You can't use GPS in a tournament but for every day play it's no worse than having a coursebook and a caddie. Given the limitations of this device (only the ranges to the green center/front/back), it's actually less useful than many golf smartphone apps.

Actually it is legal in tournaments as long as it doesn't provide elevation or wind speed. The rule was changed around 5 years ago.

Well almost. The Rules of Golf still prohibit the use of any distance measuring equipment under penalty of disqualification. In 2006 the USGA and the R&A gave local competition committees the option of whether to allow such devices, and almost every committee has adopted such a rule. There are still some private courses where laser or GPS devices are not permitted. In 2009 the rule was amended to fully ban devices that provide wind speed, direction, and temperature even if those functions are switched of or otherwise disabled.

Here's a non-Amazon review:

http://www.criticalgolf.com/reviews/golf-gps-devices/celestron-coursepro-elite-review/

It's very thorough, getting a "B-" ... But reading it, it's not very well received ... And the software glitches are well documented. Even for $45, it's not a bargain.

Amazon reviews are bad for this item. Mainly lack of courses available.

Seems like it only give distance to green, no info on hazards. Pretty much worthless then.

I use golffrontier gps on my android and it works fine. I'll stick to using my phone.

Airvue app for iPhone, $9.99, gives you same functionality without the need to carry another device around.

Save your sanity. POS, any golf program on your smartphone is better than this. They should pay you to take it!
