Malaysia-headquartered golfing startup Deemples, popularly known as “the Uber for golfers” is a golf app that allows users to find a golf partner to play with whenever and wherever, has recently closed its latest funding round.
Launched in 2017 with the aim of helping people find golf buddies and enabling them to organise games at preferred locations and time slots, Deemples has become a popular service among the golfing community, including golfers, golf courses and even golf tournament organisers.
In the past two years, the startup has built a strong and active community, with over 3,000 monthly users with the mobile app being downloaded more than 18,000 times. Since 2017, over 10,000 rounds of golf have been played through the Deemples app with double that amount
Boosting Growth in the Golfing Industry
With the slowing growth of the sport of golf, Deemples provides an ideal platform for the industry to reverse the slowdown and help rebuild the golfing community. This free-to-use mobile app makes golf more accessible and helps bring together those looking for a game regardless of the level of expertise.
The founder’s ultimate goal is for the startup to become the defence against the decline of the golf industry. Deemples uses technology to bring efficiency and simplicity to the game of golf, thus removing the exclusivity around the sport. Users now have easy access to a large and active golfing community and can join games or flights as they are known in the golfing community.
Besides joining games, users can even start creating golf rounds with their preferred playing date, golf course, tee time, number of players, and green fee.
