Tagmarshal have successfully implemented on Whistling Straits in Wisconsin.
The course which is part of the Kohler Group has been called “Arguably the greatest Championship Course in the USA” and is now gearing up to actively manage their Pace of Play with the Tagmarshal system.

 

 

 


 

Tagmarshal’s Pace of Play management solution also provides a Marshal tracking module.

For golf course managers line of sight is a major benefit and this specific system module allows for real time Marshal tracking on the course.

That means all Marshal’s positions are available on the system map at any time.  It also provides tracking history to show which routes the Marshals have taken and how long they were active for in which areas.

The system assists management in monitoring and improving performance, but also has very direct day to day management benefits, such as saving on any ‘Where are you’ phone calls and the time generally needed to select the appropriate Marshal to respond to requirements.

Tagmarshal can also track and provide line of sight for other course assets and resources such as Beverage carts, Machinery or Greenkeeper.

To find out more, simply request a short demo of the Tagmarshal System.

 

Tagmarshal’s maiden visit to “the Show” raised more than a few cursory few eyebrows. The US golfing industries’ introduction to the company’s ground breaking pace of play management system couldn’t have come at a more appropriate time as the global game attempts to reinvigorate itself in order to attract new players to the code.

Tagmarshal attracted interest from hundreds of course managers over the course of the three days, most of whom took the opportunity to view a quick demonstration.

Craig Kleu, Tagmarshal’s Managing Director,  admitted the show surpassed his expectations, “I didn’t anticipate the type of disruption our system would cause. All of the industry players have sophisticated cart based systems but few of them appeal to the average course (largely because of their cost). We have introduced a model geared specifically towards pace of play management but that also provides plain vanilla tracking in a very attractive price bracket”.

It is common knowledge that the lengthy period of time it takes to complete an 18 hole round is detrimental to the growth of the sport, while #slowplay has become a common buzzword of the USGA and other governing bodies.

Dan Parkinson, Tagmarshal’s newly appointed US Sales Director – “Our pace management system has not only revolutionised the industries tracking fraternity by providing operators with the ability to monitor their walking fields in real time but it has also created a mechanism to measure playing time throughout the golf course”.

This is the type of technology managers have been waiting for, as they now have the ability to illustrate to ‘problem’ players where they have transgressed.

Other system features include the ability to distinguish between slow and delayed groups and a comprehensive statistics module that provides useful data on items such as average hole and round times, problem playing groups, as well as the ability to create membership pace of play profiles (see above).

Tagmarshal’s first United States installation was last summer on 2017 US Open host course Erin Hills.
