Hi. How can we help?

Creating large event golf reservations

Please follow the following process to create and manage society bookings.

Initial setup and quote

  • In Lightspeed Golf's tee sheet, ensure the time is available and blocked off on the day the organizer is looking to book.

  • In Lightspeed Retail, build a quote for the Society from the Sales Screen with the corresponding items requested:

  • Click on ''Save as Quote'' to save the quote.

  • You will be asked to add a customer to the quote if that was not done already in the sales screen. 

  • Make sure you add the corresponding Society customer or create the customer on Lightspeed Golf if the customer was not created previously.

It is recommended that all your customers originate from Golf. Adding them under the Customers tab on your navigation bar on the tee sheet will automatically create a corresponding customer account on Retail as well as Restaurant.

Sending the quote to the organizer

  • Once the quote is saved, you can email the quote straight from the sales screen or you can search through your existing quotes by going into ''Customers'' from the navigation bar and selecting ''Quotes'':

  • You can bring up a quote at any moment, edit and send the quote by email to the organizer and settle the quote:

Blocking the tee sheet

  • In Lightspeed Golf's tee sheet, create a new tournament under ''Events'' and click on "+" - ''Tournament''.

  • Name the tournament, select a date and schedule (number of tee times to accommodate the size of the tournament), and describe the event.

  • Tee times: Choose between a standard, crossover, shotgun, or custom start.

  • Select the interval between each tee time.

  • You can assign the corresponding event or leave it blank as green fees have already been recorded in your quote.

  • Do NOT enable Online Booking if you don't want players to book online into this Society event.

  • The Society Event will appear on the tee sheet and in the calendar view of the events module:

Adding a deposit to a Society account

  • To add a deposit to a society account, in Lightspeed Retail, simply create a new sale, add the customer to the sale and click add deposit under their name.
    In the example, we are adding $100 to the account with a credit card tender method.

Taking payment

  • When you are ready to settle the quote (on the day off, to check in the golfers), simply reopen the quote and settle the quote:

  • You can always add the rounds on the tee sheet and mark them in as arrived for stats purposes.
