February Winners - http://eepurl.com/PZ_pf
Last month, John Vannoy topped both the Points and Status Cash leaderboard, winning four rounds of golf, with carts, to Wild Horse Golf Club in Gothenburg, Nebraska, and a dozen GolfStatus logo golf balls. This month, the top 20 points leaders at the end of the month will have a chance to win four free rounds, with carts, to Bayside Golf Course in Ogallala, Nebraska. Each of the top players will get entries in a lottery: the top player will get 20 entries, the second place player will get 19, the third 18, and so on. We will randomly draw the winner during the first week of August. The higher you finish on the leaderboard, the greater your chance of winning.
As you might have guessed, we are big fans of Western Nebraska golf and if you play Bayside you’ll understand why. Bayside was designed by Dan Axland and Dave Proctor, who assisted Bill Core and Ben Crenshaw in building Sand Hills. While Bayside’s front nine is more of a traditional links-style layout, the back nine is rugged and raw. This landscape is truly breathtaking, providing a glimpse back to what Western Nebraska looked like 150 years ago. Indeed, nestled on land just south of the Oregon Trail, visitors who stroll outside the course’s boundary have a decent chance of stumbling upon a Sioux arrowhead or other Native American artifact.
We hope this month’s winner, and three lucky friends, will enjoy this course as much as we do. Good luck!
As always, keep a look out for rewards for your golf achievements each time you play.

GolfStatus Founder Ryan Cooper took the top spot on May’s cash and points leaderboard. So we randomly chose two of our other top performers in May to receive rewards. The lucky winners were Ron Fricke and Michael Huss. Each will receive a dozen Bridgestone golf balls. Congratulations!
Dear GolfStatus Users,
We are excited to announce the release of a new version of our iOS mobile application and the launch of our first Android application. You can download the new apps from the App Store and from Google Play.
Along with these mobile applications, we have made some significant improvements to the GolfStatus platform. The first thing you’ll notice is that we enhanced the way friendships work. You can now send friend requests and approve, or reject, friend requests that you receive.
Inviting new golf friends also just got easier. When you are selecting players to keep score for, you can now invite a new friend to become a GolfStatus member. Simply enter their email address and name and they can play a “guest” round without having to sign up on the tee box.
Other improvements include GHIN handicap compatibility, iPhone 5 compatibility, various bug fixes, improvements to overall stability, and incorporation of new rewards.
Keep a look out for new rewards every time you play.
Founder & CEO
