One Golf Network is a marketing network organisation which helps golf clubs market and sell tee times to individuals, societies, corporate events or golfing holidays. It’s operated by Gemini Network Media which offers complete marketing and management solutions to golf clubs and courses.
This might include online booking of tee times to email marketing services to promote the club, the course and, naturally, whatever promotions and special offers the club might be running. It can provide total golf club management services under the Gemini Media banner, a service which provides complete management of all essential areas of the golf club, from managing memberships and golfer’s handicaps to stock taking and inventory.
As part of this wider network of services they form an integral part of a golf club’s marketing strategy. With an increase in both global golf tourism as well as heightened degree of formalising the use of golf for corporate, business and networking purposes there’s a requirement for robust booking systems, available both online and through third party agents. One Golf Network, as the UK partner of a global golf reservation service provider (Golfswitch) deliver real-time booking solutions which allows the golfer to have up-to-date access to tee-times and green fee costs and the chance to book instantly online.
Conversely this provides a further service for golf clubs themselves as it aids revenue and management – the tee times automatically logged on to the club’s booking system.
This is a marketing network aimed at delivering easier and more productive solutions for independent golf courses of any size. In this sense it is providing a different service to that which FORE Business provides. FORE Business delivers networking communities on a local basis aimed at businesses and business leaders coming together through golf for the purposes of growing their respective companies.
With regard to making bookings for golf events, ad hoc rounds for business entertaining and such like, the need to utilise a service for tee time reservations is minimised due to the fact that the members know that each month they have a scheduled fourball arranged through the organised events which run throughout the year. FORE Business members have their golf arranged for them which can be scheduled into the diaries well in advance, playing and indeed networking with colleagues and potential new business opportunities consistently and with minimum organisational fuss.
