Golf USA Tee Time Coalition Welcomes Jared Williams
Charleston, S.C. (Mar. 7, 2016) -- Jared Williams has been selected to run the daily operations of the Golf USA Tee Time Coalition, a joint initiative of the National Golf Course Owners Association and the PGA of America.
“We are excited about Jared coming on board, because this is the industry putting full-time support behind an issue that has caused a great deal of angst,” says Jay Karen, CEO of the NGCOA. “Our hope is that, with Jared’s help, we will be able to facilitate fair play and beneficial practices in the tee time distribution practice.”
The coalition, formed last year, provides education for golf course owners, operators and PGA members, and serves as an industry monitor for compliance of third-party online tee time providers against important industry standards. Representing the supply side of the industry, the coalition will engage the software companies and tee time distributors to solve problems in the marketplace and support efforts that leverage tee time inventory for financial sustainability and growth.
“I'm really excited to have the opportunity to be back in the golf industry,” says Williams. “I am very passionate about the game, and I understand the importance of this new role. I plan to work tirelessly to find an equitable solution to the issues regarding tee time distribution practices.”
Williams comes to the coalition from the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association, where he served as director of administrative and legal affairs. Prior to that he was the compliance services coordinator at the Southwestern Athletic Conference. He has also worked as a legal intern at the LPGA and at golf courses in Louisiana.
Williams began working for the coalition on March 2. To reach him, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
