Red Mat Media custom app for Bent Tree Golf Club in Jackson, Tennessee

MILFORD, Conn. -- Red Mat Media, makers of the leading mobile golf application, Who's Your Caddy, are pleased to announce that Bent Tree Golf Club in Jackson TN, has signed on for customized Mobile Golf App Services. Bent Tree Country Club is part of Pope Golf, an organization that selected Red Mat Media/Who's Your Caddy for private label services for a number of its courses. Pope Golf provides design and management services to multiple courses in Florida, South Carolina and Tennessee.

Red Mat Media offers the number one customized private label app services for golf courses in the US, available on iTunes and Android. These Private Label App Services provide the course with its own customized app complete with its branding and logos, course information, and tips from the course pro. The course also enjoys the benefits of the Red Mat Media promotional machine-enhancing visibility to and offering extra value for course members/golfers. The set-up is simple and there are no upfront costs. Courses are able to increase rounds and more rounds, means more revenue.

"The ability for our course staff to communicate real-time, on and off the course with our golfers via the Notifications Feature in the app is extremely beneficial. Our courses can now more easily and readily promote events, special offers and tournaments. And, our pros will definitely increase face-to-face communication with their golfers," says Ryan Henderson of Pope Golf.

"With our custom app services, the course can increase sales in the pro shop, get more attendance at events and tournaments, and reach out to their golfers both on and off the course. This gives them a huge advantage - reaching their golfers where they know the golfer can take action. Having the ability to be right there in the palm of their hand is a huge benefit, knowing that no one leaves home without their phone," says Laura Guthrie, Executive Director and Partner.

Recently Deer Island in Florida, SunRiver in Utah, and Upper Montclair Country Club in New Jersey launched their custom mobile golf app, powered by Who's Your Caddy. "We are pleased to adopt the Who's Your Caddy customized mobile golf app for Upper Montclair members. The features of the app will be enjoyed by our golfers and enhance their experience on the course. We look forward to much success with this new customized technology," says Kara Bosi, Membership Director, Upper Montclair Country Club.

San Diego Golf, headquartered in San Diego, CA, also recently launched their private-label golf app. Powered by Who's Your Caddy, the app offers free golf GPS service for San Diego's Top 20 golf courses and also includes key features such as scorecards, statistics, caddy tips, video libraries and banner displays. Golfers can even book their tee-times right through the app.

Rick MacDonald, Sales and Marketing Manager at San Diego Golf, says, "My team was looking for a cost-efficient way to supplement our website in order to extend our online presence. We looked at a lot of options out there and we all agreed that Who's Your Caddy's private-label services offer the best turn-key solutions for those in the industry needing to reach golfers and communicate with them, both on and off the course."
