HONOLULU -- Hawaii resort golf courses are taking advantage of new
technology. Waikoloa Beach Resort on the Big Island's Kohala Coast
and Kaanapali Beach Resort in west Maui, each with two 18- hole
courses, have installed global positioning system technology.
The system, developed by ProShot System, lets golfers know,
through satellite tracking, the accurate yardage for each hole.
Through a screen mounted on each cart, they can also get course
layout information and golf tips.
The ProShot system allows course management to track the golf
cart fleet and manage the pace of play through a computer
