End-of-season tips from GolfNow Cares

Getting ready for the winter season, or want to ensure that your operation is running smoothly? The GolfNow Cares team has put together some best practices that you can utilize any time of the year.

  • Keep your databases safe by regularly completing local, removable and cloud backups, helping to ensure that your technology is protected in case of inclement weather or power outages.
  • If you are running your tee sheet software on a server, ensure that it is in a climate controlled environment.
  • Take care of your customer list, as it’s a vital key to the success of your business. Be sure to audit your list daily for duplicates and accurate data.
  • Do you still have a tee sheet in your system that is two years old? Consider purging your tee sheet to make room in your database. Please note, purging the tee sheet will not delete any sales or reservation history.

For any further assistance or questions, please contact GolfNow Cares at 844-800-4653.

Analyzing the competition and adjusting for growth

Knowing the competition is a critical part of any business, and golf course operators for years have adopted strategies to keep them a step ahead—anything from simply monitoring a competitor’s parking lot to other, more sophisticated means.

You know that competitive analysis not only gives you insight into what golfers consider to be “favorable rates,” but it can also help you make data-driven decisions that enhance your bottom line and keep you ahead of shifts in demand. But you also are aware of the cold fact that tracking this information down manually can be a huge time suck, and virtually impossible for most course operators to dedicate the hours required to constantly collect and analyze data.

Consolidating all of that information into an easy-to-use tool is the goal of Plus Vision from GolfNow, which saves you all that time and effort.  Plus Vision provides real-time monitoring of online rates from multiple marketplaces in a convenient dashboard view. It automates the search and reporting functions, and it presents you with the information much more quickly so that you can make immediate adjustments and capitalize on opportunities the moment they arise. The filter options also allow you to dive into the data and view nine-hole or eighteen-hole round information, walking and riding rounds, and more, which in turn makes it easier to fine tune the specific rates and options at your course.

Tools like Plus Vision are designed to give your business the extra advantage it needs.

Cameron McCormick, 2015 PGA Teacher of the Year and long-time swing coach of three-time major champion Jordan Spieth, has become an official member of the team of expert instructors featured on Revolution Golf and Golf Channel. The announcement was made on Oct. 24 during McCormick’s guest appearance on Morning DriveWatch a clip here.

As part of the new multi-year relationship, McCormick will host his own instructional series  – featured on both Revolution Golf and Golf Channel – where he’ll share with golfers the knowledge he has cultivated over a 20-year coaching career, along with his approach to improving golf performance by taking a wider perspective on what a great swing requires.

McCormick will join Martin Hall, Sean Foley, Martin Chuck and Andrew Rice as featured faculty members on Revolution Golf—the largest direct-to-consumer digital platform in golf—which was added to NBC Sports Group’s portfolio in August. Revolution Golf will feature McCormick’s first series of instructional videos on the website before the end of the year.

Connecting golfers of all skill levels to world-class instruction continues to be part of our mission. When golfers get better, they have more fun and play more. And that’s what we like to see!
