In early 2000 passionate golfer and information technology specialist Gilles Gauthier, a member at Club de Golf Boucherville, develops an automatic lottery draw program to help a friend at the club, who manually manages ballots every week and needs to simplify and quicken the process.
Over the next few months, more and more clubs inquire about the system and the business begins.
Clients continued to make more feature request and so the platform expanded to include many new modules including supporting 36 holes, online reservations, member files, handicap, restrictions, and more.
With a focus on Canadian private and semi-private clubs, the team and technology continued to advance and become a market leader in the club management industry.
In early 2019 GGGolf was acquired by vertical market software aggregator Valsoft.
In late 2020 GGGolf was acquired by Canadian based marketing and payments solution provider Ackroo to expand their product and service offering and to help expand and grow the GGGolf technology and team.

The Royal Ottawa Golf Club is very pleased with the first year of using the GGGolf Golf Management system. GGGolf has significantly improved our golf operations and our members enjoy the numerous features GGGolf Member Services has to offer.
Like most private clubs, we have our own unique culture and special rules. GGGolf’s adaptability has met all of our needs to date, either with their existing programming or re-writing some programming to accommodate our specific requests
Gilles and his team at GGGolf have been absolutely wonderful to deal with over the last few years. They are always there when we need help, pretty well any time of day. Their handicap system truly changed the way we are able to do things. GGGolf is a wonderful program for a busy golf course like ours.
