GolfGopher was created with a vision to provide golf courses with a seamless management system combining leading technology and Web-enhanced applications. GolfGopher enables golfers to receive promotional information from courses and make Internet Tee Times, while offering a fully integrated suite of tools for golf course operations. These tools enable golf course personnel to communicate more effectively with their customers and leverage the power of the Internet for automating and enhancing golf shop operations. Courses using GolfGopher's TeeTimes.com system can open green fee distribution channels via hoteliers and travel packagers.
"After researching several systems, we found that GolfGopher offers many useful details needed for our facility," said Jerry Wampler, Head PGA Professional at Rock Harbor Golf Course. "From the ability to make tee time reservations on the Internet, through Web-based point-of-sale and end-of-day reports, GolfGopher was the best over the other products. I had the opportunity to see GolfGopher being used at another course that is very satisfied with its functionality and ease of use. This allowed me to confidently introduce GolfGopher to the decision makers at our course."
"We are thrilled to be working with Jerry and the rest of the staff at Rock Harbor," adds Gunnar Jurgensen, Regional Sales Manager at GolfGopher. "They have built an outstanding new course, and we are excited about being involved in helping them build their business. Our customer database and email blast system will help them market the course, and our system integration will help them save time so they can deliver a higher level of customer service."
