“The system will result in a quicker golfer check-in process at our Starter Station as well as a more efficient point-of -sale experience in our Clubhouse,” said Hayduck. “In addition, the system will assist the course in data collection and provide the ability to email golfers special offers and promotions to enhance their experience.”

The course at the Downers Grove Golf Club is now open for the 2019 season (weather permitting). On chilly or raining spring days, golfers can hit a few balls under the new heated driving range shelter. Buckets of balls can be purchased at the range shelter for as little as $6.
