Back9 Acquires Top-Ranked Golf App Swing By Swing

That GPS app you use to navigate your favorite golf courses is now a part of the Back9Network family.

We are proud to announce that our acquisition of Swing by Swing Golf is complete. And with the top-ranked free golf GPS app (on both iOS and Android mobile platforms) comes an engaged audience of nearly 2 million users.

Downloaded more than 3 million times, the Swing by Swing app provides GPS mapping for 35,000-plus golf courses in 130 countries. It’s used for hundreds of thousands of rounds each month, allowing golfers to stay connected with golfing buddies and maintain personal stats.

“We are excited to add Swing by Swing and its top-notch management team to the Back9 family,” said Jamie Bosworth, Chairman, CEO, and Co-Founder of Back9Network. “Swing by Swing’s proven ability to create a large, loyal audience of active golfers is a tremendous fit for our network and grassroots marketing strategies. The combined companies will strive to build the top digital media offering in golf.”

Said Swing by Swing CEO Brandon Molina, “Swing by Swing is excited to finally be part of the Back9 family. Bringing Back9’s premium content to Swing by Swing’s millions of mobile users will create the most powerful digital media platform in golf.”

“This is a great match for both companies, and we plan to double Swing by Swing’s user base over the next year or two,” said Charles Cox, CFO & Head of Business Development at Back9Network. “It is a tremendous advantage for a young network to have a large, highly engaged online audience to whom we can introduce new, early content from our network, in addition to generating feedback, community interaction, and brand awareness. The 26 million active golfers in the U.S. are our primary demographic, and Swing by Swing’s GPS product is loved by active golfers.”
