GolfNow has partnered with the Martin Agency on a new consumer and B2B project that will include strategic planning plus broadcast, digital, and social creative.

The agency’s inaugural GolfNow work centers around the finding that every golfer wishes they could play more, but work and excuses get in the way. As part of the launch, Martin created four videos depicting cautionary tales of golfers who aren’t golfing. One features a golfer who’s been raking leaves for eight years straight while another depicts a frustrated office worker who’s stuck in a gif-like loop at his desk. The line “Why golf later when you can GolfNow?” punctuates each spot.

The first spot set to premiere during NBC’s Super Bowl pre-game programming, is a comic take on kids not being ready to leave the house. In it, a man says he thought he’d get to play more golf when the kids grew up. Pan back and we see that the ‘kid’ is a millennial sitting in a high chair. “This little guy doesn’t want to grow up,” says the dad as the kid complains about the food and the wifi. The dad then shows how easy the GolfNow app makes it to book tee times and find the right course.
