Best last-minute booking site/tools?

I realize that these forums are created and managed by an excellent Golf Trip Package agency; however, are there any tips or best strategies for booking a last minute round?

Many years back, Martins had a golf desk in the lobby that I had used for booking last minute tee-times. Does the PGA Tour Superstore still have this service, or has it all gone online?

Just looking for best-practices used by locals, and others that have been in the same boat.

 

Thanks

Brian can book 48 hour rates.   
  
Some courses have good 48 hour rates, some don't and it may depend on how busy
they are that day. 
 
PGA Superstore still has tee time booking in the lobby.

I will not use anyone but Brian for booking golf.  He is the best.

Use Brian - no more needs to be said. 

Golf is just an excuse to drink whiskey and smoke cigars

We have an online booking engine attached to this Site. You'll see the Online Quote tab in the Navigation bar. It has multiple round golf only packages and individual tee time rates. There is also a tab for the last minute bookings, many of the courses have gone away from 48 hour rates, aka Last Minute discounts, in favor of Yield Management. Yield Management increases the cost of the round as availability decreases, therefore making last minute tee times the most expensive. So there is a benefit at some courses and not at others. The courses stopped pushing discounted last minute rates about 2 years ago. We found that people were not booking golf/lodging packages and instead would just book cheap room on AirBnB, or VBRO and then just book last minute discounted rounds where ever they could.

We use Brian for all of our bookings generally. Last year on our May trip, due to some rescheduling caused by rain we ended up with a free sunny afternoon.  We unexpectedly got a good deal on Glen Dornoch from the booth inside the PGA Superstore.  They had good rates for some courses, and not so good rates for others.
