Mobitee Coexists with Wildlife at Entebbe Golf Club in Uganda, Africa

Wouldn’t it be a perfect day to stand just a mile from the equator, admire gorgeous Lake Victoria and do what you enjoy most – that is, play an engaging round of golf with Mobitee? Today we want to present you with the first African course in our golf blog, quite possibly one of the best courses in East Africa, where sport and nature come together – Entebbe Golf Club in Uganda.

WWildlife at Entebbe Golf Clubhat makes this golf course particularly inspiring is that it’s situated in the middle of a wildlife park. You will have to be careful on some of the holes not to hit the ball out of bounds straight into the adjoining Entebbe Zoo, complete with rhinos, monkeys and birds who may show a particular interest in your progress. An experience such as this is bound to be unforgettable and will most certainly add a delightfully scenic dimension to your golf game.

Taking about three and a half hours to complete and with a solid selection of 18 holes, this public golf course will be an enjoyable test for any golfer. A regular player on Entebbe Golf Club, Stuart Ritchie, gave his review on the Worldgolf.com website, “Entebbe is regarded as one of the better tracks in east Africa. It certainly rates highly in Uganda, vying with the Kampala course for No1 status.” Click here for Ritchies’ pictures of Entebbe Golf Club.

A Par 71, 6684-yard course with several long par 5s and two par 4s, doglegs, holes requiring drives to avoid trees (and wild animals), fairway bunkers waiting for perfect tee shots but also with broad fairways giving great birdie opportunities (providing the right club is chosen)… this is just an insight into the experience you will get playing in Entebbe Golf Club, cooled by a breeze from Lake Victoria!

Mobitee GPS Golf App asks, “Why Labor Over Distance?”

Mobitee Golf App Labor Day signifies the un-official end of summer. For many golfers, this weekend is a great opportunity to get together with the foursome before kids return to school and routine rules the roost. If you already have Mobitee GPS Golf Assistant set up on your Iphone or Android smart phone, pull up the golf course you will be playing and set up the automatic scorecard for up to four players, complete with handicap scoring that can be shared via email.

Mobitee Flyover feature Mobitee makes it easy to calculate distances to obstacles, doglegs, distance to front, center and back of the green using a precise GPS tool with moveable target. With our amazing flyover feature, get a bird’s eye view and see the golf hole you will be playing in advance. Your friends will be asking you for advice when they see you easily navigating the golf course with your Mobitee app.

Check out our new 30-second golf video describing more great features of Mobitee.

Going on a family vacation? Take Mobitee with you! Over 34,000 golf courses are available worldwide with more courses added every day and you can even reserve your tee time in advance. Check our list of golf courses and, if you don’t see yours listed, contact us: info@mobitee.com. Your course will be listed within 72 hours. You can also chat with Mobitee on Twitter and Facebook.

From Team Mobitee, have a fun Labor Day weekend.

How to Improve Your Golf Score with Mobitee Flyover Feature

Selecting an unfamiliar golf course to play for the first time is not an easy thing to do. You may first Google the golf course and do your required reading but then it’s off to the Clubhouse, bag in your trunk, raring to go.

You stretch a little, practice a bit on the greens, swing your golf club a few times and head to the first tee, but still the golf course remains unfamiliar to you.

Mobitee Flyover VideosOne more thing is needed (besides taking a deep breath and pulling out your lucky rabbit foot) for good golf course management – a map or aerial view of the holes. Mobitee flyover videos are incredibly helpful and cool in this case.

What is a flyover? A golf course flyover is a virtual tour showing every hole of a golf course as if you were flying in a plane stopping at each tee, fairway and green for a closer look. From tee to green, golf course flyovers provide users with a detailed view from hole one to eighteen showing the distance and layout of the course to plan shots before setting foot on the greens.

It is very simple to use this feature in Mobitee Mobile Golf Assistant: you click one button and you’ll see the greens, hazards, doglegs, whatever you want from a bird’s eye view. What makes our flyovers special is that the picture is not animated but real satellite view.

Every golfer should realize the importance of this feature for a successful round of golf. With flyovers, you can find out where to hit your drive, how to avoid traps and how to determine the best angles of approach. If you know all the nuances of a course, you are able to plan your hole-by-hole strategy and score your best.

One of the best Las Vegas golf courses is now listed in Mobitee!

Today we have great news for our users! So far we’ve received many requests asking for us to add, perhaps, one of the most famous Las Vegas golf courses to Mobitee and today we are glad to say we now have it listed; ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Spanish Trail Country Club!

Spanish Trail was founded in 1984 and is one of the oldest private, not-for-profit golf courses in Las Vegas. Although you may remember this golf club from its past “newsworthiness“, members here prefer to reaffirm the exclusivity in which “Details Make the Difference.”

Designed by famous golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr., a 27-hole layout comprises three nine-hole courses – the Canyon Course, the Lakes Course, and the Sunrise Course. These nines are weekly reconfigured into three different 18-hole courses in order to make sure that even the frequent player enjoys a diversity of play.

