RECENTLY RELEASED ON GIG

Here’s a summary of just some of the proven practical strategies and advice you’ll find inside GIG for planning, building, and growing a successful golf club business.

New Course

Creating Big Time Staff Happy!

‘Creating Big Time Staff Happy!’ is the first course in our multi-course ‘Manager & Supervisor Certification’ series which will be released over time, and where the curriculum or “Book of Certification” focuses on the most important Club leadership & management skills. This nearly 90-minute course from the legendary Gregg Patterson is all about creating “Staff Happy” which is the key to success in the hospitality business!

New Course

The Change Adventure!

In this 1 hour and 40-minute course, Gregg Patterson will address the principles and the practices that you as a club manager or supervisor will need to manage “The Change Adventure”! The COVID-19 pandemic is still with us and change is continuing to happen whether you like it or not. Change is an adventure filled with risk and uncertainty and managing the change opportunity is critical for your success as a club manager or for your success as a department head.

New Template

Employee Safety Rules & Ethical Behaviour Agreement Document

This template for an Employee Safety Rules & Ethical Behaviour Agreement document is designed specifically for golf clubs and among other important information includes 38 golf club specific safety rules that you can implement into your operation today. Each of these rules is designed to protect your team members while at work in your club, and to ensure that they go home safely at the end of each day.

New Template

90 Day Employee Check-In Scorecard

90-day check-ins with your new team members can be a great, highly effective tool to implement into your onboarding and performance management strategy. These types of reviews are really useful in order to increase productivity, extend employee tenure, and ultimately access the full potential of new hires at a quicker pace. When new team members are given the opportunity to weigh-in and be evaluated at around the 3-month mark, it makes it easier to unlock their full potential and see their contribution to the operation of your club much sooner. If done right, 90-day check-ins will help to transition your new hire from the “new guy” into a key performer at your club within the first 90 days on the job.

What Every Club Manager Needs To Know About Occupational Health & Safety

Simply put, safety matters! Unfortunately, all too often safety becomes a priority only after an accident has happened, and at that point it may be a little late to be compliant – sort of like closing the barn door after the horse is gone as they say. Safety also instantly becomes a priority for some club managers only when inspectors arrive at their door to follow up on a call from a disgruntled team member who is not comfortable with the level of safety being provided for them in their work environment. So, what’s that…you don’t have a safety program you say? Or the existing one that you do have is weak at best. Where do you start? Well, we’d recommend that you begin by conducting an external audit of your safety program with an outside consultant like Bill Godkin from CE Safety…right after you listen to this episode of the GIG Podcast.

Behind The Mask

One of the biggest changes COVID-19 has triggered in the world of golf club management is also one of the easiest to overlook. In very short order, the pandemic has completely reshaped how clubs interact with their members and guests. Face-to-face board meetings are out; videoconferences are in. Handshakes are out; contactless interactions are in. Crowded, bustling golf shops and shotgun starts are out; capacity limits in the restaurant and not raking bunkers are in. But one of the most significant, albeit subtle changes, is COVID-19’s near-complete eradication of a widely-used and highly effective technique for fostering member & guest engagement: “The Smile”. On this episode of The GIG Podcast, we welcome Andy Stangenberg, the Founder & CEO of Q-Principle to talk about how to deliver “Service With A Smile” in the age of COVID-19.

Don’t worry, there is already lots of content for you to consume inside GIG. Content creation will always be our #1 priority as we continue to grow. At GIG, we’ll regularly update the website and add new material often so your content library will always be growing too.

Not only can you ask questions and get advice, support, and feedback anytime from within our community, but we also host live Q&A sessions where you can pre-submit your questions for James & Scott or even ask them live. On top of that, we also have a private coaching section in the community, where you can get private support and feedback from just James & Scott.

It’s time for you to take action. Simple as that. If you really want to have a successful, profitable golf club business then you need somewhere to get answers to all your questions, especially the ones you don’t know you have yet.

No – your membership entitles you to enter the members area and access the content there released prior to and during the duration of your membership. If you cancel or do not renew your membership you will no longer be able to access the content inside GIG.

You sure can! You can upgrade to an annual membership anytime with a couple of clicks on your account page. Our system will automatically take into account the time left on your current subscription, so you’ll never be double charged either.

Not only can you ask questions and get advice, support, and feedback anytime from within our community, but we also host live Q&A sessions where you can pre-submit your questions for James & Scott or even ask them live.

If there’s anything at all you’re not certain about, or if there’s anything we haven’t made clear, please send your questions or concerns to us at hello@golfindustryguru.com and we’ll help you out.

How We Can Help

KEEP SCROLLING IF ANY OF
THIS SOUNDS FAMILIAR…

KEEP SCROLLING IF ANY OF THIS SOUNDS FAMILIAR…

Your Revenues Are Down!

Rounds are down and discounting has become the go-to sales strategy in your area. Your staff think that upselling a guest is rude, and your salesperson is actually your banquet manager because who can afford a salesperson.

Your Costs Are Up!

Minimum wage keeps going up, along with the price of ‘everything’! More regulations, more guest expectations, and more capital requirements means that managing your expenses has become more important than what you should be doing… shaking hands, kissing babies, and making more money.

You Don’t Have Enough Time!

