GolfNow, the leading online tee time booking and golf course technology and services platform, announced that it has partnered with Yelp, the company that connects consumers with great local businesses. The partnership will elevate the exposure of existing GolfNow tee time distribution platforms by making them available throughout Yelp’s digital and online community.
“By expanding Yelp Platform to new categories and partners, we’re delivering on our goal to make it as easy as possible for consumers to both find and book experiences and services directly through Yelp,” said Mike Ghaffary, VP Business and Corporate Development at Yelp. "Partnering with GolfNow is a win for all of the golfers who are coming to Yelp every month to find the best local golf courses.”
“Yelp has established itself as a leading resource for consumer information and reviews on the local business marketplace,” said Will McIntosh, senior vice president of business and strategy, GolfNow New Media Group. “This partnership will provide GolfNow with broader exposure, and ultimately make it easier for golfers to book tee times online at their favorite courses.”
Golfers seeking to book a tee time online will now be able to do so through Yelp, at more than 6,000 golf courses around the world on GolfNow’s tee time distribution platform. Yelp users can choose to book a round in real-time by searching for GolfNow listings on Yelp and selecting “Book Now”. With Yelp’s 135 million average unique monthly visitors as of Q4 2014, this new partnership will provide golfers with more ways to search for tee times in their area, and conveniently book online rounds in real-time.
