How Sawted Works

Send FREE automated Tee Time SMS reminders to your members and visitors from your HandicapMaster Competition software, Jonas and BRS Software!

Our software is running in numerous golf clubs in the UK and South Africa. If you would like a reference, please contact George Rouke at Windlesham Golf Club in Surrey on 01276 458145.

Operation

  • SMS are sent from a unique UK number, so members know where the SMS originates and they have the option to opt out or reply to the SMSs received.
  • To opt out, a member simply replies STOP to any SMS and they will be excluded from any future SMSs from the club. Your members’ data will also not be lent, sold or hired to any third party. This is in full compliance with the U.K Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations.
  • SMS reminders are sent the day before – the time of the send can be customised to your requirements and easily changed should the need arise.
  • A typical SMS reminder will read: “Hi <NAME>, you are teeing off at <CLUB> from the <TEE> at <TIME> tomorrow (<DATE>). <SPONSORS MESSAGE>
  • There is also an option to send a manual SMS to members on your tee sheet to warn them if the course is closed due to heavy snow, flooding etc. This message will only be sent to members on that day’s tee sheet. (It can be sent to today’s golfers or tomorrow’s golfers).
  • If a member replies to a SMS it is routed back to the club via email.

Clubs report that it enhances communication with members, makes golf check-ins more streamlined and members love getting the reminder so they don’t have to look for their tee times online.

We are doing a deal with major golfing brand in the UK to sponsor the Tee Time SMS reminders. You therefore get this facility FREE of charge. In return our sponsor has a tag at the end of each tee timer reminder. We also send one marketing SMS to unique numbers per month thanking members and visitors for playing at your club and inviting them to try or buy a product from your on course golf shop. We also send an emailer to members to promote our sponsor’s products. Our philosophy is to drive members into the on Club’s Pro Shop. (If members do not wish to receive these SMSs or Emails they simply opt out by replying STOP to any SMS received)

We send all SMS tags, SMSs and emails to you for approval before sending them to your members. We do all the SMS and Email sending, we do NOT give your member data to our sponsor or any other third party.
