Why Does KPI Golf Management Exist?
The golf industry is experiencing gentrification right now.
Rich top-end facilities are getting richer (and more expensive) while the more affordable clubs are disproportionately going out of business.
It’s a call to arms where many stand alone facilities cannot compete without engaging expert help, economies of scale, and modern day operating efficiency.
Less than optimal golf course management can mean missing critical growth opportunities, diminishing market share, reduced valuation, or even the club’s demise.
Underperforming golf clubs can compete favorably in today’s marketplace, but they have to optimize operations. It begins with with addressing the low hanging fruit in financials & workplace culture, followed by deploying specific strategies for continuous refinement, and leveraging centralized resources at scale to compete long term.
Why do clubs want to work with KPI?
In the golf business, we are hardwired to enjoy helping people. We enjoy what we do because ultimately we are serving a greater good – creating and saving jobs, building careers, reinvigorating entire communities, preserving historic facilities, and providing healthy environments for children and families.
When golf clubs prosper, many people benefit. When clubs struggle or go under, many more feel the impact.
Our clients enjoy working with us because we share in their beliefs in the critical importance of success. A healthy club means a healthy community, and better lives for those it touches.
We believe our skills, networks, and resources can help these community centerpieces compete and thrive. At the end of the day, people enjoy being around others who are passionate and who share common beliefs.
