Reduce phone companies profits and Play more Golf !

What can be more frustrating ? You and your Golf partner turn up at the local golf course only to find there is a 2 hour wait for a tee-times or you arrange with your three 4-ball colleagues to play at 10am on a Thursday only to find, when you call up to make a reservation, that they only have tee-times at 8am or midday available. What do you do ? take a chance that your three colleagues are free at 8am ? hang up and call each of them to check, then call back and hope the 8pm slot has not gone ? or find one can only make 11am and then call all the others back to check they are ok with this new tee time ?
This dilemma is faced by golfers up and down the country, day after day. So why don’t golf clubs have online reservation systems that their golfers could use? By offering online bookings members could see, on the internet, the available time slots before they book. The golf pro/golf shop would not have to constantly take calls to book tee and everybody saves money (on wasted phone calls), saves time and enjoys the type of professional service that seems to only be expected from travel companies.
To offer a booking and reservation system to members, non-members and people wanting to book the clubhouse for a tournament or party across the internet has many advantages, it frees up staff, you never miss a call from someone wanting to play golf, clubs can take bookings when they are closed, 24 hours a day and it is great for organising tournament play. However, online reservations systems are usually expensive, need specialised IT staff, need investments in computer equipment and take too long to implement when all people want to do is focus on what they know and have that unique experience in - Golf !.
