StrackaLine Reaches 1,000-Course Milestone at TPC Twin Cities
Maker of Golf’s Most Popular Greens Guides Continues to Grow
SAN DIEGO, Calif. — StrackaLine, maker of golf’s premier greens guides, has enjoyed rapid growth over the last three years, and the company has reached another milestone.
StrackaLine recently scanned TPC Twin Cities, host of this week’s PGA Tour event, the 3M Open, and it was 1,000th course the company has scanned and produced greens guides for. StrackaLine’s 3-D laser scanning team went to the Blaine, Minn., layout and scanned each green, collecting millions of data points.
Utilizing patented technology, StrackaLine used the information to create topographical greens maps that are accurate down to the millimeter. 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.
“Our goal at StrackaLine has always been to provide a product that improves the golfer experience, and the rapid growth we’ve enjoyed over the last couple years is validation of our efforts,” company president Jim Stracka said. “We’ve scanned courses in every corner of the country, and reaching the 1,000-course plateau is a significant milestone. TPC Twin Cities is one of the best layouts in the Midwest, and we are delighted to welcome the course to the StrackaLine family.”
TPC Twin Cities is an Arnold Palmer design. Palmer’s signature beach bunker on the seventh hole, elevated greens, and four expansive native area bunkers add to the unique character and strategic diversity of the course.
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 providing its best-in-the-game greens maps to professionals and amateurs.
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’s quality and accuracy have led to widespread adoption on the PGA, LPGA and Korn Ferry tours, in addition to their use by more than 300 Division I college teams.
StrackaLine now has 1,000 courses scanned, including some of the nation’s most prominent layouts.
