Title Golf Course Measurements
Organisation Norwood Park
 
Overview 
Norwood Park in Nottinghamshire is an 100 acre estate of ancient deer park that incorporates 3 businesses. In this clip, Tony from Sky Guide International Ltd., demonstrates how they calculate the distance (in yards) from the tee to the centre of each green on the new 9-hole golf course. Using a laser range finder, they measure distances accurately so that they can be entered onto the score card which will assist the golfer to choose the best club for that particular hole. The mathematics used, involves distance (in yards) and a range finder.
