Golf Town looked to CapeTown Computing through a partnership with IBM Canada to create and establish their systems infrastructure and integration. CapeTown assisted GolfTown with their head office and first 13 big box stores across Canada.
With Golf Town we worked with IBM Canada to create the head office and store systems infrastructure that would allow for a balanced processing approach to their PC based Retail Store and centralization of information. This resulted in leading edge IBM Retail hardened equipment at the store level and a clustered server network at head office. Upon achieving an initial count of 13 stores and a head office move from temporary startup to a permanent facility, Golf Town began the process of bringing in technology and staff to allow them to move towards self sufficiency. In September of 2007, Golf Town was acquired by OMERS for 240 million (CDN), it operated 32 stores and employed over 1200 people at the time.
