Drive Shack Launches Single-Bay Online Reservation Platform
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Drive Shack Inc. (NYSE: DS), a leading owner and operator of golf-related leisure and entertainment businesses, has announced the launch of its single-bay online reservation system across all four of its Drive Shack locations. The online booking platform allows groups of 6 guests or less to make single-bay reservations up to 7 days in advance.
“We are extremely pleased with the early response we’ve seen from the recent launch of our single-bay, online reservation platform,” said President and Chief Executive Officer, Hana Khouri. “Our venues continue to experience strong demand during peak hours and with our new online reservations system, we can more effectively provide convenience and predictability for our guests and also deliver a quick and seamless check-in experience upon arrival.”
Khouri continued, “I am proud of our teams who remained diligent over the past few weeks to ensure a timely, seamless and successful implementation of our new reservation system. The new platform will allow us to drive incremental visitors to our venues, increase traffic during off-peak times and enhance the predictability of our labor needs. The launch of our online booking platform serves as a critical milestone as we continue to evolve our offerings and operations to best serve and engage our guests in this new environment.”
Drive Shack’s new reservation platform will allow guests to book directly from its website at www.driveshack.com. To reserve a bay, guests will select the venue location, number of guests, date and duration of play. There will be a limited number of reservations available per hour, with walk-in seating continuing to be offered subject to wait times.
Drive Shack’s spacious venues feature three levels of climate-controlled, open-air, suite-style bays. Drive Shack provides complimentary Taylor Made clubs, which are sanitized after every group, as well as golf bag stands for guests who opt to bring their own clubs. Additional safety protocols include social distancing markers in common areas and capacity limits of six people per bay.
Reservations must be paid for at the time of booking. Modification and cancellation policies and fees vary by venue. Visit DriveShack.com for additional details, pricing options and requirements.
