Golf Outing RSVP System

Golf Tee Time RSVP System the Easy Way

Have you ever wanted to organize a golf outing without all the usual hassles? You can use TeeTimeHelper.com as your golf RSVP system for finding out who can play and who is unavailable. By filling out the golf event form you can immediately e-mail your golfers to find get RSVP's back and assign tee times.

If there are more golfers than tee times the golfer can add themselves to a waiting list in case someone cancels. In that case the original golfer is removed from the tee time and the first person on the waiting list is moved into that position. TeeTimeHelper sends e-mail to the person who cancelled as well as the person who is off the waiting list. The event organizer also gets an e-mail in this case so they are always in the loop for what is going on with the event.

Other golfers are not notified via e-mail, but when they check the event status page they will see the latest version of the event.

Having TeeTimeHelper.com handle the RSVP's is a great way for you to get organized for your golf event. TeeTimeHelper is a free service.

Specify Number of Golfers for each Tee Time

Customize your Event Limiting the Number of Golfers per Tee Time

We received a feature request from a user relating to the number of golfers per tee time. In the past it was fixed at four golfers, the standard number most courses allow. But some courses allow 5-somes, which was incompatible with the limits of TeeTimeHelper.com.

So we went back to the drawing board and added this as an option in the golf event signup page. But why stop there? Instead of allowing only 4 balls or 5 balls we added the option to allow 2-somes and 3-somes. So you could change the maximum number of golfers however you see fit.

In an effort to go the extra mile we also made this option customizable so even after you set up your event you can change the number of players per tee time. If you are reducing the maximum number of golfers per tee time and there are more than that number registered you need to free up the slots by  move golfers to another tee time or change their RSVP to "no".  If you are increasing the number of golfers per tee time you simply need to change the setting to allow future RSVPs for those tee times.

This required deeper ramifications for TeeTimeHelper.com. For example, the number of players per tee time has repercussion on the waiting list and how golfers are shifted off the waiting list onto new tee times or tee times that would suddenly allow more golfers.

Please enjoy the customizable number of golfers per tee time.

Organize Tee Times without the E-mail Clutter

TeeTimeHelper.com Reduces E-mail Clutter for Golf Outings

If you have ever tried to organize your golf friends for an outing you will know immediately that the volume of e-mail is a big problem.

For example, you send out a bunch of e-mails and everyone hits reply-all and the next thing you know your inbox is overflowing. Tack on people who change their status, some stale jokes flying around, and and all the status reports you suddenly find yourself spending more time organizing than playing golf.

One of the benefits of TeeTimeHelper.com is the reduction in irrelevant e-mails. For example, if someone RSVP's "yes" then the event organizer gets an e-mail and the golfer gets a confirmation e-mail. The others can check the "View Status" page at any time they choose to see exactly what the status of the event is.

It's smooth and efficient golf organizing at it's best. The event organizer has complete control and can override tee times and add/remove golfers. When the organizer does an action like this TeeTimeHelper informs the organizer who will be e-mailed before the action is confirmed.

For example, if the organizer adds a tee time it states that the entire group will be notified as this may impact everyone and let them know what is going on. When the golf event organizer switches a golfer's tee time an e-mail is sent to the golfer to let them know of the change. The other golfers can see the changes when the look at the status page.

TeeTimeHelper.com figures out who needs to know what information immediately for an e-mail notification, and leaves the rest of the golfers alone to not be bothered by irrelevant changes for them.

Change an Event to Include Mutiple Golfers

Send out Tee Time Invites to Multiple Golfers

Due to a suggestion from one of our users we added a feature to TeeTimeHelper.com to add multiple golfers to an event in one fell swoop. When you create and event you paste in a list of golfers e-mail addresses and the invitations are e-mailed to all of them. But previously if you wanted to add another set of golfers you would have to add them one by one which is not ideal.

So we added an "Add a bunch of Golfers" link which gives an interface just like the event creation. You can copy and paste a full list of golfers into this text area. If the golfer was previously invited that e-mail is skipped.

We think this is a great way to add an entire set of new golfers to fill an event, which is especially important when setting up a lot of tee times.

Please enjoy this new feature!

Golf RSVP System For Multiple Tee Times

Organize a Golf Event With Multiple Tee Times

TeeTimeHelper.com easily takes care of multiple tee times allowing you to add as many tee times from setup or during the event RSVP process. For example, you can setup two tee times but then if you realize more players are available you can add tee times in a snap.

In fact, almost all the settings are customizable at any time. Need to change from 4-somes to 2-somes? Not a problem. Want to change the date, or venue, it is easily handled. Everything is clear cut and TeeTimeHelper pages tell you what is going to happen if you proceed with any changes.
