Charlotte, NC, United States, 2010/09/16 - Nicklaus Companies LLC, founded by famed golfer Jack Nicklaus, has selected social media company, The Targeted Group, as their exclusive social media solutions provider.
Nicklaus Companies LLC, the company founded by golf legend Jack Nicklaus and privately owned by the Nicklaus family, has partnered with The Targeted Group to develop web services to better connect club members using The Targeted Group’s proprietary social media platform—Club Member Connect™.
The Targeted Group will be implementing a number of social media initiatives for the Nicklaus Companies, including the development and launch of Nicklaus Connect, a proprietary, interactive networking environment. This robust online community will connect an expansive number of golf courses worldwide, including a primary audience of Nicklaus Design golf courses. Nicklaus Connect will provide the means for General Managers, Course Superintendants, PGA Professionals, and other key staff to communicate and engage, not only with other Nicklaus Design courses around the world, but also with the Nicklaus Companies, as a whole.
Nicklaus Connect will capitalize on the power of social media, allowing its members to make connections and expand their professional network, share knowledge and expertise, and learn industry best practices within an online environment exclusive to the Nicklaus Companies and its clients and partners.
“As a company with over 10 years of experience creating solutions in the golf industry, we are thrilled and honored to enter into this agreement with such a premier brand,” said Greg Gentner, Chief Operating Officer of The Targeted Group. “The implementation of Nicklaus Connect is testimony to the Nicklaus Companies’ position as a leader in the market.”
“With the Nicklaus Design family of courses now totaling over 350 and spread across 34 countries, we identified a need to continually make ourselves available to assist our golf course design clients in operating their golf clubs,” said Tien Chu, Chief Information Officer of the Nicklaus Companies. “We looked for ways to improve our connection to our Nicklaus Design clients and we believe we have found the solution with The Targeted Group.”
