The Pines is Blooming with New Golf Carts and GPS System

The Pines is Blooming with New Golf Carts and GPS System Grand View Lodge may be known as the most rewarded golf resort in Minnesota, but now they will also be known as one of the leaders in golf technology.

Every new golf season produces course and technology updates, but the 2014 year at the Pines Golf Course boasts of 104 new Club Car Precedent i2s and Visage GPS System. The new Club Cars have plenty of upgraded features and the latest in drive train technology. Rain club covers, waterproof storage areas and a trendy white body with light gray seating will take the fairways in full swing.

Grand View Lodge may be known as the most rewarded golf resort in Minnesota, but now they will also be known as one of the leaders in golf technology.With this new GPS system in place, the Pines is focusing on being the best “pace of play” resort courses in the state!  This system allows both the pro shop and the customer the ability to see the pace of play.  This combined with our friendly player assistant staff will allow the Pines’ pace of play to be excellent even on the busiest of days.

The Visage GPS System is also what a golfer could consider his own personal concierge service and caddy. The touch screen technology provides yardages to front, pin and back of green and to any point you touch on hole. It also tracks distances of the tee ball hit, flyover at tee box and pace of play. Golfers can also order food and beverages on every hole and enjoy an electronic scorecard that can be instantly emailed at the end of the round.

The Pines is Blooming with New Golf Carts and GPS SystemIf you haven’t played the Pines in a couple years this year would be the time to do it.  The Lakes & Woods course updates were very well received. The tee box renovations and Lakes #7 green are maturing nicely and the golf course conditions will truly be at their peak this season. Grand View Lodge is making sure that the Pines meets all your expectations as one of the best golf experiences in the state.
