What is the Regulation Mode in Golf Pad?

Modified on Wed, 5 Oct, 2022 at 2:06 PM

Some of Golf Pad's features are designed for practice only and can not be used while playing a conforming golf round according to the USGA rules, such as playing in a tournament or playing a round that will be posted for the official golfer handicap. 

Please view this article for more information about the use of GPS and Distance Measuring Devices (DMD's). Included are details on USGA rule 4.3a governing the use of GPS, Rangefinders and other DMD's.

When Regulation Mode is enabled, the non-conforming features are disabled in Golf Pad, including:

- Elevation

- PLAYS LIKE distances

- Club Recommendations

- Real-time reporting of shot distances

You can track your game in Regulation mode. Then, review distances and related statistics after completing the round.

To enable or disable the Regulation Mode, open Golf Pad preferences and select Regulation Mode. You can enable and disable Regulation Mode without having to uninstall/reinstall the app. If playing a conforming round, be sure to enable Regulation Mode before the round starts. 

Note: additional local rules may apply - be sure to check with the local official to verify Golf Pad can be used during your golf round.
