Some of the UK’s most experienced experts throughout the golf industry have joined forces to form the Golf Consultants Association. This unique association, based at the Sports Industries Federation near Warwick, will provide a much needed point of reference for those requiring independent professional golf consultancy services world-wide.
The Association incorporates eight disciplines from the initial development and investment appraisal through to the operational management and marketing of golf clubs and resorts.
On behalf of the Association Stephen Proctor, one of the founding members, said, “Our collective aim is to provide clients with a highly professional service with the reassurance of working with some of the most experienced individuals in the golf business. In this way we can ensure that the client receives an efficient and cost effective service. Our nine founding members, including two from the STRI, provide a solid base for the Association’s future.
The initial cost of membership will be £250 per year and will be on an individual rather than a corporate basis. Prospective members must demonstrate substantial consulting expertise and experience in one GCA membership discipline for a minimum of five years and produce references from two client commissions.
