This paper is a study on implementation of the golf play advice system which provides advice to golfers through mobile devices. The system consists of a mobile unit consisting of a GPS receiver, a data transmitter and receiver, and a display unit, and a server unit composed of a database and advice generator. The advice generator that provides advices to the users, generates advices with IF-THEN rule-based reasoning method. The reasoning module utilizes golfer's personal records and various information in the database of the server unit. This system provides the advice to the users who play on the golf course through mobile devices, so that it is possible to provide various information similar to the screen golf using the computer simulating technology in the outdoor golf course.
