How to Score Golf Groups with Mobitee App

It’s official – Labor Day weekend is upon us and summer vacation is over. There is plenty of sunshine and warm weather left to enjoy a round of golf this weekend and, here at Mobitee, we have a great suggestion.

Spend this last summer weekend in the company of your friends playing golf on your favorite course and let Mobitee show you a few games for foursomes!

A few posts ago we told you about the golf games Mobitee app offers for one and two players. Now it’s time to tell you about types of games for three and four players.

Mobitee is the only golf app on the market which can boast such a large variety of choices on how IMG_0047[1]to organize the round.

With our golf app, you can partake in serious official game formats such as individual stroke and stableford or just have fun.

Here are additional game types which are available for three and four players:

-          Split sixes

-          Scramble

-          Best ball

-          Foursomes

-          Alternate shot

Foursomes and Alternate shot can be played only if there four players in in the group. Split sixes is designed only for three players. Scramble and Best ball can be played either by three or four players.

In this post, let’s talk more about Split sixes. This game format enables you to make a friendly competition totaling three players.

IMG_0051[1]

 

On each hole, six points are at stake and three golfers split those points. At the end of the round, high points wins. If you choose to wager with Mobitee, payouts are based on each players’ accrued points.

Golfer with the low score on the hole gets 4 points, middle score on the hole gets 2 points and high score on the hole gets 0 points.

What about tie scores?

If two players tie for the best score, they receive 3 points each.
If two players tie for second best score, points are allocated 4 – 1 – 1.

It’s that easy…and also remains a fun challenge as Mobitee will help you score the round so you can keep your head in the game!

A FREE Trial version of Mobitee is available for Android and iPhones as well as the Premium version. Which is the right Mobitee for You? Premium versus Free Mobitee Comparison.

Extreme 19th – Experience the Hardest Golf Hole Ever!

One of the most exotic, also the most extreme holes in golf is located in South Africa. The so called “Extreme 19th” is the highest (altitude difference between tee-ground…and the green is 400 meters) and longest par-3 hole in the world.Extreme_19

Although nobody even thinks about the statistics on this hole, everybody dreams of just seeing it, to make at least one shot and to enjoy marvelous scenery from the top of the mountain. Hole No. 19 is part of the club “Legends Golf and Safari Resort” in the wildlife area Entabeni Safari in Limpopo Province (SA). The idea of creating such an unusual hole belongs to the Englishman Graham Cooke, and the designer is David Riddle.IMG_0544[1]

The tee ground is located on mountain Hanglip and the only way to get there is by helicopter, unless you are a skilled mountain climber.

It is because of the height that the flight of the ball takes nearly half a minute!

But, despite the sharp descent and such a long distance, it is hardly possible to lose the ball as there are five cameras following its flight. Moreover each ball is equipped with a GPS microchip.

The fairway is seeded with Bermuda grass and designed in such a manner that the ball, having reached it, rolls down to the green. The green is designed in the shape of the African continent and the shape is the exact copy of the African continent map. Which country your ball lands depends exceptionally on your skills!

IMG_0546[1]

This 19th, usually considered the “Clubhouse snack bar” is an additional hole for the regulation eighteen holes of the Legend, which is one of the over 35,000 worldwide courses available in Mobitee.

The main course was created by the collaborative design of many professional golfers Padraig Harrington, Trevor Immelman, Sergio García, Bernhard Langer, Colin Montgomerie, Justin Rose, Vijay Singh, K.J. Choi and Retief Goosen.

The greens fee for the 19th hole is 6700 south African roads which is 625 $, the cost includes transfer by helicopter, six special balls and an instructor.

A lot of celebrities played this particular golf hole. Morgan Freeman did not just play it but also made par, which is extremely difficult. The leaderboard can be found on the official website of the club.

One more interesting fact is that the resort offers one million dollars to the first one who makes hole-in-one! Until now nobody has been able to win this enticing prize. Challenge this hole together with Mobitee GPS Golf Assistant. And, after you have played this course using Mobitee, do not forget to rate the course right inside our app!

New Mobitee GPS Golf App Features!

Early in 2014, Mobitee GPS Golf App presented new features for iPhone users; our big update for Android is in the final stage of development at the moment. As we promised in the previous post, we are going to give you more detailed information on some of the fresh features of Mobitee; Course review and Tee box. Along with aerial view, these features are extremely useful for those golfers who like to test new golf clubs.

Golf Course Reviews MobiteeLet’s start with Course review.

On the Clubhouse screen you will see the average rating of your chosen golf course.

Click on it and you will see overall ratings of other Mobitee users who already made their choice as well as their comments.

