First a little background, prior to the August long weekend I was up in Kelowna for a couple of days with family and friends. On one of the days I was out golfing with my brother at Predator Ridge. The weather was perfect and we had a great day on the course even if my score didn’t reflect it.
After the 18th hole and checking our golf carts back in I discovered that I had lost my Driver Head Cover somewhere on the course. I waited for the next couple of groups to come back to see if someone had picked it up, but nobody had it. Instead of waiting around I just decided it was lost and since I was going home early the next day didn’t have time to drive back up and pick it up even if it was returned.
That’s where Social Media comes in. I noticed on my Twitter timeline that a good friend of mine Jeff Cieko (@CKGolfSolutions) was up in Kelowna. I remembered losing my head cover there a few weeks back and half-jokingly sent out the following Tweets.

I’ve had so many great interactions with companies on Social Media and Predator Ridge (@predatorridge) is another one I’ll add to that list. It’s great to see a company engaged in Social Media and quickly able to help out a past client even for something as simple as returning a lost item with little monetary value.
I know where I’ll be golfing next time I’m in Kelowna. Thank you Predator Ridge!
