Homemade Yardage Books?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Do any of you have good ideas for a homemade yardage book?  I watched a few videos about how the pro caddies do it, I just dont have the time (who does).  I want to hand draw it, and maybe use google earth for the distances.  Show some pictures of your homemade book.

Google Chrome browser with the "pixlr grabber" extension. Use google earth, you can rotate the image, and use that extension to copy any image shown on your desktop. I use it all the time. From there you can just use google maps and measure distances, google maps has a new lab extension that allows measuring. You can print the pictures out and just write on them, or if your handy with photoshop (paint.net), or similar program, you can label using that before hand.

Check out Planimeter app on Google Play, it makes measurements on Google Maps and you can save it as screenshots. It's paid though.

My book is not done and I'm not really doing a yardage book, more of a greens book.  I'm using google earth and tracing paper to draw the outline of the green.  Then using the tracing paper to indicate the break on the greens.
