Collaboration with Carolina, Florida, Metropolitan sections center on company’s tournament track, pace of play systems
ATLANTA, Ga. (July 27, 2019) – Tagmarshal, the golf course intelligence and pace-of-play management system trusted by public golf courses, private country clubs and resorts globally, has partnered with four high-profile PGA Sections – Metropolitan, Carolinas, North Florida and South Florida – to promote its offerings at tournaments and to golf clubs within each section.
The two-year partnerships will showcase Tagmarshal’s tournament track and golf intelligence systems at various section events. Tagmarshal will also provide educational support to the sections and their members on industry leading on-course optimization and golfer experience best practice and data learnings via workshops and webinars.
At the forefront when the PGA of America was founded in 1916, the Metropolitan Section incorporates those golf clubs and members in the New York City area. Metropolitan clubs implementing Tagmarshal’s Course and Pace of Play optimizer system include Westchester Country Club and Quaker Ridge.
The Carolinas Section is one of the largest PGA sections, with more than 2,000 professional members. The geographic territory engulfs North and South Carolina as well as a small portion of southern Virginia. Among those golf facilities in the Carolinas using Tagmarshal: The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Resort, Pinehurst Resort, TPC Myrtle Beach and Callawassie Island.
Formed in 1979, the North Florida PGA Section is the fourth largest section of the PGA of America, and is comprised of approximately 1,250 PGA members. The South Florida PGA Section is the third largest section of PGA professionals, with 1,830 members and apprentices employed at 475 facilities. Calusa Pines, Forest Glen Country Club, Frenchman’s Reserve and Naples Lakes are among those in Florida implementing Tagmarshal.
“We are elated about partnering with four prolific PGA of America sections, as this will enable us to showcase to their golf clubs how to identify operational efficiencies and successfully enhance the player experience,” says Tom Cox, Vice President of Sales for Tagmarshal. “This partnership will allow us to adopt our tournament track systems at many of the sections’ major events.”
Tagmarshal works with individual public, private and resort course operators across nine countries to identify operational efficiencies and grow their business from within. Benefits extend beyond quicker play and more enjoyable rounds; heat mapping for course maintenance and data collection make this technology more than a one-dimensional commodity.
Among those trusting Tagmarshal include Carnoustie (site of the 2018 Open Championship), Pinehurst Resort & Country Club (2019 U.S Amateur Championship), The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort (2021 PGA Championship), Whistling Straits (2020 Ryder Cup), Erin Hills (2017 U.S. Open), East Lake (2019 TOUR Championship), Valhalla (2014 PGA Championship) and other major championship venues.
Tagmarshal is a golf course intelligence and pace-of-play management solution that turns pace into an asset. The system uses small “tags” clipped onto golf bags, installed on carts or offered on handheld devices, which transmit geo-location data. Industry-leading algorithms identify risk groups with accurate, objective support to alleviate pace challenges before they arise.
Public, private and resort courses using Tagmarshal realize substantial returns on investments through improved on-course experiences achieved with less staff as well as increases in daily rounds. Impactful and easy-to-use data analytics, weather data integration and geo-fencing complete the offering.
