Leading Management Company Leverages Promotion by Non-Profits

Alpharetta, Ga. (August 22, 2017) - American Golf Corporation (AGC)—manager of premier private, resort and daily fee courses in the United States—has chosen OneSpareTeeTime to handle all donation requests received from charities throughout the country.

By managing all charitable requests to AGC’s 85 properties, OneSpareTeeTime will maximize benefits to courses with slow periods on their tee sheets and to charities that hold fundraising events. OneSpareTeeTime is a free online platform that completely streamlines charitable requests. Along with maintaining and tracking an inventory bank of available golf certificates (twosomes or foursomes) OneSpareTeeTime automatically provides high quality course promotional materials for charities to use at their fundraisers.

“We’ve heard from dozens of course managers that they are overwhelmed with requests from non-profit organizations,” explains Mike Last, founder of Geronimo Solutions, the company behind the OneSpareTeeTime platform. “Our solution leaves clubs in full control, saves a lot of time, promotes their courses, and even increases their revenue, all while helping great causes. It’s a win-win opportunity that more and more courses and non-profits are embracing with enthusiasm.”

Through OneSpareTeeTime each AGC course will post its available inventory for charitable organizations to use.  Private courses within AGC’s portfolio may elect to dedicate a fixed number of “member for a day” passes to be promoted at charitable events.  What’s more, the OneSpareTeeTime platform allows senior management to see activity across their entire portfolio of courses.

“This new platform will save our managers time and administrative work, while doing a great job of promoting our courses,” says Jeff Whitt, Senior Vice President of American Golf Corporation.

Clubs, courses, resorts, and golf-management companies like American Golf spend hours fielding requests from charitable organizations looking for donations of tee times, trips, and other assets. While golf facilities frequently contribute, the time and energy necessary to manage these requests keeps growing. Furthermore, when facilities try to handle charitable contributions individually, both the charity and the course lose economic efficiencies and effectiveness.
