Davie Golf Club Introduces a New Way to Play
Time-constrained golfers can now pay by the hole
Davie Golf Club is excited to introduce a new way to play the great game of golf – Quick.golf. Now, golfers can play and pay for just the number of holes they play, using the Quick.golf app.
“The number one complaint of golfers is they don’t have time to play as much golf as they’d like,” said Davie Golf General Manager, Danny Boswell. “We want golfers to play when they can, as much as they can, even if it is not 18 or even 9 holes. The Quick.golf web app tells golfers when we have Quick.golf available, and all they have to do is show up and play a few holes. They are charged only for the holes they play, all done through the app just like Uber or Lyft. It is very cool and convenient.”
Go to http://www.daviegolf.net/course/quick-golf-a-new-way-to-play to learn more and register – it is free. When opened, the Quick.golf app will display whether Quick.golf is open for play right now. Check in at the golf shop, show them the web app on your smartphone, and go out and play as many holes as you can, or want.
“We’ll make Quick.golf available at different times, depending on our regular tee time patterns,” Boswell continued. “It could be the last couple of hours of the day, or during the lunch period, or weekend twilight. The web app will tell you when you can come out and play a few holes. It’s that easy – it’s a new way to play.

About Quick.golf LLC: Quick.golf borrows from Open Table and Uber to bring a new alternative to golf courses that is easy to implement and manage. Pay-by-hole golf is not new, but using technology to promote and generate incremental revenue is. The Quick.golf web app is finding its way to golf courses not afraid to introduce a new way to play, and for golfers to pay.
