Golf Meets the NetBeans Platform

Record your golf games on the NetBeans Platform via the brand new & free GolfCVS by Ulrich Mayring (click to enlarge):

I'm interested in finding out whether the above is available as an open sourced application, in which case it could serve as a generic framework for various kinds of sport applications. One application that could share that framework would be Pursuit, a NetBeans Platform application for recording the results of cycling races (click to enlarge):

In the generic sporting framework, you wouldn't work with a "Node", but with an "Event" and a "Player" and a "Score", etc. These would be predefined in the framework and the developer would simply extend those generic classes to match their business needs. There'd also be predefined graphs and various kinds of score cards, which could all be customized and extended, but which would provide a lot of functionality out of the box. Onward to a generic framework for recording sporting achievements!
