Golf groups heading to Brocket Hall Golf Club can take their experience to another level after the historic venue agreed a new partnership with Golf Gamebook, the innovative free social live scoring platform that is at the heart of the fastest-growing golf community.

Under the terms of the agreement, golfers can enjoy full access to the award-winning golf scoring app all-year-round when they visit the prestigious Hertfordshire venue.

Offering exceptional value packages from just £65 per person, Brocket Hall – which features two 18-hole championship courses – is the ideal place for societies and groups to experience the new scoring platform on a golf day this winter, with the club also able to organise days for an additional fee.

Golf GameBook was founded by PGA professionals with the aim of enhancing the golfing experience for players across all levels of the game and making golf more relevant, fun and welcoming to the whole golf community using modern technology, while at the same time respecting the traditions of the game.

The product’s app and online services provide all golfers, golf clubs and golf tournaments with a live scoring platform as well as offering a ‘tournament manager’ feature and instant social media interaction designed specifically for golfers.

Free to download on Apple’s App Store, Samsung Apps, Google Play and BlackBerry World, Golf Gamebook’s app has already achieved considerable success with more than 600,000 worldwide downloads from 115 countries, with thousands of users recording their scores on a daily basis.

David Griffin, Brocket Hall club manager, said: “Technology is playing a bigger role than ever in golf and Gamebook’s live scoring and social media has revolutionised the game in many ways.

“We’re always interested at Brocket Hall in ways that we can improve our golfing product and the addition of Gamebook will add an extra element to our group golf days, helping to guarantee golfers a day to remember when they visit the club.”

Brocket Hall’s selection of eye-catching winter golf group packages are available from only £65 per person, with golf and a range of other attractive benefits included.

Golf days include tea, coffee and a bacon roll on arrival, 18 holes of golf on one of the club’s two courses – the Melbourne or Palmerston – and a two-course buffet dinner with a pint of beer of afterwards.

In addition, guests can enjoy unlimited use of the club’s renowned Palmerston Golf Academy, bag drop and club cleaning service, management of ‘Nearest the Pin’ and ‘Longest Drive’ competitions and scorecard marking.

Packages are based on groups of 12 people or more and are available to book from the start of November until March 31, 2014, while Brocket Hall has a range of other individual, group and corporate days on offer over the coming months.

Griffin added: “We have something that will appeal to everybody this winter. Not only do our packages offer fantastic value but they also give guests the chance  to experience our wide array of first-class facilities at a very affordable price.”

Situated within 543 acres of stunning 18th century parkland, Brocket Hall boasts some of the finest golf facilities in England, with its two 18-hole championship courses famously named after the prime ministers who once resided there, Lord Melbourne and Lord Palmerston.

In addition, golfers can hone their skills at the first-class PalmerstonGolfAcademy; indulge in five-star dining at its award-winning restaurant, Auberge du Lac; enjoy a more laid-back meal in Watershyppes Restaurant or an overnight stay in the recently-refurbished Melbourne Lodge.
