21st Century Golf
If you've been playing golf for longer than ten years, then you remember the way that you used to have to book tee times. If you had a competition on a Saturday or even around with your friends on a Thursday morning then early in the week you had to:
- Give the professional a call and ask him/her what time the first tee was available; making sure of course that you had enough room between the group in front of you and the group behind you.
- After booking a provisional time, you had to call all your friends and ask them if the time you booked was ok with them. If not, you had to call back the professional to change the time.
And that was just for a casual round. If you had a competition on a Saturday, you had to stop by the country club on the way home from work during the week, go into the men's locker room, find the list of tee times on the wall, and finally, pencil in your name on the few available times. You knew that you wanted to play early because you were busy in the afternoon or sometimes you wanted a lie-in on a Saturday so you put your name down to go out in one of the last groups at 2.30pm. This whole rigmarole is not necessary now that we have modern technology.
Think about it: if you can use your smartphone, tablet or PC to book a taxi, order a take away meal or find a discount putter on eBay then you should be able to reserve a tee time at your local club in a more efficient manner. The good news is that golf tee times have gone digital now so you can retire that pencil and list on the wall of the locker room.
