Reinvent the golfing experience

Founded in 1895, Golf Canada now represents 271,000 golfers and 1,400 member clubs. The organization’s mission is to increase participation and promote excellence in golf in Canada, while adapting to today’s challenges and issues.

Nearly 1.3 million Canadians play golf, and a large proportion of them are not members of Golf Canada or don't belong to a Golf Canada-affiliated club. Many golfers are opting to discover and try several golf clubs rather than pay an annual membership to a single club.

Project objectives

A new app to increase user satisfaction and memberships.


Redesign the experience for a more modern look and feel.


Make the app accessible to everyone, even to non-members, and showcase enough incentives to increase membership.

Focus on user experience

The complete redesign of the app was an opportunity for the design team to bring out the beauty of golf courses, with spectacular scenery, landscapes and views that players can experience.
 Also, since golf is a very technical sport, the app needed to display a lot of data and statistics based on the golfers’ performance without compromising UI and UX.
