(KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C.) – Tagmarshal – the pace-of-play and revenue-optimizing system used globally by golf courses, country clubs and resorts – is operational at The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort, host of several major golf tournaments.
“We pride ourselves on delivering the best rounds of golf possible, and Tagmarshal’s analytical pace tracker helps achieve that,” says Stephen Youngner, Head Professional at The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, site of the 2021 and 2012 PGA Championships, 2007 Senior PGA Championship and 1991 Ryder Cup. “Leveraging data to make informed management decisions provides golfers with an even better outing at Kiawah.”
Utilized at Whistling Straits (2020 Ryder Cup), Erin Hills (2017 U.S. Open), Valhalla (2014 PGA Championship), East Lake (Tour Championship hosts), Carnoustie Golf Links (Open Championship), Ballybunion Golf Club (Irish Open) and many other premier golf destinations, Tagmarshal’s discreet data-transmitting tags track walking and cart rounds. With a wealth of intuitive, dynamic information at their fingertips, courses can routinely improve their per-hole goal times while streamlining field management accuracies and processes.
“Kiawah Island is a world-class golf resort destination,” says Bodo Sieber, CEO of Tagmarshal. “Its commitment to service is outstanding, and Tagmarshal empowers the course to set the pace without compromise to thrilling experiences.”
A recent USGA survey shows 74% of golfers believe pace-of-play is “critical” to their enjoyment of rounds. Fittingly, Tagmarshal improves average round times and enables courses to provide enhanced experiences with significant revenue opportunities. Superintendents use Tagmarshal data to better manage pin placements, wear patterns, hole setups and operational efficiencies.
