More than 35,000 rounds of golf that were played on Troon International courses in 2018 were booked via its new tee time booking app, a service launched to revolutionise the way golfers secure their start times in late 2017.
The app currently provides for bookings at 19 Troon golf courses in the UAE, Oman, Bahrain, Egypt, Australia and Malaysia at the click of a button. These include world-famous names such as:
- Abu Dhabi Golf Club
- The Address Montgomerie, Dubai
- Cape Wickham, Australia
- The Els Club Dubai
- The Els Club Malaysia
As a result of its ease of access, the app recorded 35,892 bookings in 2018 from both members and non-members. Beside the obvious revenue benefits, more and more members are enjoying the convenience of booking via the app, reducing pressure on the telephone lines and speeding up the process for the user.
Paul Emmerson, a member of The Els Club Dubai, noted: “Downloading this app has made booking tee times at Troon venues so much easier. With a few easy taps I can view availability across a range of courses, secure and pay for my time and get on with my day.”
With the Australian and Egyptian locations having recently been introduced to the service, 2019 will see an even greater number of tee times being secured via the Troon International app. Following its successful introduction, further Troon International venues across the world will be added in the coming months. In addition, a further new enhancement will mean that users will soon be able to book their golf lesson through the app.
Mark Chapleski, President of Troon International, commenting on the success of the app, said: “We are happy to report on such a successful year for the Troon International app. A lot of hard workhas gone into its development and, with a busy year ahead of us, we expect to grow both the number of users and the rounds booked to exceed this 2018 record.”
He went on to say, “the app is yet another example of the tools we provide to our properties to help them drive their businesses forward. Sitting alongside our Troon Rewards loyalty scheme, the Troon Executive Card and Troon Advantage, our reciprocal programme, we offer a multitude of channels to encourage discerning golfers to choose Troon International properties ahead of the competition”
This app is available for download on all platforms and smart devices and is simply titled ‘Troon International’. Download the app today to reap the full benefits of Troon’s initiative to make tee time bookings simpler.
