Improved Booking Interface

Golfers will now be able to book their specials through an improved booking interface. They will be able to see the description and price of your Internet Specials while they browse through your available specials. The more comfortable the golfer is on your site, the more likely they are to come back.

Best Practices

  • Link internet specials with promotional ideas and holidays
  • Communicate with your customers via email about these specials
  • Setup an internet special if an outing or large group cancels
  • Run course utilization reports to find the slow periods on the tee sheet and run specials corresponding with these
  • Offer an early twilight special – often times, the hour leading up to twilight is slow due to customers intending to wait for twilight to play instead of paying a full rate

Why use Prepaid Specials?

  • Guarantees revenue for the round being booked online.
  • Won’t have to worry about no shows, cancellations or bad weather.
  • GolfNow Reservations recommends that you use Prepaid Specials for all of your internet specials.
  • Decide what your policy will be for prepaid specials before setting it up. Specifically, are you offering rain checks or refunds to this customer?
