CK Golf Solutions Ltd.
CK Golf was created in 2008 because we wanted to help golf course owners and operators make more money. We could see that the industry was struggling and thought that our golf course operator experiences, best practices, proven strategies and passion could make a difference to some operations. Over the last 8 years we have worked with private, semi-private, public, 9 hole and 18 hole golf courses owned by single owners, boards and governments. We have provided golf course internet marketing services, strategic planning, sales training, event management and more.
Our approach is unique. We are not consultants, we are business partners with the golf courses we work with. We do not stand on the outside of your business and tell you what you should do. We become an extension of your team and help you reach your goals. We have built a reputation through hands on involvement during every phase of work for our clients as well as through our continued golf course industry involvement. Our extensive golf industry experience and connections enable us to fully understand a businesses need for creative and innovative solutions that are also practical, executable and measurable.
We do our best to practice what we preach; to stay on top of social media and internet marketing trends, to be aware of new golf software and technology and to follow other related industries. Our goal is to be golf industry leaders and assist golf courses with improving their bottom line. Our experience and golf industry connections can help you find new ways to solve a problem. We believe in the importance of relationships and engagement between golf course owners and operators, vendors, associations and consumers and strive to facilitate these connections.
