MyGolfPlanet has developing, in cooperation with A1-Erent, a brand new concept around the exploitation of golfbuggyes. Ohe concept is more a less based on the dCreen Wheele car solution what is very successfully running inthe Netherlands. It is a simple rent a car solution. Cars are placed all over the city and subscribers can make areservation by internet and phone. This reservation start with a half hour usage.The MyGolfBuggy concept is born because in Europe the demand for buggies is growing but a lot of coursesdonet have the resources or the right feeling to invest in buggies. Otherwise European golfers like to walk incontrast with e.g. US golfers. MyGolfBuggy is a concept that will be exploited by A1-Erent. One or more buggiescan be placed on the golf course. Golfers can subscript for this services on the MyGolfPlanet website, the placewhere reservation can be made per half hour usage.MyGolfPlanet also makes it possible that golfers buys or rent the buggy themselves for own use, with a rentalout earn back within the MyGolfBuggy system. With the golf course (and buggy owner) a revenue share will beagreed also because the course have to look after basic maintenance and garage. Basic costs for e.g. electricitywill be paid by A1-Erent. Ohe buggy will be dlight minte and in a very descend way decorated with MyColfPlanet A1-Erent and MyColfBuggy logoes and contact information. On all buggies a MyColfPlanet 7 inch CPS device will beinstalled, usage for an extra fee of € 3,95.By a reservation on the MyGolfPlanet site the golfer get a PIN code that will be needed to start the buggy; atrack and trace device will look after time and location control (the buggy stops outside the course).A subscription fee is needed per year/season and a half hour of golf will costs € 3,95 per ½ hour for the first 2,5hour (9-holes) and € 1,95 per ½ hour for the second 2,5 hour (18-holes). This leads to attractive pricing: for a 9-holes round, 2,5 hour it means € 19,75; a 18-holes 5 hour round € 29,50. During tournaments special arrangementscan be made for temporal extra buggies.Reservation application is based on the ISB tee-time booking environment and linked, in case a golfer makes atee-time booking on a course with MyGolfBuggy the availabilities will be presented.
