Google Maps and Course Directory
« on: April 05, 2007, 03:04:24 PM »


Google Maps just released a cool feature that may be very useful to folk attending the KCWO and as a general KCFDC Course Directory.

I have made a KC Golf Course Directory and labeled the holes for Rosedale. The other courses and hole distances can be filled in later if we want to use this.

See if you can easily find directions from the host hotel to Rosedale.

Useful?

The Rosedale map is excellent! This can really help the KCWO visitors and people such as us who love to stare at disc golfing info online while at work.

I was looking at the PDGA website. They have some courses where there are pictures of each hole and descriptions about the difficulty level. Rosedale is one of those documented courses. The only problem is that I believe it is rather outdated.

The picture for Hole 2 showed a large bush in front of the tee pad. Was that there once, long ago? I would have liked to have seen it. A few of the other pictures were definitely outdated as well.

It would be great to have a KC website with all the courses outlined such as the one you created for Rosedale. Someday we all shall do that.

Added Cliff Drive to the KC Course Directory.

Thats Cliff and Rosie working now.


If you are a CC or just want to make one for your home course, create it and post the URL here and I'll add it to the main Directory.
