Liberty National Upgrades Golf Course and IT for The Barclays

This week, the top 123 golfers in the PGA Tour’s point standings are in Jersey City for The Barclays golf tournament at Liberty National Golf Club, home to the spectacular championship course designed by Hall of Famer Tom Kite and architect Bob Cupp.

Since Liberty National was introduced to the world at The Barclays tournament in 2009, the course has undergone a major redesign, with modifications to 15 of the 18 holes – similar to what has happened at Augusta National, home of the Masters, over the years.

While these course alterations have received the headlines, many IT upgrades behind the scenes will contribute to a first-class experience for fans, members and the press at Liberty National Golf Club, a valued customer of Atlantic-IT.net.

We’ve helped Liberty National implement a Payment Card Industry (PCI)-compliant, wireless credit card processing system. This system not only makes it incredibly easy and convenient to accept and process credit card purchases, but it ensures that credit cardholder information is protected by the highest security standards in the industry.

Because Liberty National’s wireless credit card processing is segmented, or isolated, from the rest of the club’s network, the system is simpler and more cost-efficient to maintain and offers even greater protection and control of cardholder data. It also reduces the scope and cost of the PCI Data Security Standard assessment.

During The Barclays, all members of the media will enjoy wireless internet access – no small achievement on a 7,353-yard golf course that overlooks the Hudson River. Atlantic-IT.net constantly monitors and supports Liberty National’s IT infrastructure to ensure optimal network performance and availability.

Atlantic-IT.net understands the unique IT needs of country clubs like Liberty National Golf Club, and we’re proud to play an important role during high-profile events like The Barclays. We’re confident that the club’s robust IT network and the work we’ve done behind the scenes will help to provide a truly memorable experience for everyone involved in the tournament.
