By implementing both Tagmarshal and Golf Genius software, Vietnam’s premier new golf destination continues to develop and improve the overall player experience, bringing many benefits such as live scoring and leaderboard technology, to its members and guests.
The management staff at PGA NovaWorld Phan Thiet will be assisted in optimizing the pace and flow of play across the two Greg Norman-designed championship courses through a state-of-the-art GPS system provided as part of the Tagmarshal technology.
Full, real-time operational oversight and reporting provides the tools to manage on-course operations effectively, resulting in enhanced player experiences and increased efficiency as the resort continues to become one of Vietnam and Asia’s most sought-after golf destinations.
Bodo Sieber, Tagmarshal’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “Enhancing the player experience is important to us. We’re proud to partner with PGA NovaWorld Phan Thiet, helping them to use Tagmarshal’s optimization technology to create truly exceptional player experiences at their course. We’re also thrilled to work with integration partners, Golf Genius Tournament Management software, and look forward to bringing the synergies of these two technologies to golfers in Vietnam.“
Peter Shaw, Golf Genius’ Director of Sales Asia Pacific, added: “From the outset, the team at PGA NovaWorld Phan Thiet has always strived to be an industry leader. As the only course in Vietnam utilising Golf Genius Software, our team is excited to work with their team and assist them to deliver best-in-class golf events for their customers. Golf Genius will help engage customers from the start of a tournament right through to communicating with them post-event. Adding an integrated solution for scoring with Tagmashal streamlines the player experience. PGA NovaWorld Phan Thiet is the first with the Tagmarshal/Golf Genius integrated solution in Vietnam which is very exciting.”
PGA NovaWorld Phan Thiet features 36 holes of championship golf, offering stunning ocean vistas alongside a rich and varied test. As the only PGA of America accredited venue in the region, the resort offers the next generation of local talent the opportunity to train and develop their games, helping to grow the sport in Vietnam.
Andrew Bowles, Nova Golf Clubs Managing Director, commented: “Becoming the first golf course in Vietnam to implement these integrated software systems is a signal of our commitment to providing world-class service to all guests of PGA NovaWorld Phan Thiet.” The venue forms part of the wider NovaWorld Phan Thiet resort, located 200km east of Ho Chi Minh City. The 1,000 hectare oceanside city project aims to become one of Asia-Pacific’s leading tourism destinations, recently opening a new 25-hectare NovaDreams Adventure World theme park, in addition to a 16-hectare sports complex designed to host international competitions.
