A ny golfer who has played in a charity scramble or a com- pany outing knows the feeling of shooting a score low enough to think you've got the first-place trophy in the bag, only to return to the clubhouse and find that the foursome from accounting came in one stroke better than your team, and that eagle putt on the final hole meant a lot more than you thought it did. Thanks to some new tech- nology available at Indian Wells Golf Resort, you won't ever have to experience that agony again. Indian Wells is now offering live scoring for all groups of 12 or more play- ers, with real-time scores dis- played on each golf cart's GPS screen, a mobile phone app and televisions in the club- house. Players enter their scores either in the cart or on the app, and while scorecards must still be kept and verified by the golf shop staff, the en- tire field has a better idea of how they're faring from the first hole to the last. "It's our job to ensure that our product is always at the top of the class," said Michael Tebbetts, the Director of Sales and Marketing at Indian Wells Golf Resort. "When new tech- nology becomes available that makes playing here a better experience for our guests, and makes it easier for our team to deliver that, we're going to take a hard look at it. When we found this product Golf Genius, it was a no-brainer for us." Another addition to the Group Golf experience is on- line payments. Each group or event is assigned a dedicated website where individual players can pay as they regis- ter, eliminating the need for the tournament organizer to pay up front and collect funds from each player. In addition to tournament fees, players can pay for food and beverage, rental clubs and more. GREAT NEWS FOR GROUPS Indian Wells is now offering live scoring and online payments BIG0TIME BENEFITS!
