GolfNow, a U.S.-based technology company specializing in golf-related products and services has unveiled its new international offices in Belfast.

The new £1.1 million office space on the river Lagan at City Quays, is staffed currently by 71 employees, a workforce that has more than doubled in size since GolfNow opened its first office in Belfast in 2014.

GolfNow, owned and operated by Golf Channel and part of the NBC Sports Group, offers more than 3.5 million registered golfers more ways to easily book tee times online and via mobile devices any time of day. It also provides technology, support and marketing services to more than 8,000 golf courses around the world, and is part of the suite of digital businesses managed by Golf Channel, which viewed in more than 500 million homes worldwide.

The Belfast business operates the brands GolfNow, BRSGolf and Teeofftimes.co.uk in the Ireland and UK markets.

“Expanding our presence here in Belfast allows us to strengthen our global golf portfolio and better serve both golfers and course operators,” said Mike McCarley, president, Golf, NBC Sports.

“We’re grateful for the support from Invest Northern Ireland for fostering an environment of creativity and economic opportunity, and making this an ideal home for industries seeking to tap into Belfast’s skilled and entrepreneurial workforce, particularly those with a high tech focus.”
