Tagmarshal returned to the PGA Show in Orlando and its unique positioning as specialist golf pace of play management solution, dedicated to generating revenue for courses and creating an excellent experience for golfers is gaining further traction in the market.

Pace of Play remains a major challenge in golf and the many course owners and golf pros who came to see Tagmarshal’s booth confirmed numerous of the prevailing trends in the industry.

“We’ve tried quite a few things, but to be honest we’re flying blind and we’re not making much progress. We really need a solution and reliable data.” so a Head golf Pro from a Texas based course.

“We’re pleased to have advanced conversations with strategic partners including Troon Golf, Billy Casper Golf, TPC Golf and the Kemper Group, all among the world’s top course management companies.”

Problematic average playing time, no real-time line of sight of the playing field, member churn, limited accountability of players as well as marshals or rangers, problematic culture around slow play and pace of play, no data to measure efficiencies, high cost of cart tracking, no options for data based optimisation of course flow are among the major challenges courses are looking to solve.

Tagmarshal CEO Bodo Sieber was pleased with the outcomes of the Show, “We started conversations and built relationships with many course owners and managers who are ready to move and be pro-active about managing their pace of play efficiently. We appreciate the many positive responses and being able to build partnerships with courses who have since signed up with our solution.”

The company’s USA Director of Sales Dan Parkinson added, “We’re pleased to have advanced conversations with strategic partners including Troon Golf, Billy Casper Golf, TPC Golf and the Kemper Group, all among the world’s top course management companies. Our recent implementation of the Tagmarshal Pace of Play Management solution at Kemper’s iconic Streamsong Resort in Florida is an exciting next step for us.”

 

The year has started with a bang and the golf world looks to Orlando, Florida for the PGA Merchandise show, where the world’s top golf brands and key industry players converge end of January.

The Tagmarshal team returns after a successful introduction in 2015 and are looking forward to meeting a host of course managers, owners and players who are looking to solve place of play issues at their courses from Wednesday 27th through to Friday the 29th at stand 2993.
The company’s co-founder and CEO Bodo Sieber explains “Our team had a very good PGA show in 2015 and we’re obviously delighted to be back this year. We are looking forward to meeting up with the teams from Erin Hills and Whistling Straits again, as well as some of the other course managers where we have implemented in the last season.”
“We are looking to be long term field management partners, so strong relationships are obviously key to us, as they allow us to remain close to evolving market demands.”
New product additions and price options will be introduced and the team are ready to discuss pace of play related questions and experiences and demo the solution to interested visitors.
