    I am looking for a Golf Course database stocked with as much information as possible about each course. I have my own database designed and ready to go, I just need the data to fill it and I don't have the time to enter thousands upon thousands of records.

    I haven't been able to find one for free, anyone know a good place to look?

    You're expecting to get this data for free even though you know there's thousands upon thousands of records. Wow...

    Simply put, I think you're going to have to:

    1. Buy the data from someone, but I bet it won't be cheap (they had to buy it from someone or enter it in)
    2. Do some research with the gov't and see if they have the data. It might be cheaper then number 1 but may require more time.
    3. Enter it yourself (it would at least be free)

    :werd: to what everyone else said... I assume that if you're looking for a huge amount of information like this it's for some sort of commercial project, in which case I'd say enter it yourself (since that's what people are going to pay for in the product).
