The Golf Union of Iceland has selected GolfBox’s golf management platform to deliver a total solution for all Iceland’s golf clubs and the Golf Union.

The new platform, powered by GolfBox’s new central database, will also deliver the World Handicap System (WHS) to Icelandic golfers from 2020. The GolfBox management software will provide all Icelandic golf clubs with a complete golf administration platform to assist them with member engagement, including members administration, tee time booking, handicapping and tournament software.

“With this five-year agreement with GolfBox, the Golf Union of Iceland and Icelandic Golf Clubs and their members have ensured a fully proven and trusted golf management solution that embraces new technology and is fully ready for the implementation of WHS,” said Arnar Geirsson, IT-manager, Golf Union of Iceland. “We chose to partner with GolfBox because of its in-depth understanding of our requirements and its proven ability to deliver a centralised solution and platform that will also ensure the implementation of the new WHS in 2020.”

There are 15,000 registered golfers in Iceland and more than 65 golf courses, including Keilir
