ClubLink's Rocky Crest Golf Resort Launches New Website

Rocky Crest Golf Resort, an iconic Muskoka resort on prestigious Lake Joseph, has just launched a new website built with the latest HTML5 architecture and Perch CMS software

MUSKOKA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 28, 2015) - Rocky Crest Golf Resort, an iconic Muskoka resort on prestigious Lake Joseph, has just launched a new website, www.rockycrest.ca. "We needed a fresh look for our site, and it was time to move to mobile-friendly responsive to keep up to date with Google's preferences," says Jerry Feltis, General Manager of Rocky Crest Resort. The new Rocky Crest website offers a big bold view that leans heavily towards great value packages and golf experiences. The site was built with the latest HTML5 architecture, and combined with Perch CMS software, allows designated resort employees to update resort packages, administrative pages and private wedding pages for wedding clients, while maintaining the design flexibility and proven advantages of an HTML5 raw script-built fast loading website. "From both a search engine optimization and user experience, we were aware of Google's upcoming changes regarding sites that load slowly. Our site is a large site, so in addition to the responsive requirement, we wanted a site that wasn't code bloated and slow to load like many CMS sites are. We also wanted to have the ability to maintain or add pages easily using Perch to give us complete control of pages that change frequently," explains Feltis. Perch CMS software can be used in combination with HTML5 site-builds because it is totally compatible, easy to use and relatively code light in comparison to most other Content Management Systems.

"Our mobile search is now nearly 50% of our new prospect business, and like all resorts, we depend on our website for a good part of our business. As well, being a ClubLink golf resort gives us an added advantage because the ClubLink brand is synonymous with great golf experiences in Ontario," says Feltis. The Rocky Crest Golf Club is one of the highest ranked golf courses in Canada, and it also has nearby access to other ClubLink courses like The Mark O'Meara Course at Grandview and The Lake Joseph Club. "We offer an unrivalled vacation experience, with fantastic onsite golf, the sparkling waters of Lake Joseph, and three different dining venues including Windows, On the Green and Bayside Patio under the supervision of Executive Chef Ken Schulz," adds Feltis.
