GolfNow Teams with Youth on Course on App for Kids’ Tee Times

Members of the Youth on Course initiative now have an easy way to gain access to golf courses.

GolfNow’s integration of a custom, tee-time booking engine for Youth on Course offers its 100,000-plus junior members an easier and more convenient way to play their next round of golf, while promoting more play and generating more rounds and revenue for participating golf courses.

The functionality will be available in the YOC app, providing all members with 24/7 smartphone access to tee times at participating GolfNow golf courses in North America. This is in addition to a February announcement that all YOC members also have access to a complimentary GolfPass video subscription.

“Youth on Course members are playing more golf than ever before and the transition to online bookings via GolfNow is a giant leap forward for our members and for our participating facilities,” said YOC Chief Technology Officer Grant Gaudette.

“GolfNow is the industry-leading tee-time marketplace and shares our vision that the future of this great sport starts with ensuring everyone has access to play. The YOC app now offers a portal for young people to learn how to shoot lower scores with GolfPass, then apply that new knowledge on the course with GolfNow,” Gaudette said.

“It’s hard to find any youngster these days without a smartphone – it’s how they connect with the world,” said Jerramy Hainline, senior vice president & general manager of GolfNow.

“This custom-booking app puts golf front and center in their world and makes it easy and convenient for them play a round by themselves, with a fellow Youth on Course friend or with a family member.”

YOC statistics show more than 40 percent of its members also book for an accompanying adult when making plans to play.
