17 Jan Supreme Golf Acquires GolfBook & Announces Partnership with CBS Sports Digital
Supreme Golf, the world’s largest tee time booking site, has acquired GolfBook, the tee time booking platform launched in partnership with CBS Sports Digital in 2017, and formed a new partnership with CBS Sports Digital. CBS Sports Digital will promote Supreme Golf as its exclusive tee time booking platform, extending the reach of the Supreme Golf brand to its broad audience of golfers and golf fans.
“We are very excited to partner with CBS Sports Digital and add GolfBook to our portfolio of solutions for the course operator and golfer,” said Jonathan Wride, CEO, Supreme Golf. “At Supreme Golf, our mission is to provide the golfer the largest selection of tee times while offering the course operator a suite of products and services with flexible business terms to meet their needs.”
“Our new partnership with Supreme Golf is the natural progression in our overarching goal to support the golf industry and further grow the game of golf,” said Jeffrey Gerttula, Executive Vice President and General Manager, CBS Sports Digital.
GolfBook will be added to the Supreme Golf marketplace providing additional promotion and support to GolfBook’s unique golf courses who are looking for another marketplace to sell tee time inventory on their terms. GolfBook will continue to operate as a standalone tee time booking platform while expanding its relationships with golf course operators. Gene Pizzolato, formerly President and CEO of GolfBook, will join Supreme Golf as Chief Strategy Officer.
“Adding GolfBook to Supreme Golf’s marketplace, combined with CBS Sports Digital’s reach with golfers, is a powerful new formula where 1+1 can equal 3 for the golfer and the golf course operator,” said Pizzolato.
