Espiche Golf first bookable golf club using Concept Golf
Leadingcourses.com is rapidly connecting to more and more tee-sheet providers throughout Europe. We are proud to announce that golf clubs using tee time management software from Concept Golf are now able to tap into the Leadingcourses.com community. Many Portuguese golf clubs use Concept and the first to open up their tee time inventory on Leadingcourses.com is Espiche Golf.

Concept Golf integration live

After connecting to iMastergolf (Spain), Teetime.cz (Czech Republic) and Albatros Solutions (France, Germany, Belgium) we are now proud to announce a connection with Concept Golf. As a result of this integration, more than 100 golf courses – mainly located in Portugal – will be bookable online via Leadingcourses.com. Golf clubs interested in connecting will need to grant Leadingcourses.com access so that we are able to tap into their system to check availability in real-time.

Managing Director Malcolm Rennie from Concept Golf about the integration: “From Concept’s perspective, the latest integration with Leadingcourses.com demonstrates our commitment to positioning Concept as an open distribution platform for our customers. The benefits of an open platform to our global client-base is that online travel agencies and 3rd party tee time resellers can book real-time, easily, efficiently and cost-effectively. Leadingcourses.com has strong relationships with many of our valued golf properties and we look forward to enabling these courses to connect to them and to ultimately see more high-value golfers playing these courses.

Espiche Golf first bookable golf club live using Concept Golf

Espiche Golf is an eco-resort close to Lagos which opened its doors in 2012 and has received high reviews ever since. It is the first Portuguese golf club that is bookable through our new connection to Concept Golf.

Jeroen Korving, Managing Director of Leadingcourses: “We are trying to help the golf industry – both golf clubs and golfers – by creating a platform where golfers and golf clubs can find each other and arrange everything online. It’s great to be connected to Concept now as it opens up the Portuguese golf market. More than 50 courses in Portugal use Concept. We are also proud to have Espiche Golf as our first connected golf club. It means a lot to us. This first connection – and the ones that will follow – will help us to improve our service.” 

General Manager Frederico Champalimaud from Espiche Golf is excited to welcome Leadingcourses users to his course: ‘Catering to the rapidly growing online golf community is extremely important to Espiche Golf this year. Our live booking connection with Leadingcourses is something we are very excited about. Espiche Golf is an eco-friendly golf course located in west Algarve and golfers using Leadingcourses.com are now just one click away.’ 
Many other golf clubs like Vale do Lobo, Boavista Golf Resort, Quinta do Lago and La Cala Resort in Spain will be connected in the next weeks.
