On October 30, 2018, Rich Smith and the SKYiGOLF team held a press conference at the World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine, Florida.
Making Golf More Fun,
And More Rewarding, Too!
Hello, I’m Rich Smith, PGA member, and Founder/CEO of an exciting new company that is going to have a big and beneficial impact on the industry.
I’ve been in the golf business since 1985. I’m a PGA Professional and the owner of two golf courses in Southwest Florida. The vision and mission for SKYiGOLF is that I want to make golf stronger on all levels – more fun for the golfers who play the game, and a lot more productive and efficient for the people who operate the game.
We can make golf more fun by bringing exciting events and programs to the game, such as $10,000 Hole-in-One opportunities at our network of SKYiGOLF facilities, and the SKYiGOLF Global Scramble that will give players the opportunity to qualify for our incredible Global finale at three world-class golf courses (Ocean Club, Royal Blue and Albany) in the Bahamas in November, 2019. Players will stay at the world-famous Atlantis Resort, where they will make memories to last a lifetime!
PGA Professionals and course operators should know, first and foremost, that we are a company built by PGA Professionals for PGA Professionals. This is something in our hearts. We understand your challenges. We will introduce you to some fascinating technology and programs that will help you to more efficiently run your businesses, in turn make the playing experience better for your golfers. That’s a win-win.
We are pleased and humbled to offer a solution that really works for those who love this great game, and we’re confident we can make the game better on all levels. That’s important to us. We want to make sure the game of golf, and the golf industry, lives, survives and thrives, so that future generations can enjoy this great sport that we love.
We also are pledging our support to a wonderful charity group, the Folds of Honor, an organization that provides educational scholarships to military families. In November, we’ll be giving the Folds of Honor a check for $55,000, which funds 11 scholarships, from our first-year program at Charlotte Harbor National Golf Club, our first SKYiGOLF club.
Thanks for visiting our web site to find out more about us, and we hope that you enjoy what we have worked diligently to create at SKYiGOLF.
