Gulf Shores Golf Association Launches New Tee Time Reservation System
Destination Partners Introduce Booking through Facebook and Mobile Devices
Gulf Shores Golf Association - a collection of nine popular, acclaimed courses located within 45 minutes of each other on Alabama's Gulf Coast - has introduced a new Facebook tee time booking app.
The app can be found at the Golf Gulf Shores Facebook page and allows golfers to select tee dates, times and price range. Tee times can also be made on the Golf Gulf Shores website, which features an updated, easily accessible interface, and on the mobile website version at m.golf.gulfshores.com, which features clickable sections for Play, Stay, Dine, Maps, Custom Quote and E-newsletter Signup.
In addition, the nine destination partner courses now offer a mobile-enabled booking system from their individual websites.
"With spring season less than a month away, we're excited to make it easier for guests to book tee times," said Gulf Shores Golf Association Executive Director Duncan Millar. "Our user-friendly website (www.golfgulfshores.com) also quickly produces customized quotes based on a group's preference in accommodations, rounds and access to the many after-golf events and activities in the area."
