Tagmarshal, the leader in on-course optimization and traffic management software, has launched the latest feature in its product line, the new “Geofence Buzzer” feature. Developed from valuable input provided by Tagmarshal’s partners, the “Geofence Buzzer” emits a loud warning sound when a cart travels off a designated cart path or enters a restricted area. The optional Geofence Buzzer light is also triggered when a geofence is breached.
Unlike other types of cart control this innovative feature does not disable the golf cart (via “kill switch”), but rather continues to alert the driver until the cart returns to the path or back onto a designated area.
The new Geofence Buzzer alert is highly effective and makes it easy to manage your fleet efficiently:
How does the Geofence Buzzer feature work?
With high volumes of cart traffic placing additional pressure on courses to manage restricted sensitive areas due to additional wear and tear, as well as golfers’ frustrations with existing cart control features, the “Geofence Buzzer” serves a vital need.
In working with its more than 300 partners around the globe, who have more than 10,000 active cart tracking units currently in the field, Tagmarshal developed the “Geofence Buzzer” which forms part of the company’s “Classic” installed product for its Track and Premium Optimizer software packages.
The feature can be installed into existing or new car fleets, as well as privately-owned carts, with ease (and does not require cart screens to operate.) This is particularly useful for resorts or courses located in private developments.
“We wanted to introduce a new player-friendly alternative to managing geofences that is as effective as deactivating carts in restricted areas, but less intrusive and importantly, less frustrating for players. Our unique new “Geofence Buzzer” feature gives courses and players the best of both worlds,” Craig Kleu, COO, Tagmarshal.
Tagmarshal has spent years refining its cart tracking and geofencing features to meet these needs of its partners. Other features include the ability to track Maintenance teams and for them to have full line of sight of the players on the course, allowing them to work around players, without having an impact on flow. Tagmarshal’s Visualization Heatmaps for Superintendents and Maintenance teams, helps them to identify high traffic areas, where additional wear and tear is experienced.
The Geofence Buzzer feature forms part of Tagmarshal’s Classic Installed product, within its Track and Premium Optimizer software packages.

Tagmarshal has tracked over 10 million rounds of golf. Real-time data collected by the system using small “tags” clipped onto golf bags, installed in buggies or offered on handheld or cart-installed proprietary 2Way screen devices, transmits information to on-course staff or personnel in the pro shop identifying groups that are out of position before issues arise. Player assistants can then support in a proactive, objective, non-confrontational manner resulting in improved player experience, consistent round times and player time freed up to enjoy on-site food and beverage items as well as opportunities for additional tee sheet capacity.
More than 30 of the top 100 US courses partner with Tagmarshal including over 300 leading courses globally.
