How to measure short distances wirelessly

I would like to be able to measure a distance to an object. For example, let's say we were playing golf and I wanted to know exactly how far away I was from the hole, exactly! I know we can do this via satellite navigation (and there are products out there that can already do this), but is there another solution? If I was to attach something to the hole (or the flag that goes in the hole) that sends a signal to a receiver I am holding, would that be possible?

Hello Jeffrey L Olinger,

As per my long research, I am sorry to say the I didn't find any possible way you mentioned to measure distance. It is not possible till now, and I found no exact device to measure. But there are easy way you can measure distance by Laser distance measuring tools. They emit a laser which finds the distance between the object and your laser device and gives you the information. And other way is by an android app. It is called Smart measure. If you have any android device just give it a try. It has many positive comments and ratings.

Hope you will understand it.

Hi Jeffrey

I have worked on Robotics and Automations which required me to measure distances quite often. I used Ultrasonic sensor for the measurement. The principle is the one used in Sonar systems to detect depth of the ocean floor in submarines or ships.

But the problem with Ultrasonic sensors is that they get confused in the presence of too many objects. So you'll need to design the placing of your sensors properly. You can use a series of sensors to get the distance of the Golf course, since the golf courses wont be in a straight line mostly.

Hope you get some pointers from my reply.
