How to simplify Golf Course Management.
With multiple tee starts, various time-bands, group bookings and cancellations, managing a golf club booking system isn’t for the faint-hearted.
In fact, complex booking systems often prevent golf clubs from expanding, and can lead to a reduction in guest numbers and ultimately in takings.
Sahara Booking - The All-in-One Solution
Powered by our leading golf course management software, Sahara, our automated booking sheet combines all areas of booking into an easy-to-use module.
With its fast navigation and colour-coded booking system, golf club staff can enjoy benefits such as:
An Instant Overview
Golf Club managers throughout the industry will agree, keeping a club running smoothly has its challenges.
Knowing What’s Happening
One of those challenges is knowing what’s happening around the club and being able to act quickly should the need arise.
With the Sahara Booking Sheet, in just a couple of taps you can get a quick overview of the entire day. The module will allow you to instantly see how many events are booked, what’s happening on the course, buggy bookings, check-ins and more.
Advanced Time-Band Management
With Sahara’s pricing matrix, prices can be set in advance through a simple back office procedure. This feature gives the club full control over the year’s tee time pricing.
Within the time band management function the club can control the date range which in turn allows them to set up winter and summer times to reflect the different daylight hours. From there they can control the days of the week and the times of the day. This enables them to create as many different time bands as they need for each day.
Either keep it simple with a winter or summer setting or narrow it down to weekends or weekdays, different days of the week or early bird or twilight.
Members and visitors can book in real-time on their phones or tablets, meaning less time on reception and more time on the course.
Online features include:
Data capture for non-members
According to Leading Courses:
‘There are currently 2619 golf courses across the United Kingdom.’
With competition this high, it’s vital for clubs to collect the data of non-members to not only enhance the customers experience, but to refine marketing strategies and encourage sign-ups for full membership.
Using Sahara’s superior data capturing ability, data captured through the Sahara Booking system will be:
Why go Digital?
The latest stats from Plimsoll on the state of the UK Golf Club Industry tell us that:
‘25 companies have grown by more than 10% in the latest year, compared to 1.8% growth rates across the market.’
Stats like this certainly point to a growth in the industry, but another stat from the same report states
‘260 companies are a serial loss maker.’
Reasons for the losses are varied, but many reports suggest, in general, company losses are due to a reluctance to adopt modern technology.
Reasons for this reluctance can be:
Whether these reasons play out across the golf club industry is hard to say. But, if these are your concerns, get in touch and see how Imagination Golf can help.
