One of the Tampa-Area’s Premier Golfing Destinations Will Benefit from GolfNow’s Comprehensive Tee-Time Distribution Platform, Technology and Marketing Services
ORLANDO, Fla. (Sept. 28, 2020) – A long-term partnership announced today between GolfNow and Fox Hollow Golf Club – one of the premier golf courses in the state of Florida – provides the club with a full complement of GolfNow’s industry-leading technology and services, as well as a showcase for its public tee times inside the world’s largest online marketplace.
As one of the last courses designed and built by famed golf course architect Robert Trent Jones Sr. and frequently chosen as a qualifying course for various professional tournaments – including the Valspar Championship – the semi-private Fox Hollow Golf Club features rolling fairways, innovative bunkering, sparkling lakes, native trees and vegetation, and five sets of tee boxes ranging from 4,825 to 7,079 yards.
Through this first-time partnership, Fox Hollow now will benefit from the industry’s leading EZLinks-branded technology by GolfNow, including the EZSuite management system and EZTeePro electronic tee sheet. The partnership also includes all the elements comprising the GolfNow Platform, including custom website design and development, a white-label booking engine, and an introduction to the millions of golfers who regularly use GolfNow 24/7 to search for and book tee times, to name a few.
“We are very happy to partner with GolfNow, which will be a great help with increasing our visibility in the immediate golf community, as well among their world wide database,” said Dave Creighton, Owner & General Manager, Fox Hollow Golf Club. “Our goal is to continue to improve Fox Hollow Golf Club and make it a great golf destination. With the help of GolfNow and the tools they provide us with, we will improve our path to success.”
As part of its upgraded technology and keeping to state-mandated safety protocols, the club is utilizing GolfNow’s contactless, pre-paid technology, which allows golfers to book and pay for tee times remotely and in advance. The club also will benefit from GolfNow’s white-label Answers telephone service and enhanced exposure through GolfNow’s Premium Marketing Program.
Purchased in 2013 by National Hockey League 14-year veteran Dave Creighton Sr., and managed by PGA golf professional Dave Creighton Jr., Fox Hollow Golf Club has received critical acclaim, often included in lists of Florida’s best courses by outlets, such as GOLF Advisor and Golf Digest. In addition to its varied terrain, the SeaDwarf Paspalum greens offer some of the best putting surfaces in the state.
