NAPLES, Fla. (June 26, 2019) – Golf Life Navigators, the world’s only virtual marketplace for consumer-to-club connections, announced last week that noted private golf club expert Jeff Raimer is joining its executive team as senior data analyst.
Throughout his illustrious career of more than 35 years, Raimer has facilitated four clubs into becoming “member-owned,” and demonstrated vast success in developing industry professionals by promoting assistants into numerous head professional or director of golf positions.
Elected into the South Florida PGA Section Hall of Fame in 2015, Raimer was previously the director of golf at the West Bay Beach & Golf Club in Estero, Fla. for 11 years. He also was the South Florida PGA’s Golf Professional of the Year in 2005 as well as an elected officer with the PGA’s Southwest Section for 17 years.
Raimer will be responsible for showcasing GLN’s data and trends on the specific ingredients prospects are looking for when researching private clubs for membership. His duties will also include educating consumers and prospective members on club finances as well as assisting club operations on working “hand-in-hand” with real estate divisions to offer an all-encompassing buying experience.
“I’m excited about joining the Golf Life Navigators team as the trendsetting data they provide private clubs is essential for targeted growth in today’s competitive marketplace,” says Raimer. “Their unique programs are exactly the data prospective members and clubs need to access invaluable information and make profitable decisions.”
Raimer will also assist private clubs with individual marketing programs and work closely with GLN’s CEO Jason Becker on developing the company’s innovation, strategic marketplaces.
“Jeff is passionate about our quest to position Golf Life Navigators as a go-to resource for clubs who are positioning themselves for future buyers, we are excited to have him as an integral part our supercharged team,” says Becker. “His valuable professional experience in the private club sector will be a tremendous asset as we continue our incredible growth across the Sun Belt.”
GLN recently unveiled the next generation of its marketplace designed to offer unprecedented flexibility and access to its platform for clubs seeking exposure and connection with highly qualified prospective members. The updated GLN marketplace now offers three levels of participation to provide clubs with an experience tailored to their membership recruitment needs: Marketplace Entry and Marketplace Link. Marketplace Pro will be GLN’s premier level offering clubs a series of data and analytics programming.
“The innovative new program from Golf Life Navigators is very impressive and a fantastic way to obtain information about what prospective members desire and need in a club,” says Zach Wygant, general manager of Quail Creek Country Club. “Club executives are all about making data-driven decisions and the new Golf Life Navigators platform is an amazing and helpful tool for those decision-makers.”
