Benefits of GPS Tracking for Golf Course Managers

16 May 2018

GPS tracking is changing how the world works in many ways. While many people understand the benefits GPS tracking has to offer trucking fleets that travel across the country and on various routes through major cities, what you may not realize is that it can help busy golf course managers provide better service to their patrons and track their equipment more effortlessly.

These are just a few ways GPS tracking can help you manage your golf course more efficiently.

Map and Track Areas in Need of Mowing

Mowing and lawn care are continuous tasks on any busy golf course. The cut and height of the grass can make a world of difference in the way a round of golf plays out. It can even alter the challenge of the course by making greens run faster or slowing them down considerably.

GPS mapping allows you to instruct your mowers to set the blades of your mowers for certain heights in various locations to increase the difficulty for major events or tournaments or even to reduce the difficulty when sponsoring youth events or recreational events on your course.

It even allows you to map out the precise locations when blades need to be raised or lowered or the direction of the mowers needs to be adjusted.

Create Geofences that Reduce Theft of Golf Carts

Golf cart theft can be a problem for golf course managers and owners. Creating a geofence through GPS tracking notifies you instantly if one of your cards leaves the predefined boundaries for your golf carts to travel.

More importantly, it offers real-time GPS tracking, so you can trace the location of the cart and notify law enforcement of its location. This aids in the swift recovery of your carts and the prosecution of thieves who took them out for a joy ride. Some systems are set up so that you can remotely disable carts that travel outside those boundaries as well.

Allows You to Control the Pace of Play

Some days things are going swell and everyone is moving along at an appropriate pace. Other days, log jams develop on more difficult holes. GPS tracking for golf carts allows you to identify where slowdowns may be occurring, so you can exercise some control on the next starting times. This can help to reduce frustration on the greens, unnecessary rushing, and allows everyone to have a more favorable experience.

As a busy golf course manage you have many irons (pun intended) in the fire at any given time. GPS tracking offers you greater control over some of those irons while reducing the burdens of others.
