Golf Management

Golf is a more exclusive sport than ever, and golfers justifiably expect an exclusive service. The Golf Management module allows for flexible administration of tee times. Players’ handicaps are already considered when making a reservation. Trainers, golf carts, equipment and supplies can also be booked on demand, and you can easily shift and edit bookings in seconds using drag and drop.

The program can configure all reserved items separately and individually. For example, the tee-time reservation for an 18-hole round should not block the entire golf course for four hours, but it has to block the golf cart for this time frame and the booked golf pro for half an hour longer, since a short debriefing at the 19th hole is often part of the service.

The day-view function gives you information about the capacity of your golf courses at a glance. Daily reports show who your guests were, which tee times were booked and which items were reserved separately.

 

Since the Golf Management module works in conjunction with all the other modules of Reservation Assistant, tee times can be included in packages and vouchers for tee times can be printed. This integration also protects you against double bookings, since the system does not allow reservations for spa treatments and tee times for the same guest at the same time.

The golf management module works together with all other modules of Reservation Assistant. Therefore tee-times can be included in packages, and vouchers for tee-times can be printed. Additionally, this integration protects you against double bookings, since the system does not allow reservations for spa treatments and tee-times for one guest at the same time.

The golf shop is also directly linked to other departments, which means that your guests’ purchases in the golf shop are automatically charged to their hotel bill.

In addition, with our Web Engine, you can offer your guests a convenient self-service website whereby they can make their own reservations and purchase products, making it easier than ever to plan an unforgettable golf experience.
