Your support here will enable us to get into production and into the market. The more we raise here the quicker we can get our product into your hands.

SEE Your Game 

  • GAME records every club used, swing made and yard covered in each round, without interrupting you or your playing partners.
  • GAME calculates the key statistics for every game that you play—scoring, number of putts, greens in regulation, driving accuracy, etc.

      Web Dashboard

SHARE Your Game

  • Connect with other golfers on the GAME network and follow their progress, so you know what's happening even when you're not on the course.

COMPARE Your Game

  • Play on a whole new level by competing against peers and pros with unique game challenges, and earn achievements by setting course records, beating personal bests and playing for Game Golf medals. 
  • Dynamic graphics and useful statistics help gauge your skill and show how you compare.

IMPROVE Your Game

  • Get tips from other GAME users about course conditions and other information to make sure you’re in the know before you hit the green.
  • GAME automatically archives and calculates your data to track your progress over time, allowing you to learn your strengths and weaknesses in detail.

Statistics

How does it work?

GAME is designed to be easy. Really easy. With the GAME product, you receive a GYG device and a set of club tags, one for each club in your bag. 

Setup is simple—pop a tag onto each of your clubs and you are ready to go. When you're ready to play, put the GYG device on your belt and hit the course. Whenever you take a shot you just "tag" the club against the GYG on your hip and go.

With that, your game is completely recorded. Every shot. Seamlessly.

The GYG device is loaded with a combination of the latest sensor technology—GPS, NFC, compass, accelerometer, and a gyrometer—to capture all the important data in your game. Data is then uploaded via low power wireless or USB to the GAME platform.

Seamless data capture opens up a world of possibilities

The exciting thing about GAME GOLF is that once it is made easy for you to capture your golf game, and we have done that, a world of possibilities is opened up for you to extend and enhance how you experience your game of golf.

  • Compare your game performance and all of your statistics to the pros, to other players all over the world, to players at your home course and to players anywhere like you. 
  • GAME GOLF knows what club you used, how far you hit each shot with that club and where you hit it. You can learn how far you really hit your 3 wood. How accurate you are with each club and what club you should really be hitting for any shot on the course. 

All of this and much, much more is possible with GAME GOLF.

Why support us?

GAME is the beginning of a movement—one that will completely change the golf experience for everyone. Plus, with your support, you will be one of the very first to get your hands on the GAME product.

Working with Yves Behar and his award-winning design firm fuseproject, we have made a lot of progress. Our final device prototypes have been tested hundreds of times by our team and pros Lee Westwood and Graeme McDowell. We are ready to start manufacturing the product and are in development for our software platform.

We want to incorporate product feedback from golfers and demonstrate the demand for the product that we believe is there. Our campaign on Indiegogo will allow us to take our final step, going from prototype to production and getting into the market, and your hands, faster.

We want you to be part of our process of making GAME GOLF a reality.

Our Team

GAME GOLF was started in Galway, Ireland by John McGuire and a small team of engineers. They had an idea and John moved to San Francisco two years ago to realize that idea. We now have our team in Galway and our team in San Francisco.

We are a technology team with a great idea, a love of sport (particularly golf) and a passion for developing new products. As a team we have many years of experience developing software and hardware.

In developing GAME GOLF, we have worked closely with one of the world's top designers in Yves Behar and his team at fuseproject. We are bringing a completely new and different design perspective to the golf world.
