Mr Alan Shaw
Past President, Cumbria Union of Golf Clubs
A recent initiative by the Cumbria union of golf clubs in conjunction with the Cumbria Ladies golf Association was the creation of a mobile phone app. This was designed to market all 30 golf clubs in Cumbria and encourage golfers to the area. Buzy Bee Software services was chosen to generate the app and working closely with the golf union and association have done an excellent job in creating the product. The app is both technically and aesthetically excellent, benefitting from the company’s expertise in software and graphic design. The product is now available in both Android and Apple formats and is currently being taken up on a country wide circulation. The App is already being used around the world, having the capability of generating a recognised golf handicap certificate as well as marketing Cumbrian Golf. I would encourage any person or organisation contemplating any similar venture to consider Buzy Bee software. Being a small but very capable company they are very good to work with and we as a county have been very satisfied with the product.

About the Client

 

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.

 

Requirements

 

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.

Our Solution

 

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.

Additional Work

 

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.
