Abstract

[Abstract]: Golf clubs need to present information about their general golf course layout, distances, topography of greens, tee positions and hazards in a suitable format for all players, both professional and social. This dissertation will concentrate on mapping of the greens at Toowoomba City Golf Course to create a contour plan for each of the greens. This will update existing map information and add additional information to what is currently available through the Golf Club. A combination of GPS, robotic total station and digital scanner were used to collect positional information on the greens. An accuracy assessment was performed on the information collected to determine the most accurate method of data collection to provide a contoured surface that represents the true contours of the actual surface. A number of maps were created using AutoCAD, Terramodel and Trimble Geomatics Office software packages. A wall mounted map of greens has been produced, to replace the existing map, showing location of greens and adjacent features. This map is designed to show golfers the location of the hole on each green for the day’s play. The map hangs at the Golf Club beside the Pro Shop and is updated by greenkeepers as pin placements change. Individual green contour plans were also produced for the Golf Club to use in their marketing strategies when attracting new members and competitions. The plans are also to be used as an additional service to members and social golfers to assist in reading the roll of their ball when putting for improving their game.
