Using Google Earth for Practice Rounds in Golf

Have you ever planned a trip to a new golf course, but wished you had time for a practice round? Wouldn’t it be much more enjoyable if you didn’t hit your ball into the pond that you didn’t know was over the hill?

Well, with the Google Earth tool, you won’t ever have to play a golf course blind again!

In this video, I show you the basics of using Google Earth to play a virtual practice round at any course in the world!

Conversion: 

Elevation change (in feet)/3 = yards uphill/downhill

Example:

Elevation of tee-box = 30 feet

Elevation of green = 0 feet

Play the shot 10 yards down-hill

Simple enough enough right?
