Exclusive Peter Jacobson Design Will Have Greens Guides for Annual Event
(SAN DIEGO, Calif.) – Oregon Golf Club had StrackaLine, maker of the game’s leading greens guides, scan the course in advance of its annual member-guest event.
StrackaLine scanned the private course’s bentgrass putting surfaces, collecting millions of data points the company used to create greens guides that are accurate down to the millimeter. Oregon Golf Club will provide the StrackaLine Greens Guides to participants in its annual member-guest.
“Oregon Golf Club is the one of the Pacific Northwest’s premier courses, and we are excited to produce our tour quality greens guides for the club’s membership and their guests,” said Jim Stracka, president of StrackaLine. “Private clubs are a perfect partner for StrackaLine, because our industry leading greens guides deliver a premium product and the technology can benefit the superintendent and his staff.”
StrackaLine’s quality and accuracy have led to widespread adoption on the PGA, LPGA 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 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.
