Golf Slow Play Solution

 

How Pace of Play Clocks solves Golf Slow Play

The Pace of Play Clocks solves the issue of slow play by breaking the front nine and back nineinto time checkpoints. Golfers who enjoy the game and respect their personal time naturally respond with a positive frame of mind to their pace.

Management sets the pace. The clocks are offset to that pace so that a group only needs to remember their Tee Time and will adjust their pace keeping the round moving at a respectful pace.

Most of the time it is just a nice reminder to get a foursome to keep the play moving and this is exactly what is happening with this solution.

Golf Game Clock

The golfer(s) only need to know his/her tee/starting time and the pace is set. Placing 2 golf clocks on different holes on the front and a couple on the back nine, work exceptionally well in keeping everything rolling at a good clip.

Course management decides where it is best to place the clocks on the course, and offsets the individual clocks to display the course’s pace of play. For example, management wants a “pace” that would have groups arrive at the 4th tee 45 minutes after they tee off.

The 4th tee clock is offset by 45 minutes. Therefore, if a foursome teeing off at 8:00 AM is maintaining their pace of play, they will arrive at the 4th tee in 45 minutes and the clock will show their 8:00 starting time.

When a group sees a clock, they can adjust their pace. The high positive response at golf clubs using this system confirms this response.

Throughout the round the placement of the clocks will allow the players to speed up when necessary in order to maintain the course’s recommended pace of play.

Slow Play Solution in an Amicable Manner

The Power and Value of the Golf Pace of Play Clocks is when a foursome starts to fall behind. When they see the pace clock and it displays a time later than their tee time they know they need to move a bit faster and typically will regain their pace on the next hole.

Customer Service at a golf course is very important and many slow play remedies sometimes can come up short in this area. This solution gives not only the responsibility to the foursome but more importantly provides the tool (on course clocks) to help them manage their play.

Game Clocks are in a number of Sports. Hockey, Football, Soccer, Basketball, to name a few. The game clock frames theses sports and now many country clubs and golf clubs are making this amicable approach, part of their golf operations.

Getting Started

We recommend the use of 5 clocks. Atypical configuration would be to place one at the first tee, so the players understand the program and then place 2 on the front nine and 2 on the back nine. This is the true solution to golf slow play.

Depending on how you operate your 1st tee, you may not need a clock at the 1st tee, in which case you would only need to order 4.
