Getting Tee Times Are Now Hassle-Free With Golfpay

Between all the emails, texts and phone calls, organizing an 18 hole round of golf with a few friends can become cumbersome for the organizer. But not anymore.

Golfpay is a new web-based golf reservation app that will allow golfers to pay and check-in to courses from their phone. When users open Golfpay, they can view golf courses near them based on their GPS location or they can search for a specific course. Then they can view and book available tee times in the click of a button. Golfpay recently launched in October out of sunny Scottsdale, Arizona.

The app works in conjunction with Pivotal, a web-based kiosk for golf courses with an easy to use interface, which clearly lays out the golfers who are using Golfpay’s fast check-in and payment system. This app is designed to save everyone from the scratch golfer to the executive hobbysit, creating a hassle-free experience.

In addition to these innovative features, Golfpay users can quickly send reservation invites to other golfers, decreasing the amount of back and forth communication on other mediums. Split payment options also make it easy for business golfers to pay for their clients or evenly pay their portion.

“We’re giving golfers something more, when booking tee times at their favorite courses, and we also eliminated the booking fees,” said Dale Merritt, CEO of Golfpay.

Other tee time reservation apps on the market require booking fees which can deter users from hitting the green. Golfpay’s companion product Pivotal helps golf courses track new acquisitions and help create a loyal customer base through other exclusive features and programs. So if you are a regular at a nearby course, you can soon be rewarded for bringing your clients to the tee.

“With both products, we are fixing a problem by making golf more experiential and reconnecting the golfer and the golf course using killer technology that people will actually use,” said Merritt.

The platform will be implemented at golf courses throughout Arizona starting this year and in other states by 2017.
