Your CoursePro may be giving readings in meters instead of yards. On the main menu, scroll down to Settings and press the center button. Now scroll down to Yards/Meters. At the bottom of the screen, the display will indicate either Yards or Meters depending on which unit of measure your CoursePro is currently using.
If Meters is shown, press the right arrow control button to change the displayed unit of measure to Yards. Press the menu button to save the setting. Your CoursePro will now use yards for the duration of your game (until the unit is powered off).
NOTE: Many regular CoursePros will default to meters when powered on, while the CoursePro Elite usually defaults to yards.
