Challenge

Golf specific conditions, e.g., unstable internet connection, which makes it difficult to update the current results without actual game data lost. Intricate game mechanics: golf-specific features such as ‘press’, ‘auto-press’, wagers system, as well as some tricky golf rules-changing features: route-valuation, possibility to change or reset old results, etc. Refusal to use external API for statistics processing, some tricky calculation, e.g. handicap.

Solution

‘Batch update’ - all playing holes are updating simultaneously after each stroke, adding timestamp system for update live score. Separating actual play data update on all holes from calculation of final scores for holes played, cumulative score update for each completed hole.

The database stores all the statistics for each game for each player, summary data is obtained according to filters.
