We are happy to hear that the Town of Fairfield Golf Commission has selected a new software vendor to manage the tee times at the town's public golf courses. However, we are concerned about timing. While the current tee time solution is not user-friendly, another common complaint is the 5 AM time required to log-in to the system to have a chance at getting a desired tee time reservation. Such an early wake up is an inconvenience for most people and especially frustrating when you are unable to get a reservation due to a technical glitch in the system, or get shut out because of high demand. We believe a municipal golf course should provide the best accessibility to the general public. The current tee time system and the 5 AM timing does not accomplish this goal.

We, the golfers at H. Smith Richardson, ask the Golf Commission to change this timing. We believe there are better alternatives to 5 AM, as other public courses have demonstrated. For example, making tee times available on-line at 10 PM or midnight, 7 days in advance, would be preferred by the majority of golfers who play at H. Smith Richardson. Log-in times could be staggered like they are today for residents and season pass holders. We ask that the Golf Commission work with Bob Bigonette and his staff to find a reasonable solution that works best for the majority.

Thank you for your consideration.
