Happy Holidays, Post some Stars, Course Updates


With this being the last update of 2008, all of us at GolfTraxx would like to wish our users a sincere Happy Holidays. It has been a great 2008 and we are looking forward to the start of the new year, as well as the new golf season. Last week, the LPGA wished farewell (I say it is just 'we will see you later') to Annika Sorenstram. Her poise, professionalism and great ball striking will certainly be missed around the world of golf. This week, the men's tour is playing at the Chevron Wold Challenge at the Sherwood CC in Westlake Village (zip code 91361). Its is good that this wasn't played in Las Vegas, where it snowed almost four inches!

Please post a review in the iTunes Store

We noticed an interesting way that the iTunes shop gives ratings to applications in the Aps store. When users delete an application to upgrade it, a quick survey asks for users to rate the application being deleted. Well, GolfTraxx was recently updated and TENS OF THOUSANDS of you updated your application, but our rating went way down. In fact, out of 30,000+ downloads, we have received less than 50 reviews. Our best theory for the drop in our rating is that many of you didn't enter any rating, so our overall score dropped.

So, if you are enjoying GolfTraxx on an iPhone, and didn't yet take the opportunity to rate GolfTraxx, please stop on by to the iTunes shop and give us a rating or write a review.


During the past couple of weeks, we added 68 new courses, with Texas once again leading the contributors in the US with 15 new courses. Both Arizona and Hawaii contributed seven each. Golfers certainly are flocking to the warmth of the lower latitudes. On the international front, we received courses from 9 countries which included new courses in The Bahamas, Jamaica and Fiji. Australia represented nearly 50% of the international courses with 8 of the 20..

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Since our last update, GolfTraxx has added over 120 courses, including courses in 10 countries (United States, Canada, England, Australia, Russia, South Africa, Venezuela, France, Italy, Holland) as well as new courses in 21 states. The golfing must be good in Texas in recent weeks as that state alone contributed 30 new courses to our list.

Every course being added to our database now has at least a few holes of “extras” so users will receive the full GolfTraxx experience.

Planning a trip to somewhere warm and/or tropical for Christmas? GolfTraxx now has over 50 courses in Hawaii mapped, over 100 in southern Florida, over 100 in Australia, over 200 in Texas, 30 in Arizona, and has courses in Barbados, the Bahamas, etc. So don’t forget to take GolfTraxx with you. You still have time to send in kml’s to get them processed in
time to use them on your trip.

Send us Feedback

A user sent us this picture of GolfTraxx on the 18th hole of their home course. Either this is the longest green on the planet, or there is a piece of errata on this hole. (If you picked option 2, you were correct.) If you notice something similar, PLEASE bring it to our attention. A picture is worth a thousand words, so if you have an iPhone you can use a screen capture function to save what you see. Simply hit the menu button (the one on the bottom of the face of the phone) AND the Power button (the one on the top of the phone) at the same time. Holding them for just about a second records the picture to your photos folder. Simply send us an email and let us know what course, it is from and the issue you noticed and we will research the problem.

Speaking of PICTURES... If you have a spectacular picture of your favorite track (like the 15h at the Caracas Country Club shown at the right), send it to us. We'll see how many we can add to the site. If you have a picture of you USING GolfTraxx on the course, the probability of us adding it increases.

Six Rounds That Can Change Your Life

Think about this... You have six rounds to change your life. Six rounds, top 25 get a coveted PGA tour card. Top 25 get automatic entries to tournaments, courtesy cars (probably not a GM, but a courtesy car no less), top 25 play for MILLIONS each week. The rest? Either exempt or conditional status on the Nationwide Tour or GASP... a job as a club pro. Now THAT is pressure! (But pressure I would certainly love to try.)

This week is Q-School. Some say THE TOUGHEST tournament in golf. Win, or place in the top 25 (and ties) and your tour card is punched, your meal card is punched for the year. Don't make it, and you have a year of grinding ahead of you.

For the ladies, things are not much better. 90 holes (five rounds) but only the top 20 get the best tour card (even this is not fully exempt.) From both tours the names on the boards read a who's who of tournament winners, NCAA All-Americans, and International tour winners.

Course Updates

Now for the courses: Today's update has over 120 courses! We also welcome new courses from both Venezuela & Russia, with additional courses in process in Holland.
