Jacksonville, Florida, January 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Hampton Golf, which currently lists 28 golf courses under management has joined forces with newly formed KPI Golf Management.

Hampton Golf’s President MG Orender and KPI Golf’s Principal Founder John Brown have known each other in the golf business for more than 30 years. John built Brown Golf Management until selling and retiring in 2017.

“When I heard that John was back in the business, I was immediately intrigued. After speaking with him and understanding his business principles were aligned with Hampton’s, I knew this would be a great fit. There are a handful of people like John in the industry and I knew it would make sense to introduce KPI to Hampton Connect”, said MG Orender.

Hampton Connect is our new digital management solution that helps golf course operators manage their properties with complete financial transparency, train team members more frequently and ultimately make decisions based on real-time data. Hampton has always explored innovative ways to keep our Team Leaders armed with the latest technological tools to better operate their business. Now we are sharing those tools with courses that may not be financially equipped to engage in full management services.

In a recent 90-day case study using Hampton Connect, 18 golf facilities of all types (public, semi-private and private) collectively experienced over a $500,000 reduction in expenses and over a $1,000,000 increase in revenue year over year.

KPI Golf Management’s focus is on turning underperforming facilities around. As the KPI name would suggest (Key Performance Indicator), John Brown and his team lean heavily on performance data to inform decision making. What better way to execute operationally than utilizing Hampton Connect!

With KPI’s initiatives to grow, they will also be using Hampton Golf’s proven centralized services including accounting, marketing/communications, human resources, legal and buying power.

“I have incredible respect for MG and Hampton Golf”, said Brown, “and I’m really excited about the synergies between our two companies. There are some very, very big industry changing ideas coming down the pipeline”.
