(CHESTER, NEW JERSEY) – If you’re the Head Pro at a golf course and are not conducting PGA Tour fantasy golf pools for your members, you’re missing out on a terrific win-win opportunity.
Majors Challenge, the simple and fun way to conduct and compete in golf pools, makes providing fun and excitement for your members easy while helping create sales and move merchandise from your Pro Shop.
You choose any combination of tournaments you wish to run a golf pool for, and Majors Challenge does the rest. Your last step, once your account is setup, is to send an invitation out to your members. Members will visit your Majors Challenge page, choose their 12-player team, and track their team’s performance with up-to-the-minute results on the LIVE leaderboard throughout the tournament. It’s that easy!
“Majors Challenge was built by and for the average golf enthusiast, not hard-core fantasy players,” said Dan Pitluk, creator of the platform. “That’s why it works so well at a golf club. Players find the rules familiar and pages easy to navigate. If Club Pros are already running golf pools it’s more than likely they spend a lot of time putting it together. When running a golf pool on Majors Challenge their work is essentially cut down to sending an email to their membership.”
The benefits are numerous and immediate.
- Drive more golf shop sales when awarding shop credit to the winners.
- Increase engagement from the membership when offering a modern platform with a real-time leaderboard.
- Running golf pools is a value-add that most memberships appreciate and have fun with.
Several things set Majors Challenge apart from other sites, one of which is its golf-only offering.
“Our only focus is golf,” said Majors Challenge Director of Business Development Ed Woronicz, a longtime PGA member. “Other sites are pool sites that facilitate contests for various sports. We focus on the sport we know best, so we can deliver the highest quality product to our customers.”
Another feature is that Majors Challenge team selection does not involve maximum salaries like most other sites do. In fact, there are no salaries at all.
“We divide the field into four groups of players based on world rankings,” said Pitluk. “Participants simply field their team of choice, choosing a specific number of players from each group. It’s that easy.”
Commissioners, in this case you, the Club Pro, determine what the prizes will be for the league. Participants can play for cash, gifts - or just bragging rights. Many Club Professionals conduct leagues for their members, charge an entry fee and then offer merchandise from their Pro Shop as prizes, or they will set aside a portion of the entry fees for a charity or a fund-raiser.
Possibility, flexibility, and simplicity. It is all part of the Majors Challenge game plan.
