WCGC creates a Global engagement platform for corporate golf powered by Golf Gamebook.
World Corporate Golf Challenge has entered into a multi-year partnership with Golf GameBook in an effort to further enhance the digital ecosystem for WCGC and its licensees. Golf GameBook will provide the live scoring across WCGC events, along with a year-round engagement platform to enable interaction between participating corporations across the globe.
“Partnering with Golf GameBook has enabled us to make a significant leap into the digital environment. In addition to the live scoring, their solutions will allow us to maintain an active dialogue with participants across the entire year. These types of engagement solutions not only grow the game of golf but also allow us to develop meaningful relationships and strong networks amongst participants.” says José Guerra, Chairman of WCGC.
“Our ambition has always been to grow the game by making it more fun and social amongst participants. Our recently launched Tournament Manager software allows world class entities such as WCGC to create digitized end-to-end corporate golf day solutions that will live beyond the actual tournament play. By connecting first as golfers, future endeavours in for example the business space becomes even easier.” says Mikko Manerus, Founder of Golf GameBook.
Tournament Manager software
Additionally, Golf GameBook recently introduced the Tournament Manager software, which allows golf clubs, brands and event organizers to create a turnkey solution for any type of golf event. This digital solution allows for safe and contactless scoring as well as the possibility of running large scale virtual tournaments.
“It has been great to witness how golf clubs around the world have made rapid changes to embrace digital solutions that allow for contactless scoring as well as large scale virtual participation.” says Emilia Ottela, CBO of GGB
