We're always looking for new ways to serve the community. Golf web sites
have always been generally closed in regards to their data. We intend to
take things into the modern age where data serves everyone. Below you'll
see what we have in store and how we plan to expand our services.
In addition to the descriptions, we'll give regular updates on the status
of these projects. Also, let us know if
you have any suggestions.
Karma comes in many colors. In the near future you'll be able to decide
the fate of edits and changes to the courses you love in order to reward
the bloke that did it, or punish the chump that messed things up. The point
system will help us determine who and what to promote on the site, and
likewise, what to downvote into oblivion.
Status: Karma for site edits is working. Still to come:
voting on edits.
Yes, you need stinkin' badges. We all like to have a pat on the back to
let us know we're heading in the right direction and making progress.
We're going to implement a system to help people get started, and make you
sparkle for being a Rock Star!
Let me tell you a story about the course I played last week. No, really,
it was awesome! Want to share your stories, give feedback, and let others
know what to expect? We'll have that.
What's a golf course database without the ability to track your scores,
get simulated handicap ratings, and track the progress of your game? We'll
let you store all of that here and give you tips on where you can improve
and show you what you're doing right.
What good is all this data if you can't use it? Want to integrate
OpenStrokes with your web site or app? We're going to provide free and paid
levels of access to the database through a well defined API.
The Pro's use them on every round. You've seen them, but they're about as
protected as Fort Knox. We want to bring the yardage book to the common
golfer. We'll be developing a dead simple way of creating yardage books on
our site and sharing them with others. Rate them, download them, print
them out, and use them to show up your foursome at the Myrtle Beach outing
