Reviewing the Technology of Golf Courses: To Scrape or Not to Scrape

Golf Industry Faces Dilemma with Scraping: What Can Be Done to Ensure Fairness and Competition?

The golf industry is facing a dilemma with scraping tee time booking engines. Scraping involves collecting data on golf course availability and pricing without permission, leading to market distortion and unfair competitive advantages. Golf Course Technology Reviews (GCTR), a top online source for unbiased reviews of golf course technology, has recently released an article titled “To Scrape or Not To Scrape, A Question for the Golf Industry.”

The article highlights the negative impacts of scraping, including information asymmetry, pricing manipulation, barriers to entry, resource strain on target sites, and market sensitivity and volatility. GCTR’s expert reviewers provide in-depth analysis and impartial opinions on a wide range of products related to golf course operations.

To address this issue, GCTR suggests establishing a Fair Scraping Agreement within the golf industry. This agreement could outline who participates in scraping activities and who does not, ultimately improving fairness within the industry. GCTR aims to help golf course operators make informed decisions regarding their technology purchases and enhance their overall golf operations experience.
