Where to Golf by Carpe Diem Ventures quickly provides golfers with an abundance of information. With listings of 19,000 courses available golfers are able to search for courses by name, city, zip code or current location.
The simple search provided by Where to Golf offers remarkable results. Once a specific course is selected, information such as course address, par, ratings, slope, and yardage readily appear. Additional information located on the Details page includes prices, course type, restrictions, amenities, designer, year built, grass type and much more.
Should your search not yield a favorite course, no problem, add it yourself. The Add Course tab allows you to add a course of your choice. Simply pop in all the details — there's very little typing as Where to Golf uses the slot-style scroller to let users input information.
Where to Golf contains many additional features allowing you to access a course Web site, locate the course on a map, get GPS driving directions, and with the tap of your finger, call the course starter and schedule a tee time.
