GIC Managing Director Mike Orloff said he was thrilled to partnering up with Tagmarshal, and to help grow their presence and client base in Australasia.
“My personal background in golf operations and specifically pace of play management goes back a few decades, and it’s a critical area to get right in creating a great service experience at any golf facility,” Orloff said.
“I was also fortunate to be mentored by Bill Yates (The guru of pace of play) over a three-year period, working closely with him on clubs here in Australia to improve their pace of play.” Tagmarshal also worked closely with Bill, who acted as a mentor to the team and was engaged in the planning, before he unfortunately passed away in June 2018.
Tagmarshal works with individual public, private and resort course operators across nine countries to identify operational efficiencies and grow their business from within.
The benefits of Tagmarshal’s solutions extend beyond quicker pace of play and more enjoyable rounds. Heat mapping for course maintenance and data collection make this technology more than a one-dimensional commodity, providing operators with tools and data to provide management oversight and make data driven decisions.
