In 2015 Pedro Castelo Branco and Keith Barrett began to talk about an English version of GolfTattoo - the successful Portuguese website created by Pedro, Joana Cordoeiro, Rodrigo Cordoeiro and Filipe Guerra.
After exchanging numerous ideas over a period of several months the team finally decided to focus on building a real time booking App for golfers – the first of its kind in Portugal. With input from private investors, support from the National Golf Industry Council (CNIG) and the expertise of IT specialists Hi Interactive, the PTee App that you’re now using was conceived and developed.
As with many start-ups it took longer than we anticipated to bring our product to the marketplace, but the end result is something we’re justifiably proud of. And we strongly believe that as our App grows and develops it will become an essential part of the Portuguese golf industry - helping local and visiting players to more easily discover and enjoy the wonderful variety of courses and places to stay that Portugal has to offer.
We hope you enjoy the PTee experience.
