From time to time, Tom Egelhoff would hear complaints about locations of pin placements on the greens at The Club at Las Campanas, a 36-hole facility in Santa Fe, N.M.
Since he began using ezLocator, he doesnt hear as many complaints.
Developed by Dallas Athletic Club member Jon Schultz, ezLocator maps all pinnable locations using GPS technology and provides full archiving and reporting capabilities that allow the superintendent the ability to select a new hole location each day.
This summer, ezLocator enhanced its pin placement-tracking technology when it released the ePinSheet app.
Available through the Apple iTunes and Google Play stores, the ePinSheet app allows golfers as well as the golf shop staff and club administrators to get pin placements sent directly to their smartphone.
The app displays all pin locations with detailed views of each green.
Chip Lafferty, superintendent at Rye Golf Club, says the ezLocator tool helps him not only choose a new pin location daily, but it also helps him manage golfer traffic on his greens more efficiently. Moving pin locations throughout each green can help alleviate wear and stress from foot traffic.
Lafferty said that golfers also have expressed interest in how pin placements are chosen since he began using the tool to choose and track hole locations.
