Get free golf course maps for your Garmin (or make your own)

Free-GPS-golf-maps One of the nice things about Garmin units is the bevy of free maps you can download for them; international maps, highway maps, topo maps – and now we can add golf course maps to the list.

An enterprising golfer has created a site where you can download homemade golf course maps for several states, and even provided tools to make your own.

While these maps won’t give you all the capabilities of the real thing, they will give you a chance to see whether you like using a GPS on the links before you lay out hundreds for the Approach G5.

    Anybody know where or how major GPS Golf Caddie companies get their “10,000 Golf Courses Maps” ? Are they all generated In-house or purchased from companies specializing in producing such maps ??

    Would be nice if one could Purchase Quality Golf Course Maps Online… for use with GPS Devices other then Garmon !? :)
