Rennie said: “Golf is not just my business, it’s my passion. I’ve worked - and played - in this space long enough to know that technology is increasingly vital in delivering a great golfing and hospitality experience. It’s not just about providing a great tee-sheet with retail and membership functionality; the wants and needs of resort properties have evolved and Journey’s portfolio of products and services fully complement and enhance this. I’m looking forward to introducing the Journey platform to the market and the positive impact we’ll make to both guests and owners alike - exciting times!”
Simon Bullingham, CEO and Founder of Journey Hospitality, said: “Mal’s expertise is a perfect fit with our wish to provide the leading end-to-end experience management solution for hotels and resorts. Working with our onejourney® ecommerce platform to drive direct bookings, the spa and golf solutions enhance a guest’s digital journey.
