In just under two years of being in the marketplace, 18Birdies has become one of the top ranked golf apps worldwide with an average app rating of 4.6.

The Oakland, California business is also actively focused on growing its user base, which currently stands at 700,000 users. 60% of users are aged 18-44, with 40% aged 45+, which clearly reflects their relevance and appeal to a younger audience of golfers.

Tim Southwell, CEO of GolfPunk Media, commented: “We really like what 18Birdies are doing in the social space, and our partnership with them allows us to effortlessly share our content with their fast–growing audience. We see it as another way of growing the brand, and reaching a new, and different, audience.”

18Birdies has also recently received funding from Ernie Els, who commented: “Too often, players lose the joy of the game in the number on a scorecard. The 18Birdies team uses technology not only to improve game performance, but to inspire the mental approach to the game and ultimately help people enjoy their golf more. I applaud that.

“I’ve seen what their technology can do and really believe in the continued innovation they are bringing to the golf experience.”
