Golf GameBook powered live scoring at the United States Collegiate Championship
The United States Collegiate Championship (USCC), hosted by Georgia Tech, annually brings 15 of the top college teams of the United States to The Golf Club of Georgia for a three-day, 54-hole tournament that has been called “the Masters of college golf.” Our client, Golf GameBook presented a new revolutionary live scoring system for the tournament this year.
Volunteers used the Golf GameBook app to enter scores for each player at the golf course. From the online leaderboards, everyone were able to follow the tournament hole-by-hole in real-time with a web browser. All the fans can now experience live scoring in college golf tournaments like never before.
Bruce Heppler, Head Coach, Georgia Tech Men’s Golf, commented the use of Gamebook: “I think the addition of Gamebook to our live scoring menu was one of the real upgrades for this year’s event. The graphics are tremendous and all those who used the application were very impressed.”
Exove is a long-time technology provider for Golf Gamebook, and we implemented a number of USCC tournament specific features for the GameBook server in a matter of few weeks. Despite the short notice and the sheer number of groundbreaking changes in the system, the tournament scoring went smoothly and the live leaderboards on both web and mobile were a blast.
Golf Gamebook runs on Drupal and the online clubhouse is powered by CodeIgniter, both implemented by Exove. More photos of the event can be found on Golf Gamebook’s Flickr photostream.
