As we are entering the Early Order Program period of the year, it is also great to get equipped with an upgraded, improved decision support application the OnCourse.
For some of you, it might remind you Toro’s “The Internet of Turf” (a virtual ecosystem of Toro), but it is much more plus gives you the opportunity for networking or even utilize the wisdom of crowds. Toro Foundation is among the supporters of OnCourse application.
What can we get from the new OnCourse application?
- A practical one-stop solution that helps courses easily assess and record their practices, find ideas and guidance for improvement, and then promote their value to nature, resources, and community.
- Library: OnCourse provides golf with a collective system to build an expansive library of shared examples and anonymous data – giving the sport a considerable new bank evidence to strengthen golf’s image and influence.
The Golf Environment Organization invested in the usability of the application as well. They promise that the new OnCourse application has got an easier, faster interface plus:
- finding and sharing ideas,
- tracking progress,
- data storage and highlights,

The application development was supported among the others by:
