Event Calendar and Program of Events

17th June, 2019

Hi reader,

Each year Cooroy Golf Club produces a printed Annual Program Book providing information for competitions and events for the calendar year plus January of the following year.  However, this printed format lacks flexibility and the book quickly becomes less useful as the inevitable changes occur. 

Also, there is a cost associated with printing the book in its existing format, although some of this cost is offset with advertising revenue. Adding to this cost, an increasing number of printed books are thrown away each year, suggesting a dwindling need for the existing format as people adapt to a digital world.

A decision has been made to cease producing the Annual Program Book in its current format and instead move to using the online Event Calendar available on the website as the principal source of reference for competition and event information.  

The Event Calendar is based on the widely used Google Calendar.  Tips on using the Event Calendar are provided in the Post below.

2018 entries are being added progressively to the Event Calendar.

The key benefits of making this move are:

It is low cost. 

The website Event Calendar has been in use for some time and is accessible from any computer or mobile device that connects to the internet. 

You can access the Event Calendar with one click from the Calendar tab on the website main menu.

Changes to events are quickly and efficiently accommodated.

It features expanded detail and descriptions for events. 

It provides flexible viewing formatsWeek, Month. You can also choose an Agenda view, which presents all scheduled events as a list rather than as a calendar view.

It allows our program of competitions and events to be presented as a dynamic rolling 12 month view, assisting planning and scheduling.

We are mindful there are members who don't have internet access or are not comfortable using technology to access Event Calendar information.

The needs of members without internet access will be addressed by making available a printed 'next month' excerpt of calendar entries, when required. 

A dedicated desktop computer will be available in the clubhouse for use by members to make Event Calendar enquiries.  It will also be available to demonstrate use of the Event Calendar and to coach members not so comfortable using technology to access this information on the website. 

As people adapt to the digital world we are seeing members increasingly comfortable engaging with The Club through the use of technology - it is now an expectation. 

This is another step in the engagement process and to the website being a‘one stop shop’ for services, information and what's happening at Cooroy Golf Club.
