Reading Time: 3 minutes

Many golf course operators have GPS tracking on their wishlist, and we have received many questions about how Tagmarshal’s GPS tracking system can help operators manage staff and the golf course more efficiently.

We have put together answers to five of the most frequently asked questions from our followers:

What is the set-up process?

Upon the receipt or installation of your Tracking Tags, Tagmarshal facilitates a calibration & training period of 3 weeks. The course is mapped and positional data collected affording the system’s algorithm the opportunity of ‘learning’ its’ unique ebb & flow. During this time management are given the full benefit of the live stylized map for tracking purposes.

Thereafter the full system and the rest of its powerful features (including pace of play alerts, round & hole stats and the building of player pace of play profiles) go live.

Can I track walking groups?

Yes, one person or caddy per playing group receives a tracking tag, which is then clipped onto a golf bag. Carts can have the tags installed. The data from the tags get submitted to Tagmarshal’s cloud servers to which marshals and management have access to use better manage the course.

Can I build up player profiles?

In order to build player, caddie or league profiles, as well as manage your starter accuracy, it is essential that you begin to assign groups to your tee times. Once a group is assigned to a tee time, their details are automatically saved onto the system. Therefore, every time a player visits your course you already have their profile registered.

Can I track where my maintenance vehicles are and where they have been?

Yes, the system includes a marshal tracking module allowing management to view their course staff in real time. It also shows where they have been throughout the day. Are they being proactive around the issue of pace of play?

What stats does the system provide?

All round data is stored in Tagmarshal’s cloud-hosted database and each course is given access to their statistics and maps via an easy to use dashboard.

This enables course management to evaluate items such as:

  • round times per group – evaluate slow rounds, see who the players/caddies where in the group.
  • average round times for a day or month – evaluate how the pace of play trended throughout the day or month.
  • average hole times – evaluate which holes are playing slower / faster on average versus their goal allotments.
  • round track maps – see all rounds tracked including each’s progressive time-stamps and alerts generated.
