FAIRWAYiQ, the golf industry leader in golf course management analytics and technology, has been named the Exclusive Golf Course Analytics & GPS Tracking Partner of the “PGA Magazine – PGA General Manager Program” effective immediately. The program provides the ability for PGA General Managers to obtain content most relevant for General Managers of private, public, and resort golf course facilities throughout the United States while earning PGA of America Educational MSR required credits.
“The primary purpose of the program is for like-minded PGA General Managers to share ideas from a variety of backgrounds, memberships, and overall operations,” says Rick Summers, CEO of PGA Magazine. “The content developed for this group will be provided through weekly emails, a monthly digital publication, monthly virtual meetings, in-person networking, and larger national event gatherings.”
“We are honored to be participating in this exciting program and look forward to contributing greatly to its success” explains Dave Vanslette, Founder and CEO at FAIRWAYiQ, “Our deep experience in golf course technology, analytics and GPS will help this group further their knowledge on how data and technology can help with the industry labor shortages. Analytics and automation are a way to not only combat these labor shortages but to reduce costs while improving the player experience.”
“PGA Magazine has worked with FAIRWAYiQ for over 6 years. Their dedication to innovation has been beneficial to the industry and only will heighten the educational opportunities for program participants,” says Rick Summers.
“I look forward to personally being a part of this program. FAIRWAYiQ has always put customer needs as a priority and this will be an opportunity to learn more about industry needs and educate on golf course analytics technology. The golf industry has traditionally been behind other industries in technology in general, but there has been a huge change over the past two years in particular. Education will play a role in continuing to advance technology and bring the golf industry up to par with the rest of the hospitality industry,” says Dave Vanslette. “FAIRWAYiQ is looking forward to being at the center of this change, which will be accelerated by programs like the PGA Magazine PGA General Manager Program.”
