Golf is one of the most popular pursuits for those who need a break from the boardroom. The most prestigious course near our base in East Yorkshire is Hessle Golf Course – and Digitalquill are proud to be the sponsors of the tenth hole, we are looking forward to a long term sponsorship at our local course, we may even look at sponsoring other events that are held there throughout the year. We were particularly attracted to sponsor Hessle Golf club because of their use of mobile technology.
History of Hessle Golf Club
Hessle Golf Club was originally founded in 1898 and a six-hole course occupied part of an old quarry. In 1912 the golf course was moved to land adjacent to Hesslewood Hall and expanded to nine holes. In 1929 the course expanded to 18 holes – before part of the course was co-opted for the War effort. The building of the Humber Bridge meant that a new home had to be found in the early 1970s and the club moved to Raywell, where it remains to this day.
The Current Course
The current 18 hole, par 72 course offers an enjoyable challenge to golfers of all ages, with its moderately flat nature proving easy to walk. Practice facilities include a six-bay driving range, a short game area and practice greens for both chipping and putting. The full course measures 6,608 yards, with all of the greens meeting USGA Standard. This allows the course to be played in all weathers.
Golf and Technology: Hand In Hand
We felt we were the perfect fit with Hessle Golf course because of their refreshingly modern approach to the use of technology: For example the course has a mobile app with GPS for Android or iPhone. The app offer a course flyover; can pinpoint your location on the course; and can even help you to calculate your shot distances.
