GolfN is the first golf app to use the power of tokenization and digital collectibles to empower its members to earn rewards for playing and engaging with a physical sport. 

GolfN, Inc., today announced the closure of its $1.3 million Pre-Seed funding round. The round saw participation by prominent blockchain investors, including leading personalities and projects in the Solana ecosystem – CitizenX, Fourth Revolution Capital (@DeFi_Dad), Nom (@TheOnlyNom), and Joe McCann (Asymmetric Financial) – among others. First off the tee in building a gamified Play-to-earn (P2E) mechanism for a physical sport, GolfN will offer a premium digital caddie app to rival current market incumbents and pair it with Web3 rewards.

“Despite its high cost of play, golf has hooked nearly 67 million people globally,” commented Jared Phillips, GolfN’s CEO and Co-Founder, “Currently, the more golfers play, the more they pay out. The free-to-use GolfN App will not only help users play better, but the more they play and engage, the more they will earn to play more and better golf.”
