Website for Albatross golfklubb

For Albatross golfklubb we created a bespoke WordPress website with integration to the Swedish Golf IT system (GIT).

The Challenge

Albatross Golf Club is a golf club outside of Gothenburg, Sweden. With two courses, one 18 hole course and one 9 hole course, with an additional 9 hole par three course; it is one of the largest clubs in the Gothenburg area.

Last year, Albatross Golf Club adopted a new vision and along with that wanted to update their branding. Having worked to already refresh their logo and update their identity, they also needed a new website.

The Solution

Beautiful, modern responsive design

Using the new identity and logo as a base we created a beautiful and modern website design for the club which puts the golfers need right front and center.

The design heavily promotes big, gorgeous imagery and puts the course and golfing in the spotlight. After all, the primary goal of the website is to get golfers, members or guests, out playing on the wonderful course.

Naturally, the website is completely responsive. This means that it scales itself easily depending on the browser, device and viewport that you are currently on. Whether you are mobile on your phone, surfing the web from a tablet, or on a big desktop monitor, the site will look equally appealing.

Easy administration and editing

There are a lot of things for a golf club to handle when it comes to administration, and the website is just a small (but important) part. Therefore it is very important that the site is easy to maintain and update.

We have created a special page administration interface, which builds on the intuitive WordPress interface which is so widely loved and user friendly. In it, administrators can easily create beautiful pages that also are very effective for the users.

Custom system integration with GIT

To allow members to log in we developed a custom integration to GIT, which is the Swedish Golf Associations IT system. Using their API we are able to get members’ details and present to them a profile page of their very own.

Additionally, the integration lets us hide certain information to be viewed by members only. This, without the need for any additional accounts for the users. All they need is the login details that they are already using to administer their golfing and book tee times all around Sweden.

The Results

Reviewing website analytics following the launch of the Albatross golfklubb website, we witnessed increased viewership by 2x. Albatross golfklubb reports improved customer engagement and ease-of-use in updating the online space.
