How to RSVP with a "maybe"
We received a suggestion a while back that there should be a "maybe" option to RSVP for a tee time. After careful consideration we have decided that the best way to do this is to RSVP "no" and leave a comment as to why your RSVP may change to yes. That leaves the slot open for someone else to sign up, and also demonstrates your intention to the organizer for planning additional tee times.
We feel it would be confusing if we had added a separate status of "maybe". For example, would it hold a place for the tee time, and possibly lock someone else out? That wouldn't really be fair to the other golfers who know they can play. Technically you could register yes and hold the spot, but remember you are among friends, and that would not reflect well on you if you simply don't show up or continually cancel at the last minute.
We are making a concerted effort to keep TeeTimeHelper simple and easy to use. If you have any suggestions you may comment on this post or send us a private message using our contact form.
