A Proud History…A Promising Future
Celebrating over 25 Years in Business!
Tired of keeping track of inventory with pencil, paper, and a cigar box, Tom Robshaw, an assistant golf professional at the Willowbrook Country Club in the early 1990s, bought a 386 MHz computer in an effort to automate the business in the pro shop. With his brother, Rick Robshaw, he soon realized that training the non-technical golf staff to use off-the-shelf accounting software was complex and self-defeating.
Tom and Rick began to design their own software and in 1992 introduced what eventually became Club Prophet Systems, the first Windows-based point-of-sale system specifically designed for pro shop operations and the world’s leading Point of Sale system for the golf industry.
In 1993, they founded Club Prophet Systems Computer Software Company, headquartered in Oakmont, Pa. The industry responded well: Club Prophet Systems now operates in over 1,700 golf facilities of all types and sizes in 16 countries and 9 languages.
Today the program has expanded to include food and beverage software, integration to external accounting programs, Internet tee time options, Integrated web store, Lesson Book, Event management software, Data Collection Kiosk, USGA handicap system, and much more.
Since 1993, we continue to design modular integrated systems for Point of Sale, Food & Beverage, Inventory, Customer Management, Billing, Tee Times, Online Tee Time Reservations and Web Store for the golf industry.
