The Lodge Of Four Seasons Courses And Old Kinderhook Join The Missouri Golf Trail And The GolfSwitch Network
September 13, 2012 (Phoenix, AZ) GolfSwitch continues to expand in Missouri with some of the most premier golf courses like The Cove and Ridge at The Lodge of Four Seasons and Old Kinderhook joining the GolfSwitch network.
In the Lake of the Ozarks, The Lodge of Four Season offers two outstanding 18-hole golf courses. The Cove, designed by legendary designer Robert Trent Jones Sr. and The Ridge designed by well know designer Ken Cavanaugh. The Lodge of Four Seasons is joining the Missouri Golf Trail. By joining the trail the property, along with others throughout the state, will come together to market themselves as a golf destination. With the online booking technology powered by GolfSwitch, players can now come to the Missouri Golf Trail website, book a tee times or a golf stay-and-play package, all online. The Cove and Ridge were so excited about the booking capabilities they decided to implement the GolfSwitch software solution at their facilities.
Matt Tausig, Director of Golf at The Lodge of Four Seasons: "The Lodge of Four Seasons is happy to partner with GolfSwitch and the Missouri Golf Trail. Many Internet Tee Time companies have approached us about using their services. GolfSwitch is the first company that understands this is a partnership and we need to do what is best for the golfer as well as the industry. The technology is cutting edge and easy for the golfer to use, while also giving our company full control of rate management and tee time availability. Combined with the marketing and exposure we receive from the Missouri Golf Trail, it made it an easy decision to choose GolfSwitch'.
Old Kinderhook, the signature Tom Weiskopf course, voted best in the state by the Missouri Golf Association, has joined the Missouri Golf Trail and the GolfSwitch network. Old Kinderhook sees the potential of providing golfers improved access to available tee times on their property. Adding the GolfSwitch booking engine to their website has provided them with new opportunities to market their tee times in a creative way, adding value added specials in season and more competitive rates during their shoulder seasons.
James Crowell, Director of Operations, Old Kinderhook: "Since we made the transition to GolfSwitch our volume is up 23%, our average rate on internet tee times is up 27%, and we couldn't be happier".
Allowing golfers to book from a computer is one piece of the puzzle; Old Kinderhook wanted to capture the mobile audience. Implementing the GolfSwitch Mobile application to their platform of services has done just that! With the mobile application Old Kinderhook can now offer players a new and innovative way to interact with their course. Players can now book tee times, keep score, use the GPS and range finder features, snap photos, browse pro tips for the track, and much more.
Scott Mayer, Vice President of Sales, GolfSwitch added: "Getting courses like The Cove and Ridge at The Lodge of Four Seasons and Old Kinderhook all joining the Missouri Golf Trail and the GolfSwitch network means a great deal to us. It shows we are the number one course centric software solution out there. Our goal is to always have the courses best interest in mind when building software and marketing them. We have proven to be successful at this from a scalable level of a single course to multiple courses like the Missouri Golf Trail".
The GolfSwitch network is expanding worldwide with more and more courses realizing that the future for their business is online, allowing golfers to book rounds, packages, golf passes and specials through a variety of online channels.
