(CLARK, N.J.) – Tagmarshal – the golf course intelligence and pace-of-play system used by golf courses, country clubs and resorts globally – has been unveiled at Hyatt Hills Golf Complex, which features a scenic nine-hole golf course offering a mix of pars, lengths and doglegs.
The public 3,350-yard facility, managed by Billy Casper Golf, boasts a beautiful landscape and is a popular destination providing fun challenges for golfers of all experience levels. The challenging 500-yard par-5 No. 2 beckons players to avoid a large bunker positioned on the right if they are to reach the well-guarded green in two shots. Holes no. 6, 7 and 8 present a stirring stretch as golfers must play around and over a large pond on the course’s homage to “Amen Corner.”
“We are always cognizant of the player experience and enabling a golf course management system to enhance it was a no-brainer,” says Justin Dupuis, PGA, General Manager at Hyatt Hills Golf Complex. “Implementing the Tagmarshal system has allowed us to manage the course in a holistic manner as it provides us relevant data points on how the course is operating over time.”
Recent installments of the system across the country have created 70 percent of rounds being played on pace or within five minutes of target goal times. Top-ranked courses trusting Tagmarshal include Carnoustie Golf (The 2018 Open Championship), Pinehurst Resort & Country Club (2019 U.S Amateur Championship), The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort (2021 PGA Championship), Whistling Straits (2020 Ryder Cup), Erin Hills (2017 U.S. Open), East Lake (2017 TOUR Championship), Valhalla (PGA Championship 2014), and more.
“Tagmarshal empowers golf course superintendents in a variety of vital ways,” says Bodo Sieber, CEO of Tagmarshal. “The system effectively manages pace of play through a software-based solution that reduces average round times, increases efficiency and unlocks incremental profit for courses.”
Partnering with Tagmarshal positions courses as industry leaders, giving them proven operational efficiencies, while superintendents use the real-time data to better manage pin placements, wear patterns and hole set-ups.
