GolfAR application: Enhance the golfing experience



Since the rapid advancement of technology, AR integration has become an essential and integral part of a wide variety of fields, including golf. With this fusion of tradition and technology, golf players have a better experience than ever before.  

This case study will demonstrate how BAP addresses these challenges and develops a powerful application that enhances golfers’ experiences each time they play. 

1. Challenges 

Embarking on the mission to support golf players presents an exhilarating challenge. Providing crucial information on ever-changing weather conditions, wind dynamics, grass-field specifics, and the undulating slopes of the golf course demands a keen understanding of the game’s intricacies.  

As we strive to grasp the precise position of the player, a dynamic virtual grid system becomes more challenging. It will reveal the nuanced shifts in height, particularly in the near vicinity of the holes, by overlaying the intricate contours of the course.   

The problem is more than just providing data, players must be empowered, and a friendly, intuitive application must be created as well.  

2. Solutions 

To tackle the challenge of assisting golf players, we’ve devised a  set of solutions:   

The first step has been to integrate with a weather API, allowing us to access accurate weather data in real-time. A mobile augmented reality application has been designed and developed using Unity to take technology to the next level. A versatile Android and iOS app has been created that has worked seamlessly across a wide range of mobile and tablet devices.

Additionally, we have been developing a sophisticated location algorithm to ensure precise player placement. A customized algorithm is employed in conjunction with standard GPS signals in order to achieve a remarkable accuracy of 2 to 3 meters.   

The combination of these solutions promises to revolutionize how golf players interact with their game environment with cutting-edge, user-friendly solutions. 

3. Output 

This solution reflects our commitment to leveraging technology to elevate and enrich the sport of golf for players at every level.  By integrating this technology, golf players can make more informed decisions, optimizing their performance and enjoyment on the golf course. Moving forward, the use of AR is one that we are confident can lead to greater efficiencies and next-level experiences for users.
