De Vere has enhanced its partnership with Golf GameBook, the mobile scoring system and interactive golfing community, by introducing a new series of competitions for users across all De Vere Golf resorts. Golfers can compete for a host of exciting prizes and the opportunity to be entered into a selection of prize draws during each round.

Open to all golfers across the UK, anyone who plays during the designated competition period up to the 7th September using a Golf GameBook device or app will be competing for the weekly lowest nett score to be in with a chance of winning a 1 night stay and 2 rounds of golf for two people at any of the leading properties in the De Vere Hotels & Resorts portfolio.

Alongside this, all competitors from across the properties during the period will be entered into a grand prize draw to win 2 night’s accommodation (dinner, bed and breakfast) and 3 rounds of golf for two people at any De Vere Golf resort.

De Vere members will also be able to take part in their own their own exciting eclectic competition, where the leading nine players will win their place at a golf day with European Tour professional and Golf GameBook Ambassador, MikkoIlonen. Members can enter by playing a minimum of four rounds in Saturday or Sunday De Vere Club competitions before the 31st October.

These initiatives are being fully supported by Golf GameBook across the eight De Vere Golf resorts throughout the UK, with the introduction of smartphone devices to utilise out on the course, as well as real-time course leaderboards for each course on the resort’s website.

“We have been working hard with Golf GameBook to discover new interactive ways in which we can develop our partnership, and these competitions provide great incentives for members and visitors alike to come and experience the golfing excellence on offer at De Vere Hotels & Resorts,” commented Keith Pickard, De Vere Group Director of Golf.

“Golf GameBook is one of the leading innovators in the game of golf, and it links closely with our continual quest to improve golfing experiences across our resorts. Adding these initiatives to our fully interactive website and new direct tee time booking pages,, highlights how we are continuing to develop our digital platforms for golfers.”
