Black Knight International announced today that they have launched a new Gary Player website including the various entities managed by The Player Group at www.garyplayer.com.
Recognized as the most successful international golfer of all time, the new Gary Player website gives users an in-depth look far beyond the Black Knight’s golf career. Fans will learn about the man himself, his lifetime achievements and stats, and the many victories he accumulated during his career spanning six decades. In addition, visitors also can view the latest information about Gary Player Design, The Player Foundation, the Gary Player Invitational global series, the Gary Player Golf Academy, Player Real Estate, the Gary Player Stud Farm, Dr. Ian Player’s legacy, purchase Black Knight merchandise, and view content galleries and videos dating back to the 1930s.
The website is user friendly with improved functionality for the mobile age, allowing visitors to scroll with easier access to information about Black Knight International. One of the most exciting changes from the previous website is now all Gary Player and Black Knight social media content is linked to the site through a “Social Hub,” allowing users to interact and view the latest news and information involving everything the Gary Player stands for.
“We are thrilled to launch our new website to give Gary Player’s fans a one-of-a-kind online experience,” said Marc Player, CEO of Black Knight International. “We want users to live the story of not only Gary Player, but also all of the wonderful stories, latest news updates, and great content being shared across all of our business platforms. We set out to create a website that captures all of this with easy-to-navigate functionality and a content rich experience. If you love golf, you just have to visit.”
Visitors to the site can take a trip through the “World of Gary Player,” which showcases some of the Black Knight’s most significant milestones in his life and 64-year career as a professional golfer. Gary Player Design’s page also features an interactive map of the international golf course architecture firm’s vast portfolio around the world. Fans can find all the information about the most successful global charity golf event series in the world on the Gary Player Invitational page, and can make donations directly to The Player Foundation to help Gary Player on his quest to raise $100 million for underprivileged children. The new Black Knight Shop offers fans the ability to purchase Black Knight apparel, golf accessories, books, and memorabilia with all proceeds benefiting The Player Foundation.
