Sweetspot- new booking system for 2021
During the 2020 season we experienced problems with late cancellations, no shows at tee times and overbooking of tee times with group bookings. We want to improve accessibility for everyone who wishes to play golf with us and have chosen to update our booking policy for 2021. In order to optimise golfing even more and meet our members and guests needs we have changed to the Sweetspot booking system.
Please note that bookings can’t be made by telephone or through reception any longer. We are happy to help you get to grips with the new booking system, just ask and we’ll show you what to do.
To be able to book tee times you’ll need to have an account with Sweetspot.
Do this as follows:
- Download the Sweetspot app on Google Play or the App Store and create an account. You can choose Swedish or English as your preferred language.
- Link your golf id (use the password you use in My Golf)
- Click Play on the top left side in the app.
You can also choose to go to the app here to create your account and book. You’ll need the app on your mobile to let us know you’ve arrived so it’s a good idea to download it now.
Find answers to the most common FAQ regarding Sweetspot below.
Book a tee time
All games on our courses are self-booked and the person who has made the booking is responsible for the booking rules being followed. Our aim is to be able to trace all bookings to a booking owner. Cancellation or changes to the number of players in your tee time must take place no later than three hours before you start playing. Tee times can be booked 60 days in advance.
We will be applying dynamic pricing for green fees during 2021. The price will depend on the time of year and time of day visitors are playing. You’ll find current prices in the tee off schedule.
This is so we can spread out visitor playing times and increase availability on our courses. All green fees must be paid in advance by the booker when booking and tee times will be released if payment does not occur within three hours of making the booking. If a member (not green fee members) your guests will always receive a discount when they play with you and are booked in with you. You can read more about that in the respective membership sections.
Paid green fees are only refunded if the cancellation occurs more than three hours before your tee time and happens automatically when you cancel. Play without paying the green fee results in a fine of 2000 SEK per person. This breach will also be reported to the player’s home club. We carry out regular green fee checks on our courses. A discounted green fee cannot be combined with other discounts.
Registering your arrival
You must register your arrival prior to playing. All tee times not registered as arrived will incur a charge of 300 SEK per person. Register your arrival on the app or in reception when you get here. Each player must register separately, i.e. one person can’t register the whole group. You can register arrival in the app when you are within 500 m of the club house, however that can be no earlier than three hours before your tee time.
If you want to book more than one tee time for a group we recommend that you book all of them yourself using the Sweetspot app. If you want our help to make a group booking we can do that, for an additional group booking fee of 100 SEK per person. This is due to increased administration and the fact that these bookings fall outside our booking regulations regarding the number of simultaneous bookings
Cancellation and No-Show
If you want to cancel please do it no later than three hours prior to your tee time. Cancelling after that will incur a charge of 300 SEK. Previously paid green fees will only be refunded if cancellation is made three hours or more prior to your tee time.
Optimising tee times
To increase availability on our courses we reserve the right to merge tee times during busy periods. Your tee time will never be brought forward and times will be changed by 20 minutes at most. If your tee time is changed you will receive an email and a notification in the Sweetspot app.
Delays in the tee schedule
In case of delays due to, for example, frost, play is always started according to the original schedule. We will always email you on the morning of the delay (fog, frost etc).
During weekends and other busy times golf hosts will be present on the course to help play flow. Their purpose is primarily to ensure players are having a good time but they also have the authority to remove players who are not following golf etiquette and rules.
Golf coupons and other discounts
Golf coupons give you 50% discount on the highest daily price of green fees on the current course. The coupons can be used on weekdays on both the New Course and the Park Course. The coupon booklet can be purchased in reception. Book your tee time on Sweetspot and choose Partner/Golfhäftet (golf coupon) in the payment method section.
V Sport golf card
Holders of a V Sport golf card receive 40% discount in green fees paid when booking on Sweetspot. A refund of the amount will be processed automatically when you show your card in reception.
Introductions from SGF, PGA, SGA, GAF and others
Holders of introductions from the above organisations or similar are welcome to visit our club. Any eventual discounts are normally given once a year, please enquire no later than the day before play.
Visitors handicap limits
On the Park Course and the New Course the handicap limit for visitors is 54 and on the Old Course 36. The Park Course is open for Pay & Play on weekdays. The Multi Course is open to everyone, even those without a Green Card (Golf ID card). Remember that you must also book to play on the Multi Course.
9 hole green fees
We have now adjusted our pricing so that you can play half rounds at a competitive price during the late afternoon.
Greenkeeping always takes precedence. If maintenance is being done nearby, show that you are ready to wait for the all clear before you play. Never check your swing in the direction of the greenkeeper or another player. Groups that are holding up play must immediately let parties behind go in front. Faster groups should always be let through. When searching for a ball, the group behind should be waved through after 30 seconds if the ball has not been found. The person with the lowest handicap in the group is responsible for seeing that participants observe golf etiquette/safety and that play is not delayed unnecessarily. Members are likewise responsible for their guests. Players not following these basic principles of golf etiquette may be asked to leave the course.
We have 18 golf buggies for hire. To drive a buggy a detailed rental agreement is signed when you pick up the key. A driving license is required. Please note that the same rules about alcohol apply as when driving a car.
450 SEK/buggy and round
200 SEK/buggy and round with doctor’s certificate
4000 SEK/annual pass – same booking conditions as above apply
The buggies cannot be booked any earlier than when booking tee times
Dogs on the course
When playing, dogs on leads are permitted on all courses at Öijared. The dog must be able to be there without disturbing other players and it goes without saying that the dog owner must clean up after the dog. If someone already playing does not want the dog to be there the dog owner should withdraw and re-book another time.
We have a simple philosophy regarding dress code. Clothing should be clean and not torn. Playing shirtless is not allowed.
Discontinued play due to thunderstorm
If you are forced to discontinue your round because of thunder you will not be refunded. If you return to reception within two hours of teeing off due to a thunderstorm we will offer a credit note equivalent to half the fee you paid for your 18 hole round.
Unplayable course due to heavy rain
If you are forced to discontinue your round because the greens are flooded you will not be refunded. If you return to reception within two hours of teeing off due to the greens being flooded we will offer a credit note equivalent to half the fee you paid for your 18 hole round.
If it is frosty all tee times will be delayed. Reception staff will notify you when it is ok to play. We do our best to predict frost and then block tee times to reduce the risk of delays to booked times.
