Are you the chairman of your local board? Are you manager of a local golf club? How are you finding the local experience? Experiencing the same old problems year in and year out that just never seem to go away? One of the prominent challenges to which most golf club board members, club managers and estate boards would readily concur is always ongoing is that of the financial pressure. With or without access to financial resources, the challenges of running a golfing estate successfully will remain.
Club board members need to have an emergency meeting and go around the table once more and discuss the feasibility of contracting in professional golf management services work. It will not be a case of laissez faire. It will not be a case of washing your hands free of an acute challenge. Club managers need to approach their superiors once more and press the point again. Would they be prepared to examine the feasibility of contracting in professional golf management services work once more?
Perhaps it is accurate to suggest that most golfing estates are already making use of professional golf management services work. It would appear that the evidence is already there for all to see, both the residents and the visiting club members. These estates are well-manicured and always indicative of a pleasant atmosphere, fluctuating weather conditions notwithstanding. Of course, it should come as no surprise to learn that all the world famous fairways, used by professional playing circuits on a regular basis, are already being professionally managed.
There is a good reason why a select group of links are regularly invited to host the golfing world’s majors. Professional golf management work knows no borders. After all, who is managing The Open this year.
