I am a long-time software developer and have been playing disc golf for five years and love the sport. As a developer, I never had the opportunity to create a website. I decided to take an extended leave of absence to learn web development and decided that a fun project would be to create a disc golf league or group score keeper. I play twice week, with a few friends at Northside Park in Gainesville, Florida. We had always speculated on whether we were getting better and who was winning the most rounds. Thus the idea was born for a disc golf group score keeping program. The site allows players to be added, groups to be formed and then makes it trivial to record a round for the group. When a round in added, the players in the group are optionally emailed a summary of round. The site calculates lots of stats for the group including standings based on raw scores plus handicap scores. I have only entered a handful of courses close to Gainesville, but courses can also be added. There are options on how you want your group's handicap calculated, how many scores to include, whether the group is private or public etc. There is a help section at the web site that explains the features in more detail.
The site was available in March to a limited group for alpha testing. All the planned features are now complete. The site is now going into beta test. During beta-test, any problems found will be fixed and improvements to the site will be made. If anyone has any suggestions this is the best time to make them. Any and all comments (good or bad), or problems are welcomed and appreciated. My hope during beta test is to get at least 10-15 groups to use the site. My plan is to make this a free site, that allows a group of disc golf players to get an idea how they are playing over time, plus keep stats so you can share with the group and give each other some good natured ribbing. The site is www.rbqsoft.com/discgolf
. If the sites starts to get some use, I will move it to its own domain.
So if you are interested in keeping stats for a league or group, please give it a try.
