GreeniGolfSwitch prGolfSwitch continues to expand its network of golf tee time partners with the latest activation of live real time tee time bookings on the award winning GREENi App out of Finland.

GREENi’s pace-of-play management system which gets executed through their App has already caught the attention of many clubs and organisations worldwide. The GREENi App allows courses to get a better grip on the pace of play which results in more efficient course utilisation. Better course utilisation results in getting more people to play. This is where GolfSwitch and GREENi provide the ideal solution. The suite of tools GolfSwitch provides to golf courses allows them to market, on the fly, to golfers around them with an immediate and online or mobile call to action … book a round of golf !

GREENi incorporated GolfSwitch’s API to be able to add live tee times to the app that is already in use with thousands of golfers worldwide. These golfers will now have the option to start by booking their round through the App and then use the App while playing. GREENi’s App tracks everything about your golf !

Jo Maes, Managing Director GolfSwitch International Ltd, said: “With GolfSwitch we are very much about balancing the demands of both the course and the golfer with regards to availability and rate. This is our ethos and that’s why we are providing both with the best booking experience at the best rates available for that particular time and day. We are also about expanding the network and providing, again both golf clubs and golfers, the widest marketing reach available. We are also a technology company and when GREENi approached us to provide their customers with live and real time tee time bookings, we immediately saw a great fit. The integration has been seamless and all GREENi’s customers can now book on around 2,500 courses worldwide.”

Mika Berg, Managing Director Viherio Technologies, said: “Providing our customers with the best interactive golf experience available is what we are all about. It goes without saying that real time tee time bookings, both online as mobile, have become the norm and clubs not providing this will be left behind. Integrating the GolfSwitch technology in the GREENi App allows us to provide a complete experience to our clients, from booking the round to playing, scoring and sharing their experience. We went with GolfSwitch as we like what they represent. They are, like us, balancing the needs and demands of both the course and the golfers.”

The GREENi App is available for download both for iPhone and Android. The GREENi App is the easiest golf app available thus suitable for all golfers. On course it only has one simple screen view where golfers get all the information they need – distance to pin, easy scoring and course guide. Courses that use GolfSwitch tools will automatically be included and visible on the GREENi tee time pages.

Golfers will now also have the option to book their tee times online via the GREENi App.
