50 golf clubs in the UK and Ireland now benefit from Sawted’s tee-time reminder system, many sponsored by TaylorMade. The system is fully automatic and works with tee sheets and competition sheets various back office systems.
“It’s a great way to get our golfers to the tee on time” enthuses Stuart Turner, General Manager at South Herts Golf Club. “We have been running Sawted for over a year and my golfers just take it for granted.”
TaylorMade has joined forces with Sawted to provide Tee Time SMS reminders to golfers on the day before they are due to play golf. The service is similar to ones provided by GP practices, dentists, opticians and the NHS to remind people of their appointments. Text messages are sent directly to mobile phones which eliminates the chore of sifting through emails.
Golfers love the service saying things like “I can’t express enough how useful it is, especially when you have booked a few days in advance. It is also great for competition times. I don’t have to hunt for my time, it’s just sent to my phone.”
Sawted sent over 10 000 Tee Time SMS reminders in July. The momentum is picking up with new clubs signing up all the time. Members love receiving their tee time reminders and clubs have reported a decrease in no-shows. Clubs can also send SMS messages to golfers on today or tomorrow’s tee sheet, or to specific groups of golfers. Enhanced Communications Sawted!
We are honoured to be sending Tee Time SMS Reminders, again this year, for The Golf Club Secretary’s 20th Open Championships. Golfers receiving their tee time information via SMS found it very convenient and professional.
Sawted’s software can now send Tee Time SMS Reminders to golf clubs using HandicapMaster or MasterScoreboard to manage their competition start sheets.
Golfers receive an SMS the day before their round of golf, informing them of their tee off time and which tee box they are teeing off from. They don’t have to log onto a web site to look for their tee time details, or browse through a start sheet document that is emailed to them.
If the golf course is closed due to snow or excessive overnight rain a SMS can be sent to golfers on the start sheet to inform them of this.
Effective communication, Sawted!
