The concept is based around a teesheet that has all possible tee times listed and 18 hole players have their crossover times reserved out at time of booking. 9 Hole players will now be highlighted as such and provide guidance to operators on where to place walk up 9 hole players.
For courses that only have 9 holes, the visibility of who and when crossover players are likely to come through is invaluable.
For 27 hole courses, it provides structure in positioning players crossover times to certain back nine groups. Also there is the ability to restrict certain rows to 9, 18 or mix of hole play to further control the allocation of players. Note: a club may wish to use turnaround times for the purpose of monitoring playing times at the half way house for comp days and not utilize 9 hole bookings which is possible.
