Yes, you can. A tree, bush, yardage marker, bunker lip, blade of grass, all can be measured with a range finder. If it reflects light you can measure it.
How many blind shots do you play? If every shot you're making is blind, then by all means, use GPS, but as I've said before, if you can see it, you can shoot it.
Modern GPS software (not skycaddie)can in fact track all your club distances on the course which is more valuable in my mind, it generates a lot of stats which I think there have been other threads about how valuable the stats can be.
You've got me there, I'll stick with pencil, paper, and golfq.com's software when I enter my round for handicapping.
