Golf was once viewed as a pastime only accessible by the rich and famous. Over the years that image of the sport of golf has changed and access to the game has grown to include nearly all with an interest to play. Golf courses draw varied clientele from beginners learning the game, to spectators attending a tournament as a fan. And of course, there are business people who conduct meetings on the course and as tournament sponsors and guests. As a business, golf courses come in all sizes and iterations. Golf courses can range from small 9-hole municipal pitch n’ putts to locations with multiple 18-hole championship courses. Many championship golf courses are attached to exclusive country clubs. The professionals who own and operate these businesses vary from private land developers and operators to municipalities and cooperative club equity shareholders.
The size and space required to accommodate a golf course and to provide players with a relaxed environment where they can hit a few balls, play a round and enjoy a day out comes with a considerable cost. Course owners and operators must maintain the grounds and have ongoing overhead costs to keep courses in proper order. In order to tend to grounds, facilities maintain equipment to cut grass, move dirt and sand and to keep optimal soil conditions. Golf courses operate golf carts, employ groundskeepers, administrative and office staff, golf pros, general laborers and caddis. On premise software and software-as-a-service (SaaS) systems handle employee management, member and ticketing services, tee times, accounting, billing and golf course payments. These systems often include fixed point of sale devices at the pro shop, handheld mobile devices for servers at the 19th hole and to online engagement for booking and paying for tee times.
