- Plantation Resort on Crystal River boasts an 18-hole golf course designed by architect Mark Mahannah in 1958, making it a classic golf destination in Florida.
- The American resort recently chose Golfmanager as its management software for all golf course operations. This makes it the second club in the United States to use the tool, with the first being Onward Mangilao Golf Club in Guam.
The architect Mark Mahannah designed and built the Florida resort in 1958. Its 18-hole, par 72 course has a traditional layout and challenges players of all levels over 6,496 yards.
Thus, Plantation Resort on Crystal River is now the first US-based Golf Club. to use this all-in-one, 100% cloud-based, multi-device management software, which has already been used by over 250 clubs in 15 countries. Similarly, Onward Mangilao Golf Club (Guam, USA) uses Golfmanager to manage its operations.
This is a significant milestone for Golfmanager in the American market, which has over 16,000 courses and is the most crucial in the golf industry.
Golfmanager’s integration with Oracle Hospitality played a crucial role
As a result of Golfmanager’s complete integration with Oracle Hospitality’s Opera Cloud, Plantation Resort on Crystal River chose Golfmanager as its technology partner.
Golfmanager is an official partner of Oracle and is one of the few golf club management software connected to Opera Cloud worldwide. This integration offers clubs a single multi-device tool to manage all operations related to the golf course and hotel, making it easier for clubs to allocate any client expenses at the club facilities (golf, activities, sports, etc.) to their hotel room. This partnership offers many other advantages as well.
Plantation Resort on Crystal River is currently undergoing a complete digital transformation of its operations in partnership with the Golfmanager team. This initiative involves automating various processes such as sending emails and payment confirmations to players, which will enable them to go directly to the tee without waiting in lines or paying at the Clubhouse. This will provide numerous benefits to the local player groups like Golf Societies.
This announcement comes after Golfmanager successfully exhibited at the 2024 PGA Show in Orlando (FL, USA) last week. The event marked Golfmanager’s first major effort to introduce its technology to key players in the golf industry.
“We are thrilled to share this exciting news. It marks a major achievement in the expansive American market, paving the way for our future progress”, said Daniel Sillari, co-founder and co-CEO.
