We redesigned the AGCP website
Columbus, GA – Over the past 15 years we’ve had a number of websites. From very elementary when we started to our latest version. Each one attempting to improve on the previous version to benefit our members and fulfill their requests.
Our first site we a very simple site with only a few pages of information for members. Membership was free and all pages were viewable by the public. Over time the information became better and members wanted to keep between only members of our private email list. Our next site had password protected areas to prevent access to files that members shared with other members. About this time some members wanted to charge for memberships to help offset the expense of hosting a website and hiring developers to create password protected pages.
Members paid by various methods, some sent PayPal payments, some mailed checks and some called in credit card numbers to use to manually pay by credit cards. Soon members cried out to be able to login on the website and pay online. So PayPal buttons were created. Eventually we found Wild Apricot to allow members to join online and pay online. The Wild Apricot site wasn’t very pretty and it was not easy to create attractive elements for the site.
Over the years technology marched on and today we have a site using a WordPress base and an app called MemberPress. That an a few dozen plugins to allow for joining, renewing, registering for our convention and having designated pages for various levels of membership give us a terrific site.
Each level of membership gives members increased access to more information and more pages. In addition the new site has a new section for golfers too. We not only want to educate clubmakers, and clubfitters, we want to educate golfers. We want to educate the end users of our golf clubs about club fitting and advanced club building benefits.
Master Clubbuilder and Clubfitter Dana Upshaw more of less invented clubfitting using connectors to change heads and shafts as we know it today. Dana used the old original Conex system and built a set of test heads and shafts that boggled the mind. It was little used outside of the old PCS and the AGCP until Mike Stratura of Golf Digest heard about Dana and stopped by Warner Robbins, GA on the way to the Masters to see first hand what Dana was all about. He wrote about Dana and gave him the name of the Golf Club Whisperer. I guess it was about then that the OEMs started looking at what Dana was doing. 10 years later they all have their fitting bags.
We are now accepting registrations for the 14th Annual RT clubfitters convention on October 31, November 1 & 2, 2019. Registrations paid by June 30 are $100 off. Prices go up on July 1st, 2019.
