I think this is a good tool for course designers doing a real course, It is named: Elevation Finder


https://www.freemaptools.com/elevation-finder.htm


When you are on the site, first in the map ( top left of map ) change it from Map to Satellite.

Now you will have satellite view.

Then add location ( street and city ), for example: Donckstraat Beringen ( location of a course in Belgium )

Now on top right side of map click the small square icon and you will have full window view

With mouse wheel you can zoom in or zoom out.

Now click on some points on the map and it will add markers.

When you go with mouse over each marker it will tell you the exact elevation in meters and feet.

Note: It can take a few minutes before the markers appear on the map

But it appears to show elevation ASL, not elevation of the local terrain (height of hills above the fairways, for example)

Yes it is not perfect, but when you put a marker on the fairway, and one on a hill then you can calculate the height difference.

You can move your mouse anywhere on the image and the elevation is displayed at the bottom of the map.
