Birdies with Brian (#04)


As golf courses become busier, it’s never been more important to make a tee time. Showing up to a golf course without one, especially on the weekend, will most likely end up with you being turned away. This can be frustrating for both parties. Golf courses obviously want the revenue, but can’t jeopardize pace of play by “squeezing someone in.”

I understand people avoid phone calls if at all possible, but most courses are on Golf Now. Usually if you’re early enough you can snag the “Hot Deal” time. This is typically one tee time a day that a golf course gives to Golf Now for them to sell at their discretion. This rate is typically cheaper than what you will find at the golf course.

It takes 30 seconds to call the Pro Shop and make a tee time. But that 30 seconds can save you a lot of headache, and gas money!
