Mark Dunbar to CHAIR OF GOLF

Your Suggestion / Comment

Could you please explain to me how when booking a Saturday game of golf on the BRS the first slot was blocked for 20 minutes when I was under the impression that the slot would be released within several minutes.

Good afternoon Mark

I am sorry you have experienced problems when trying to book.

I can advise that I have checked the booking log and cannot see any reason you couldn’t book in.

The first tee time of 08:10 was booked at 17:06:44 for two people.  Then at 17:06:56 another member logged on and added just himself to the tee time.

As I am sure you are aware a message does flash up ‘Locked By Another User’ but again this should only last for a couple of minutes while a tee time is booked.

As the system should refresh within a few minutes is it possible that your device actually ‘froze’?

I can only suggest that if you have further problems you try refreshing the page by logging out and reloading the App.

Kind regards

thank you for your quick response I can assure you that for nearly 20 minutes I was refreshing and logging in and out of the BRS system but to no avail this is not the first time it has happened on the same day a later T slot was also constantly “Locked by another user”

Regards Mark



Hi Mark

I have today spoken to BRS who think the problem you experienced was that the page “froze”.  I explained that you logged out then logged back in on several occasions refreshing the page without success.

According to the chap I spoke to the only way to fix this is by “clearing the browser cache”.   Obviously I do not know if you were using a computer/tablet device so couldn’t comment further.

He recommended that you download the BRS Golf App from Play Store onto your phone which apparently is the easiest way to book.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards
