I don’t know why a private club wouldn’t implement ForeTees at their facility.
Bringing ForeTees into Skaneateles C.C. has been one of the best decisions that I have made. Their software is user-friendly, their reports are extremely valuable to our club leadership, and their support team is the best in the business. Give ForeTees a serious look – you’ll be glad you did.
ForeTees is the best online reservation system that I have ever seen. Whether it’s tee times, event signup, demo club tracking, court reservations, dining reservations or more, ForeTees does it all.
Royal Oaks Country Club in Houston has been using ForeTees for more than 10 years and it is the most user-friendly system in the golf industry. When we converted to an online tee time system, it freed up our golf staff to focus more on the membership and their guests. Over 60% of our tee times are now booked online. ForeTees is much more than just a tee time system, their event module has allowed us to present a comprehensive sign-up program for our entire golf operation including lessons, golf tournaments and tee times. I would recommend ForeTees to every golf facility in the country; it is the best online system on the market!
I’ve been a customer of ForeTees for 8 years at two different private clubs and have expanded our online services at Pinehurst from just tee times to include dining and court reservations as well.
For us, the ForeTees Premier website represents the perfect way to showcase the best reservation systems in the business, while significantly enhancing the quality of the online and mobile experience for our members.
I have had the opportunity to work with ForeTees at three different clubs, none more complex than our situation at The Olympic Club. However, regardless of the complexity, ForeTees was always able to handle it without a problem. I have evaluated other systems, but nothing compares to the speed and ease of use for our members and staff. In addition, the support team at ForeTees is second to none.
If you can think of something that will help your operation, ForeTees will come up with a way to make it happen! Year in and year out ForeTees continues to be the only computer related service that we utilize that gives us no problems!
“My members look at ForeTees as an institution. They are so comfortable with making tee times, registering for tournaments and signing up for lessons that they could never imagine doing it any other way. ForeTees is a must for most every private golf club looking to succeed in an ever-changing golf industry!”
At Merion Golf Club, ForeTees has provided us with a state-of-the-art custom tee time program. As result, our members love using the system, reports are ‘a piece of cake’ to run, and we have eliminated hundreds of phone calls a week. Organizationally, this gets us off the phones and gets us face-to-face with the members.
We were using ForeTees at Skokie C.C. but switched to another company when we redesigned our website. We returned to ForeTees after a very short time. The members and staff are now happy again to be with a company who is the best in the business when it comes to quality of software, speed, security, and technical support.
After 37 years at Hazeltine National, I can honestly say that ForeTees was one of the best decisions I made for the golf program. It was a significant time saver for the staff and because it’s so user-friendly, more than 85% of the members made their tee times online. In my opinion, no one does it better than ForeTees!
It’s a no brainer! There is absolutely no downside to ForeTees. A true win-win for your club.
We just completed our first season using ForeTees and I can tell you that our members are thrilled with the product’s convenience, ease of use, intuitive design, and solid reliability. Our golf staff spends far less time answering the phone and our management team finds the information ForeTees makes available to us extremely valuable. The support staff at ForeTees handled every step of the process from system design to implementation flawlessly.
ForeTees has brought an unprecedented number of members to our web site. In May 2004, there were 8,400 hits by members on our site. In May 2005, two months after implementing ForeTees, we had nearly 42,000 member-logins!
The addition of ForeTees to our Club proved to be one of the smartest moves we made in ’04! Advertising Club events on ForeTees not only helped our golf operation, but our Food & Beverage numbers as well! A first class service!
ForeTees is such a strong and stable product. Its ease of use in making tee times has really made members love it. We [the golf staff] love it because it has reduced our phone calls substantially freeing us to spend more time with members who are in the shop.
Despite our concerns about how our ‘older members’ would react, ForeTees was embraced by the entire membership from the word ‘go.
In the 23 years that I have been here, it [ForeTees] is the best thing we have ever done! It runs like clockwork.
Moving into a new CMS and web reservations system is a big decision. Ease of use for the Membership is a top priority, additional considerations for adopting a system that supports and enhances the service that staff provides to the Membership are equally important. Today’s Club Members are digital natives and they want diverse, rich content from their Club’s website. Members expect to see up-to-date, flexible and easy-to-use information from their Club, on every platform. I am happy to say that the ForeTees Premier system delivers on every front. This is where the smart people who are looking for a high quality, flexible CMS should be going. Fully responsive design, excellent customer service, easy web-based event and dining reservations, top-notch CMS and superb flexibility are what made ForeTees Premier the obvious solution for Bel-Air Bay Club.
I don’t know why a private club wouldn’t implement ForeTees at their facility.
As the Golf Committee Chairman, the statistics we are able to capture with the ForeTees’ software are an invaluable tool for us to evaluate our play counts and event participation. It has become the central point of information communication for our golfing membership.
Best thing we have done in 10 years, simple to use for those individuals who do not have a clue on how to use a computer; very user friendly! This system has taken the service level provided by the entire staff to a whole new level. The professional staff is able to spend more time servicing the membership, instead of standing behind the counter answering the phone, or for the phone to answer.
Craig (Head Golf Professional)—I just want to tell you how super “ForeTees” is. While Marcia and I love talking to you and the other personnel in the golf shop, it sure is much more convenient to make, receive and change our tee times on line, as well as signing up for tournaments. Now when we are at the golf shop we can spend more time talking to you and the rest of your staff about matters other than tee times. Great move in providing this service at Meadowbrook.
