Fetched is a new mobile app that allows you to order food, drinks and items from the golf shop and have them delivered to you on course, or to pick up at the Halfway House. We spoke to Catherine Hammond, a member of The Brisbane Golf Club for 17 years and the first lady to try out the Fetched App whilst playing a round of golf recently.
Here’s what she had to say:
How did you first get into golf?
I played squash from the age of 11 till 35, but then had to find a sport that was easier on the knees. My father was into golf and suggested I give it a go, advising that the skills of squash would be translatable to golf. I played a couple of times, and the rest is history.
How often do you play?
I play every Saturday at The Brisbane Golf Club and occasionally in competitions on a Sunday. The Brisbane Golf Club is a great club, the people are so friendly and the course is really nice to play on.
Describe your experience first using Fetched
As I am on the Committee, I was actually involved in the decision to bring Fetched into The Brisbane Golf Club. I was playing with four ladies in my group and we were really excited to use the App on the launch day. As I had downloaded the app already I ordered for them – a couple of coffees, and a couple of beers.
How long did the delivery take?
It was very quick! I placed the order on the 16th and it was delivered by the 17th and the coffees were nice and hot. Perfect for a cold day.
In one word describe Fetched
Innovative. I think it’s a great idea, there’s always issues with pace of play. People drop in at the Halfway House or go upstairs after the 9th to grab a coffee or a drink. Fetched is an effective and convenient way to speed up play and stop people waiting for coffees. It’s especially valuable in winter when there’s over 200 people playing and less daylight hours.
Would you use Fetched again?
Oh definitely, I’ll be using it most weeks!
Would you recommend Fetched to others?
I’ve started spreading the word already!
