Websites are great for initially attracting your visitors, and work well hand in hand with our app. However as you can tell, websites have a number of limitations when it comes to making you and your golfer’s lives that little bit easier.
A simple example of making your members lives easier is that they will not have to scroll up/down or hunt pages for booking links or member’s login - with CourseMate it is all centralised in one convenient place – and no need to get your members to have 2 or 3 different apps!
