How to map a golf course in Google Earth
If you’ve used Google Earth then you know what an amazing application it is.The tools inside Google Earth are as impressive as our big blue planet and for golf courses it is a valuable piece of software that gives players an insight into your golf course.
Eye Spy Golf have mapped over 16,000 courses
and now we’re in theprocess of adding detailed views indicating Greens, Tees, Yardage and Pins. Not a smallfeat and we need your help.Below is a guide on how to map your course. It is tricky and if you are a littletechnology challenged then be prepared for late nights and some head scratching!
 Just adding pins to a course is major advantage to a golfer so if this is all you managedon’t be concerned, it all helps.
To start, locate your course using
Eye Spy Golf 
and click on the “Aerial Image” icon atthe top right of the page. This will automatically fire up
Google Earth
and zoom youinto your course. It maybe slightly off as we have mapped courses using physicaladdresses. It’s easy to amend. Next zoom in to a position that you feel golfers wouldwant to see of your course.
Click here for an example of an Eye Spy Golf mapped course in Google Earth,
 you may recognize the course! Note we have angled the course to 30º to add moredepth to the course.
 
 
Steps to mapping your course
 
Adding Pins and Tees.
 1. In “Add” on the top menu click on “Folder” and name your course. You can also adda description of your course in this dialogue box.2. Now add another folder inside this one and label it “Hole 1” 3. Now comes the fun bit, Locate hole 1 by moving over course and add a Placemark(Small tack icon, see below).While this dialogue box is open move the tack to where the hole is on the course. Youcan change the tack icon into a flag by clicking on the tack icon inside the dialoguebox (see diagram below)
 
 
Here you will find a few preset icons to choose, the golf pin is perfect! Add adescription in the dialogue box . E.g. 450 yards – Par 3.
You have just marked your first hole!
4. Click on the course name which is the top folder you created and follow steps 2 – 4.The hardest bit is now adding all 18 holes!5. To add Tees is very similar to adding holes. It is important you have clicked on thehole where you want your pin to be. It’s an easy mistake to start adding pins andrealise they are all in the wrong folders.
It’s not a problem,
all you have to do is clickon the placemark icon in your folder structure and drag it into the right folder. Makingamends to Pins or Tees is very easy. If you have made a mistake or you want to movea pin then just right click on the icon in folders and a pull out appears, scroll down to “Properties” if you are on a PC or “Add info” if you are using a Mac. You’ll notice youricon (Pin or Tee) will start flashing. KEEP THE DIALOGUE BOX OPEN and move your
