The Cumbria Union of Golf clubs is made up of 30 fabulous golf clubs across the region. With a mixture of parkland, links and heathland courses, there is a golf course to suit everyone. Situated in the North of England encompassing the Lake District National Park, and parts of the Yorkshire Dales, Cumbria Union of Golf Clubs has one of the most beautiful backdrops in the country.
The Union’s main responsibilities is to support and promote amateur golf throughout Cumbria, growing membership at club level and hosting a variety of competitions for the county. Their aim is to give golfers the experience of playing in competitions at a higher level expanding their knowledge and confidence to further their own personal goals.
We were tasked with creating an easy to use mobile app for Android and iOS devices. The App required to be updated by each of the Unions 32 members and needed to include details about open competitions, the clubs latest news and so on.
A web site would also need to be created to direct interested parties to the correct section on Apple and Googles App stores.
We delivered an easy to use, quality mobile app that provides its users with a quick and convenient way to keep up to date on the latest goings on in golf around Cumbria. It displays weather forecasts for each location, green fees and facilities available at clubs along with access to information about the latest open competitions and fixtures so that golfers can easily plan their days out around each of their favourite courses.
The mobile App also provides a full Handicap Certificate so that members of the CDH scheme can obtain their player discounts on green fees without having to carry an additional membership card.
Along with all these great features the App allows golfers to record their performance on a scorecard for each golf club so they can see where they need to improve as their golfing experience grows.
Along with the design of the promotional web site Buzy Bee Software Services also designed a range of promotional business cards to help promote the App. A QR Code was used so that people could scan the code and be taken straight to the Apps web site to download it from the respective App Stores.
