Real Life Disc Golf

April 7, 2013 |  by  |  News/Blog  |  No Comments

It’s finally disc golf season in Pennsylvania, and we had to take a break to post something n0n Apple related. Nuclear Nova Software is located  on a two acres plot of land, and we’ve taken advantage of every last square foot to create a new disc golf course layout every year. We currently have four metal baskets scattered along with several orange/yellow stake targets, together they make 54 holes! Below is the latest scorecard. Distances may seem a bit low compared to public courses (2013 has not been scoped yet), but we make up for the small layout with obstacles and required turns. The current record is -6 on the 2011 course and -3 on the 2012 course. The 2013 versions should have the potential for the lowest scores due to less par 2′s and more par 4/5/6′s, but it also has more risk/reward shots which should keep the average scores from getting too low. Now if only Meadville was large enough to have a disc golf scene we could start a league!

Device Usage

GL Golf device usage over the last year. I imagine the current data looks a little different since a good percentage of users would have upgraded over the last year. From a development perspective it’s nice to finally see some older devices being phased out, it makes adding features and graphical enhancements easier without worrying about killing too many old devices.
