For many reasons 2019 has been a great year for golf, and it's been another huge 12 months for us too, with Hole19ers around the world contributing to one of our busiest and best years to date.
In terms of app feature additions, our faithful developers have been beavering away more than ever this past year with their efforts leading to the introduction of many new Hole19 features.
This year our beloved Hole19 Premium was rebranded as Hole19 Premium Pro with Premium Lite packages also available via Premium Lite for Wearables and Premium Lite Birdie (iOS). The change has been hugely successful in helping our Hole19ers choose the right package for their own golf game.
Back in May we helped smartwatch enthusiasts further unlock the power of Hole19 on their wrist through the release of 3 new features initially exclusive to the market-leading Casio Pro Trek WSD-F30. Authentication, Scoring and Wearable Maps all help our golfers enjoy a round of golf without needing to reach for their phone.
June's release of Stats Filtering (iOS) helps gain a greater understanding of golf rounds and performance level over different periods of time, or even at a particular golf course, which is perfect for course management and season comparison!
This year we also introduced a great Sharing feature which allows every Hole19er to post their round on social channels. Now you can share your rounds on your social media right after you finish, or later from the performance section of the app. You will have two types of images to choose from—one that will show a nice overlay with your name, location and score on the picture you take (of the golf course or yourself - iOS & Android), and another one with the full scorecard (iOS only).
STOP taking bland screenshots or photos of your physical scorecard and START bragging about that triumphant round 💪
Getting back to the standout stats for the past year, here are some of our highlights:
Our 'Big Numbers' are in for 2019 and they demonstrate a 45% year-on-year increase in respect of the numbers of rounds played this year - a great effort by each and every one of our golfers.
