    I dont think Mappoint has a place category for Golf Courses? but here is a sample for finding Chinese Restaurants within 2 miles of a pushpin in Annapolis, Md.

    I know it does not help you with Golf Courses but I thought someone reading this might want to know how to do it...

    Code:
    Dim objmap As MapPointCtl.Map
    Set objmap = MappointControl1.ActiveMap
    Dim objloc As MapPointCtl.Location
    Set objloc = objmap.FindResults("Annapolis, MD").Item(1)
    Dim iresults As MapPointCtl.FindResults
    Set iresults = objloc.FindNearby(2)
    
    
    For i = 1 To iresults.Count
    If iresults(i).PlaceCategory.Name = "Restaurants - Chinese" Then
    iCollection = iCollection & iresults.Item(i).Name & vbCrLf
    End If
    Next
    
    MsgBox iCollection

    MapPoint does know about Golf Courses, but yes it isn't in the categories. Which is annoying - because I've been mapping them recently.
    It was often possible to search on a golf course, and it would be there complete with its own icon!

    For some golf course maps I've been doing recently, I ended up mapping by address and saving the coordinates. This was for only one county and about a dozen courses so acceptable.
