Whether or not you make it to Hazeltine National next week for The 2016 Ryder Cup, you can see the course like never before thanks to our newly-released Hazeltine Explorer.
Hazeltine Explorer allows you to walk the course, explore the clubhouse, practice range, and more through a 360-degree view. You can see the exact spots on the fairway where Ryder Cup competitors will take aim during the 41st edition of the event over the coming days.
This isn't your run-of-the-mill flyover. You are at ground level viewing the course and all its features.
Key features of Hazeltine Explorer include:
- 360-degree full-screen photo tour of the course, captured via the Google Street View Trekker and 4,300 panographic photos
- Elevation graphs of every hole - check out the uphill walk from the fairway to the green on the 18th
- Watch videos of key shots from Hazeltine history, such as Tiger Woods' three-iron from a fairway bunker.
- It's mobile-friendly
- It renders full screen, giving a truly immersive experience
