Well-Established & Reputable Online Golf Services Provider
- Excellent Reputation
- Very Loyal Customer Base
- Huge Growth Potential
- Low Overheads
- Equipment Included
This is a unique opportunity to acquire a long-established and reputable online golf services provider, which is offered on a fully relocatable basis.
The business has been operating successfully since 1986 and has built up a loyal, international customer base. Over the last 35 years, they have amassed over 22,000 members, with a current active database of around 1,400 members. Around 50% of these renew automatically via the website and 50% manually by credit or debit card in the office. There is huge scope to attract further members to the service.
In 2020, the business implemented the new Worldwide Handicap System, which is integrated into the website, currently via a bespoke copyright-protected software programme linked to the database. The new owner could opt to buy the current software for a small fee, which manages the database together with an annual technical support package. Alternatively, the new owner could choose to use their own software and acquire the customer database and domain name.
The company's unique system enables members to upload their score cards to their site, which automatically updates their handicap and score card history. They provide a worldwide recognised golf handicap and certificate, which is accepted at most of the top courses worldwide, including the Old Course at St. Andrews.
This business would be an ideal addition to any existing golfing enterprise, such as companies selling golf equipment or merchandise.
This business is offered on a fully relocatable basis, with customers based across the globe.
The customer database and domain name will be included in the sale. The new owner could also choose to purchase the current software and technical support for an additional fee, which the website is linked to.
At present, UK members can choose from Gold, Silver, and Bronze membership options, with most opting for the Gold membership, that includes public liability golf insurance. There is also a large potential for overseas golfers, who relish the opportunity to be linked to an established UK based organisation. These members would use an affiliated website, called www.internationalgolfersclub.com
This thriving business would be perfect for an owner-operator, who is looking to run a company in the golf industry. It would also work brilliantly as an addition to an existing golfing enterprise.
There is huge potential for growth with this business, as the company already offers a premium experience to golf members. Therefore, they could begin providing additional services, such as operating a golf retail business from the same platform.
Additionally, the business has an extremely desirable domain name, which attracts a high volume of searches. The company website is brilliant and easy to use, acting as an excellent sales window for the business. It would be highly beneficial if the new owner continued to grow the company's online presence, by creating some social media pages.
