March Tip for Course Managers: Keep players away from the first tee for as long as possible.

March Tip for Course Managers: Keep players away from the first tee for as long as possible.

Perception is reality!  A first tee crowded with players immediately gives the players the perception that “It’s going to be a LONG day.”

 

When this happens - even before a player tees off - the emotional value of today’s game has already been lost. “I had to wait on every shot” is how golfers define the anguish of slow play. And if the waiting starts before the first swing as they see their starting time falling further and further behind, the day is ruined. You are now overfilling your course with angry, frustrated customers.

 

Courses that gain control of the first tee and carefully manage the flow of players from check-in at the pro shop…to warming up on the range…to putting on the practice green…to arriving at the first tee 10 minutes before their starting time, are managing the perceptions of their customers.

 

Now the perception will be “It’s going to be a great day!”  You’ll be delivering your promised starting time, the first tee will be empty and welcoming, and your customers’ perception of value for price paid (whatever that price may be) will bring them back again and again.