Ratings consist of six points: Field Condition, Club House, Team, Prices, Restaurant and Equipment. You are able to rate each parameter from one to five stars. We would also appreciate if you leave a comment regarding the course, so that future players will be able to learn from your experience.

To add your own comments, click on “edit” button on the top right corner of the screen and speak your opinion. We created this feature to make our app more informative and help give you first impressions of the course.

Now let’s have a look at the Tee Box feature.

Our Team sometimes cannot find correct information regarding tees (slope and SSS values). In this case you can add them yourself.

Click on the “Tee Box” button to see all the tees available in the app and the overall length for each of them.

If a color relating to a marker is missing (Senior, Women) you can easily add it. This feature is not only slope and course rating, it also gives length of hole. If it is missing the text is highlighted in red color.

Don’t worry if lengths are missing. You will see all the actual hole lengths on the aerial view screen. As you can see, this info is more statistical. You can also use this information to evaluate (based on the overall length info) how much time you will approximately need to play eighteen holes (or just front or back nines).

Mobitee Tee Box ScreenMobitee Course-Slope Rating

If you want to edit the existing Tee Box,simply click on it. At the top of the screen you will see slope and course rating values which are needed to get net scores.

Below you will see hole info: Number, Par, Hcp and Length. Click on any of the holes to open edit scroller, make your edits and do not forget to save the changes. At the moment this data is stored only on your devices, but very soon we’ll start to save it on our server as well so all of our customers are able to use it.

We hope you enjoy our golf blog and look forward to our future updates. If you have questions about Mobitee GPS Golf App, please contact us at: info@mobitee.com.

Mobitee Free, One or Premium – Which of Our Apps is Best for YOUR Golf Game?

The twenty-first century brought with it a lot of technical improvements to all areas of life and golf is no exception. Long ago, players had at their disposal just the minimum required equipment which were clubs and golf balls…what about now?

Can you even imagine a round of golf without first practicing with some of the new golf training aids or, how about without a golf GPS application?

You say you have never tried an app to help enhance your golf game? Why not investigate Mobitee GPS Golf Assistant – the easiest and best golf app on the market with the most features.

Today I would like to discuss three smartphone applications Mobitee can provide for golfers: Mobitee Free, Mobitee One and Mobitee Premium.

Here are the details of each version of our Golf App:

IMG_0332

Let’s begin with the Free version.

Free gives you access to all of the golf courses listed in the app, allowing you to play the first five holes.

The Free version was created to introduce Mobitee to those who have never heard about the app or someone who might be considering purchasing one of the versions of our app.

The free version allows players to test all the app features, such as rangefinder, club advice, flyover, scorecard and lots more. Once you reach the golf course details screen, you will be offered a choice of four options: unlimited access, one golf course and a voucher (for French courses you will see ffgolf offer) or five holes to try (free trial).

Unlimited access will redirect you to the page for Mobitee Premium version on iTunes.

1 golf course leads to the page of Mobitee One.

Voucher. Mobitee started a collaboration with various golf clubs. This option allows you to unlock one golf course free of charge using voucher code which you can get from your golf club, association or federation . In case your golf club doesn’t yet carry our voucher, ask them to contact us at info@mobitee.com and consider our cooperation.

5 holes try lets you to play first five holes.

So if you are still hesitating whether to buy the premium app or not, you can download this version absolutely for free and just test it. We’re sure you will enjoy and appreciate the app.

Mobitee One. The cost is $10.99.

The offer for Mobitee One is for those who play mostly on their home course.

The app has all the features which the other two versions have – the difference between Mobitee Free and Premium app is that ONE includes one unlocked golf course, the one where you can play all of the holes with no limits. Find a golf course you want to unlock and go to its clubhouse details screen.

After you press the next button you will see a pop-up message with three choices:

Mobitee Premium (leads to Mobitee Premium on iTunes),

Unlock this golf course (unlocks the selected course) and…

No, thanks (if you want to change your choice).

You also have the possibility to unlock other golf courses in addition via in-app-purchases. The price of one course unlock is $4.99. All of the courses you unlock are automatically added to your list of favorites. If you do not travel for golf much, this offer may be the best choice for you.

Mobitee Premium. This is the full version which allows you to play all the +35,000 worldwide golf courses with no limits. It’s a one-time payment with no yearly or monthly subscriptions, and with free updates. The cost is $24.99. This offer is the best choice for those who like to travel all over the world and explore lots of picturesque golf courses.

Choose the best offer for you, and let us know what you think of our app. Still have any questions? Contact us at contact@mobitee.com for more information.
