StrackaLine Scans The Links at Stoney Point

South Carolina Course Will Have StrackaLine Greens Guides Available for Symetra Tour Event

(San Diego, Calif.) – StrackaLine, creator of golf’s most extensive collection of professional greens guides, has scanned The Links at Stoney Point, which will host a Symetra Tour event this spring.

The upstate South Carolina course plays along Lake Greenwood and is one of the region’s most popular layouts. The Tom Jackson design will again host the Self Regional Healthcare Foundation Women’s Health Classic, which will be played May 10-13 with a purse of $200,000.

Defending champion Celine Boutier earned her LPGA Tour card for 2018.

“The Links at Stoney Point is an outstanding course, one we are happy to have as part of the StrackaLine network,” said company president Jim Stracka. “Golf’s next generation of stars are playing on the Symetra Tour, and we look forward to providing them with the same level of information their peers on the LPGA Tour have access to.”

StrackaLine’s quality and accuracy have led to widespread adoption on the PGA, LPGA, Symetra and tours, in addition to their use by more than 300 Division I college teams.

StrackaLine scans courses for $1,500 and that includes 100 greens guides for resale. The scanning process takes five hours to complete and is unobtrusive to the golfer experience.

StrackaLine now has 700+ courses scanned, including some of the nation's most prominent layouts. Use of the greens guides at the highest levels of the game surged throughout 2017, and the company now counts nearly every Division I golf program, including last year’s national champions, among its users.

The greens maps, which feature easy to read arrows, allow players to view contour and fall lines, in addition to slope percentage, anywhere on the green.

Professional usage has helped drive interest in StrackaLine Greens Guides, and the technology is just as valuable to "regular" amateur golfers hoping to improve their score.

For golf course owners and operators, the technology can be used to improve pace of play and help ensure quality course conditions. StrackaLine offers hole location software that allows superintendents to utilize a proprietary algorithm to help set hole locations.

StrackaLine will continue to add to its library of golf courses throughout 2018. It takes just eight minutes to scan and capture an entire green and the StrackaLine team can complete an 18-hole course and practice green in five hours without disrupting play.
