Kyle Klouda – COO & Eric Crawford – CEO
We’d like to take a little time to tell you about us and our history. In 2008, Eric Crawford from Manchester, IA, USA had an idea. He and his three brothers would regularly play in golf events around Iowa. They would play mostly four person best shots and stroke play tournaments. In order to find these golf events they would have to sift through a stack of papers. Back then golf courses would type up a bulletin that includes the events for that year and they would send those bulletins out to all of the golf courses in the area. Eric mentioned, “There has to be a website for this!” so he went home and checked… There were various websites that had a few golf events listed. One even had 300 events on it! (Yea, not too impressive..)
Well, after a 3 year study GolfTourney.com found that there are an average of 8 golf tournaments per golf course per season. Meaning that there are over 200,000 golf tournaments in the United States each year!
GolfTourney.com is a website dedicated to helping golfers find golf tournaments. From a technology standpoint, the golf industry has been behind the times- We are here to create a seamless integration between the beloved classic game of golf and the newness and ease of technology in the 21st century. With Golf Tourney any player, good or bad, high handicap or low handicap, from anywhere can search and find local amateur golf tournaments in their area. When a person thinks about golf brands they think of brands like Titleist, Ping, TaylorMade, Scotty Cameron and Footjoy. When they think of golf courses they think of courses like TPC Sawgrass, Augusta National, and Pebble Beach. When people are at work they ache to get to their home golf course or their favorite course may come to mind. Here at Golf Database, LLC we want GolfTourney to be the brand you think of in regards to finding golf tournaments, finding golf tournament partners, buying and selling golf clubs, and your go-to for golf tips, forums, and golf course information. Golf Tourney is and always will focused on becoming the spearhead of the golf industry. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us!
