Golf Canada had a blog entry about it a year or two ago. I don't think our rules differ much [if at all] from USGA so I'd say it's most likely legal for you guys as well. http://www.golfcanada.ca/blogs/rcga-rules-of-golf/article2840.ece I messed around with it on the practice green a bunch. I found it worked quite well as long as the fairway was cut tight enough.
