Famed Gold and Green Courses Offer Players Access to Game’s Best Greens Guides
(SAN DIEGO, Calif.) — StrackaLine, maker of golf’s premier greens guides, scanned both layouts at Golden Horseshoe Golf Club in Williamsburg, Va., for the recently completed Golden Horseshoe Intercollegiate, a 21-team men’s event.
Golden Horseshoe, home of the Gold and Green courses, is one of the Mid-Atlantic’s premier destinations. The Gold Course, a Robert Trent Jones Sr. design, has been ranked among America’s top 100 public courses and a 2017 renovation project, spearheaded by Rees Jones, breathed new life into the historic layout.
Recreational players at Golden Horseshoe will also have access to StrackaLine’s Greens Guides.
“Golden Horseshoe is a premier facility and we were delighted to provide greens guides for the collegiate tournament and going forward to recreational players,” said StrackaLine president Jim Stracka. “Our greens guides benefit players at all levels of the game, and we are happy to be doing that at Golden Horseshoe.”
StrackaLine worked in conjunction with the USGA to ensure its greens guides were in compliance with the governing body’s new interpretation of Rule 4.3, allowing the company to continue providing its best-in-the-game greens maps to professionals and amateurs.
The quality and accuracy of StrackaLine’s greens guides have led to widespread adoption on the PGA, LPGA, Symetra and Web.com 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 900+ courses scanned, including some of the nation's most prominent layouts. Use of the greens guides at all levels of the game has surged, and the company now counts nearly every Division I golf program 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.
