You have a small golf club with a nine-hole course in operation. You have little more than a hundred or so paid up members. It has to be wondered, though, just how long this enterprise is set to last. In case you have not already noticed, the business of golf is a driving business. it is not exactly a thriving business for you, now is it. Working elsewhere during the course of your day, you hardly have the time of the day to ensure that your part-time curator is keeping the grounds clean and the greens reasonably well manicured.
Reasonably well manicured? Really? Have you seen the state of those bunkers? They resemble a destructive demolition site. There is just no way any serious golfer could chip his way out of this hole. And running out of patience, he and his partners will be driving over to a new golf course by this time next weekend. Your membership drive has hardly been a success, now has it. You do need more members to sustain your club effort but it seems as though you are losing members. And pretty soon, your club and accompanying grounds will represent nothing more than a desert storm.
Yes, it takes time, money and effort to run a golf club and its accompanying greens, time, money and effort of which you and your cohorts seem to have little of. Time then to source golf management companies to your area to help you with your effort. That will have to be the subject of your next fund-raising drive. And perhaps it is a good idea to get one of the representatives of these companies to attend your club meeting to help loyal members appreciate what a professional golf management company could achieve going forward.
