UnderPar Featured Partner
The Verrado Golf Club partnered with the Arizona Golf Association (AGA) to leverage UnderPar’s Pricelooper Member Benefit Program email solution to reach golf association members and entice them to book off-season single play vouchers.
The single play voucher offers were available for redemption during the off-season, to help fill the tee sheets in a historically quiet time of year. Increasing the traffic during this slower period for the club was a core emphasis. But an assumption was made early on: get golfers on property and they’ll spend money on food, drink and in the golf shop.
More than 800 rounds in just 6 weeks were sold in a period of which is historically quiet. These very same guests also dined in the course restaurants and purchased items from the golf shop further increasing the net revenue gained from this promotion. Not only did they fill the sheets, the reach extended to golfers across the United States and Canada.
“If I were to describe UnderPar in just one word, it would be “Easy …. Uncomplicated, smooth, straightforward, cinch, simple.” Okay, got a little carried away, but UnderPar is just that!! It’s economics 101, when demand is low one needs to turn to UnderPar. We sold 800 rounds in just 6 weeks in a period of which is historically quiet! These very same players also ate in our restaurants and purchased items in the golf shop. We will be turning to UnderPar again [to run another promotion] here shortly!”

“UnderPar has been a partner of CrossCreek Golf Club for all 5 years I have been General Manager. I have always been impressed with the professionalism shown by their staff. The customer service is first class and their attention to detail for me as an operator was very helpful. When the UnderPar model was used by CrossCreek, goals for revenue and number of guests were met every time. I highly recommend UnderPar as a partner for golf courses everywhere.”

“Pine Needles/Mid Pines were the first properties to participate in the Carolinas Member Benefit Program three years ago. In three years, we’ve seen well into six-figures in rounds sold. Greg Knuth and the CGA worked with us to focus the offer into a November-to-March window when the new business would have the best impact on our tee sheets. We know that this particular audience is core, avid golfers from North and South Carolina that are good to have on property, and we plan on staging the promo yearly.”

“The Arizona Golf Association and the Arizona Women’s Golf Association connected us with UnderPar who built our offer so that it was featured to the UnderPar, AGA, and AWGA member databases. With zero upfront costs, UnderPar produced an offer that made sense for our needs and brought in not just a large amount of golfers, but a large amount of the RIGHT type, and during the summer months where we can always use more of the right player on property. We are very happy with the outcome of our first offer and look forward to working with all three organizations in the future!”
