Golf Course Technology Reviews, a leading online resource for comprehensive and independent reviews of golf course technology, has recently published an article titled “To Scratch or Not to Scratch: The Question for the Golf Industry.” The article addresses the practice of scraping tee times, a method used by various companies to collect data on golf course availability and pricing.

The article explores the potential implications of scrapping, including market distortion, unfair competitive advantages and its impact on market dynamics. It highlights issues such as information asymmetry, price manipulation, barriers to entry, resource strain on target locations, and market sensitivity and volatility.

To address these concerns, the article proposes the creation of a Fair Scratching Agreement in the golf industry. This would help improve fairness and transparency in the way different companies collect and use data.
