What do you think....will there ever be a golf course which charges golfers based on the hours they spent on the golf course? So instead of paying a flat green fee......they charge you say $x per hour...(cap at 4.5hours)....after that....STOP...no playing liao..don care if you finish only 2 hole ..

Advantage: Speed up play ...indirectly means spending more time with family
Disadvantage: For players macam Ben Crane type...chiak lak...maybe neber finish 18hole

Possible boh?

i think the time-based system isnt possible la..
unless the golf course is empty, and only ONE flight is playing.

What if players take their own sweet time? Each play 4 balls at a hole. And jam up your course. how?

So the first flight slow... only finish 2 holes in 4.5hrs.. the rest of the ppl don't get to tee off? and your business suffers because you only get a few flights out a day? albino

Can't remember where, but I think there was a muni course I played that had a clock/timer on everyhole and stated the time (in minutes) that you should have completed the hole, if not pick up pace or skip a hole or dunno what.. can't remember exactly how it was supposed to work..

Must clear each hole within a time stipulated, if not lose pay the flight behind xxxx $$$ for every hole delayed beyond a certain timing (80% to be paid to the flight behind and 10% to the 2nd flight behind, with 10% to be paid to the club).

Timing tracked and calculated by a computer based on the ID chip that every golfer have to carry tracked by GPS.

Computer will remind golfers through speakers on their buggy to speed up or warn about jams up front

This way, whatever happens, the clubs makes more money Very Happy

too many flaws in the BM that makes it no viable, the average golfer which is belongs to the higher demographic won't patronise. Unless you are aiming to be niche and just aim for the low hc golfers for speed golf.
