GGGolf aims to share industry knowledge and better understand golf courses’ needs
While golf season may be winding down, that doesn’t mean GGGolf has slowed down. This month, GGGolf attended the Golf Quebec FundraiserTournament, The Canadian Society of Clubs Managers National Conference and the 7th Annual BPG Buying Group Show. All events are valuable in allowing GGGolf to connect with industry professionals and assess where we can better serve the needs of golf courses. We also relished the opportunity to share what GGGolf’s plans are for the future.
About the CSCM
The CSCM is the biggest association of club managers in Canada, mostly representing private clubs. Not only does the CSCM cater to golf clubs, but also social, tennis, country and city clubs. This year’s event took place in London, ON.
GGGolf was present at the event with our own booth and it gave us an excellent opportunity to engage with club managers. GGGolf President Gilles Gauthier and Lise Beaudet, head of customer service, were both present at the conference. In attending and participating at the CSCM, GGGolf was able to gain a better understanding of emerging club management needs, the biggest challenges facing the industry and determine how we can help golf clubs moving forward.
The 7th annual BPG Buying Group Show took place from October 15-18 at the Brookstreet Hotel in Kanata, ON. This show allows golf pros and staff to discover and order the latest gear and apparel available for next golf season. The BPG Buying Group also held a gala rewarding the best pros, golf shops and suppliers in different regions around the country as well as an annual golf tournament. The GGGolf team consisting of Gauthier, Beaudet, Katherine Lauriault and Catherine Gauthier attended, along with Jodi Newfield, from GGGolf’s sister company DockMaster in West Palm Beach, Florida, to network with proshop managers and clients. It was a pleasure for the GGGolf team to meet with clients and all the other players from the Canadian Golf industry.
The BPG Buying Group consists of over 150 pro shops in Canada. The BPG group uses GGGolf to manage their members, billing and invoices.
GGGolf’s Purpose in attending CSCM & BPG
After having attended both these incredible events, GGGolf feels we’ll be better suited to serve golf courses with our golf management software next season and beyond.
“It’s very important for us to connect with our clients and prospects and listen to their needs,” says Gilles Gauthier, founder and president of GGGolf. “This is what allows us to offer the best products and services possible. We are proud to be active members of this great community that is the golf industry, and these events offer us the best way to do that.”
In wrapping up the 2019 golf season, GGGolf enjoyed another successful season in increasing our customer base and improving our existing products for our customers. We can’t wait for the 2020 golf season to arrive and keep improving our services.
