Better support. More intuitive & easy to Use

New web site powered by nooQ Golf & Golf Genius

Issues with old site?

The primary challenge was to migrate a decade’s worth of content without disrupting the club’s online presence. The website hosted a vast array of historical data, member information, and media, all of which were crucial to the club’s operations and legacy. Ensuring a seamless transition while integrating new functionalities was essential.

It was almost 10 years old, so old fashioned in parts and probably overly cluttered as we hadn’t conducted any real review of some of its content for some time. 

 

Challenge to the business before

Connectivity to Golf Genius competition software was challenging and often only resolved by extra manual additions and created added click links required.

Excellent to work with. Responsive and helpful. Solution driven.

The back office admin of our new website is intuitive and easy to use. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend nooQ Golf to other organisations wishing to migrate to a new site.

Solution

Partnering with Golf Genius, we embarked on a comprehensive website overhaul. The migration process was meticulously planned to ensure no data was lost, and the content was transferred seamlessly. There were over 300 old competitions, 2500 files, 2000 images, 9 email accounts, 50k emails and 550 web pages to migrate.

We managed to restructure the site, reorganise what was needed and what could be archived. 

The new platform introduced advanced capabilities, including:

  • Live Scoring: Members and visitors can now access real-time scores during competitions, enhancing the overall experience using Golf Genius live leaderboards.
  • Competition Management: Organizing and managing tournaments has become more efficient, with automated processes and easy access to essential data. Moving from paper, PDF and email submissions to online registration and payment.
  • Event Management: Scheduling and promoting events is now streamlined, allowing for better member engagement.
  • Inter County & Inter Club League Matches: The new system supports the management of club leagues, ensuring accurate and timely updates. Match results are submitted online and league tables, fixtures and match reports are all automatically updated with minimal admin to verify and cross check results. Again moving from excel, PDFs and emails which can be difficult to view especially on mobiles.

What’s been the difference ?

The new web site has significantly modernized Hertfordshire Golf’s digital presence. They now enjoy a robust, future-proof platform that not only preserves its rich history but also meets contemporary demands.

“We held semi regular meetings over a long period before a concerted effort to go live before the start of the playing season saw a more targeted approach from both parties towards the final month or so. Target dates were met and the site has been operational without downtime and straight transition with very few issues. 

More modern site, improved integration with Golf Genius software, more streamlined content with a more aesthetically pleasing presentation.

Positive feedback from both external public and internal volunteers, as well as some other County bodies.”

We would recommend nooQ Golf who met our needs exactly, particularly as we were becoming disillusioned with the support and feedback from our previous suppliers, which are areas we believe Graeme and nooQ Golf excel in. We recommend others in our position to do the same.
