2020 was undoubtedly a year like no other and, while the urge to play golf intensified for every Hole19 golfer, our desire to improve the app for you gave us plenty of motivation to continue doing our job behind the scenes.
In April, we introduced the beta version of Hole19-LIVE - our live scoring feature - and months later, we released the finalised version for the mobile app. Our devs also worked tirelessly to deliver our Android users some Premium features previously available to iOS only, such as Club Recommendation and Stats Filtering.
You can now compete with your friends by creating live leaderboards within the Hole19 app. Simply set the date, choose the venue, the tees, the scoring mode, and voilà!
Numbers for 2020
Our 'Big Numbers' are in for 2020 and they demonstrate a 43% year-on-year increase in respect of the numbers of rounds played this year (4.5M in 2019) - amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.
Most Played Golf Courses
In terms of the most played golf courses during 2020, both Portugal and Netherlands have two entrants in our top five.
Golf Jamor, situated in Oeiras just a 15 min drive from Lisbon centre (the place we call home), came out on top with 5,046 rounds played during the past 5 months.
None of this would be possible without our community of golfers, so we want to say a BIG THANK YOU for your support over the past 12 months.
