Why some apples are 26 minutes slower than others – Golf Pace of Play Management Comparison

Tagmarshal is working with a course in Wisconsin, a private club that offers a unique opportunity of showing some interesting trends.
The club have a unique circumstance in that they vacate and rent out their course to a third party management company on a Monday.
This gives us a chance to compare apples with apples via round data.
We have tracked thousands of rounds on the course with the system implemented and policed on regular and member days and then there is Monday where the system is passively tracking because it is installed in the club’s carts, it is however not actively managed.
Presumably not dissimilar to what the course used to be like before before getting Tagmarshal as their Golf Pace of Play management solution.
The result:
26 minute difference on average 

Monday’s 3rd party days 4:23:44
vs
Course Busy days (Thursday / Saturday / Sunday) 3:57:52

The other telling fact is the consistency of the managed busy days – which is very steady – trend declining.
The non-Tagmarshal Monday variance is quite volatile with a 14 minute average time swing.
The course had an initial goal time of 4:10 and had classic challenges of going over the goal time regularly and sometimes heavily on its busy days. Now even the busy days are consistently below 4 hours and club management objectives have been met if not surpassed.

“TAGMARSHAL HAS HELPED OUR COURSE GET ON TOP OF PACE OF PLAY. WE ARE NOW A PROUD 4 HOUR ROUND COURSE.”
