IDAHO GOLF COURSE TO TEST LASER GUNS

SHARE IDAHO GOLF COURSE TO TEST LASER GUNS

The Coeur d'Alene Resort Golf Course expects to become the first course in the nation to equip caddies with a new laser gun that measures distances with remarkable accuracy.

Golf director Mike DeLong discovered the laser guns at a golf trade show last year in Florida. The guns were still in the planning stage at that point, but DeLong placed the first order. He expects to equip all resort course caddies with the guns once they arrive in July."They're accurate within 1 yard at 300 yards," DeLong said. "It's just a small, hand-held gun - a laser gun."

The laser guns shoot beams off reflectors that will be attached to pins, bunkers and fairways. They'll also be sold to the public for $125 in the pro shop.
