As golfers, we love the thrill of adding a competitive twist to our rounds when we hit the course with our friends. It's all about that friendly banter, the excitement of pushing each other to do better, and the pure joy of sharing those memorable moments. And with the Golf GameBook app in hand, you can take all that to a whole new level. Who doesn't love a bit of friendly rivalry after all?

What makes Golf GameBook unique is that you can create and manage both single or multi-round tournaments easily for your friends – and even host events with up to 72 players! Spice it up with fun contests like Closest to Pin or Longest Drive. The app combines the scores on the live leaderboard from all rounds, giving your tournament a pro-tour feel.

GPS - Navigating with accuracy

GPS devices can be expensive, but with the built-in GPS feature in Golf GameBook, you get hole overviews that allow you to plan your shots and check distances to any spot on the course no matter where you're teeing off in the world.

Another fun feature allows you to measure your shots and share them with friends. For example, when you hit that perfect, 300-yard drive on the green on a short par 4!

Live Leaderboard - Experience the thrill

Enjoy the excitement of live leaderboards across all game formats and contests in real-time!

Live leaderboards make the game more thrilling when you feel like you’re in the middle of the action and can see how your fellow competitors are getting on. You can also follow your friends’ games live and cheer them on from wherever you are when you’re not physically on the course with them.

Golf GameBook can be downloaded for free, while a Gold Membership gives access to all features for £39.99 per year (less than a cup of coffee once a month). You can also try Gold for free for 14 days, and experience the benefits yourself.
