The age old question – answered
Over recent years one of our team noticed that the sheer workload placed on the role of ‘Club Manager’ is an insurmountable one. The profession of a golf club manager has changed completely over the last decade or so and we believe there is a niche in the market to offer a management consultancy to golf clubs to mentor and train suitable individuals to take up the mantle of the role whilst being on hand to offer advice. Develop and implement strategic plans to ensure their longevity for the future.
What we’re finding is that there isn’t enough time in the day for the majority of managers to do everything that they need to do in order to stay on top of every facet of the role at hand. Or if you’re a club without a manager then you’re relying solely on the goodwill of volunteer members of the club to step up to the plate and ensure that in a number of highly skilled areas the work undertaken is done so in a timely manner and to the desirable standard.
Often the jobs such as creating a risk register – which is a must for any business will never quite get to the top of the to-do list and the golf club will go without one, until a global pandemic hits and the need shows that ‘we really could have done with a risk register’…
We find that plans have been made previously, good plans, external consultants brought in to deliver a strong strategic framework for the club to move forward and progress to certain success and prosperity… only for the plans to remain in a draw for a few years and when someone finally gets round to picking them up, it’s all out of date and the process starts again – sound familiar?
BACK TO THE QUESTION AT HAND THEN, WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
