New iPhone Application - 'Golf Rules Quiz'

It was back in January of this year that I wrote about a new application for referencing the Rules of Golf for iPhones and iPod touch users. Little did I know then that I would be blogging on a new application, ‘Golf Rules Quiz’, for the iPhone and iPod touch, for which I have provided the content.

‘Golf Rules Quiz’ has been developed by Irish, remote eLearning company, Ossidian Technologies, with multiple choice questions, answers, references and
explanations provided by me. With their history and experience in computer-based training programs Ossidian have proved to be an ideal partner in this venture.

Each quiz consists of 20 randomised situations experienced on the golf course, selected dynamically from a repository of several hundred. The questions are in a multiple choice format offering four alternate answers. Your challenge is to pick the correct one. An explanation of the correct ruling is delivered after each question has been answered, ensuring that the user will absorb and obtain a better understanding of the Rules of Golf while entertaining themselves testing their knowledge. As players advance within each quiz they can keep track of their scores. They can then see how they perform over a period of time, as they repeatedly assess their improving knowledge over a number of different quizzes and compare their results with their friends.



Golf Rules Quiz will definitely help you to understand and absorb the Rules of Golf in a most enjoyable and entertaining way, and at just €3.99 ($4.99) is a must for anyone who enjoys golf and who has access to an iPhone, or similar. It can be purchased direct from the iTunes store (search for ‘Golf Rules Quiz’) or at iPhone Applications.

Please let me know how you get on with it.

This is an incredibly useful app for both starters and also for players who just want to brush up and make sure they know everything. Add this to a stroke tracker app and anyone is good to go.

Thank you for that comment. I know that the developer, Ossidian Technologies, would be delighted if you would post a review, or at least a rating for Golf Rules Quiz, on the iTunes App Store.
