When it comes to mobile applications, simple can be good. Golf.com's new one for select Windows Mobile 5 and 6 phones makes it easy for links-lovers to find all the course location and details they could want while on the move--except for directions and hours of operation. They also won't be able to add personal course ratings or send a new favorite link to a friend from the application.
But never mind all that. Golf.com's free Course Finder beta, which heavily promotes its partnership with Microsoft, does what it needs to by providing a golf-themed interface with clear options to search for a course by name, location, or a customized preference. The returned results include a short list of entries with the course's name, address, rating, and price. The details page also lists amenities, has a click-to-call functionality, and can add the phone number to your contacts list.
You can get Golf.com Course Finder by texting "GOLF" to 58585, or by visiting http://www.golf.actionengine.com/provision with the phone's mobile browser.
