New Golf Club Safety & Compliance Platform Makes Managers Life Easier

12.36pm 3rd December 2021 - Innovation Centre

Golf club managers will sleep easier with the recent launch of Obbi Golf from a multi- award-winning NI tech firm. The unique software combines Compliance, Safety & Training in one integrated platform that works across every department in the club, including sub-contractors. Obbi Golf helps managers and committees to keep clubs safer by digitising all paperwork, including Safety, Training, Checks, Audits, and Accidents enabling individuals to fulfil their Compliance requirements across the club.

When thinking about dangerous sports, most people wouldn’t initially think of golf, but the consequences of not adhering to Health & Safety and Compliance can be a huge price to pay for many Clubs. This can be both monetary, reputationally or even legally which highlights the importance of compliant working practices.

Obbi Golf has already secured some of the top clubs across Ireland, recently showcasing their platform at the GCMA Conference ahead of their full UK & Ireland launch in early 2022.

Craig Cotterill, Business Partnerships Manager at the GCMA said, “We are delighted to have the Obbi Team join the GCMA family from 1st January 2022 and are extremely excited about the benefits this software will bring to our members in order to drive safety across the industry. Having seen the platform, we know this will be a great help to managers up and down the country.”

Managing Director, Gareth Macklin said, “The need for an integrated compliance, safety and training platform in Golf Clubs stood out as a gap in the market. For many clubs, implementing, managing and documenting Health & Safety legislation to demonstrate compliance is difficult. We are delighted at the overwhelmingly positive response we received at the GCMA conference and would especially like to thank the entire GCMA team for the work that went into this event.

Obbi Golf was recently recognised as one of the most innovative tech companies in the UK and won a significant fund from the national body which will see multiple new jobs created in both tech, sales and customer support in the coming months.
