Main features of the project

See how the development team implemented the client’s requirements

01
Dealing with searching and matching of users
A search engine inside the apps has multiple filters in each of the three modes: Competition, Play or Date. The main matching criteria are distance, age, handicap, and time of the day. If there is no match in the area, the distance radius is extended. Users also can find and join a golf club in the area.

The way users roles are defined and differ
Users in the app have different access modes which depend on whether they are logged in and their subscription type. The user can authorize via any social network or use only a limited functionality. In case the user has a premium account, they can create and post news, invite and challenge other players, etc.
