StrackaLine, maker of golf’s premier greens guides, has scanned Framingham Country Club, a Boston-area private club with a rich history.
Framingham, which opened in 1902 and has hosted numerous United States Golf Association and New England PGA events, is offering StrackaLine’s tour-quality greens guides to its membership.
“Framingham Country Club is one of the New England area’s best and most influential clubs, so we are delighted to be providing them StrackaLine Greens Guides,” company president Jim Stracka said. “Framingham members will enjoy the benefits of having access to the same information about their greens that PGA Tour players enjoy on a weekly basis.”
Located approximately 25 miles from downtown Boston, Framingham counts Donald Ross among the architects who have contributed to the course’s classic design.
The StrackaLine team took its state-of-the-art laser scanner to Framingham and scanned every green, allowing the company to map each putting surface with accuracy down to the millimeter.
StrackaLine’s quality and accuracy have led to widespread adoption on the PGA, LPGA, Symetra and Web.com tours, in addition to their use by more than 300 Division I college teams.
StrackaLine scans courses for $1,500 and that includes 100 greens guides for resale. The scanning process takes five hours to complete and is unobtrusive to the golfer experience.
StrackaLine now has 700+ courses scanned, including some of the nation's most prominent layouts. Use of the greens guides at the highest levels of the game surged throughout 2017, and the company now counts nearly every Division I golf program, including last year’s national champions, among its users.
The greens maps, which feature easy to read arrows, allow players to view contour and fall lines, in addition to slope percentage, anywhere on the green.
