With spring right around the corner, golfers are beginning to go to golf shows, clean their clubs, order new gear and maybe hit some balls indoors. Golfers very much like the latest gadgets and gizmos. Why not be front and center on their phones?
The Benefits of Going Mobile
There are benefits for both the golfer and the course. For the golfer, they are able to use a digital scorecard, order food so it is ready at the turn, get the latest deal for being a loyal customer and more.
For the course, it opens up revenue streams by engaging with the loyal customers and attracting new golfers. You will grow your marketing list and reward customers with loyalty and last minute offers. Below are some of the main features that can impact a golf course’s revenue and operations.
Key App Features
1. Mobile Scorecard
Toss those old-school scorecards aside. With mobile scoring, players don’t have to worry about keeping track of paper scraps. Even better, you won’t have to worry about reading your buddy’s chicken-scratch handwriting—it’s all right there, plain as day, on your mobile device.
2. Custom Golf Course
Courses can offer their golfers optimum hole-by-hole insight, like yardage, bunker warnings, and basic golf tips. The mobile app acts as a golfer’s custom handbook for success, treating each hole as an opportunity to improve your game.
3. Tee Times
It’s 2017—there’s no need to make a call to find out which tee times are available. Simply open up the mobile app, use the Reservations feature to choose a desired and available time to tee off with your group, and move along. This makes the booking process more automated and streamlined for the club and golfers alike.
4. Event Announcements
Golf clubs have proven pretty versatile venues. The events feature allows clubs to post the dates and times of tournaments, weddings, corporate events, and more. Members can view the upcoming calendar for detailed info on each event, RSVP, communicate with other attendees, and even submit event photos!
