Golden Golf Club launches new free app

The Golden Golf Club has brought in some new technology to make your golfing experience that much better.

The Golden Golf Club has brought in some new technology to make your golfing experience that much better.

If you have an iPhone or an android phone, you can download the Golden Golf Club app for free.

“We launched a new app at the end of last season, just a soft launch to get it out there and test it,” said Graeme Kreiner, head professional at the Golden Golf Club. “It went really well.”

The new app allows you to book Tee Times online, share score cards, and even track your location on a GPS.

“So if I’m playing with people who are in a different group, I can put my scorecard up, and my friend can put his scorecard up. We tried it last year, it was actually pretty fun for texting back and forth. You can get a little trash talking going,” said Kreiner.

“I use it myself, especially for the GPS. It’s really accurate.”

The app’s GPS can tell you, down to the yard, how far away you are from each bunker, the front of the green, the back of the green, and of course the hole.

The Golden Golf Club is already gearing up for a early start to the season. The driving range opened this past weekend, and they tentatively have their Spring Scramble booked for April 28.
