How to Setup 3rd Party Online Reservations

3rd Party Online Reservations allows hotels or packagers to book to your tee sheet on behalf of their customers. If customers of a nearby hotel want to play golf, you can give the hotel the ability to book these customers to your tee sheet.

NOTE: This feature must be used with the GolfNow Internet 1.0 booking engine URL. Please contact Customer Support to obtain the URL for your course.

This procedure requires some prior knowledge of GolfNow Reservations. The following tutorials will assist in creating 3rd Party Online Reservations:
