    Is there any reason why the yardage per hole is not readily available on any course? I know we see the yardage when we play any hole, but that is not what I mean.

    Clicking on the 'Golf Course' link shows each course and clicking on any of them you can see each hole and a description, but not the actual yardage. 

    I know tee position and pin position have a bearing but surely it would not be too much trouble to provide this information for players?

    I for one would find it immensely helpful.

    You mean, a scorecard?

    You'd have to make it yourself, by setting up an 18 hole game from the desired tees and selecting the scorecards of front and back nines - available before the first shot. Save & repeat for the next course.

    While in game "Hole Info" will give you distance from each tee location.

    I noticed this just yesterday. I thought it use to show the distance from each of the different tees where you were looking. 

    I did the same thing alosso mentioned to get the information I wanted from the scorecards, but even that was a pain. I thought each scorecard use to show the distance from all the tees, but I must be thinking of an actual scorecard, or perhaps "Flash" scorecards.

    I was looking because I wanted to make as long of a course as possible for a custom course. I know a few courses by heart, but I don't have enough brain cells to remember them all. lol

    The PGA Tour will adopt a local rule officially restricting the usage of green and yardage books.
