Christmas time is here again and we are approaching the end of year 2013. For us here at GameBook it has been a pretty great year. Our community of golfers has kept growing and we’ve had the pleasure to be involved in some big events around the world as well as form some new partnerships….
Christmas is just around the corner and this year (just like every other year) I am struggling (just like most people are) with finding the right gifts to friends and family. If your near and dear ones are golfers you can always opt for golf related girfts. Naturally the thing that makes every golfer happy…
In addition to the individually played classic game formats (introduced in part one of this series) GameBook also offers a variety of game formats for teams. While golf is an individual sport – without a question – golf is also very social. And every once in a while it’s good to have somebody else to…
In this blog Golf GameBook’s staff will discuss the app and Golf related topics – all for the sport we love.
We believe every golfer deserves a gallery to share experiences with other golfers and a diary to store their precious golf memories. That’s what GameBook is all about.
Golf GameBook app is like a clubhouse in your pocket. We offer you the most effective and social way to keep score in golf allowing you to connect with other golfers and share live results, comments, photos and videos – no matter where you are, on and off the golf course.

Team formats on GameBook
Scramble is an all-time favorite for team golf outings. Each player in a group tees off on a hole. After each shot, the best shot is selected and all players play the next shot from that spot, until the ball is holed. One team score is recorded. With GameBook, you can play scramble with groups of two, three or four players. If you’re going to play with a four-some, try a two-person scramble match.
Better Ball is defitenetely one of the most popular team games in golf. It is a two-person Best Ball (also known as Four Ball), where each player plays his or her own ball throughout the round, and on each hole the better score serves as the team score. If you’re going to play with a four-some, try a Better Ball match!
In Best Ball, each player plays his or her own ball throughout the round, and on each hole 1 or 2 best scores serve as the team score. With GameBook, you can play Best Ball with groups of three or four players.
Ready to rumble? GameBook has a four-person Irish Rumble available. It is a Best Ball format played with Stableford points where the best single score is recorded for the first six holes (1-6); the best two scores are recorded for the next six holes (7-12); the best three scores are recorded on the next five holes (13-17); and on the last hole (18), all four scores are recorded for the team. GameBook calculates scoring for you automatically so you can try it out without being a math genius!
