Benefits of Two-Way Radios for Golf

Benefits of Two-Way Radios for Golf

Posted on: May 6, 2022 By: Kelcom Admin

Advantages Over Other Communication Devices

Customer satisfaction is of utmost importance for golf courses.

However, everyone from course superintendents to groundskeepers, golf operations and banquet staff, at a golf course is spread out over a large area.

How do you keep everyone on your team connected?

Communicating via mobile phones is costly because of recurring monthly fees.

There may also be problems with cellphone coverage and reception in remote areas.

Cellphones are also consumer grade devices not designed for outdoor harsh weather working conditions.

They are limiting because you can only talk to one person at a time.

There is no group communications as you must constantly individually dial all staff.
