Following some great feedback and suggestions, we recently made some nice additions to Pace of Play tracking in the CPS StarterHut Tee Sheet.
Pace of Play is an option you can enable and the features below are available in the latest version (v3.72) of the tee sheet.
Notice the 9:42 am tee time circled below and the Green, Yellow and Red colors in the “Tee” box just to the right of the starting time.
So, what does it do?
Pace of Play allows the user* (Starter, Cashier, etc) to mark a given tee time group as follows:
Tee’d Off: Actual time the group tee’d off (i.e. 9:51 am)
Made the 9-hole Turn: elapsed time from the Tee’d Off time until the Turn time (i.e.. 2:20 for 2hrs, 20min).
Finished the round: elapsed time from Tee’d Off time until the Finish time (i.e.. 4:53 for 4hrs, 52min).
*Tip: the Tee’d Off, Turn Time and Finish Time can be set from the CPS StarterHut TeeSheet by right clicking on the group (after they have paid). You can also use the CPS Mobile StarterHut on a mobile device for the starter or marshal to track this activity in real time on the course.
For a quick reference using a customizable color coding, you can set parameters that will color-code each action (Tee’d Off, Turn, Finish) in the Tee Box on the TeeSheet based on your planned schedule.
For example, the following is the default setting:
If On-Time up to 10 minutes late, Green
If running 10 to 20 minutes late, Yellow
If running more than 20 minutes late, Red
Of course, you can modify the times and/or colors to suit your needs. To modify the default settings, go to Admin – Settings – Color Coded Tee Time. Select the course you want to define the settings for the given course and Add, Edit and Delete as needed.
Let’s zoom in on that 9:42 AM tee time.
You can see that the group’s scheduled time was 9:42 AM. They actually Tee’d Off at 9:51 and the indicator at the top and to the right of the Tee’d Off time is green as it was within the 10 minutes “Green” threshold.
The Turn Time (the middle Yellow color) indicates that the Turn Time (actual time not shown as this group has already finished) was more than 10 minutes late but less than 20 minutes late making the turn.
At the bottom is the Finish Time. The group took 4 hours and 53 minutes to play the round (4:53). Because they were more than 20 minutes late of the expected time, the indicator is colored Red. (note, until the Finish Time is set, the elapsed Turn time would show up).
This gives the operator a quick view at a glance for pace of play information to better manage the course.
In addition to these new indicators, the average turn and finish times along with a graph of the day are presented at the bottom of the screen in the “Pace of Play” tab.
To turn on Pace or Play: Go to Admin, Settings, Facility Options. Check “Use Pace of Play”, Click Save.
FYI: The Mobile Starter app out on the first tee or in the marshal's cart allows the user to set the Tee'd Off, Turn and Finish times.
