Global Golfers Network

The virtual Golf Club lets find golf partners for a game, competition or dating. The Matchplayer combines social media world with social golf life.

The Matchplayer

The project idea arrived in response to the lack of golf communities to find a game partner.

Project idea

The Matchplayer allows users to find partners for dating, playing and competing. They can make an appointment and track their score inside the app.

Target audience

The products are meant to have a global distribution. The starting point is Europe. The Matchplayer will grow user base from initially planned 20,000 users in first six months to 500,000 users in five years. Around 10% of them will be active each day.

Project challenges
  • Simultaneous development for two platforms
  • Global presence and fast scalability
  • Some features should be supported offline
  • Responsive admin panel

Main features of the project

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.

User acquisition and engagement functionality

The Matchplayer has many options for user engagement. There is a Newsfeed where users can share news, local and global ranking, in-app chats, friends invites, professional golf equipment shop, possibility to select and order a golf tour, etc. The abundance of additional features guarantees user involvement and put scalability challenge to developers.

We’re very happy with Androswift. They seem to work in the way that we do, and we have a close collaboration with them. Every day we talk to the developers and outline what needs to be done.

We found Androswift had played the main role in helping with our customized web development, web applications and plugin customization. Having Androswift on onboard gave us the confidence to say yes to all jobs! Requested project edits were returned quickly.

I was at first worried about doing business with developers in another country as I am based in the UK, but I had spoken to a guy from Androswift called Kalpesh, who assured me that using Androswift for all my development work would not be a risk at all and they have proven me right.
