In 2007 we were appointed IT Strategist to Young Masters Golf on the basis that we would repair and enhance the YMG website.
This we did over a period of six months.
The primary site became clean of all errors.
It was enhanced to provide a quiz.
We implemented a Forum and a Tournament Booking System.
We produced an Interim Shop - an ASP Starter Kit selling YMG badges and contracted YMG to Ocean Design for a Online Retail Shop and provided 3 laptops for YMG to conduct business.
We began work on Lady Masters Golf and YMG International and was looking to use House On The Hill
help desk services.
When time came to invoicing David Gosling said that he had lost control of his company and could not pay.
In 2015 David Gosling re-appeared as Bitesize Golf - Implementing Social Media Ideas that we had developed for him in 2007 but he had not addressed the international communications portal that we were working on for his overseas ventures.
We said that we would be willing to work on this and an international finder for him should he elect to promote our Meritocracy. David agreed and we commenced work.
Communications proved difficult - David is clearly a game player and our effort did not get implemented.
David gives the excuse that life is difficult and that he has taken employment outside golf - yet he continues with his Bitesize product. If he has near the 1,500 golf professionals on board that he advertises then he still has a viable business.
We are concerned that there are still deficiencies in his online product and that it does little to attract traffic. It might not be as responsive as it needs to be - if mobile phones are to be considered.
We would still like to work with Dave on his strategy and help him develop his Elite program as we believe that the future of golf club management is in the hands of junior golfers.
We have no other option than to go it alone - without support from David Gosling.
Which is a real shame as David puts in so much effort into junior golf.
We wish David the best - and when you want to know what we think - simply ask.
