Power of the review

Golf Advisor set yet another milestone in March, which now ranks as the best month ever for golf’s leading ratings and review website. For the first time, more than a half million unique users visited the site in March, with the record number of page views exceeding 1.3 million.

If current trends hold true, this milestone may be short-lived when final numbers are released for April. At least one key metric for the past two months has surpassed the previous as the best ever.

Additionally, the volume of reviews continues to grow at a rapid pace. So far this year, golfer reviews have out-paced the same time period in 2014 — Golf Advisor’s best performing year to date — by more than 20%.

More than 85% of the half million golfers visiting Golf Advisor each month say that reviews are important to making decisions about where they play. If your course doesn’t have a review strategy, maybe it’s time.

Thousands of your fellow golf course owners and operators from around the world descended on Orlando, Fla., for the 2017 PGA Merchandise Show, which provided an unmatched opportunity to meet with manufacturers, suppliers and service providers. More than 40,000 industry professionals spent the event exploring the offerings from over 1,000 exhibitors packed into the 1-million-square-foot exhibition space.

GolfNow was right in the mix, offering demos and presentations about our latest technologies and services designed to maximize your efficiency and profitability. The GolfNow Business team held more than 200 meetings during the event, in addition to helping Golf Advisor announce its anticipated list of the Top 50 Courses in the U.S. live on Golf Channel.

Additionally, with its stage next door, we were able to work with Golf Channel during the Show to arrange interviews on Morning Drive with several of our key partners, including Billy Casper Golf CEO and Chairman Peter Hill and Longitudes Group President and Owner Sara Killeen.

If you weren’t able to make the trek to Orlando, though, you can still get up-to-date information about new features within Ride and Plus, as well as demonstrations of the latest Reservations functions, by contacting your GolfNow representative today or visiting the GolfNow Business website.
