It can be easier for golfers to get a hole in one than to find the right golf course. That’s what led us to create the GolfNow app (available for Android), which helps golfers find and make reservations at courses, and improve their games by showing satellite views of courses as they play. The app is a spinoff of our GolfNow website. The app shows golfers their exact location on the course and the distance between their location and the cup by collecting routing information from a third party and overlaying it on top of Google Maps Satellite view.
