Running a golf society: Managing Payments for games
Posted by: Darren Ramowski on Tue 03 Mar 2009
For those tasked with organising golf days or golf societies, one of the most difficult tasks can be handling payments for events. Here are some helpful links and tips for you to use.
Managing and taking payments for events
Unfortunately golfshake.com does not have any plans to provide a mechanism for taking online transaction for those arranging games and societies but there are 2 great services available to use.
Paypal is an online global payment processing website owned by ebay which allows people to request and pay for items and events online using their secure processing system and via email.
Typically Paypal will charge a processing fee for the transaction of +3.4% + 0.20p
A £40 green fee would work out at around £1.80 on top of the £40 to process the transaction.
I've heard from a few members how they always try and limit deposit with the courses to £50 per event but some courses insist on atleast £10 per person. This can be quite tricky to organise especially if you have 36 people attending. On of the best suggestions I heard for those running a society is to take an upfront season fee that can then be used as the deposit pot but allowing a cheaper final event.
charge a £10 subscription fee to each member on the first event to cover the deposits for the year. We then reduce the cost of the final event by £10 to refund the money to the members
