HAPPY NEW YEAR!, NEW GOLF SEASON STARTS THIS WEEK, NEW COURSES




Happy New Year

I have heard the term "Turing over a new page" referring to next month of a calendar. This got me to thinking that at the end of the year we don't really turn a new page at all. Rather, we get a brand new, blank set of 365 pages at our disposal. What we do with all those days is what's important. Will you play more golf? Practice more? Get that set of new clubs you have been eying all season? The choices are endless. While I generally don't do a "New Year's Resolution" I have decided that I will walk the course more times than not, I will play more times in 2009 than I did in 2008 and most importantly, I will focus on each and every shot. What is your golf goal in 2009? Let the community know by posting it as a comment below.

We at GolfTraxx are REALLY looking forward to a great 2009 and have a ton of ideas that we want to bring to our community. We are working on a major site update, new/updated versions of GolfTraxx, and as always getting as many golf courses GPS mapped as possible. So, bring it on, send us your favorite courses. Our resolution for 2009 is to provide you the best user experience we can.


New year, new Season.


Wow, it is just two weeks into Winter and the men's PGA Tour will start up this week. Granted, a couple weeks in Hawaii is a tough life, but who is complaining? The Kapalua Resort (zip code 96761) will host the Mercedes Benz Championship starting on the 8th. This annual season opener brings together only tour event winners and we get to see how the Pros shoot after a few weeks to a few months away from top level competition. Next week, the Sony Open will be played at the Waialae Country Club (96816), just outside Honolulu. The Champions, the LPGA and the Nationwide Tours will start in a few more weeks.


Course Updates

In the past couple weeks we completed 69 new and updated courses. We welcome Fiji as our newest country to the GolfTraxx community and also give a welcome to Puerto Rico as a new member of our international community. Australia once again lead the international with 15 new courses. It is always a G'Day down under for golf.

If you have a high end phone with a high quality GPS receiver and good battery life, you'll find plenty of Golf GPS programs up to the task of matching the functionality and accuracy of a dedicated Golf GPS for a fraction of the price.
