5 Ways Golf Cart GPS optimization technology increases operational efficiency

Golf cart GPS optimization technology may provide your golf course with a lot of benefits and rewards.

It will provide you the ability to properly manage course traffic, track golf carts, boost efficiency, improve the player experience for members and guests, and generate additional revenue by optimizing your on-course operations.

By collecting and analyzing pace, golf cart tracking, and course utilization data, our golf cart GPS optimization software delivers a comprehensive picture of the course’s behavior, identifying opportunities to drive continuous improvement.

Why Do You Need to Invest in Golf Cart GPS and Optimization Software?

With substantial improvements in the golf industry and ever-increasing challenges in day-to-day operations, not to mention the golfer’s high expectations, golf clubs should consider implementing a golf course optimization and golf cart GPS tracking management system to stay ahead of the game.

Tagmarshal, the industry leader in pace of play management and GPS tracking software, optimizes the player experience on the course. 

We leverage data insights to make educated decisions, enhance course flow, uncover efficiencies, and generate additional revenue

The level of on-course service delivery that results in exceptional player experiences is what distinguishes an ordinary course from a top-notch one.

To do this, management and staff require the appropriate tools to provide them with a clear, real time line of sight of their on-course operations.

This is where Tagmarshal’s golf cart GPS and on-course optimization technology come into play.

Our 2Way 8 Inch Cart Screens are powerful golf cart GPS tracking devices, which when paired with optimization software, will optimize your on-course operation.

The optimization software, including the innovative Analytics Hub, will provide you with the insight and tools you need to successfully manage course traffic, boost efficiency, improve the player experience, and to generate more revenue.

Use the Analytics Hub’s tools to help your course to set goals, measure, and optimize – generating ongoing improvement season after season, thanks to the Analytics Hub’s sophisticated data insights and reporting.

Benefits of Golf Cart GPS Optimization Technology

We’ve developed a list of five important advantages of using live GPS tracking paired with on-course optimization technology to help you run your golf course more efficiently.

Tagmarshal’s industry-leading optimization software platform complements its 2Way screens well. 

The 2Way cart screens are available in 8-inch size, with robust, high-resolution screens with remarkable brightness (comparable to an iPhone 13 Pro!), as well as water and dust resistance, with a proven track record!

1. Labor efficiency

The data that is collected by the 2Way devices, is reviewed in relation to the rest of the field and algorithms immediately identify potential issues arising on the course for your team, before affecting field flow. These are displayed as different color icons on a live map, displayed via the Tagmarshal dashboard, on tablets, mobile phones or the PC in the pro shop. This means that you don’t need a large team of marshals to monitor pace by physically roaming the course in an attempt to identify issues – Tagmarshal does it for you. 

Now, 1 person can do this accurately and objectively from the golf office (or elsewhere!) and deploy someone directly to the playing group that’s out of position, to assist them. Plus with objective data to refer to, these discussions are neutral and take less time than in the past as players are keen to comply.

Tagmarshal’s 2Way screens also allow for 2Way messaging, so your team can send direct messages to the playing group identified, asking them to move back into position.

The data collected by the 2Way screens provides course management with important insight into how to optimize flow and proactively arrange pace control and GPS golf cart monitoring.

Ultimately it will give complete operational visibility and management capabilities, allowing smaller teams to achieve more.

In a nutshell, the golf cart GPS software can also track pace of play in real-time from the golf shop or your phone, making it simple to spot slow groups.

2. Gap Interval Management

Golf cart GPS technology assists operators in determining ideal gap intervals between playing groups, allowing them to add more tee off times to their tee sheet at certain times of the day or days of the week, resulting in additional revenue.

As the number of rounds played continues to rise as golf booms, regulating field flow is more vital than ever, to offer the greatest possible player experience.

To securely maximize capacity rather than reduce it, use your golf cart GPS  and optimization software to optimize and monitor your gap intervals — without the need to increase them.

3. Superintendent Maintenance Efficiency 

Superintendents can manage their golf maintenance and optimize on-course operations more easily and affordably using Tagmarshal’s optimization technology.

Superintendents may use the capabilities of this golf course GPS optimization system to prevent course issues and produce the best outcomes possible with the funds and resources they have available.

The heatmap visualization is a crucial element that helps superintendents make better judgments about course set-up, wear patterns, golf maintenance, and cart path policing.

Identifying high wear and tear and compaction risk areas, having data that drives course protection decisions, getting insights for hole, cart path, and other course improvements, and saving on irrigation expenses are just a few of the advantages. 

The live track map allows Maintenance teams to see where playing groups are at any time on the course. This allows them to identify gaps in play, to safely complete maintenance without interruptions or any impact on the player experience.

4. Geofencing

An accurate, automated geofence system is one of the many amazing features of the golf cart GPS software.

The latest generation 2Way system shows real-time messages and alerts that dynamically and preemptively handle any breaches in and around a course, with an enhanced golfer front-end interface.

The core aims of providing smart management solutions to assure player safety, player compliance, and reduced damaged or under-maintenance regions, as well as cart protection from theft, remain the primary goals.

Geofences are set to activate automatically at specific times of the day or on specific days of the week.

Real-time automatic alerts to the player are also available, including an audible ‘don’t ignore’ sound.

5. F&B Ordering From Cart

The ability to order meals and drinks before arriving at the halfway house results in a more efficient process that allows the F&B kitchen to operate at its best.

The kitchen staff are able to anticipate and prepare for players who are about to finish their rounds using this golf optimization technology.

Players will also spend less time at the halfway house because their meals will be ready when they arrive.

Furthermore, time saved while playing is spent in the Pro Shop and on F&B, resulting in greater spending. When players complete their game on time, they are more likely to spend money on food and beverages as well as at the pro shop.
