New GolfRz Rewards mobile app now available at Google Play Store

CLIVE, Iowa -- A round of golf has become more rewarding for android smartphone users thanks to GolfRz, an innovative mobile app for golfers who will be able to earn credits towards valuable vacation packages, cruises, gift cards, a dozen golf balls and free rounds as they accrue points from frequent play at courses in the U.S. and share information via social media. GolfRz launched in January as a free download that initially only was available from the iOS App Store.

"We are pleased that the GolfRz app has expanded its universe to golfers with android technology," said Dustin Hemesath, GolfRz creator and founder of parent company Golf Challenges LLC. "Today, consumers are accustomed to earning points or rewards for travel, shopping, dining out and all manner of loyalty programs. We decided that golfers should be able to take advantage of playing frequent rounds at their home or different courses and by doing so earn redeemable credits. GolfRz puts a unique twist on most loyalty programs as it's designed to reward users not for actual dollars spent on playing but for the activities golfers do while they're on the course. Our goal is to drive more traffic to golf courses by providing a fun, social and rewarding platform for golfers to share their golf experiences."

Tee it up at five, 10 or 25 different courses and point totals quickly increase. Credits also accrue for simply checking in at a course, inviting friends to join GolfRz, and sharing one of the many GolfRz deals on social media and more. "As GolfRz attracts users online, we will add more rewards and attractive deals, including VIP passes to golf tournaments and events," confirms Hemesath, who expects GolfRz to quickly become a very popular golf app.
