IT'S A LONG WAY TO BOOK A FAIRWAY

 

Golfers from around the globe can now book their tee-time at one of Merseyside's championships courses through a new online booking service.

Eight courses in the region have signed up to the project with free computers, ISDN lines and training providing through the Merseyside ADAPT 2000 project, a European-funded initiative to introduce SMEs to internet technology.

Coupled with the Golf Agent software, the clubs can now offer golfers from anywhere in the world the cream of Sefton's courses through the web site at www.golf-england.co.uk.

Golfers can book tee times around the clock and access up to date information from courses and facilities to the dress code. Information about competition booking and results and on line handicap updates are also available.

"The Sefton Coast is renowned worldwide for the excellent variety and standard of all the courses and the area is in demand. With this new service golfers can now investigate the course and decide where they want to play before they even arrive in the area."

The new system has been implemented at Royal Birkdale, Formby, Southport and Ainsdale, Hesketh, Formby Hall, West Lancs and Formby Ladies.
