OCEAN CITY, Md. — A next-generation golf passbook that allows players to redeem deals on their smartphones is barreling out of winter with nearly 300 deals at 73 golf clubs and facilities across the Tri-State region.
Launched last summer, the Digital Golf Pass offers discounts on weekday and weekend green fees, free green fees, rounds for the price of a cart, and specials for foursomes, seniors and driving-range usage.
The pass costs $49.95.
“We didn’t anticipate the pass would be as viable as it is right now,” said DGP Founder and PGA Professional Damon Klepczynski. “With temperatures trending above normal all across the Tri-State, the DGP is off to a blazing start from Pittsburgh to Youngstown to Erie.”
Digital Golf Pass (DGP) is an alternative to paper passbooks that have long proved popular but remain limited in scope. However new the DGP, its pedigree is as seasoned as the Tee Time Golf Pass, which has been crafting deals for golfers for 20 years and counting.
Tee Time, the nation’s largest paper passbook purveyor, is a key investor in DGP. Indeed, all of the deals in Tee Time’s paper passbook are moving onto the new platform, with more courses and deals loading daily.
DGP debuted last summer in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, West Virginia, Louisiana and Mississippi. In this inaugural year, thousands of golfers signed up to redeem deals that expired Dec. 31.
DGP is currently building additional networks in North and South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee and Texas.
