Atlanta’s Druid Hills Golf Club Begins Using StrackaLine’s Cutting Edge Hole Location Software
Members at Prestigious Club are Singing Praises of Software’s Functionality
Druid Hills Golf Club, one of Atlanta’s most exclusive private clubs, is the latest course to begin using StrackaLine’s powerful new Hole Location (HoLo) software, which has revolutionized the way course superintendents select pin positions.
StrackaLine’s new program allows superintendents to choose among 100-150 pin positions on each green that have been evaluated for fairness and challenge, based on slope and edge clearance. The ability to set pin positions based on data helps improve pace of play and course conditions by ensuring hole locations are set fairly.
While the Green Manager makes life easier for superintendents, golfers have noticed the impact of the new technology as well.
“I can’t tell you how much I’ve heard about the different, never seen it there before hole locations since we started using the software,” said Bobby Guiendon, Director of Golf at Druid Hills. “Another key benefit is it allows our members to link our hole location sheets more accurately with their StrackaLine Greens Guides, which they really like.”
“The software also allows us to spread out traffic on our greens, which helps keep our bentgrass healthy, particularly during the summer months,” Druid Hills superintendent Joe Hollis said.
As part of the HoLo package, StrackaLine scans all 18 greens on participating courses and creates topographical maps that are accurate down to the millimeter, allowing the software to determine the best pin locations on each putting surface
The new software has been embraced by the market as more than 50 courses are already utilizing the best-of-its-kind technology, including former PGA Championship and Ryder Cup host Hazeltine National Golf Club.
