Had enough today. Does anyone else still use this dumb thing?

 

Wanted to cancel my tee time tomorrow as the course is 40 min away and it's now a 70% chance of rain.

 

Can't cancel through course cause it's a GN time.

 

Can't cancel through my account because it's less than 24 hours till tee time.

 

Can't cancel through customer service as it's automated only, no human contact.

 

May not get a refund as it's a hot deal. So either accept my fate, drive 40 min for a rain check, or get lucky and the course is actually closed.

 

D-O-N-E

I deleted the app after I noticed the “DEAL TIMES” were at a higher than standard rate. Still use TeeOff from time to time but they’re now owned by the same company so I’m sure they won’t exist very much longer.

Right, I've backed off once I realized most courses let you book through their own website and no extra fees. But I still use it once in awhile, this was only the second round this year. Now I'm out for good.

I still use it on very rare occasions - don't have the app, just do it online. For the most part though, I go straight to the course's website to book tee times or call. The biggest reason why I still frequent the site is to get a quick glance at tee time availability at a number of courses in my area without having to go to each site individually.

This is a relief. Definitely thought this was a thread about being done with golf now, rather than being done with "Golf Now."

Good point, I already took the app off my phone. So checking for tee times may be the only use.

I use it on vacation, but that’s about it: the rain check/cancellation policy is ridiculous. Once in Vegas I couldn’t get a refund/rain check despite the course being closed due to lightning: just got the run around.

I notice that too, their website was listing the tee times higher than what I usually pay when I call in a tee tim.

In my area, their availability is not reflective of the course at all.

It definitely wouldn't have been true back home in Missouri. Now that I'm in the DFW area, it's a fairly decent barometer. There are still some courses that either don't use GN at all or only offer up a small handful of tee times through the site.

My view of GN in Scotland is on the wane. The flip side of their offering BRS is being phased out by Scottish clubs and Scottish Golf Union is actively promoting their own system to replace it. Why? IMO because it is driving the market in the wrong direction. Example my home club use to charge £25 to £30 a round for a visitor, doing simple maths, if I play 20 times a year that justified my membership. GN signed up a majority of clubs in the area and were offering Hot Deals the average green fee dropped to £12-15, consequently membership has dropped. OK we may be getting more visitors but you need 45 visitors at £15 to compensate.  I think by replacing Golf Now Scottish Golf see that they can take back control of the market and push it to grow the game.

Just to be clear I'm talking about the non- Marque clubs in Scotland. The marque clubs I assume are having a tough time at the moment due to Covid but due to cost the average Scottish golfer rarely play these courses. Also the marque clubs never use GN!
