How do they do that?

During some of your travels around the world playing golf you might have played a course with a GPS system on your cart. Every wonder how the pin placements get updated everyday? Here is how I do it. I have printed out a screen shot of the greens complexes from the GPS computer that show all 18 greens. I then take the sheet and place it plastic and give it to my cup cutter. He uses a dry erase marker(not a sharpie in the picture)to mark the new pin placements for the day after he cups the new locations. He then brings the information into the golf shop and enters it into GPS program. It shows right where the locations are and it’s easy to use. The GPS downloads the information to the cart for the day and we are open for play. We then clean the plastic off and we are ready to use it for next day.

I have seen other courses just use a set group of 7 hole locations for a week and make the cup cutter stick to that, hell or high water, and then the GPS sets the locations for that day. Problem is that after about two weeks of doing this the holes are in the same spots. That can be a big problem for member play. Just in case you every wondered how.
