Jo Maes, Managing Director GolfSwitch International Ltd comments: “Since the acquisition of GolfSwitch by OpenTee and becoming part of Club Holdings, we have worked tirelessly on getting the different distribution platforms on the same technology base. At IGTM we will be launching the OpenTee booking engine plus we’re extremely pleased that we can showcase the GolfShot app with a tee time booking option included. There are thousands of recreational players using GolfShot everyday and pushing inventory on GolfSwitch connected courses will be a huge asset to our customers.”

IGTM is the world’s largest gathering and premier event for the b2b golf travel industry and will be held at the world renowned Villa Erba in Cernobbio on the banks of Lake Como. The event allows companies working in the golf travel industry to meet up and discuss opportunities to attract more golfers in an easier and more straightforward way. This is where GolfSwitch comes in whereby courses can connect to both the consumer as the travel trade in a live and real time way.

GolfSwitch will be present in full force with recently appointed Regional Sales Managers Benjamin Oosterveer and Alessandro d’Introno together with Sales & Marketing Manager Denise Gallagher all attending and being joined by John Fechter, CEO OpenTee Holdings from the USA. All of them will be able to explain how courses can benefit from the world’s largest database of active golfers which currently stands at 6.4 million and growing.

Jo Maes continues: “IGTM is always a big opportunity to meet existing and potential customers and show them the advantages of connecting to a network as extensive as GolfSwitch’s. This year our focus will be to give something back to our customers and invite them for a casual get together and address any questions, requirements or requests they might have. We are all looking forward to meeting up with our customers, both new and existing. This year’s motto is ‘Relax, your tee time is in good hands’ so come down and see us for some refreshments at L524”

Recently, GolfSwitch completed integration with several travel companies like 1Golf, GolfBreaks and YourGolfTravel which shows the benefits of having real time tee time inventory availability within the travel industry.

OpenTee, an innovative new tee time reservation system that puts the golf course back in charge of its rates and customers, is set to launch in September of 2014 and will be available on both desktop and mobile.  Golf course owners and operators who partner with OpenTee benefit from the world’s largest digital database of active golfers (6.4 million and growing).
