The TPC Network will be selling stay and play golf packages with the Inntopia Commerce platform, the golf industry’s leading booking engine for tee times and accommodations in a single reservation
Stowe, Vermont, April 10, 2018 – The TPC Network offers unique golf vacation opportunities at various TPC facilities across the country and it will be simplifying the purchase process with a responsive online booking engine powered by Inntopia. The partnership will launch with four TPC resort clubs including TPC Sawgrass, TPC Scottsdale, TPC San Antonio, and TPC Las Vegas.
Golfers dream of playing the courses they see on TV, and TPC Vacations can make those dreams a reality. They offer their guests the amenities, service and remarkable treatment designed for the world’s greatest players.
However, selling stay and play packages in the golf industry has traditionally been difficult to do effectively or efficiently. Tee times and hotel rooms are managed by separate complex software systems, and often different companies manage each part of a complete golf experience.
Inntopia’s Commerce platform will solve this problem by integrating with tee sheet software, property management software, and other systems to enable TPC Vacations to offer real-time tee times and rooms in one shopping cart, either online or over the phone.
“TPCs provide recreational golfers with the unique opportunity to test their skills on professional-level courses. When combined with first-class accommodations with our lodging partners, TPC Vacations offer a truly unparalleled golf experience,” said Jim Triola, Chief Operating Officer, PGA TOUR Golf Course Properties. “Inntopia is the only solution in the industry that enables TPC Vacations to offer our guests a complete booking experience that is on par with our world-renowned properties.”
Inntopia connects the software systems that manage lodging, skiing, golf, and other functions into one-stop shopping, automated marketing, and powerful business intelligence. Built to solve the complex challenges of destination resorts, Inntopia’s software and expert consulting have become the gold standard for destination hotels and resorts, DMOs, resellers, and other players in the travel industry. Headquartered in Stowe, Vermont, Inntopia sells three core products – Commerce (one shopping cart to sell lodging, activities, and transportation at the same time), Marketing Cloud (the CRM for travel), and Business Intelligence (powerful, predictive benchmarks for destinations and properties).
