The successful Danish software company GolfBox A/S has signed new 3-year agreements with yet another European Golf Association. By signing the agreement with the Estonian Golf Association GolfBox A/S once again enhances its existing and extensive client list of European Golf Unions / Federations / Association, writes Frank Undall.

As a total “turn key solution” the new agreement with the Estonian Golf Association is unique. Both the Association and the individual clubs will use the software solution from GolfBox.

“We are extremely satisfied with this new agreement. We are especially satisfied as our software services are able to provide the Estonian Golf Association with a complete solution – in fact a total turn key installation”, says Christian Faergemann, CEO of GolfBox.

Faergemann adds that the agreement inEstoniaalready have created several interesting dialogs with other similar projects. He therefore expects the growth of GolfBox to escalate further and even more rapid in this particular area.

The installation, which has already been implemented inEstonia, includes all goodies from a central database of members for the Association and member system, EGA handicap solution, tournament module, to a tee time booking module for the individual golf clubs. The Estonian Golf Association joins GolfBox as a partner for this solution, and they play a key part in the individual setup.

The new agreement happens at a time where GolfBox A/S are closing their books for yet another record year.
