FAIRWAYiQ - Digitizing Golf Courses
"The company’s service and platform allows golf courses to track a variety of areas which require some form of maintenance. FAIRWAYiQ is described by Nunn as a “hardware through software solution.” The technology behind the service has been built from the ground up by the FAIRWAYiQ development team."

"A system that informs my equipment manager of potential mechanical issues, my foreman about schedules and the time it's taking to perform certain tasks, and myself about the big picture of what's taking place on the golf course - all in real time - is extremely valuable to me. It's a tool that I think will allow us to maximize our resources and our time, and will provide our members and club with solid data going forward."
The Big data revolution
"Of all the new Big Data apps for golf, FAIRWAYiQ easily wins the multi-tasking prize. The system is built around energy-efficient location sensors disguised as handsome bag tags. When attached to golf bags, pull carts, motorized carts, fairway mowers, and maintenance vehicles—essentially everything at a golf facility that moves—and linked through a purpose-built radio frequency communications hub (no reliance on sketchy commercial cellular service here), the tags coalesce into something resembling an air traffic control system."
FAIRWAYiQ: SYSTEM THAT TRACKS MOVEMENT ON COURSES
"The capabilities approach the realm of unbelievable. The software can compare the pace of play throughout a year on a course and on individual holes, and it can compare the pace of play on a 400-yard hole at Weston to every 400-yard hole on other facilities with the system."
Data-Driven Driving: How One Company Is Bringing The Science Of Process Optimization To The Golf Course
"Effective management of maintenance, through task benchmarking and proactive work scheduling, helps ensure the best use of one of the most expensive contributors to course overhead."
FairwayIQ uses connected devices and data analytics to help golf courses be more efficient
"...there are also applications for course maintenance — which incurs one of the biggest expenses for operators — like being able to track mower location and paths."
FairwayIQ Uses “Smart Tags” to Connect Golfers, Golf Courses
"The company has developed “smart tags” that connect golfers, caddies, carts, flagsticks, maintenance equipment, and staff together on a private network. The idea is to give courses an air traffic control-like overhead view of what’s going on across hundreds of acres in real-time, while also collecting historical data to help identify areas of improvement"
FairwayIQ uses system of smart tags to help golfers avoid logjams on the links
"By using a system of smart tags, FairwayIQ is able to make course operators and maintenance staff more efficient. Think of the system like air traffic control for the links. Tagging golfers, caddies, carts, flagsticks, maintenance equipment, and staff allows the operator to see an overhead view of what is going on in real time. This data is then stored to help identify what areas are in need of improvement."
