CBGS, Cambridge Business Golf Society, is an organisation for Cambridge based business leaders to network, whilst also enjoying high-quality golf events and raising money for charity.
CBGS had lost its previous website, so was relying on a system of Microsoft Forms to take event bookings. This left CBGS volunteers having to create invoices for each individual booking to manage and collect payments. With a total of 12 events a year and around 50 people attending each event, this was a lot of admin work and a better system was required.
The lack of central online hub for the society, also meant that there was no way of viewing the other members of the society or promoting the great work that the society does for charity.
The newly designed WordPress website has a fully online booking system, to easily promote events and manage bookings. It has a modern but classic design and a simple interface, to direct users quickly to relevant information. Most of the events in 2023 sold out quickly with the easy booking and payment system, and requiring much less admin input.
We created a directory of members, which has greatly improved the ability to network within the society and do business together, a news section to share event reports and important information, plus a page about event sponsors.
Feedback from the society members has been very positive!
