Search for My Course
Course Selection - The GolfLogix application gives you immediate
wireless access to more than 25,800+ golf courses mapped around the
world so there isn’t any syncing or loading with a computer.
There are two ways to search for a golf course, either by your current
location or an optimized search through our entire golf course list.
My Current Location - Pressing this option will show you the closest
courses sorted by your current location. Select a course from the list to
download and start playing golf.
Course List - Pressing this option will allow you to sort through the
entire GolfLogix database of golf courses. Select a Country, then a
State/Province, then look at all of the golf courses in a City or type in
course names to filter the results. Select a course from the final list to
download and start playing golf.
Scoring and Stat-Tracking Options - This screen will show before you start your round. Pressing ‘Yes’ will allow you
to keep your score and track your stats during this round. The ‘Enter My Stats and Score’ screen will automatically
appear when you are finished with each hole.
Press ‘No’ and you will not see the scoring and stat screen in between each hole.
Aerial Imagery - This screen will show up after you select a starting hole and press ‘Play Golf’. Keep in mind
downloading the aerial imagery will increase the download time to download the course data.
Press ‘No’ if you do not wish to use aerial imagery.
Hazard-Layups Screens - These screens display all of the
hazards, layups, and the green center yardages on Par 4 and Par
5 holes. The ‘To Green Center’ line will remain on the top of this
screen at all times. Please note: GPS calculates a straight line
distance from where you are standing to the center of the green
whereas tee box plates read down the center of the fairway to
pivot points on the hole and then to the center of the green.
Therefore, GPS distances and tee box plates will never match
up on Par 4 and Par 5 tee boxes.
When your location gets within 150 yards of a hazard-layup point, that hazard-layup will automatically disappear
from the list and the remaining hazard-layups on the hole will move up the screen. The remaining hazard-layups can
always be seen by scrolling the track ball down from the last showing hazard-layups line.
When the golfer is within 200 yards of the center of the green, this screen will change to a Green Screen.
You will see the fairway of every hole on the course, if
applicable. You can also zoom in and out and scroll up and
down using the specified hot keys.
Zoom in: Press the ‘I’ key.
Zoom out: Press the ‘O’ key
Scroll up: Press the ‘K’ key
Scroll down: Press the ‘M’ key
Green Screens - These screens always display the front-center-
back distances to the green when you are within 200 yards of the
center of the green or playing a Par 3 hole.
You can use the ‘Previous’ and ‘Next’ buttons on all Play screens to
view other targets on your existing holes or to move to a different

calculation without logging a club.
