iDiscGolf is an application designed to provide disc golfers an all in one mobile solution to enhance the overall experience.

With iDiscGolf users can keep track of a seemingly unlimited number of golfers, courses, and rounds.

Want to find new courses to play on or simply download course data from your favorite course? Search a database of known courses in a variety of ways to find exactly what your looking for.

When searching by location, you can either find nearby courses or if you're planing a trip, provide a starting location and discover courses within a given radius of that location.

If you already know of the course you want to add to your collection, search for it by name!

Search results will include ratings and reviews from other iDiscGolf users. If there aren't any ratings for a course, try it out and be the first one to leave a review for others to read!

Once you've found a course you'd like to play on, you have the option to download ready to play course data. While not all course data is guaranteed to be accurate or complete, in most cases it will serve as an excellent starting point for a new round. This data will be modified from time to time, so check any courses you download occasionally for updates.

If for some reason you can't find existing course data for a given course, you can create a new course which will be stored locally on the device.

Ready to play? Start a new round or continue a previous one. While playing you can easily navigate from one hole to the next. You can also use iDiscGolf's Hole Launcher to jump from a hole at the beginning of the course to one at the end without having to navigate through all those in-between.

If you want to get a good overview of the round in progress, check out iDiscGolf's Score Card. The Score Card for iDiscGolf was designed specifically to accommodate as many golfers as you can throw at it. A typical 18 hole course will use two pages of 9 holes, while the Score Card is capable of handling "Course Configurations" with up to 99 "Hole Configurations".

iDiscGolf has two terms which may initially be confusing to some but will soon prove to be a very powerful concept.

Instead of treating each Course as a collection of Holes, iDiscGolf treats each Course as having one or more "Course Configurations", each of which consists of one or more "Hole Configurations".

Before we look at those two terms, lets note that each Hole as we know it has at least one real-world physical Basket and one real-world physical Tee, all of which have a real-world location associated with them. Some courses will have multiple Tees and potentially multiple Baskets per Hole. So, a Course of 18 holes could have a total of 36 physical Tees but only 18 physical Baskets. This is where "Hole Configurations" come into play.

What is a Hole Configuration you may be asking? A Hole Configuration is simply a pairing of a physical Tee with a physical Basket. Each Hole Configuration has a corresponding par and distance associated with it.

A Course Configuration is simply a collection of Hole Configurations arranged in a specific order.

When you create a Round in iDiscGolf, you will have the option to edit the Round's Course Configuration.

When playing a round you can easily add throws for each golfer. Additionally, you can associate each throw w/ a penalty or make it as a putt. This can be done in the drop down interface after the throw is added, or by toggling on the "red flag" for a penalty and/or the "blue disc" for a putt before pressing the "+" add button. This option is simply a shortcut provided for those who don't want to use the drop down on every golfer while playing.

After you've played your game, you can send a complete score card to whoever you want via email. Additionally you can attach a CSV file with the results of the round. If you would like to share only the CSV file, you may do that as well.
