Ulster-born celebrity golf analyst launches GolfNow’s ‘Free Golf For Life’ campaign

Professional golfer turned NBC celebrity analyst David Feherty is offering local golfers a chance to win the prize of their dreams… free golf for life, courtesy of popular booking site GolfNow.

From now until midnight on August 30, 2016, visitors to GolfNow’s website will have a chance to win a free fourball every month for the next 30 years.

As the face of GolfNow’s current TV adverts, which have served to introduce the GolfNow brand to golfers across Ireland and the UK, the Bangor-born Feherty launched the new “Golf for Life” campaign during a media event hosted by the company.

GolfNow, which is owned by the Golf Channel, is  the world’s biggest provider of online golf booking technology, through which a staggering 22.5 million rounds were booked in the UK and Ireland last year – almost one every second!

Now, in a bid to reward loyal customers and attract new ones, the company is set to open up a world of golf for one lucky golfer and his or her mates, with a unique prize worth almost £60,000* to be enjoyed at a choice of over 2,000 courses in the UK and Ireland

The prize also is available to win on, a sister company of GolfNow.

We are delighted to launch our national ‘Golf for Life’ sweepstakes this month on and,” said Brian Smith, Vice President of International Sales for GolfNow.

I’m proud to say that we supported 22.5m rounds booked in the UK and Ireland last year, almost one every second.

“I’d like to wish all golfers who enter this very special competition the best of luck in their efforts to win what really is the prize of a lifetime – and also remind them to tell their golf buddies.

“If you don’t win, someone on your fourball might!concluded Mr. Smith.

Speaking on the prospect of free golf for life, Feherty quipped:

Apparently, some people think golf for life is a good thing. I’d be hoping to be eligible for parole at some stage but, hey, to each his own. But seriously, this is a fantastic prize and I’m sure that one lucky winner is going to be absolutely delighted to win it.”

The ‘Free Golf for Life’ competition is available to enter at and and golf fans can enter every day between now and the end of August to improve their chances of winning.

Founded in 2001 with headquarters in Orlando, USA, GolfNow operates in more than 16 countries and provides tee-time access to more than 9,000 courses for more than 3.5 million registered users worldwide.

Part of the BRS Golf group, the company has offices in Belfast and employs more than 70 staff in Northern Ireland.

BRS Golf was founded in 1995 by local golf fanatics and IT experts Brian and Rory Smith, and was acquired by Golf Now in June 2013.

This strategic alliance gave the local company global status, becoming a division of the Golf Channel television network and positioning it as one of the leading providers of golf technology in the world.
