Courses often have a practice range for patrons to use to practice their swing. Of the utmost importance is how far away each target is. Gallus apps are equipped with a Driving Range functionality that allows the user to utilize their phone as a GPS locator.
Targets will be listed on the screen in the form of a map, with each target displaying a yardage from the user's phone.
Admin Dashboard Setup
Setting Up A Driving Range
There are two ways to set up driving ranges, either through a desktop computer or by manually walking out on the range with a GPS-enabled smart phone.
On A Desktop Computer
This method is simpler and will work for most cases.
Enter a Name for the range (i.e., "Whisky Barrel Practice Range").
Enter the Address of the facility and choose from the dropdown.
To map out the perimeter of the range, click Perimeter and click on a corner of the range.
Move the cursor up to the next corner, then click.
Continue clicking on the map until the perimeter line has been filled in (by clicking where you originally started the perimeter).
Next, click Target. A box will appear on the right side of the screen for Text (manager reference only), Text Color, and Marker Color. These will control the colors of each target. Once the information on the right is correct, click a target on the map.
Continue adding targets as necessary.
Lastly, add a Center Stall by clicking it and choosing a location in the hitting area. (This is the location the app will default to if a user is not sharing their location with us.)
Below Address, make sure the box next to Active is checked.
LAST STEP: Click HERE to go to your home screen. Click the Driving Range button and on the ensuing page, click the box next to Display and hit Save.
On A Mobile Phone
This method is more complicated and should only be used in cases that have poor or inaccurate maps imagery. You will take a cell phone out on the range and use its location.
On a desktop computer, follow steps 1-7 and 10-12 in the previous section to map out the perimeter of your range and the center stall.
