HOMESTRETCH GOLF PARTNERS WITH GOLFBREAKS BY PGA TOUR: PAPERLESS WAGERING SOFTWARE AND PRE-ROUND PARI-MUTUELS FOR GOLF TRIPS
June 2023 – Sacramento, CA – Homestretch Golf, the golf industry’s first paperless pari-mutuel platform, proudly announces a major partnership with Golfbreaks by PGA TOUR. Golf travel is a multi-billion dollar market and pairing the planning and reservation process with pre-round prediction fun makes for a great cross-company match that elevates customer satisfaction for both consumer bases.
“This partnership is a perfect fit for our current and future customers,” stated the company’s Founder/CEO David Knox. “Not only do Golf Pros and Admins leveraging Homestretch Golf deliver a better wagering experience unmatched in the industry at the group level, but betting participants love using our platform on buddy trips.” Knox continued, “Golfbreaks by PGA TOUR leads the industry in hassle-free trip planning, and the large majority of our admins and betting participants are avid golfers that love traveling on golf trips to amazing destinations. Introducing Golfbreaks by PGA TOUR’s travel experts, custom reservation service and exclusive group pricing for our participants to book and manage their golf trips, as well as including Homestretch Golf wagering in the vacation experience, will boost the enjoyment and fun factor for golf trips.”
March 2023 – With brackets at the forefront this time of year, we want to show you how to set up head-to-head match up betting opportunities for match play tourneys at your club! Homestretch Golf’s pari-mutuel system is perfect for prop bets, given the payout philosophy that losing predictions fund winning payouts. Each match serves as its own pool of money, and our proprietary odds are generated based on the dispersion of bets across the options within a match. A simple ‘pick the winner’ match up doesn’t work well with pari-mutuels as you need sufficient losing wagers to fund the winning payouts, so having only two options to bet on doesn’t work. However, we have creative Homestretch Golf admins now letting participants bet on the winner with an added wrinkle of margin of victory, which creates five or six different options and therefore, plenty of losing wagers to fund the winning payouts!
