Web sites with course layout maps and scorecards

7 posts in this topic

A few years ago I recall having a link to a website what had an overview of various courses in the area, plus it had a lot of photos of each hole (or most of them) from the tee box.  I'm having trouble finding that site again.  Thought I had it but that one doesn't show the layout of each hole.  Some course specific sites show a score card (Oakwood in Franklin for example) but don't seem to show where each hole is. I play Hawthorne Hills up in Saukville a few years ago (last course I played) and didn't know which way to go from one green to get to the next tee, so an overview of the course would be nice to have.  Also, a couple of the apps I've got on my phone seem to want me to be on the course before it will load any info.  One that I thought I remembered seems to be defunct now (or was captured by GoDaddy or something).

www.golfwisconsin.com is the only one I have a link to currently.

Any other sites out there that show hole and course layouts?  I like to get a preview or general feel for a course before I try to play it.

Thanks, looks like they have Hawthorne's scorecard with a map on it. I could have used that a few years ago.

Do they have the "tour" option for Hawthorne? I love it and that is how I scout courses. I love the measurement tool. BG is also built into the WSGA site which is nice.

Hey, that tour option is neat, and shows me the distance to right where I put a ball in a creek in front of the 6th green. Neat stuff.

Yep cool stuff.  I was just talking with a friend who mentioned the only real downside is that you cannot really see elevation.  But being able to measure tee shots to see the carry for certain bunkers or stay short of an elbow or hazard is helpful stuff.  The measurements are pretty dang accurate as well.  There is a hole at Ironwood that I was convinced was longer than the scorecard and sure enough, I measure it on BlueGolf and while all the other holes measure correctly this one measures like 20 yards longer than the card to the center of the green.  Those Jerks! ;-)

I looked up Kettle Hills in Richfield and there is the tour option for both of the 18 hole courses. I gotta say that the bird's eye view of the holes is much different than I remember them. One hole I'd swear is a 90 degree dogleg around a pond with the pond encroaching into the fairway hiding over a hill from the tee, but nowhere near that looking from above (6th? on the Ponds & Woods track). Same with another (17 or 18) that plays like a zigzag double dogleg, but looks less intimidating from above, could be the near cliff approaching the green. Neat stuff. Manageable with the cell phone browser but much more usable with the desktop computer.

    • I agree that Acree put others in danger. And as I stated before, the laws regarding weapons and/or assault need to be enforced in this case. And the rest of my statements only apply if he was fairly certain this guy was the thief (of which none of us knows the truth). I don't care in the least that he threatened the guy's life or kicked him in the head. If I stole from someone, I would expect the same treatment. I promise you, most thieves know it's coming if they get caught by the wrong person. As for leaving this up to the police to solve and retrieve the property... sorry, but that's naive. Go ahead and look the statistics up of recovered stolen property - excluding motor vehicles. As for the police not using what some may view as excessive force... when someone is acting as this guy did, I don't believe they are very "gentle" with them. I don't think they can afford to be. They may be smart enough not to kick anyone, but they'll make sure those cuffs are on nice and tight. I'd love to hear from a law enforcement officer - even if it meant my opinion was proven wrong. But because the rest of us have zero experience in apprehending a suspected criminal, none of us are qualified to do more than offer our stupid-ass opinions. It's a pissing contest of opposing views that will likely lead to the thread being closed. There is no one way to act in this situation. You can think of yourselves as highly intelligent on one side of the argument, or Dirty Harry on the other. But this crap goes way beyond reason or ego. When faced with the situation, you either act, or you don't. And if you're going to act, you can't go halfway. Probably the best thing Acree could have done - once he pulled his weapon - was threaten the guy's life and leave no doubt (at least that's my stupid-ass opinion). I wouldn't have done what he did and that's why I leave my weapons at home. But criminals love the fact that most of us are passive.
    • Hi guys, been working on the swing. Had a few lessons, playing once or twice a week and got down to a score of 20 over par (92 on a 72). But still really struggling with inconsistency. Losing a lot of balls each round, have a bad miss when I come through the ball with a wide open club face and the ball screams straight right out of bounds. Did this on the first tee this week into someone's house...not good when the club pro and loads of people were watching. A dog was barking for the next few minutes :( Any tips? saving up for some more lessons soon but they are expensive to get as much as I want.
    • Chainsaws get heavy if you carry your clubs, gotta take a cart.
    • So the younger guy on the original is a science teacher in nearby, (for me), Middleborough MA. I think it was high school.
    • I know you mentioned it, but you're showing yourself as a 30+ handicap.  For the next few years, the sole grind of your wedges isn't going to be nearly as important as learning to use them properly.  In your shoes, I'd be looking at lightly used clubs in approximately the right loft/bounce combinations, without getting too bogged down in the next level of details.
