Arlington, VA, October 16, 2002 - GolfGopher, LLC, a division of Software Performance Systems, Inc. (SPS), announces another addition to its growing customer list. The City of Needles, CA, has chosen GolfGopher to provide course management solutions. GolfGopher leads the industry in providing a total online golf course management solution designed to handle Point-of Sale, Inventory, Reservations, Membership, CRM and Marketing. This agreement highlights GolfGopher's increasing success in expanding the use and recognition of its product throughout North America. Needles Golf Course is the fourth course in California to sign with GolfGopher in the past six months.

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 a course and make Internet Tee Times, while offering a fully integrated suite of tools for golf course operations. These tools empower golf course personnel to communicate more effectively with their customers and leverage the power of the Internet for automating and enhancing golf shop operations.

"We had been shopping for a POS system for quite some time," stated JC Bacon, Head Professional at Needles Golf Course. "We chose GolfGopher because it fit our budget and gave us what we had to have for our operation, without paying for things we didn't need. Also, the fact that I can log in from anywhere in the world and monitor operations while away is important. The GolfGopher sales team was very helpful and kept in constant contact with us along the way."

"We are very happy that the City of Needles and JC decided to go with GolfGopher," adds Robert Bain, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing at GolfGopher. "Helping them automate their tee sheet, point-of-sale and customer marketing process will give them the tools they need to increase rounds and retail sales while also providing tighter financial controls."
