Visual One Systems Corporation, a supplier of management software to the hospitality industry since 1977, has acquired the GolfPro company after years of being the exclusive distributor of GolfPro®’s software systems.

Many of the top golf courses in the world, including Pinehurst in North Carolina, Bandon Dunes in Oregon, Shingle Creek in Florida, Kapalua in Hawaii, and Doonbeg in Ireland, use the GolfPro® software.

"Though we’ve had a great relationship with the developers of GolfPro for many years, it is better that we are now in full control of its development path,” says Dave Burroughs, President of Visual One Systems.  “Greater things will come as far as integrating GolfPro with our property management and club management systems.

 “I think the time was right to merge our company with Visual One Systems,” said Mark Vincent, (former) CEO of GolfPro.  “Now, V1’s full programming resources will take GolfPro to a new and better level.”

 Though GolfPro® can operate as a stand-alone system, much of its power comes from the integration with Visual One’s property management system.  For example, a hotel reservationist can book a tee-time for a guest simultaneously with the sleeping room reservation.  If the guest cancels the room reservation, V1 PMS can either automatically cancel the tee-time or it can ask the User if they’d like to cancel the tee-time.  In addition, when a golf transaction is settled to a guest’s room, V1 PMS automatically knows which of the golf items (tee-time, cart rental, services, retail items, etc.) should be applied to the guest’s package and which should be posted outside of the package plan.  No human intervention is required.

 Future software developments include the ability for guests to build their golf, spa, dining room, and activity itineraries on the hotel’s web site.
