About Us

Our mission, history & statistics

The intelligentgolf concept was created by a golfer as a product that could make playing in golf competitions at club level easier and more rewarding. After significant development, it has grown to a service that helps not just golfers, but golf club committees, and corporate golf club management.

With increasing problems of computer viruses, failed backups and differing operating systems, a system that has only two requirements - a modern web browser (we love Firefox, Opera & Google Chrome) and an internet connection lets you spend less time wrestling with upgrade disks and more time achieving what you are looking to do which makes a lot of sense.  It simplifies our support requirements as well - we don't have to worry about which version of Windows you are running, or if you have installed such and such a service pack - this means we can respond faster to you when you really do need help.

The company was founded on principles developed at blue chip companies such as IBM, where intelligentgolf's managing director developed security and infrastructure solutions for some of the biggest eBusiness names out there.  These methods are used to ensure the same high availability and reliability you come to expect from sites such as Google, the BBC and other SaaS companies such as  With resilient servers and offsite backups we have worked very hard to ensure that the intelligentgolf service is there whenever you need it - 24/7.

intelligentgolf is part of ClearCourse Partnership, a group of innovative technology companies providing membership software to SMEs and organisations. The ClearCourse platform provides us with enhanced integrated software opportunities, payment capabilities and strategic and product guidance, allowing us to offer our customers the best software and client service possible.
