Quick Guide: What Golfing FEC’s Can Learn From Masters Fantasy

Posted by Katy Koop on 4/14/21 9:00 AM

One of the best parts of running golf FEC’s is being able to offer golf aficionados at all levels of experience the thrill of competition every time they play. From managing tee sheets to being able to offer one-of-a-kind events, at Clubspeed, we work with golfing facilities all around the world to build unforgettable gaming experiences. As big fans of the sport, we’re as excited as our FEC clients watching the Masters tournament, not only the matches, but in following the fantasy virtual space as well.  As a part of this past Masters tournament, Masters released Masters Fantasy, much like fantasy football, which was a free-to-play virtual experience that allowed users to casually compete against friends, family, and the world to make a winning Masters roster. Users earned and lost points based on how well their chosen players performed, with some of the top players of this virtual experience winning exclusive, branded prizes.

5 Reasons to Prioritize Order Ahead

Posted by Katy Koop on 4/5/21 9:00 AM

Now more than ever before, people are ordering ahead grocery and meals at unprecedented levels. Even as more people get vaccinated and COVID-19 restrictions lessen, people will likely still gravitate towards the convenience of ordering all manner of things online, including food and beverage pickup. In Shopify’s study on some of the new trends in 2020, 52% of buyers reported that they’ve shifted more of their spending online during the pandemic. Part of that increase has been in online pickup for takeout or delivery, which is likely to continue. According to a study conducted by US Foods, the average person uses 2 delivery apps and uses them 3x a month, spending an average of $8.50. For vendors all around the country, whether a standalone restaurant or part of a Family Entertainment Center, those online orders add up. As more FEC’s open back up, it’s a good idea to consider adding the ability to order ahead food on the website or in the app to take advantage of the trend.
