Where can I find yardages online?

Does anyone know a website or app that I could use to view a course layout with yardages. I do not mean the standard course maps many courses have on their homepage. I was hoping for something where I could mess around and see where different yardages off the tee would leave me in relation to the green and any hazards. Kind of like a yardage book or interactive map.<br />
<br />
I have a golf trip in a month where I will be playing a few new courses. A group of 12 throws money on every round and four day aggregate, so I am looking for any advantage I can get. Any help would be appreciated.

    Google Earth should work.

    Simple fix is just going to the area the course is located, and moving the map around. The yardages should still work and be relatively accurate. From personal experience and measuring my home course I play 3-4x a week, I think the site has legitimacy.

    I checked it out. Looks like they built a simple measuring tool into Google maps. I like Google Earth better, but this will do the trick without having to install Google Earth.

    looks pretty useful, played some shots on a couple local courses seems pretty acurate.

    I used to reference this site all the time but it’s been awhile and it looks like the site isn’t there anymore. Does anyone know of any similar?

    Golfshot Plus is an app that should fit the bill. I use it as my on-course GPS app. It is also fun to look at a course prior to playing it. The GPS feature is great, but I also use it for keeping score/rounds/stats.

    Bluegolf is my go to for this. I go to Tour --> Holes Map and you can measure different yardages, etc.

    I have been using Golf Pad, free version, for about 4-5 years. The scorecard is a scorecard. What I really like is the gps. Tap a location of the map and it will tell you how far you are to that spot and how much is left to the center of the green.
