DENVER, July 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Internet start-up, Golfsquid.com™, announced today that it has become a preferred Online Tournament Services Partner of Golfsmith, the largest specialty golf retailer in the world. For charity, corporate and other golf events in the United States, Golfsquid.com™, introduces an entirely new and powerful way to automate website creation, event app creation, online registration, hole sponsorship sales, volunteer management, communication and revenue reporting for all types of golf events.
Under the arrangement, Golfsmith will feature Golfsquid.com™ to all of its tournament host customers while enabling all tournament goers to "gear up" before their events. Every golfer who registers for an event through Golfsquid.com™ will receive an exclusive discount offer valid at Golfsmith stores or online at golfsmith.com. To further introduce the program, Golfsquid President and CEO, Gary Robinson says, "The company will 'up the ante' with a $100 Golfsmith gift card for first-time tournament hosts."
Golfsquid can save tournament hosts at least 30-40 hours of work while making the registration process more efficient for golfers. The site charges hosts a flat $2.99 per registered golfer for everything. Together, Golfsmith and Golfsquid can leverage each other's tournament hosts and participant databases to simplify tournament planning and promote exclusive savings. "This is the first stage of what we hope will be a strong and long-lasting partnership," says Drew Mitchell, Director of Field Marketing at Golfsmith.
Golfsquid.com™ is the latest addition to Eventsquid LLC, a Denver-based network of websites aimed at consolidating industry-based events. Eventsquid™ creator and CEO, Michael Kranitz, says, "The software powering Golfsquid.com™ has evolved over the course of three years with massive inputs from several industries. The result is a battle-tested system that allows users of nearly any skill level to easily manage anything from simple tournaments to very complex events, including private invitationals." "Hosting a successful golf tournament takes a tremendous amount of thankless work. And you get no Mulligans," says Golf Channel personality and PGA pro, David Duval. "Especially with Golfsmith as their partner, I can't think of any reason why a tournament host would not take a shot at Golfsquid.com."
Golfsquid.com is headquartered in Denver, Colorado.
