A Tactical Roadmap for Underperforming Golf Courses

Market forces are bringing about further course closings…and we all understand the devastating effects this brings to local communities. Most country club operators understand the urgency of efficiency and winning market share, but for one reason or another just haven’t been able to execute as well as intended.

I’m volunteering to moderate fruitful discussion for the benefit of golf, bringing 45+ years of country club ownership and management experience to the table. I’ll be presenting on various topics, sharing experiences and solutions, opening the floor to questions, and hopefully arming your club with tactics that you can deploy immediately.
