Published online: Jul 07, 2015 Golf News

RESTON, Va.—Golf Membership Consultants (GMC) has selected Buffalo Brand Invigoration Group (Buffalo) to manage a public relations program and consult on marketing and business strategies to expand GMC's market presence.

Based in Naples, Fla., with offices statewide, GMC facilitates the process of determining suitable golf and country club membership options in Florida for golfers, spouses and significant others planning for retirement or relocating for other reasons. Its properties division finds primary and secondary residences in gated golf and non-golf communities. Plans are for the company to extend its services to additional warm-weather markets.

Created two years ago by PGA Professionals and real estate experts with vast experience and market relationships, GMC guides discerning golfers, club members and home buyers to choose wisely during these very personal and important undertakings. Clients receive in-depth analysis and insights befitting their unique lifestyle and financial desires.

"Roughly 100,000 Americans moved to Florida each of the past three years," says Jason Becker, president of GMC and a member of the PGA. "Buffalo will help expand our market reach while telling the story of GMC holistically saving clients time, money and unhappiness from hasty decisions made on limited or bad information."

"There are 1,200 golf clubs and thousands of residential options in Florida," says Rich Katz, managing director of Buffalo. "This could be daunting, but, by simplifying and narrowing what should be one of life's most exciting transitions, GMC eases fear, misdirection and overall stress associated with relocation."

Headquartered in Reston, Buffalo has offices in New York, Boston, Denver, Minneapolis, Raleigh and Richmond. The firm's public relations, strategy development, integrated marketing, social media and design work increases awareness, market share and profits for companies and organizations operating in more than 40 countries. Clients include LPGA, Cordillera Ranch, Nicklaus Brands, Kauai Visitors Bureau, Keswick Hall, Telluride Ski and Golf Resort, World Golf Foundation, ECCO footwear, Ballybunion Golf Club (Ireland), PGA National Resort & Spa, Galvin Green and Sea Pines Resort.
