UDisc has interactive maps for over 70% of the world's courses. Shown when viewing a scorecard, these maps help you navigate by displaying your location, the distance to the basket, and the path to the next tee. You can drop custom markers to assist with strategic decisions such as calculating the distance over a body of water. This is useful when deciding whether to "go for it" or lay up, and may well save you a disc or two.
314 ft. from teepad to basket, and you can see the teepad for hole 2 is just past the basket along the water
Maps are displayed inside the scorecard while you keep score. You can also view maps on any course's page when you select a specific layout.
If you do not see a map while keeping score, tap the map icon in the upper right to show it. If you instead see a Create Map indicator, a map needs to be created for this layout. Keep reading for more details on this process.
If the map is not displayed, tap the map icon to show it.
While scoring a round, you can tap and hold your finger anywhere on the map to drop a marker. The marker will show you the distance from the teepad to the marker, the marker to the basket, and your location to the marker.
From the comfort of my home, the nearly 2 million ft. distance to this marker might be a bit out of reach. However, if I were actually playing a round, I might decide that 207 ft. from the tee to the marker is a very reachable layup, leaving me an easy 121 ft. upshot to the basket.
If you see a large Create Map button when viewing a scorecard, no one has mapped the current layout. It's easy and fast to do this during a round without even exiting the scorecard!
Create Map indicates that no one has mapped this layout yet
When you tap Create Map, you are shown instructions to indicate the location of the teepad and the basket, as well as any doglegs in the fairway. Please view our article on layouts for a more in depth explanation of using the editor.
Creating a hole map is as easy as dragging and dropping the teepad and basket locations
Once you have mapped the course and scored the final hole, you will see an option to Review Map. Touch this and you will be taken to the full layout page, where you can submit your layout for review. The review process is usually very quick. You can read more about it here.
Reviewing the map is the final step
