Mini Golf
Gatemaster has features that are specifically designed for mini-golf facilities. Let us show you how you can secure your course for paid players. Using Gatemaster, your birthday parties will be organized and profitable and synchronized with golf times. If you have been thinking of selling tickets and merchandise online Gatemaster can have you on the web, in real time, with no per ticket charges.


Imagine your promotions organized, tracked and recorded. Never before have you been able to see in print the effectiveness of your marketing. Watch your staff when they are presented with a coupon. They simply scan it to automatically checks expiration, track where it came from and apply discounts – even coupons good for multiple players.

With any paid golf admission, a dated souvenir scorecard with the number of players is printed. Now, even on the course, you can easily identify players that have paid. Some entrances have a turnstile to control passage and will open by scanning a bar-code.

Golf equipment is checked-out with admission then easily checked back in at game end.

Events and parties have never been so painless – they can even be scheduled though the online web store. Any employee can book parties, reserve party rooms, schedule course times and select party packages with food – from any register. The most comprehensive party and reservation system ever built into a point-of-sale system is tracking and organizing every detail for you.

Since your whole facility can be monitored from the back office it takes fewer employees to run it. Even your redemption counter is more efficient with one employee doing the work of four. Sit back and watch “real time” income totals and other vital information revise as registers continually update. Even if you are not in your office, Gatemaster will alert you when inventory gets low or a cashier’s drawer gets too full.

Gatemaster has developed a system with features specifically designed to address the needs of go-kart tracks. Using Gatemaster, your birthday parties will be organized, profitable and synchronized with your track times. Turnstiles, scanners or Smartgates can be used to control your admissions and season passes; all completely integrated with the web store and onsite sales.


Imagine your customers using a “membership driver’s license” to gain entrance to your track. A beautiful color license with photo can be printed from any register. Even after customers go home they keep your license in their wallet – essentially carrying your business card wherever they go.

Some customers setup their membership license account on the web store. A license account, whether setup online or at your facility, can be used by customers as a “cashless” method of payment. Gatemaster will automatically apply discounts and record purchases.

At the track, your staff greets customers as they pass through turnstiles – automatically canceling tickets or charging consignment accounts as they go through. Since regular admission tickets can be scanned and used once there is no more handing off old tickets for later use.

One more time around the track? Attendants simply scan a license with a wireless handheld while the driver sits in the car – then off they go. Nearby the track there is a touch screen kiosk where customers buy tickets or add money to their cashless account – completely taking cash control out of the hands of attendants.

There are increased sales at the snack bars as well as portable carts and kiosks. The cashless license card will work throughout the facility as easily as cash! Even video games and your redemption counter are networked in. You can place a wireless point-of-sale turnstile or operate a handheld device anywhere in your facility.

More reasons Gatemaster has a better debit system

  • No ongoing charges for “Play Cards” or account numbers. We don’t take a percentage of your business.
  • Pre-print “Play Cards” at your local printer or print them from your ticket printer at the time of purchase.
  • Smartgates know the moment redemption dispensers are low, empty, jammed, or broken AND when they’re fixed. When attention is needed and/or equipment is repaired Smartgates send messages to the back office and e-mail the appropriate staff for immediate action.
  • If a redemption game stops dispensing tickets for any reason your customer can keep playing. Ticket winnings will be stored on their “Play Card”. The next game played automatically dispenses tickets owed.
  • Some customers want tickets – some don’t. Customers can request to have winnings saved to their “Play Card”. Ticket credits will automatically be available at the Gatemaster Redemption counter by scanning their Card.
  • Instantly view “Play Card” history at any Gatemaster point-of-sale station.
  • Customers can purchase “Timed Play” where, for a period of time, games are played free. Since redemption tickets won’t dispense for “Timed Play” even redemption games can be played.
  • Seamless integration with Gatemaster’s Point-of-sale, Kiosk, Web and Redemption system
