Follow up to a previous comment I made (and a lesson learned! Never say never) Michelle from SCGA, immediately after my comment and identified my problem. Although we weren’t able to fix it, at that time, eventually the problem was solved. I used the system last weekend and everything was fine. Thank you Michelle!
Tee Time Reservation System FAQ
Why is the SCGA offering a tee time reservation system?
We’ve heard from a number of our clubs who were struggling with the costs and parameters of current tee time reservation systems, and hope this new tool addresses those concerns. It’s also an opportunity for member clubs to promote their facility to a wider audience and for individual members to take advantage of exclusive deals!
How does this benefit the SCGA member?
The addition of a tee time reservation system has helped turn SCGA.org into a one-stop shop for all Southern California golf needs. Along with being able to post scores, look up courses and check Handicap Indexes, golfers are also able to schedule their next tee time. This system is open to any golfer, but extends additional cost-savings to SCGA members.
What is the cost to participate in the SCGA’s new online tee time reservation service?
Golfers will be charged a booking fee of $1.49 per transaction. All fees collected are poured back into software developmental costs to keep the program alive!
How do I know my information is secure and not being shared?
All customer information is stored on an external server and is not shared with individual courses until an actual reservation is completed. Once a tee time is booked, relevant information like the golfer’s name and email address is sent directly into the course’s tee sheet.
What about other programs, like rewards and ZINGTIMES?
These programs are 100 percent optional to all SCGA members, but extend additional loyalty deals and benefits.
Who should I contact with further questions?
Contact the SCGA at email@example.com or 818-980-3630 x321 with questions.
I am excited at the possibilities of this but how will this allow my club to get the best pricing on a selected course. For example, if I contact the course and set up a tee time at 9am for four foursomes, I may get a discount. Is there any option for members to get a “best pricing available” option when making a reservation?
I tried to book a tee time, 5 times!!! Received error messages each time!! Very disappointing! Will not use this again.
Hi Ben, thanks for checking out our new offerings! All SCGA member clubs have been invited to utilize our tee time reservation system free of charge. We certainly hope more will jump onboard.
I’m only writing this to get more points.
I am excited about the new loyalty program that has been rolled out. Although
I don’t spend much time on line I will be sure to check the SCGA site when I do.
I noticed that there are only a few courses that are able to be booked through the site. Are there any plans to expand the offerings?
It’s as if the person who is designing their web presence never used a computer. Totally useless especially for reservations.
I am trying to reserve a tee time, but I can’t access like an SCGA member. Can you help me with that?
