In the GolfNow Reservations application folder, find the file resql.xml and edit it.

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\GolfNow Reservations\resql.xml
  • Note: This file may require Admin rights to edit. Open Notepad with “Run as Administrator” and then browse to open the file.

The contents of this file look like the following:
