Tagmarshal Optimizing Player Experiences at FedExCup Courses
As the PGA TOUR season draws to a close, the race to finish at the top of the FedExCup standings is turning into a nail-biter. Much of the focus will be on the BMW Championship and Tour Championship when golf’s greats look to claim the top spot. Hosts Conway Farms and East Lake, both marquee private facilities, are utilizing Tagmarshal’s pace-of-play management system.
Tagmarshal – a pace-of-play and revenue-optimizing system used globally by golf courses, country clubs and resorts – empowers courses to optimize their pace, routinely enhancing average round times by 14-17 minutes. This leads not only to an improved golf experience, but increased revenue, both by adding capacity on busy days, and by expediting those rounds, ensuring golfers have more time to visit the pro shop or 19th hole after a stellar round.

Adding value at Conway Farms with its unobtrusive player and pace tracking system, Tagmarshal empowers management and player assistants to provide an excellent on-course experience.
Conway Farms Golf Club is a private club that prides itself on the quality of the total golf experience and the fellowship shared by members and guests. It is an 18 hole, par-71 walking course committed to fast play and continuously advancing the traditions of golf.
