Becoming A Links Card Partner Course
The Slippery Slopes of Filling tee-times
Don't Fall For these
Enter The Links Card
A low-cost marketing platform for your course to reach more golfers
Why Our Partner Courses Love Us
Plain and simple:
We create a win-win situation for our courses and members.
You have unfilled tee-times, we have a database of thousands of members who have the flexibility to help fill those tee-times in the last 24 hours.
Plus, we don’t put extreme restrictions on our partner courses, so you’re able to have the flexibility on our platform to meet your needs, not ours.
And that’s why we’ve had some partner courses with us since the mid 1990s
We utilize an age old classic that’s powerful and effective, but only when used strategically and correctly –
a restricted discount.
By putting restrictions on your Links Card rates, you’re ensuring we stay out of the way of your highest grossing golfers and we’re only used when your tee-time inventory is at the highest risk of being under utilized. The $150 billion hospitality industry uses this method to fill vacant rooms with amazing success. Likewise, they use outside services like ours to avoid discounting their normal, retail rates to the public.
*This is merely a suggestion based on expected value. Example: If you have a 30% chance of winning $1000 in a lottery and I offered you $200 to not play, you'd turn it down as it's below the expected value ($1000*.30=$300). If I offered you $500 to not play, you'd take the $500 as it's higher than the expected value.
Even if you were running at 110% capacity, there are still benefits to joining The Links Card as a partner course. It's as simple as we're there if you need it and not in your way if you don't.
We're committed to improving our services for courses, so, as in any good partnership, we're always open to feedback and suggestions so your course can count on us to really help drive additional sales.
Additionally, we sometimes flip the roles and bring in vendors who want to work want to offer special rates to courses (for example, we're researching vendors for drone footage).
We are a discount membership program for golfers. We charge a membership fee to the consumer to access discounts at our partner courses. This is how we know our members are in your target market so we're not wasting your time.
