Two Way Radios For Golf Courses
With golf courses, staff can be spread out over a fairly large area, making communications costly
and time consuming. Two way radios allow staff to communicate instantly, saving money by increasing
efficiency and allowing you to provide better service to players. Radios (or walkie talkies) can
provide benefit for many different segments of golf course staff, including: grounds keepers, wait
staff, irrigation specialists, course managers, caddies, teachers, pro shop staff, restaurant
managers, beverage cart operaters, maintenance staff, custodians, and more.
With golf courses, exactly which radio to choose is not as straightforward as with some other
types of businesses. Radios using UHF frequencies are the most popular, as they work well both
indoors and out. However, radios using VHF frequencies will provide better range if you are using
the radios in a fairly open area and only outdoors. Very large golf courses will require
powerful 4 watt radios
or even repeaters in order to get communications throughout the entire area, while
standard two watt radios
are sufficient for most.
