CLICKON Golf saw a 600% increase in traffic over Q3 and Q4 of 2015, becoming one of the world's most visited golf networks. Since launching in 2014, the site is attracting advertisers looking to reach high-spending millennials.

"Through disruptive content that is tied into trending social conversations, we're influencing the way millennials are consuming content about their favorite sports, especially in a traditional game like golf," said Richard Wilson, CEO and co-founder. 

The company also runs a branded content studio which produces creative ads for brands within sport, as well as organizations looking to connect with Generation Y through content marketing in other industries.
