MyPinPoint Golf app launched

PinPoint Golf has announced the launch of the MyPinPoint Golf app, which will revolutionise the way golf courses communicate pin placements to players.

The app - released in January on Android and iOS platforms - will enable greenskeepers to enter flagstick locations on their phones.

The application will then transmit data back to the golf club's office, facilitating easier and quicker production of pin sheets.

MyPinPoint also publishes the data direct to a cloud, enabling golfers to download hole locations - free of charge - to their own smartphones.

"For clubs, testing only £250 a year, MyPinPoint has the potential to pay for itself very quickly, just in savings from printing pin sheets," said Marcus Lovelock, the company's General Manager.

"But, more than that, it allows golf courses to provide a far better service to their players."

Golf courses like Bearwood Lakes, Broadstone, Royal Dornoch, Turnberry and Walton Heath have already installed the app as part of its testing process.

High-profile approval has also come from Gordon McKie, the Old Course in St Andrews' Course Manager.

"We have been working with PinPoint Golf at St Andrews Links for a few years and recently upgraded to the MyPinPoint hole location system, which we have found very easy to use," he said.

"The system is reliable, user-friendly, and pin positions can be set and downloaded from anywhere on the course. This makes the greenkeeper's life much easier."

The app also keeps a complete log of all pin locations selected since its installation, enabling greenkeepers to easily identify areas of overuse.

The MyPinPoint Greenkeeper app can be purchased online at www.mypinpointgolf.com

Individuals can download the free MyPinPoint Golfer app from the App Store or Google Play.
