Link: Who Owns a Club's Marketing Database?

The October issue of GolfBusiness, contained a fascinating article about who owns a club's marketing database where the club is managed by a third party. As the author rightly points out, the obvious answer, that the club not the management company owns the data is not always correct. When a club enters into a management agreement with a third party manager, it should ensure that its contract for those services contains a clause which makes it unequivocally clear that all such databases, lists, etc. are the property of the club not the management company.

NJ Open Update

Today's post is slightly off topic, but I thought I'd drum up some fan support for my younger brother who is playing in this week's NJ Open conducted by the New Jersey State Golf Association. Robert is an amateur and former captain of the Cornell Men's Golf Team.

He finished the first day in a tie for third, one shot off the lead, after shooting a 3-under 69 in Tuesday's opening round at Manasquan River Golf Club in Brielle, NJ. A link to the Asbury Park Press story can be found here.

The 54-hole event continues today with another 18 holes before cutting the field to 50 players for tomorrow's 18-hole final round. Live tournament scoring is available from the NJSGA's website here.

The deranged man's club selection remains unknown at this time.
