as long as they were capable of measuring distances ONLY.

Beginning this year, the use of those type devices as GPS for golf WILL NOT BE PERMITTED.  You can continue to have your cell phone with you for use in an emergency or to call the pro shop for rulings, but that's it.  And as usual, they should be placed on vibrate or silent during play.

The use of golf GPS devices are still permitted as long as they measure distance only.

For full details, please read the flyer that can be accessed by clicking here.