You’re struggling to stay on top of the seemingly endless list of tasks you need to handle in a day, and you’re not enjoying work as much as you used to. The demands on your time seem like they are always increasing, and it’s leaving you much less time to engage and train your staff. ​

Your Membership Is Not Growing!

You have a great golf course, but business isn’t going as well as you’d like, and you’re out of ideas on how to attract new golfers and keep them coming back. Plus, the new millennials don’t join stuffy and boring clubs. They come from the share economy where renting is preferred to owning and they know that they can always access great tee times whenever they want.

You Have Trouble Finding and Keeping Staff!

You’ve spent countless hours trying to recruit and train your team members, and you’re sick of the frustration of not being able to find and keep great staff to take care of your members and guests. Employees seem to want more days off, less expectations, and time to check their Instagram every ten minutes. What happened to hard work?

You Have Trouble Training Staff!

When you do hire new staff, who has the time and dollars to dedicate to training them properly? Too often its simply training by fire, and a rookie employee often learns from the longest serving employee, not from the best trainer. Plus, your training process is following a checklist or reading a manual, which is much less effective since young people learn better by watching videos.

You Have Outdated and Out-Regulated Documents!

Is it possible that the last time your club’s training and operations manuals were created it was on a typewriter? Does the Health and Safety manual sit on a shelf collecting dust? Government regulations, employee do’s and don’ts, and mostly your club’s legal liabilities seem to change each and every year, and it’s critical that you and your team stays abreast of what these changes are.

You Struggle with Too Much Stress and Not Enough Life Balance!

Do you find that you no longer get a chance to do some of the things that got you into the business in the first place? Playing golf, travel, researching new menus and new ideas? It’s no secret that increasing stress at work can have negative consequences on our health, happiness and overall wellness.

You Want to Make More Money!

As an owner you (and your bank) want more profits. As a manager you likely want a higher wage, a bigger bonus, or career advancement. We love this business, but we still have rent to pay and mouths to feed. More money means more freedom. Nothing wrong with that.

THAT’S WHAT INSPIRED US TO
CREATE AND BUILD GIG!

The GOLF BUSINESS is a GREAT BUSINESS, but we are tired of hearing stories about good people with an awesome golf course, just like you, struggling to train staff, grow their revenues and make money.  Too many owners and operators tell us they feel stuck in their pursuit of golf industry success.

With GIG, we think we can help! 

WITH GIG YOU CAN...

Build an operation you love that generates predictable and recurring revenue, allowing you to achieve your budget goals and the success you’ve been striving for.

Attract more customers and keep them engaged and involved in your business, so that they stick around and continue to choose your club instead of the other options they have.

Eliminate the guesswork so that you stop throwing stuff at the wall and hoping something sticks. GIG gives you tested and proven systems and procedures to follow.

Finally get to grips with building and managing the HR side of your business – saving you hours of frustration and allowing you to find, develop and retain ‘ROCKSTARS’ to take care of your guests.

Tap into the collective knowledge & experience of a community of golf industry leaders and experts who are there to support one another and you too.

Become infinitely better at managing your business and leading your people on a day-to-day basis, so that you generate more revenue, reduce expenses, have more time, and far less stress.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT US

Well of course WE think we’re awesome – it would be a bit concerning if we didn’t LOL! But don’t just take our word for it, check out this sample of nice things your fellow golf industry leaders are saying about us…

Joining GIG Was One Of The Best Decisions I've Made!

I can’t say enough good things about Golf Industry Guru!  I’m working my way through all of the Courses, Podcasts, Webinars, Templates & Articles that GIG provides and really loving it!  Joining GIG was one of the best decisions I’ve made to help my team and our business prosper in a long time!

Kendall Keeley
General Manager, Avon Valley Golf & Country Club

This is exactly what the industry needed, kudos!

I just glanced through the GIG website and wow, there is so much material, it's incredible. I am really excited to go over all the videos, podcasts, courses, etc.  This is exactly what the industry needed, kudos!

Justine Blouin
Director of Operations, Club de Golf Casselview Golf & CC

You've Definitely Found A Niche!

I think your concept is very good.  Given what is currently happening, your pricing certainly is an advantage and is within the reach of any club or individual.  You have definitely created a niche product that isn't available in the market today with the variety of platforms and offerings available.

Brad Burgart
GM & COO, Capilano Golf & CC - #8 Club in Canada

The Very Best Platform!

We are lucky to have a culture of Personal and Professional development with our team.  Online learning is a cornerstone for us to spark new ideas and discussion.  Golf Industry Guru has created the very best platform to deliver world-class golf and business content in an easy-to-use way.  Earning points and tracking as you learn is such a great idea to stay motivated and see how the team is progressing.

Slade King
COO, Play Golf Calgary & PGA Executive Professional of the Year

This Is The Future!

The thing I like most about GIG is the ability to offer training that is convenient for our employees to ensure the training actually takes place. We have found this to be particularly important with millennial team members and part-time line level staff. In addition, the ability for managers to track employee participation and engagement is imperative for consistency. As the world continues to become more and more digital this type of training is the future.

John McNair
VP, Golf Operations - JC Resorts

Instead, by using technology and innovation, GIG can be your trusted advisor and help you and your team achieve your most ambitious business goals and objectives for less than $9 per person per month.

We believe in giving back to our members, our community, and our industry!  Exclusive to children of golf industry workers, and generously supported by our team of Guru's, our annual GIG scholarships will benefit aspiring scholars from around the world.
