Clubs are already accepting bookings via the free Crown Golf App, which is available now for Apple devices in the App Store.
The Crown Golf app gives live availability for each club’s tee sheet, and is now the fastest way for golfers both to book a tee time at a Crown Golf club, and to find their nearest Crown Golf facility.
When a golfer books a tee time via the app, it is automatically added to their smart phone’s calendar, with a function to see all bookings both current and historic. The app also enables a golfer to store details of the friends with whom they most commonly play golf, for easier future bookings.
Crown Golf has introduced the new app at all of its properties with the exception of St Mellion International Resort, Batchworth Park and Nine of Herts.
“This app is already saving time both for our Members and for our regular visitors” said Operations Director Guy Riggott. “Golfers usually have their smartphone near to hand these days, so we are encouraging all of our customers to download the Crown Golf app and to make it part of their lives.
“Our clubs have tens of thousands of regular visitors throughout the year, and we will be emailing them promotional codes which they can redeem via the app for reduced rates when the club has a special offer such as a bundle deal or a time-specific discount.
“But it is not just for visitors: Crown Golf members booking a tee time via the app are automatically recognised, enabling our members to get on with their lives knowing that their next game of golf at the club is securely booked”.
A version is being planned for Android phones, to be launched later in 2014.
