Marketing reach of the official tee time reservation site of the PGA Tour
to drive traffic to course and association websites
SACRAMENTO – February 8, 2017 – The California Golf Course Owners Association (CGCOA) and NGCOA Arizona (National Golf Course Owners Association – Arizona) today announced a partnership with TeeOff.com by PGA TOUR and parent company EZLinks Golf (EZLinks), a PGA TOUR affiliated company and a leading producer of golf management technology. The Associations will leverage EZLinks Golf booking engines to power their regional sites, Golf4Arizona.com and Golf4California.com, and will receive marketing support from TeeOff.com by PGA TOUR.
Executive Director of the California Golf Course Owners Association Marc Connerly cited EZLinks’ partner-focused approach including EZLinks’ practice of providing golfer data to course partners and pay-for-performance commission model, as a key reason for partnering with EZLinks Golf. “This effort was motivated 100% by member requests and a desire to help our members move more tee times through our local sites,” said Connerly.
Courses who choose to list their available tee times on TeeOff.com will benefit from TeeOff.com’s presence on PGATOUR.com, exposure at PGA TOUR Tournaments, and TV commercials many of which air during tournament coverage.
TeeOff.com by PGA TOUR uses a commission-based model so courses only pay when rounds are sold. A similar commission arrangement for tee times sold on Golf4Arizona.com and Golf4California.com, slated to launch Spring 2017, will provide a revenue stream for the associations and will be used to support marketing efforts for these regional sites.
“TeeOff.com and EZLinks are focused on being golf’s most valued partner,” remarked Gary Cohen, chief executive officer, EZLinks. “Whether rounds are booked on TeeOff.com by PGA TOUR or through these associations’ sites, we are focused on making it as easy as possible for golfers to find their next round.”
