Golf courses are known as some of the most beautiful places in the world. Sports enthusiasts often travel from course to course, enjoying the scenery and the challenges each course provides.
The owners of golf courses face a number of challenges when it comes to restricting access. When unauthorized individuals enter a golf course without permission, they can cause damage to the course’s landscapes and features. Theft is common as well. Golf carts, clubs, and other assets are all at risk. Another problem with unauthorized access is that it poses a significant safety hazard. Even if an individual does not have permission to be on the course, they can still take legal action if a golf ball hits them or they are injured while on the property. It’s crucial that golf courses and country clubs do all they can to prevent unauthorized access.
Mint Controls’ RFID solution provides an easy, reliable way to track members and prevent unauthorized access. Members and employees carry special cards, embedded with RFID tags as they travel throughout the property. RFID readers are strategically placed to automatically collect and transmit information regarding each individual member’s exact location. These cards provide members with instant access to courses, restrooms, pro shops, and more. Our solution enables management to quickly locate unauthorized individuals so that they can be removed from the property.
Providing Members With a Better Experience
This solution can be expanded to increase security and improve the level of service the golf course is able to provide its members. For example, golf carts can be tracked as well as the amount of time spent at each hole. This will ensure golf carts are not removed from the property and that carts are not driven into areas where they are not permitted. Member identification is tracked along with the golf cart to prove liability when issues arrive.
In addition to preventing theft and locating members, the information provided by the system enables management to learn member behaviors and preferences. For example, when members appear to be spending a long time getting through the course, this would indicate that they might benefit from lessons. If a member consistently visits the pro shop after playing a round but never purchases anything, it might be time to send a coupon. This prompts an opportunity for the golf course to sell additional services and products to their members.
This solution can be modified to include a number of additional features and options. Please contact us for more information.
