Torey Pines – US Open Golf Course Modeled in 3D

A couple weeks ago, 3Dwalkthroughs.com posted a story about a company called 3Dgolfcourse that is using their technology in combination with Virtual Earth to model golf courses in 3D.

I just came across a YouTube video of one of their works. The 3D animation is of Torey Pines golf course in La Jolla, California. This was the recent home of the US Open. For those of you that do not read the news, this was one of the most fiercely battled US open tournaments in history. The winner was of course Tiger Woods but not by much.

You can definitely see how viewing a course before actually visiting the location can be a huge advantage as players can better plan their strategies.
