Arizona, United States: Troon International has launched a new tee time booking app aimed at ensuring the company continues to set the benchmark for standards and service across its portfolio of venues.
The app will initially concentrate on offering opportunities to secure rounds at Troon International venues within the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Egypt and India, with plans to eventually encompass all 44 Troon International managed facilities across Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa.
The app, titled ‘Troon International’, will allow the golfer a quick and easy method for booking tee times and will help grow the reputation of Troon’s service quality and impact within key markets, offering a simplified process and an instant comparison across the different venues the company has to offer.
Mark Chapleski, President Troon International, said: “We are excited to release this new app, which will allow golfers in the UAE and beyond a simple and straightforward way to book their tee times with us at one of our outstanding golf courses. Considerable thought has gone into this and we are very happy with the end result.
“We know that apps are becoming increasingly popular as a method of booking tee times and this development demonstrates our commitment to offering our consumers a more modern and much simpler approach to booking their golf.”
In addition to the app, Troon International has also launched a new website – international.troonteetimes.com – which offers easy functionality and allows golfers to book multiple rounds at Troon International courses in one basket.
In order to plan their golfing itineraries, website users are able to filter Troon International managed golf courses by course name, location, nearby hotels and book play and stay packages.
Each course includes a full description on the site, providing detailed information on the layout and local attractions that surround it, along with an extensive list of general amenities that each one offers, from the delivery of corporate events to the quality of practice facilities available.
Further courses from within the Troon International portfolio will be added over time.
Troon is an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
