100 & 10,000

Today's update will be a bit short on newsworthy items as we want to leave as much room for the OVER ONE HUNDRED new courses & updates! Yep, since our last update we have brought on or updated over 100 courses in LESS THAN two weeks. This has included 11 countries (many of them are new to GolfTraxx) and 28 US States. We GREATLY appreciate your support and hope you are enjoying GolfTraxx as much as we enjoy providing the SW and service to the Golf community.

We need your feedback! For those using GolfTraxx iPhone edition (and there are a LOT of you since we passed 10,000 downloads this week). Get the word out! The BETTER the user reviews posted to the iTunes store, the more users will download the software and provide the community with new courses. Please post your reviews. This will generate the most momentum for the community and will allow us to be the global golf GPS provided for smart phones. For users of GolfTraxx Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Palm, Etc., we want your feedback as well. Let the communities at CrackBerry, BlackBerryForums, TreoCentral, etc., know just how much fun your Golf game is with GolfTraxx.

We continue to map as many of the tour (PGA, LPGA, European, Canadian, Champions, Nationwide & Duramed) courses, so that you can enjoy the same course conditions the pros play. (Valderrama & Kai sai for example.) Many of the world's best courses do allow visitors to play, so if you are planning a golf vacation, be sure to map the courses you will be playing and send them in to us. A special note on tour courses... many are VERY new and the most current images are of courses during construction or even when the land was forests, swamps or farms. On to our new courses:

New countries ( Belgium , Denmark , Luxembourg , Portugal , Spain & West Indies) - The volunteers are lining up to do the on-course QA work for these new courses.

6K and Rising!

The response to the GolfTraxx iPhone edition has been great with over 6,000 downloads so far in just 11 days! There are lots of new users and we welcome all of you to the GolfTraxx community. That also means that we are getting lots of new courses added daily for your golfing pleasure. The iPhone Quickstart Guide provides the easy steps to finding and loading courses to your device, adding players and using GolfTraxx on the course. I highly encourage everyone to use the battery saving settings, they really help on those six hour weekend rounds. If you have ANY questions, feel free to use the comments section below, email us or give us a call. For the thousands of BlackBerry, WindowsMobile and Palm OS users, you are certainly not forgotten around here either. We are here to help your golf game.

LPGA Stays for Two Events

The LPGA spent two weeks in the SF Bay Area with both the Samsung World Championships and the Longs Drugs Challenge being held back to back in the region. The Half Moon Bay Golf Links hosted the first event which was won by Paula Creamer, playing in front of a lot of home town fans. The Longs Drugs Challenge at the Blackhawk Country Club was attended by some of us here at GolfTraxx and we had a blast. We met some great people from the Golf Channel, The LPGA, The Half Moon Bay Golf Links, The NCGA, and The National Golf League.

GolfTraxx on Tour

As the major tours hit new venues, GolfTraxx will be there! If you are walking the course at a tournament , be sure to download the course to your GolfTraxx enabled device and see just how far the players hit the ball. We're mapping the courses they play because most of them you can play also. This week, the courses at Kapalua, TPC Summerlin (Las Vegas) are mapped as is the TPC at The Woodlands G &CC (Champions Tour stop). GolfTraxx users have had GPS coordinates available at Kapalua and The Woodlands for over a year. The Nationwide Tour stop this week is 'under wraps' as the imagery for the stop was while the greens were literally covered or under construction.


We send our best wishes and positive thoughts to Seve Ballesteros & his family.

Here are the new Courses since the Last update – There are almost 40 more that are being processed and many will be available for a late Saturday or Sunday round. We will update this list a few times over the next couple days.

GolfTraxx iPhone Edition is LIVE!

We got word today (yes a Saturday) that GolfTraxx iPhone Edition was approved and is ready for FREE downloading via the iTunes store. So, we are no longer under the RADAR. To all the users that have added courses - we say THANK YOU! To those that are new to GolfTraxx, Welcome to the community!

Before we get to the new courses, a 'very' quick primer.

GolfTraxx is all about the community. If your favorite track is not yet mapped - we can provide the tools to do it quickly and easily using the GolfTraxx Guide to Mapping Courses. Want a REALLY detailed map (the kind that will win a few skins off your regular foursome.) Map your course using the GolfTraxx guide to Mapping Extras. Generally, we can have your favorite course ready to use in two business days and for most courses it will take you just about 30 minutes to map your first course. By the time you have done a few, it will take about 20 minutes to do a great job on the basics, and maybe another 20 to do extras. A really good investment of your time if you get an unexpeced rain-out. Need to make changes to a course - no problem. Adding extras to an already mapped course can take a business day or less.

The GolfTraxx iPhone User Guide (we call them quick starts) is here. Let us know if you have any question or comments.
