It’s rare it happens at ours, just some were flurried with last nights snow. Be back on tomorrow. Just painful to be “forced” to play it somewhat as the groups ahead are. Absolutely awful watching people get their putter out and actually give it a go.
Rare at our place too but aside from working on the driver it's pointless. You can't get the ball to stop on the frozen patch of fairway being used and putting even with a larger hole (where's DelC to advocate this as a permanent feature?) is a lottery

Well they might have done previously but they haven't told me. As I mentioned, the lady in the office was clueless as she wrongly stated it was 5 days ahead. :LOL:
100% the existing members will know when the tee times "go live", all clubs announce this.

Maybe there's info on the club website in the members' section, or just try the office again tomorrow.

Ours is 7.00am every day. Fastest finger first but most people get the slots they want.
I have a feeling ours will be around that time as well. 7am Saturday to book for the following Saturday... that's quite annoying as there's zero chance I'll be awake at 7am on a Saturday.

Walking down our 2nd fairway, both me & playing partner were both looking at phones, waiting for the booking sheet to go live so we could book our tee times for next week. (Booking goes live, 9:00, 7 days in advance). We were both watching the countdown for the sheet to go live. He was using the BRS app whereas i was accessing BRS via the club's web site. PP then said "Ok, that's me done - did you get yours?" At which point my system was still showing 1min 50seconds to go before the booking opened ?? Grr...

Can't believe they didn't pick a time when it would be dark, imagine encouraging phones on the course 😉😉😂
Am wondering if the app picks up the phone date & time and whether can be manipulated. Probably not, they probably just want more people to load the app.

Same for everyone though. If you want to book, you need an alarm. That's the way it is at my club too. By 7.02, all the times are gone.

9:00 does seem a bit bizarre but it is what it is . Personally I'd have plumped for an early to mid evening time to go live.
We've not had the system very long but I reckon most of us have just about acquired the knack of making a booking without breaking step ...
