Golf clubs (by which we mean the locations, not the kit) are enormous expanses of land. They cover huge distances, hire sizeable numbers of people and are reasonably dense environments to manage.
Additionally to a necessity of expedient comms among various layers of management, universal health and safety concerns and the commitment required to keep an excellent course looking immaculate, walkie talkies are fundamental to golf courses for keeping workers connected with each other. Additionally they help to provide security over large spaces and considerably more besides. Let us go into all this in a tad more detail, shall we?
Two-way radios are easy to utilize, cheap and supremely reliable. A mobile phone (or similar device) simply would not be anywhere near as reliable inside the same circumstances, particularly when one considers that most of a golf course is in the open air and therefore subject to climate, atmospheric conditions and other intangibles.
Two way radios are rugged devices, made for use on a myriad of territory. If the tasks required are mostly outside, it makes sense to use a similar tech that soldiers use within the desert or the police use in the city, doesn’t it?
Radios provide a quick and useful response to emergencies of any type. Instantaneous communication is a fundamental tool when it comes to reporting on the mishap and insuring that help arrives A.S.A.P. Two way radios also allow staff to report on the condition of the green, relaying player feedback on to management, ensuring a swift and expert response to any issues. This, in turn, can assist to cultivate customer loyalty, providing a great club with legions of loyal people who will appeal to other customers and thus give the club with steady business.
But that is not all a walkie-talkie is good for at a golf course. Usually, golf clubs need an increased amount of management ability plus the key to good management is excellent communication. Two way radios help to make sure that the on-course staff are equipped for the player’s individual needs. Two way radios help other amenities of the club (stores, eating places, toilets etc) to run easily and still offer high values and quality service.
Without two way radios, a golf club would need several tiers of management, if only to handle all of the travel between spaces. The management of a good course would represent a logistical nightmare. A long, relaxed round of golf (loved by everyone from Larry David to Alice Cooper) could instead symbolize a stress-filled, obstruction-riddled game that many would surrender on before they ever even teed off.
