Renovation workshop – the benefits of ensuring your course is at its best

1.00am 19th June 2009 - Management Topics

Golf clubs are trying all manner of initiatives in the battle to attract customers, but they be overlooking their biggest asset.

People go to a golf club because of its golf course, and, while this may be stating the obvious, far too many clubs underestimate the benefit to be gained from ensuring it is at its very best – and it’s surprisingly easy to make this happen.

On Thursday, 9th July commencing at 10.30 a.m., Swan Golf Designs is hosting a renovation workshop at East Berkshire GC – including 18 holes of golf – to inform golf clubs about why courses need renovation, the ease with which that can happen and the benefits to be gained.

The workshop is supported by Golf Business and Golf Business Development magazine.

East Berkshire GC has been specifically chosen as the venue because its course has recently undergone a programme of renovation and the day will include the inspection of the work and the improvements resulting from it.

In addition, delegates can also find out how to maximise the potential of their clubhouse as Jon Barker, from Adderley Barker Design, will be giving a mini workshop on the value of architectural design and branding.

Jon will outline the best way to maximise the clubhouse’s commercial potential through excellence in design and renovation. Case studies include golf developments for Crown Golf, Surrey Downs and Remedy Oak.

And after hearing from the experts there will be an opportunity to enjoy a round on East Berkshire GC’s fantastic course.

All those interested in attending the workshop, which is free of charge, should contact Swan Golf Designs via Places are strictly limited and applications must be received by Tuesday 30th June.
