About Us

We Are CK Golf

Two Eagles

We Are CK Golf

CK Golf was created in 2008 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 15 years we have worked with private, semi-private, public, 9 hole and 18 hole golf courses owned by single owners, boards and municipalities. We have provided golf course internet marketing services, strategic planning, sales training, event management and more. With the loss of my partner and founder in 2023 CK Golf is now even more focused on what we do best…internet marketing!

We are not consultants, we are business partners with the golf courses we work with. We help your team tell your story, communicate your important messages, reach your goals and improve your financial position. Whether you are looking to generate leads for a specific service or program or to tell a story we can help! We do the work so that you can spend more time with your customers and your team.

Your Industry Partners

We have built a reputation through our 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 communication, advertising and online presence.
