Radial Golf …quite a diversion

RG playstore feature graphic copyThis is quite a diversion from my normal activity…a golf scoring mobile application. All the design, photography and concept is mine of course, but I have had the great pleasure to have worked with Loichai studio who have made this dream a reality for me.

I started playing golf just over two years ago and looked for a scoring application  to record my results. The ones I found were not what I wanted so I started to record them in my own unique way on a sheet of radial or polar graph paper my father had given me when I was young.

The idea is that the centre of the wheel is a par score of 72 and the outer edge is set at 120. Every time you play you add another point to the curve in a clockwise direction. Ideally, as your scores come down you will create a ‘spiral of improvement’ and eventually hit the centre. I found this visual idea to be such a great incentive to get out and play, that I decided to create it as a mobile application so beginners like me, as well as more established golfers, could do the same.
It has come a long way from my original graph and now looks like this:-

As you add your own courses to the list you colour code them so you can also see progress on those individual courses as well :-

All the information is fully editable so you can add all your past scoring history, add photos, notes and maybe even excuses!

Radial Golf is available here in the Google Play store (for Android) and here in the Apple store.

I have a dedicated website for Radial Golf here