The addition of ForeTees to our Club proved to be one of the smartest moves we made in ’04! Our membership truly appreciated the ability to reserve tee times from the convenience of their home or office, not to mention the elimination of the numerous phone calls required in the past! Our Professional staff was able to better serve the members ”in front of them” due to the decrease in phone calls and consequently, membership satisfaction is at an all time high! Advertising Club events on ForeTees not only helped our golf operation, but our Food & Beverage numbers as well! A first class service!
The Albany Country Club in Albany County, New York began using the ForeTees tee reservation system in the spring of 2004. As with any new system, especially one that uses a computer and modifies the time honored tradition of talking to the proshop to reserve tee times, I was apprehensive about the functionality of this new approach to reserving tee times. Well the 2004 golf season is all but behind us now in upstate New York and I can honestly say that our members who use the system have almost 100 per cent satisfaction with all of its features. Personally I have used the system since its inception and really don’t know why any club would function without it. The designers of the software certainly know the needs of club members and have pretty much thought of everything. Some of the features which I think are important include:
- The system automatically generates an email to the entire foursome when a reservation is made or when a change to the reservation is made.
- On Saturday and Sunday mornings when we have a “lottery” in effect, the system notifies the members of the foursome the requested time and when the proshop makes the assignment another email is automatically generated showing the exact time assigned.
- The tee sheets for every day are easily accessible for viewing by the member, so if you don’t have a foursome you can easily spot openings and sign yourself in.
- If you forget to make or modify a tee time during the day, but remember to do it at 3am, the system is 24/7.
- On the second day of tournaments when pairings are done by score you don’t have to remember to call the proshop to obtain your tee time. At our Club this usually means remembering to call sometime on Saturday afternoon for your Sunday time. With ForeTees just turn on the computer and either check your email or view the tee sheet.
I know that the software used by Foretees is continually undergoing updates based on input from users, but I can honestly say that in my view the system is flawless in its current format.
I am the President of Burl Oaks Golf Club. Since the inception of the on line ForeTees system, we have seen a marked improvement in the effectiveness of our pro shop staff on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Before ForeTees, our staff would tie up at least one person just answering the phone, while putting others on hold for extended periods of time. Now, members go on line, and free up our staff. As an example, I get up early every Saturday and Sunday morning, go on line from home, and reserve our groups time for the next weekend. When I get out to the club, I can inform the other members of our group of the time for the next weekend. The system has been very effective.
Fantastic!! Why would any club still be using the old paper and pencil tee time reservation system? This system allows me to get real time service. I am able to login to see who is playing, and potentially join in with a group of members I do not necessarily know. The systems also allows me to see where the slower golfers are playing, thus making it easier to get ahead of them. This is the best thing I have ever seen!!
Personally I have found ForeTees to be a great system to instantly and easily make t-time reservations anytime day or night. It is simple to use in setting up a foursome, or to be able to look at the t-sheet and join another group. I no longer have to call the pro shop to sign up for an event, ask when the greens are being aerated, or is it a guest day. I can simple look at the t-sheets on line and plan accordingly. As the Golf Committee Chairman the statistics we are able to capture with the ForeTees software are an invaluable tool for us to evaluate our play counts and event participation. We have used the home page a great deal to make upcoming golf events announcements, handicap posting information, golf course maintenance updates, etc. it has become the central point of information for our golfing membership.
The members at Hyperion Field Club began using Foretees to make tee times early in the 2004 season. It is not an exaggeration to say that the immediate response from the members was overwhelmingly positive. Even those few who doubted that it would work quickly admitted that having the system was well worth the club’s expense and the member’s small cost. In addition to the instant acquisition of tee times, Foretees has enhanced communication between the professional staff and the membership. Information such as upcoming golf events, important dates for maintenance and notices pertaining to changes in the golf program initiated by the Board of Directors is readily available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! All of us are amazed that the system can handle scores of requests during the peak reservation periods, and no “down time” has occurred. Incidentally, demonstration of the system for potential members has had a positive effect on recruitment.
Finally, as good as our professional staff is at handling the phones and satisfying requests for specific tee times, we would not want to operate our golf reservation and communication system without Foretees.
I was Chairman of the MCC Golf Committee at the time that Greg brought us the ForeTees program. Being somewhat computer literate I was in favor of pursuing, but I had reservations for many of our members. While a youth movement has started to appear, many of our members are “mature.” (I’m looking for a way to say old farts!) The Golf Committee wanted to make certain that these members would be accommodated by our regular call-in method of booking tee times.
After committing to the Foretees program, the committee asked Greg for an update each month. He was able to give us some quick statistics on the number of unique members using the system and the percentage of times booked through ForeTees. The numbers grew geometrically each month without one complaint coming before the committee!
Our members are proud to have been the first club in the area to modernize. We needle the other private club in town whenever we can and Foretees gave us some additional ammunition!
Personally, I have found ForeTees to be an excellent addition to MCC. It is extremely simple to operate, gives you a chance to view the entire tee sheet for the club, keeps track of all your times and allows you to list the members you regularly play with. The follow up e-mail feature to all members in the tee time is fantastic! You no longer need to call everyone and they can get all this information 24 hours a day.
We are very pleased with ForeTees and now if it could only read putts, you would really have something!
Congratulations to the ForeTees team for coming up with a very elegant, functional, easy to use and quick to install mobile phone solution. Not only is the software great, but you excelled in providing our club and members easy to understand steps for installing and using the software. My iPhone now has the most important application, ForeTees, front and center and always available! Great job! Thank you!
