Golf RFP Launches To Golfer's & Golf Courses Across The USA

Golf RFP Launches Online Solution Designed to Connect Golf Groups With Golf Courses

Golf RFP has launched a beta version of its Request for Proposal (RFP) website designed to connect golf groups with golf courses through a simple bidding process. This is the golf industry’s first online solution that addresses the group business segment.

Golf RFP is a free service to any user, golf organizer or meeting planner that completes an online profile. Once the profile has been completed, the user may submit a Golf RFP for one or multiple days of golf, up to seven consecutive days. Users will then receive offers from golf courses interested in earning the group’s business. “We put the power of the sale in the hands of the golf course. It’s up to each individual course if they want to bid on the RFP and how aggressive they wish to get in hopes of winning the business,” said Gary Lorfano, Golf RFP founder.

The website is now accepting memberships from golf courses looking to join the Golf RFP network of courses. Each membership type requires an initiation fee. Fees range from $600 for a Member Club and $1,000 for a Premier Club, which includes special advertising benefits on the Golf RFP website.

“Today, a golf course relies significantly on group business and that is where Golf RFP will focus,” said Lorfano. A former Tournament Coordinator while at the Marriott Orlando World Center and current owner of Entertainment Solutions Group, a golf centric sports and entertainment company, Lorfano understands not only what the golf courses need, but how to best assist the golf coordinators tasked with creating, managing and implementing a golf event.

During the beta launch, users will be able to complete their online profile and receive a user name and password. Golf courses will be able to register for the network by completing their online profile and selecting their membership type. The entire website, with connection between users and golf courses, is scheduled to go live on Wednesday, March 13, 2013.
