Golf Digest and Mobile Location Media have partnered to offer the Golf Digest GPS Range Finder. The range finder provides interactive layup and yardage measurement, scoring and gives you a preview of course maps. The Golf Digest GPS Range Finder is definitely on the expensive side at $5.99 per month, with no free trial. Again, this seems to only be available through the AT&T MEdia Mall.

Tiger Woods is the man!
GreenFinder is the latest product in a recent spate of golf tracking apps. The inaugural release of Itinerant Software, GreenFinder uses your GPS-equipped BlackBerry to display your distance from the front, back, and center of the green, and how far (or, in my case, how dismayingly close) you are to hazards. A yearly fee of $35 gives you access to free software upgrades and an unlimited number of course downloads if you happen to be a globe-trotting golfer. And unlike the most other golf tracking apps, this one’s been designed from the ground up for the BlackBerry.
GolfTraxx has recently announced BlackBerry support, and is celebrating by offering the software as a free desktop download. Streak of generosity, or roping in unwitting golfers for beta testing? You decide! The software uses GPS tracking on the BlackBerry 8800 for later review and online posting of your favourite courses on Google Earth. Check it out, hit the greens, get course information, track scores, and let us know how she fares.
