Get every golfer to play one more round

onemoreroundThe Coupon and Promo Code functions within your GolfNow Reservations POS system are unique ways to incentivize golfers, keeping them coming back for more. We can now provide golfers with tangible incentives right from the counter, encouraging them to book their next round at your course.

Using technology already available to you, coupons can be automatically printed from the receipt printer when a “trigger item” is sold. You can link coupons to specific sales items or SKUs, including the ones you’re already using to ring in phone or walk-in reservations. With separate sales trigger items set up for phone and online reservations, you can link unique coupons with various promotions to each – meaning we can target each type of customer differently.

This is a great opportunity to invite golfers who may not have an existing online reservation to visit your website and book their next tee time online (i.e. “Thank you for playing at XYZ golf course! Save 20% on your next round when booked online by entering Promo Code XYZ20 on our website at www.XYZgolf.com/teetimes).

And since we ring up online customers separately, we can offer them a separate incentive to come back, too. Examples include a free small bucket of range balls, or food and beverage discounts that can be used during their next visit to your course.

By using the GolfNow Reservations Coupon feature, we enhance the way we channel manage – driving more golfers to your website, increasing customer loyalty and retention.

Please watch the short video below or click here (<4 mins) to learn how to use the Coupon Feature today!

Daily golf course management best practice #7 – Are you a blocker?

blockerThere are 3 important reasons why blocking your tee sheet is a best practice – especially compared to any other method for managing your course’s start and end times:

  1. Reduce technology disruptions: For example, if you change your course’s start times from 6 AM to 7 AM without adjusting the intervals in the auto loads, there will likely be a technology sync failure. This could result in your course’s available inventory inaccurately posting to your online channels.
  2. Improve product consistency: Everything you do should be thought of as an extension of your brand. Ensuring consistency for golfers in the when and how of tee time structure reinforces consumer familiarity and improves confidence in your product.
  3. Accumulate business intelligence: Maintaining consistent intervals allows you to track the performance of individual intervals when analyzing data, allowing you to find specific intervals that are historically in higher demand. This is especially helpful when looking for areas of opportunity during holidays and other critical, high-demand periods.

As we approach the end of daylight saving time, consider these three points before making adjustments to your start and end times. And be sure to ask yourself: are you a blocker?
