Stracka.com is a a Social Network for Golfers. At Stracka.com you can view a free online yardage book, post your scores, maintain your handicap, look at greens guides, and talk with your fellow golfers.
I have a feeling that contributor Jason Wulterkens and all of the faithful readers of his weekly column, The Primary Cut, will truly enjoy everything that Stracka.com has to offer. At Stracka.com, logged in users can meet new golfers that play at their courses, track their handicap and statistics, share photos, blog posts, and forum threads, and view course yardages and flyovers.
I personally think that the yardage maps are awesome. Stracka.com incorporates Google Maps technology, which can then be downloaded into your Google Earth program. Comments about each course and additional uploaded photos give golfers an understanding of a new course that they are about to play or an alternative angle to courses that are regularly frequented. In addition, a listing of nearby courses and upcoming events adds to the totality of the experience one encounters at Stracka.com.
As a fan of social networking, novel Web 2.0 ideas, and the world of sports, I think that Stracka.com does an excellent job of incorporating all three elements into a professional and aesthetically pleasing package.
