ClubUp, a North Carolina based software and service company that caters to golf clubs operating caddie programs, has announced expansion into Chicago, IL. ClubUp technology will help facilitate the caddie programs at Medinah Country Club and Onwentsia Club.
“Our entire committee was really impressed with what ClubUp had to offer. It is very important to me and to Medinah that we give our young boys and girls not only a great summer opportunity, but also give them the freedom to enjoy their summer as well. ClubUp allows us to give that.” – Marty DeAngelo, Director of Golf at Medinah Country Club.
ClubUp provides innovative services which help improve the caddie experience for the members and caddies at its partner clubs. Additionally, ClubUp technology offers clubs a way to communicate with and pay caddies working as independent contractors on the property. The improved communication, efficient logistics and cashless payment options provided by ClubUp yield significant productivity improvements for caddies and club operations.
Nick Papedakas, the head golf professional at Onwentsia Club, commented on ClubUp software being introduced at Onwentsia Club... “When we were looking for ways to modernize our caddie program, the ClubUp team offered the best solutions. The ClubUp software will help us to streamline our caddie program/process so that we can better focus on the golf experience here at Onwentsia.”
ClubUp operates in North Carolina, Georgia, Arizona, Virginia, and Florida. In addition to a corporate partnership with the Metropolitan Golf Association in New York, the company also has a national partnership with The First Tee. The ClubUp Board of Directors includes company founder Matthew Rose, as well as leaders in the golf industry including Seth Waugh, Scott Mahoney and Ken Thompson.
“Chicago is one of the most important caddie markets in the country. The opportunity to work together with clubs like Medinah and Onwentsia is something that we are all very excited about. We hope to use these new relationships to grow in the Midwest in 2019 and beyond.” Rose said.
