The Big-Time Advantages of Local Synergies Between Golf Courses – Clustering (Ep.33)

The advantages for golfers when multiple golf courses team up is obvious. We get more holes to play golf on for our money. What's really cool is that when one course is closed for business because of a tournament or course maintenance procedure, we've got other options. Not only that, golf is just more fun when you have more variety...otherwise it's just too easy right?

His solution is one that plays on a beautiful blend of technology and white glove personalized customer service.
