Marine Park Golf Course officials recently released a "Marine Park" mobile app that provides everything from up-to-date weather conditions, tee time booking, score keeping, and a GPS yardage system on the course. With the app - available in the Apple App Store or Android Market - players receive updates about Marine Park including course updates, event announcements, and promotions.
Recently, golfers with the Marine Park app received the following:
"Is your local course aerating? Marine Park's greens are fast and true as ever. Come down to MPGC and enjoy the day."
"Our new mobile golf app has provided us with a fantastic tool to engage our customers," said Richard McDonough, Director of Golf Operations at Marine Park. "The ease in which our customers can book a tee time from anywhere with their phone is invaluable. The on-course GPS works fantastic without the expense of a separate GPS device. Players can also use the interactive scorecard to track their round by round stats or keep score for an entire group."
