World of Leading Golf launches new travel and concierge platform

1.55pm 21st October 2019 - Travel

World of Leading Golf has launched a new concierge service supporting the needs of both the inbound golfer as well as enriching outbound member travel.

The enhanced concierge platform offers state-of-the-art technology allowing golfers to create their own bespoke travel packages by using live search and booking technology.

Within the concierge platform, golfers will be able to search for any combination of tee times, flights, accommodation, car hire, transfers as well as insurance as they build their weekend, holiday or dream golf trip to any one of World of Leading Golf’s growing portfolio of venues.

Speaking on the announcement, Marc Potter, Chief Executive of World of Leading Golf, said: “This is an energising period for World of Leading Golf, as we focus solely on creating greater value for venues. Our new concierge platform is the first of numerous initiatives set for release. Consequently, we are able to provide a greater variety of tools to support club operations as well as generate superior club member value.”

Through the concierge platform World of Leading Golf venues can optimise travel packages in their own language and currency while taking advantage of live xml feeds and API connectivity to ensure access to the most current pricing and offers available.

In addition to leading technology, World of Leading Golf will provide venues their own white label subsite to encourage club members to take advantage of special offers and packages all under the auspices of their venue brand.

Among those clubs taking advantage of WLG’s new technology include Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club in South Africa, Ballybunion in Ireland and Laguna Lang Co in Vietnam. Christopher Bentley, CEO of South Africa’s preeminent club, commented: “With the introduction of WLG’s new concierge we are able to offer a level of service to our members previously unseen. Furthermore, we are well positioned to take advantage of their vast golfing network as well as feedback to help in our search for continuous improvement.”
