I found that mis-leading because it was only accurate to around 20-30ft which is fine for general GPS locating, but not precise enough for disc golf. I ended up purchasing a walking distance wheel at a sporting goods store for around 20.00 and it is extremely accurate.

Laser range finders are legal... if you can see your disc from where you threw it...

Football field is awesome if you can find one. Back of end zone to back end zone is 360' (100 + 10 + 10 yards), and the lines make it easy to measure anything in between.

Just make sure to keep track of where you're throwing, there's nothing worse than losing a disc while practicing in an empty field. Don't ask how I know

Get a 300' tape measure from a building supply store. Lowe's has one for $25. Now I need to find what I did with mine.
