Cherokee Strip Golf Classic
The Cherokee Strip Golf Classic is America’s longest running free-standing pro-am and directly benefits the Opportunity Center of Ponca City, an incredible organization devoted to helping the developmentally disabled in Kay County be successful and “live life to the fullest.”
For over 6 years now I have had the privilege of being the steward of the Classic’s online presence. I built a revamped website in 2017 which allowed for the first time participants to register and pay online for the tournament, as well as donate to the Opportunity Center of Ponca City.
After 6 years, the site was beginning to look dated and therefore I rebuilt the entire site from the ground up, completely designed and coded from scratch myself. I utilized Tailwind CSS as the primary design system to iterate quickly and implement my vision for the site in a quick and easy manner. It shaved HOURS off the development time thanks to live reloading the site and blocks on changes.
The site also fully utilizes WordPress’ block system. Each section is a block which let me quickly re-use repeating blocks throughout the site. This allowed the site to be rebuilt in just two weeks, just in time for a new year’s registration season to begin. I’m happy to report the site performed admirably and the tournament is completely booked, making this the largest CSGC in history.
