I'm going to go ahead and unpin this topic.  Special thanks to @BigtazzGolf for turning it on and maintaining it all this time.  Moving forward, we've now got an embedded Member Map for the forum:

https://forum.mygolfspy.com/membermap/

Oooooooh Fancy.  It pulls the "Location" from your user profiles and plops it all onto the map.  If it's wrong, head on in and change it.  Keep your profiles up to date people!

 

You can also add your home courses and courses you play as you travel with reviews and comments.  This should be a cool way to discover new courses as you guys head out on work trips.  Of course, this data is only as good as you make it so GET OUT THERE AND START TAGGING COURSES 🙂

I'm bumping up this thread. We have several new members who might want to let us know where to come eat New Year's day black eye peas and collard greens. ;)  :D

Added myself to the map at what will probably become a place I hang out occasionally since it is only about 20 minutes from my house.......MyGolfSpy Testing Headquarters.

I want to come visit the labs sometime soon. I have a big more a drive to get there however. About 9 hours.

 

I have family in Leesburg up north. My cousin is the super at Rasberry Falls so I'm hoping to make a golf trip out of it. Visit family, play golf, then head the extra 3 hours south to the labs one day.

Hey guys,

Thought this would be a neat idea.

Set up a Google map where you can pin yourself (city/state no addresses) sorry, Google login required.

Thinking this would help us find more forum members that might be right around the corner and we never knew it.

Might be able to use it to also set up future large group events for weekend getaways.

Never created one before and hopefully I set it up correctly, if not I'll tweak it till it works.

Here's the link, https://drive.google.com/open?id=16E6jH-CK-Ug8qHvRxo12uMKBsuM&usp=sharing

Let me know what you think or if you have issues in adding your pin.

Directions to add pin from Google are copy/pasted below

 

Search to add a place

In addition to simply drawing placemarks, you may also want to search for a specific place, like a restaurant, hotel, or museum to add to your map.

To search for and add places:

  • Open a new or existing map in My Maps.
  • In the left panel, click the layer you want to use. The selected layer will be blue on the left edge.
  • Search for the business, address, or point of interest that you want to add. A new, non-permanent layer entitled “Search: your search term” will automatically appear in the left panel and your results will show as green pins on the map.
  • To add that pin to your layers, click the result. Then click Add to map.
great idea

Thanks for everything you do for the everyday hack like myself.  I have been following your page for a long time, not really a forum guy. Just wanted to say I like the new layout.  Keep up the good work.

With all the new members, I'm hoping the map fills up a lot.

I like the map and have been on it since you first put this up. I kinda messed my point up a few minutes ago and had to redo it.

I think it'd be a good idea to post the link in each message you reply to on here.

there's really not that many members on the map.

The thread is a sticky already. Want folks to voluntarily do it out of wanting to participate in the map and maybe use the map to help with future MGS group events.

I'd love that but it's up to members.

I just don't want people to feel obligated to do it just for joining our forum.

      I have developed an interactive map of Golf Courses in Idaho (http://idaho-golf-courses.blogspot.com) with the latest green fees. I also have them organized by region. These are public courses. I am working on creating a list of private courses for reference as well. I had developed this on a previous blog platform but it was extremely locked down. This should allow me to better upgrade the site and make it more useful. Please let me know your thoughts and any additional things that would help make this a better resource.
