Why do golf courses hate Golf Now?
...and if so, why do they use the site? I say this because I typically rotate through 3-4 courses on a regular basis. If I made the reservation on Golfnow, it seems like the guy at the counter always acts put off or rolls his eyes.

Because they want you to pay more

They pay a royalty to Golf Now for every round booked through the site, plus they are at a discount to their rack rates.

The flip side is they prob wouldn’t sell some of those tee times if they weren’t on Golf Now.

I’ll sometimes call the course and ask if they want to offer me the same rate and book directly. Some take me up on it, some don’t.

I have once or twice probably 5 or so years ago. I would assume it's because they saw an early to mid 20s guy at a high use muni and assumed I would suck and have no etipuette.

Thats really rare, though, I feel like, and I've even had the shop to tell me to book on GN on a handful of occasions as opposed through them directly.

I do that a lot also. It's a win/win for me and the course. I don't have to pay the booking fee and the course doesn't have to give Golf Now a cut.

I've had it happen a couple of local courses here in South Georgia. Almost like they are above saving money. If they offer it on GN I try to take advantage of it, why not right?


In the end, who cares.

There’s times they pay more on golf now. Plus a few. It’s pretty funny that instead of people calling a shop they would rather book online without knowing how much they save.

Not sure if it is still the case, but I was told that the hot deals go directly to Golf Now and the club doesn't get a cut on those rounds.
