CourseMate Club App is perfect addition to the business savvy club pro
Why I hear you ask?
Because not only is a perfect tool for the club to communicate, engage and grow participation and increase retention rates of it members but it is also an excellent way for the club pro’s to:
- increase their revenue
- provide better service
- and even engage with people that would not have walked in to the shop beforehand.
How can CourseMate do this?
Because CourseMate comes with GPS course guides, lets golfers know of upcoming events, current promotions; allows members to log into their accounts and is quick way for all golfers to book their tees; this means that both members and visiting golfers download the app for its ease and usefulness on and off the course and this that makes it the perfect tool for the club pro too.
With CourseMate app in the golfer’s hands the pro has an easy communication and selling tool direct to their target audience. This means that - from wherever they are – their golfers now have 24/7 instant, easy access to:
- Book their lessons
- Buy coaching packages or gift vouchers
- Purchase items directly from the online pro shop
CourseMate is what is known as a gateway app - it can link to virtually any booking or member system out there, providing golfers with a quick, mobile friendly way to book.
What Else Can CourseMate Golf Club App Do?
And that’s just the start - with its dedicated promotional pages and upcoming events section the Pro can really capitalise upon and increase profits even further by promoting all the services they have including:
- Demo and fitting days
- New season stock in
- Seasonal/end of line sales
- Upcoming group lessons
- Junior summer camps
To optimised profitability, by coupling these promotions and events up with timely push notifications ensure that their message is placed directly in the golfer’s hands for easy instant action.
Pros can even increase their levels of service to the club’s members by communicating things like last minute availability on matches, closures of tees and other important course related messages.
The other important aspect of CourseMate for all those business savvy pros, is that every time the app is downloaded, you collect their names and emails (in a GDPR friendly manner) without having to ask them! Which means that even should they start off as a green fee visitor, you can then actively market to them via the app and via email.
Finally as CourseMate provides golfers with more than just a booking platform - i.e. they get free GPS course guides, club scorecards, can see what's on or get notified of last minute spaces or course/tee closures plus can take advantage of upcoming promotions it makes it a go to app for your club.
Link Directly To Your Online Store Or Booking Software
As you can see from the image below just how well Foremost runs within the CourseMate app (it does it so well that it even looks like its own Foremost app!) making it very easy for your golfs to book lessons, or buy vouchers, and to purchase golfing items directly from your club app, with you, the pro, earning the commissions.
