The challenge

Achieving ambitions through innovation

Leading Courses, the leading European booking and review platform for golfers, has high ambitions. They not only encourage members of the golfing community to share their experiences but also strive for all golfers worldwide to use their platform when looking for places to golf next.

To fulfill this ambition, Leading Courses wants to provide its audience with inspirational digital content, personalized where possible. But since all content is available in 9 languages, and Leading Courses offers a selection of 25.217 golf courses in 153 countries, offering personalized content is just as much a challenge as it is an opportunity. 

To successfully roll out this transformation, Leading Courses determined it was time to focus more on innovation. First up: implementing a modern, headless architecture and CMS.

The solution

Transforming outdated systems

Leading Courses wanted to transform their outdated content architecture to a flexible infrastructure, preferably modular with microservices and definitely headless. With this approach, the platform could streamline and centralize the existing content in the backend, and work from one centralized portal for all languages, allowing LeadingCourses to maintain a leading position in the market.

After extensive market research, Leading Courses selected Prepr as its new headless CMS. Together with implementation partner Levarne, we worked on creating a modular architecture, in which our headless CMS is the core.

During the implementation, we provided technical support and advised on content strategy, data strategy, and technology. Through our feature ‘Content Integration’ We made it possible for Leading Courses to effortlessly connect their platform with external databases, increasing the amount of available content.

Mensely

“Prepr is a very powerful and flexible content management platform, as their graph-technology connects content to data. With this, we can complete our digital transformation, as we are now able to show relevant content based on recommendations, and personalize content based on interaction data. A better digital experience at all touchpoints.”

The result

Content management: simplified and more efficient

As a result of our shared efforts, we set up a flexible, robust, and modern headless content architecture. Here, we integrated all content management practices, making content management simpler and more efficient.

As Prepr is 100% API-first, we made it possible for Leading Courses to integrate Prepr in their digital landscape and simply this. Now, instead of having separate platforms, Leading Courses uses one modular portal where content from all 9 languages is integrated. With this new platform, Leading Courses can present its content as a business-driver, offering the audience unique and inspiring content, tailored to their personal, online behavior.

This enables Leading Courses to maintain its leading position in the golf market, allowing them to achieve their goals.
