At the time of writing, your CIC was using a golf course to propel his negotiations forward. While he’s acting in your business interests and helping to secure a few more jobs, he’s also acting in the interest of world peace. It really does not matter which era we speak of, so this note on the golf course business is still going to be timely. Many epochal and historical deals have been sealed at the eighteenth hole. And many successful business agreements have come into being somewhere inside of the clubhouse.
Owning or running a golf course is a serious business. There is no money making racket behind the scenes. Rather, and in general, every effort is being made to secure funds to keep the course and its attached club viable. Because running a golf club and course is not only a serious business, it also has a pretty heavy price tag too. Is it any wonder then that club fees for members remain so high? This is not an administration that can be run single-handedly.
Not even a handful of selected members, committee members, are enough these days. Golfing is a competitive business too, so you need to be several steps ahead of the next line of clubs at all times in order to survive and secure a major tournament. You need the help of professional golf course business services to handle all or most of your affairs. At your next committee meeting, place all of these in the hat.
Pick out one task and delegate it to your professional golf course and club services administrator. Fees charged for the services could go some way in helping to cut all losses going forward. Let this link be your fundraiser from now on.