The Canyon Course gets its name from sloping fairways and greens and is the longest (3,576 yards) and perhaps most strenuous to play of the three golf courses. The last three holes, framed by desert landscaping with greens protected by water and deep bunkers, can become a test even for the most experienced golfers.

The second nine is aptly named the Lakes Course as water transverses the course on six holes with five of them guarding the green. Lakes’ second hole, a 601-yard challenge with a water-protected green near a magnificent waterfall, is one of the most delightful par-5 holes in Southern Nevada. The third hole, requiring a carry over two lakes, is not to be taken lightly by amateurs with a “go for it” mentality: playing safe may ultimately be the better option!

The Sunrise Course has large undulating greens with rolling fairways. The fifth hole was considered one of the hardest holes on the PGA Tour during the Las Vegas Invitational which Spanish Trail Country Club hosted in the late 1980’s.

Travel the World with Mobitee; Spain featured in updated golf course list

Today we want to present users (and future users) of Mobitee to a huge new list of golf courses we’ve just added our gps app.

As you may have noticed, we like to focus our golf blog each week on one unfamiliar and alluring vacation destination. That being said, inaugurated in the year 1967, Son Servera is one of approximately four hundred and seventy golf courses in Spain and is the second oldest golf course on the island of Mallorca, located in the Mediterranean Sea.

Son Servera Golf Course

Son Servera golf course has been attracting players from all around the world. Originally created as a nine-hole course, a brutal tempest took down several thousand pine trees and in 2012 this easily walkable “tester” (‘no buggies available”) became a welcome challenge for locals and visitors with well laid out fairways and fast greens.

Only minutes away from the resorts of Cala Bona and Cala Millor, Son Servera is surrounded by mountains and the sea and is set in a serene section of Costa de los Pinos.

Son Servera demands accuracy off the tee and bunkers abound but at the same time it is possible for players of all handicaps to have a fun round.

Mobitee Golf GPS app shares our plans and projects with you

The Mobitee Golf GPS team is working hard to make our smart phone app even more helpful and simply irreplaceable for you. In this post we’d like to share with you our ideas and projects on how we see Mobitee developing over time, acquiring new features which will help clearly distinguish it from other golf apps.

In the next update we are going to develop both shot and score statistics along with scorecard calculation, giving you the possibility to vary your games:

Golf Scorecard Calcuation

Best ball: Each player of the team plays his or her own golf ball throughout the round and on each hole the low score – or “best ball” – of the group serves as the team score.

Scramble: Each player tees off on each hole. The best of the tee shots is selected and all players play their second shots from that spot. The best second shot is then determined with all golfers playing their third shots from that spot and so on until the golf ball is in the hole.

Foursome: The first player tees off, the second player hits the second shot, the first player hits the third shot, and so on until the golf ball is holed. Players alternate hitting tee shots so that the same player doesn’t hit every drive. The team that gets the higher score wins the game.

Wagers: Sometimes golfers like to add some additional <ahem> incentive and competition during their Sunday afternoon rounds. Adding a bit of monetary wagering or simply playing for bragging rights can often bring out the best (or worst) game of any golfer!

Match play: A player, or team, earns a point for each hole in which they have bested their opponents as opposed to stroke play, in which the total number of strokes is counted over one or more rounds of 18 holes.

And we also have good news for beginners and professionals who want to make their game more perfect: in 2013 Mobitee will give you a possibility to upload swing videos, compare them with other swings and even use Swing Graphic Analyze tool!

This is surely not a full list of all innovations you will have within a short time so be sure to follow us to be “in the know”. Here’s how:

Mobitee adds Watson and Palmer golf courses in Florida

The last summer months are underway and that means golfers should use every opportunity to try new golf courses! Mobitee offers you such possibilities by adding new courses every week. We are glad to present you with a look at two of our seventy-one newly-added golf courses – Tesoro – Palmer and Tesoro – Watson in Port Saint Lucie, Florida, USA.

Resting on fourteen hundred acres, The Tesoro Club is the crowning jewel of Florida’s treasure coast. This eight year-old Tuscan-inspired member-only compound contains two signature-designed championship golf courses by golf legends Arnold Palmer and Tom Watson.

The Tesoro Club

The par-72 Arnold Palmer Signature course, “presents limited birdie opportunities but promises great rewards.” Large greens, elevation changes and mature, natural landscaping make for an enjoyable day of golf.

The second golf course to be created at Tesoro Club is the “more forgiving”, par-72 Tom Watson Signature course.

A true golfer enjoys the entire experience of the golf course and also the surrounding ambience from the abundance of lakes to the towering pines and mature oaks. The native scenery of Tesoro will be an endless inspiration for players who will enjoy a seamless and sensitive interplay between man and nature.

From bald eagles in flight to the mangrove-dotted marsh pools and tea olive trees lining the Country Club and community, I can understand why Tesoro is called the “treasure of South Florida.”

Here is a video which might help better relate the beauty of Tesoro:
