The Stanley Thompson Society was founded in 1998 to preserve the character of Canadian golf course architect Stanley Thompson’s work.

The challenge

The Stanley Thompson Society wanted to update the website about Stanley Thompson and the many golf courses he created. The website aims to explain the great golf course architect’s philosophy, as well as provide an overview of the Society and how it is preserving Stanley Thompson’s legacy.

As part of the upgrade, they wanted to reorganize the website, plus add the abiity to sell memberships, tickets to the golf tournament and merchandise.

The solution

This expansive website covers information on the architecture and philosophy of Stanley Thompson, as well as the current activities of the Society, and is implemented in a way that allows the site to be easily updated. Northern Village duplicated the existing website, uploaded additional content and assisted with the website organization to make it a good overview of the activities of the Society. The membership and tournament registration was implemented using the forms service Formstack, and the store was implemented using Shopify's technology.


"Northern Village was invaluable to us. No one at the Society is overly ‘tech savvy’. I would be better characterized as ‘tech challenged’. We needed to be led by the hand through software selection, website design and content loading. Northern Village bent over backwards to help us out. They completed the work on time and on budget. We have received many compliments on the new website and experienced a noticeable spike in new members following the launch of the website. The Stanley Thompson Society can’t thank Arni and team enough for their tremendous help and patience. I would enthusiastically recommend Northern Village to any organization with similar needs."
