D3 Golf Launches New Betting Golf App
Updated: Oct 16, 2020
New app is a part of the company strategy to build a digital platform to grow the game of golf and create more exciting ways to compete in-person and remotely.
SACRAMENTO CA, June 1, 2020 -- DollarDollarDollar (D3golf), a new player in the golf technology industry, announced the launch of its new game for iOS and Android mobile devices. This game technology is the key component of the company's initiative to build an advanced social golf experience for recreational and competitive golfers around the world.
The 1.0 version of the app is based on the popular golf side game of Nassau, or “Dollar Dollar Dollar”. Players compete and bet each other on their scores on the front 9 holes, back 9 holes, and for the entire round. The DollarDollarDollar App manages scores, handicaps, bets, and all the unique data that comes from more than 40,000 golf courses through a partnership with iGolf™ using its GPS Database Technology worldwide.
“When you add a side bet to your round, it raises the level of play and makes the experience more memorable,” says Tom Naramore, founder and CEO of DollarDollarDollar, Inc. “It’s so easy to bet your friends now because the app takes care of all the complicated calculations around different player indexes, course slope, and the money to be exchanged.”
Unlike other golf apps that simply keep score on your mobile device, the D3 app allows players invite others to what is legally considered a skills challenge, or a side game to their round, even if they are playing on a different course at a different time.
“Our most exciting innovation so far came when we developed the ‘Remote Play’ technology to connect two players on different courses. We made it possible to invite a friend to play against you – even if you cannot play together at the same time. You play at your course and they play at theirs. The app sets up the challenge and manages all the unique player and course data. It’s a great way to stay connected with your golf community – create challenges and side bets with friends – even when you can’t play at the same time. It’s staggering to think that we can grow golf in the way that online poker did for its industry. Now the vision of a worldwide connected golf competition is possible,” says Peter Meng, VP of Innovations.
“We created a team of experts in golf, gaming, social media, and mobile tech. The technology has to work, but it’s the experience that will make this a game-changer,” adds Scott Keith, head of Brand Marketing for D3. “Given the match play element of our game platform, we reached out to PGA Tour Pro Nick O’Hern, the only player that’s beaten Tiger Woods twice in the World Match Play Championship.”
