HD Golf and GolfNow.com offer advantages to indoor golf centers

ONTARIO, Canada -- Golf courses have long benefited from using GolfNow, the world's largest tee-time booking website. Now, thanks to HD Golf, indoor golf centers will have the same advantage.

"To drive more business, you need to make it as easy as possible for golfers to first find out about your center and then book a tee time," says Todd Richardson, CEO of HD Golf™. "By partnering with GolfNow, we are ensuring our golf center partners have the best tools to help them do this."

In another industry first, HD Golf™ and GolfNow developed a software interface for the HD Golf Center Management System. Golfers will now be able to seamlessly locate indoor golf centers and book tee times on GolfNow's website. Indoor golf centres will benefit from their large customer base. Last year alone, 6 Million rounds of golf were booked on GolfNow.com.

The HD Golf Center Management System is an integrated software tool that helps golf facilities manage their business, including booking tee times and managing leagues, tournaments, lessons and player stats. It's as easy to run as an ATM machine and reduces administrative costs.

"We are continuously enhancing our products and services, to help our customers grow their businesses," says Richardson. HD Golf™ also provides indoor golf centers with business planning advice, technical and marketing support, and access to its network of successful indoor golf facilities.
