Launched in 2015 as a mobile alternative to paper passbooks, Digital Golf Pass (DGP)
enables golfers to redeem discounted tee times, merchandise, lessons and range deals at reduced pricing via their smartphones, tablets and PC’s. Debuted last summer in nine states, including Michigan, Ohio, New York and New Jersey, DGP has added six additional states this year, with another dozen in the pipeline. At present, 3,200 deals are available at 1,100 golf clubs.
DGP has partnered with Tee Times Golf Pass, the nation’s largest paper passbook purveyor, which is moving its deals onto the new digital platform. “Golfers love DGP because it saves them money, in a variety of ways, every time they play,” said Damon Klepcyznski, a partner in Medal Play Management, creators of DGP. Course operators endorse DGP because they can load deals onto the DGP platform at no cost while selectively pricing their own offers and discounts.
