StrackaLine Scans Greens at Acclaimed Casa de Campo Resort & Villas
Company to Produce Industry Leading Greens Guides for All Three Dye-Designed Courses at Famed Dominican Republic Resort.
StrackaLine has completed scans of all three courses at Casa de Campo Resort & Villas and will be providing the internationally acclaimed property with its industry leading greens guides.
Home to celebrated Teeth of the Dog — a celebrated Pete Dye-design ranked No. 27 in the world — Casa de Campo will be hosting the Tar Heel Classic, a premier women’s collegiate tournament hosted by the University of North Carolina, March 15 – 16.
Casa De Campo is also home to Dye Fore, a 27-hole Dye layout with stunning views of the Dominican Republic’s mountains, Chavon River, resort marina, and Altos de Chavon. The Links, another Dye-design offers spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea.
“Casa de Campo is one of the world’s premier resorts, making it a natural partner for StrackaLine’s ‘best-in-the-game’ greens guides,” said StrackaLine president Jim Stracka. “Whether it’s the best collegiate players in the U.S. or traveling golfers wanting to play well on a trip to Casa de Campo, our goal is to help people play better golf and enhance their enjoyment of the game.”
Using a 3-D laser scanner, the StrackaLine team collected millions of data points on the greens at Casa de Campo and will use the information to create a topographical map of each putting surface, accurate to the millimeter.
The data collected will be processed by the company’s hydrology software that calculates water drainage flow from the highest points of the green to the lowest, creating golf’s most detailed greens maps.
Use of StrackaLine greens guide has soared for professional, amateur and recreational players, but the benefits of the technology extend to course maintenance and setup as well.
StrackaLine scans courses for $1,500. This includes 100 greens guides for resale. The scanning process takes five hours to complete and is unobtrusive to golfer experiences.
StrackaLine’s quality and accuracy have led to widespread adoption on the PGA TOUR, LPGA and Web.com, in addition to use by more than 300 Division I college teams.
The greens maps, which feature easy to read arrows, allow players to view contour and fall lines as well as slope percentage anywhere on the green.
StrackaLine now more than 800 courses scanned, including several 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 among its users.
