PuttView Books Partners with Chicago District Golf Association to Produce Land of Lincoln’s Dream 18 Yardage Book and Greens Guide

— PuttView Books has teamed with the Chicago District Golf Association to produce a special commemorative yardage book and greens guide highlighting Illinois’ Dream 18 holes.

The CDGA asked area golfers to vote on the state’s best 18 holes and after tabulating the results, PuttView, maker of golf’s premier yardage books and greens guides, created a special commemorative book. “The Book” allows players to study and enjoy the nuances of their favorite holes with a guide that is accurate down to the centimeter.

“Working with the Chicago District Golf Association on this project was a pleasure,” said Dave Macpherson, PuttView’s director of sales and marketing. “Chicago and Illinois are home to some of America’s premier golf courses, and this is a unique way to showcase the best of the best.”

After a vote of CDGA members, here is Illinois’ Dream 18:

Players at all levels of the game are using “The Book” by PuttView, which provides two views of each green and a yardage book hand-built by former Division I collegiate players and coaches.

Working with renowned putting instructor Phil Kenyon, PuttView has built golf’s premier greens guide and yardage book, helping players improve performance in tournament play.

The Book’s easy-to-read thermal view uses color to allow players to quickly see ridges in greens and possible hole locations. The detailed view supports green reading with arrows and contours shown at the maximum level allowed within the rules of golf, helping players quickly process vital information.

Yardage books feature fairway arrows when the slope exceeds 4 percent, carry and runout distance, elevation change and distance rings, among other valuable information.

Both the greens maps and yardage books are fully compliant with all USGA and R&A rules.
