StrackaLine Scans The Golf Club, One of America’s 100 Greatest Courses
The Golf Club, ranked 38th on Golf Digest’s list of “America’s 100 Greatest Courses,” is the latest layout to join the StrackaLine family.
StrackaLine scanned The Golf Club and is producing its industry-leading greens guides for the famed course, allowing members to enjoy access to the same technology PGA Tour players utilize.
Legendary architect Pete Dye designed the course in 1967 – with input from Ohio native and 18-time major champion Jack Nicklaus – and the quality of the design was immediately heralded. The layout was untouched for 45 years until Dye returned in 2014 to restore the original contours on the greens and move the fifth green, among other enhancements.
“The Golf Club is one of America’s most revered courses, and we are delighted to be providing players with StrackaLine Greens Guides,” said StrackaLine president Jim Stracka. “It’s only natural that The Golf Club, one of Pete Dye’s first masterpieces, would want to provide its members with access to the game’s best technology.”
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 to 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.
