Golf GameBook in a three-year partnership with British Junior Golf Tour
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM / HELSINKI, FINLAND, October 5, 2022 – Golf GameBook has partnered with British Junior Golf Tour (BJGT) for the next three years in an effort to provide a unified and holistic tournament experience for junior golfers in the UK and beyond. Golf GameBook will become the Official Live Scoring Partner of BJGT, which will be using Golf GameBook’s Tournament Manager software.
“We are really proud to partner up with BJGT and to ensure an elevation for the Tour with extended golf tournament experiences for the juniors and their supporting teams.” – says Fredrik Lindgren, Commercial Director, GB&I at Golf GameBook.
Extending the experience
The agreement covers the use of Tournament Manager in BJGT events in the UK for the next three years and in the international World Junior Golf Championship tournament, which in 2023 will be played in February at Amendoeira Golf Resort, Portugal. The Tournament Manager, which works seamlessly with the Golf GameBook application, will provide juniors playing on the BJGT, as well as their coaches, friends and families, with new tools to follow the tournaments and their favourite players.
In events organised with Tournament Manager, players can enter scores and view the leaderboard in real-time on the course through the Golf GameBook application. The live leaderboard can also be seen by friends, family, coaches and fans in the application, on the tournament website, and on big screens in the club house.
“Golf GameBook and Tournament Manager are a great addition to the Tour. People find the platform easy to use and it nicely supports our goal to grow BJGT and to increase the size of the World Junior Championship into a major event on the junior golf calendar.“ – Steve Adams, Tour Director of British Junior Golf Tour.
Growing the game with juniors
With over 140 000 registered users in the UK and over 1,6 million rounds played to date, Golf GameBook continues to expand its offering within the market through this partnership.
“The app already has a strong market share in the Nordics. The cooperation with BJGT is a great addition to our “Growing the Game” concept, which, in Sweden and Finland, culminates in season-long junior programmes with our partners there. Together with BJGT we now take a big step forward for junior golf in the UK, where we are expecting further growth in the coming years.” – says Lindgren.
