The leading golf booking platform provides American Express Card Members in six Asian markets with direct bookings and rate savings on hundreds of courses worldwide

LONDON, Nov. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- golfscape announced today a partnership with American Express to enhance American Express Card Members' golf benefits. From now until 31st March 2018, American Express Card Members in mainland China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam who are new to golfscape can enjoy 15% savings on their first booking, while Card Members who are current golfscape users can enjoy 5% savings on bookings.

The golf platform helps customers discover new courses to book and play, conveniently curated in over 20 golf destinations worldwide. American Express Card Members will be greeted with a co-branded site and a welcome message when visiting golfscape.com. During the booking process, Card Members may use their respective promo codes to apply the savings and instantly secure the desired tee time and pay for their bookings with their American Express Card.

The partnership is launching at a time when golfscape is experiencing significant growth in Asian markets. It's estimated that Asia is home to 23% of the golf population worldwide, but only 14% of the total golf facilities, with 176 golf projects in development to fulfill the demand according to a 2017 R&A report. By 2020, Asia is expected to double its share of global middle class consumption to 42%. Economists believe that increased incomes will bring the drive to set oneself apart from others — making leisure experiences such as international golf travel and sporting expertise highly sought after as status symbols.

"The affluent customer profile that golfscape shares with American Express uniquely positions us to deliver relevant golf benefits in a timely way with our mobile booking and concierge platform," explained Raghad Mukhaimer, CEO of golfscape. "At the same time, with hundreds of partner golf courses utilizing our technology for tee time and revenue management, we can supercharge their distribution efforts by bringing our supply network into a relevant customer base like American Express," he continued.
