Before long we will be full throttle into the golf season! I hope that you have all had a chance to develop your plan for the season, including its execution and a way to measure your success. Your Section Board has developed the Business Plan for 2018. Our goals are clear and we will be able to measure their success throughout the year. We will then report on those goals at our meeting at the Merchandise Show this fall in October.

Our Section is part of the early registration for PGA Jr League this year and you can sign up and register as early as this month! We have seen so much success in our Section with this program, partly because the board and staff have made it a goal to grow each year. However, the main reason for its success it because YOU have utilized this program to grow the game and enhance the revenue at your facility. Thank you, and please continue to use this program to grow this great game and enhance your position at your facility. It’s so rewarding to see these kids enjoy golf, and when they do you get the parents engaged as well. It’s a win-win all the way around!

Chapter Pro-Members will be starting this month and our Section events are right around the corner. Get your game in shape and make an effort to play in your Chapter events. You and your teams’ participation in Pro-Members is the lifeblood of your Chapter operations. Without the revenue from those events, your Chapter can’t operate. Please plan on playing in more events this year than you did last year. Work on your game, promote golf at your facility and teach everyone you can how to play better and enjoy the game more! It’s at the core of what we do and we can all make the game better.

My club installed a simulator this past November. I can’t tell you enough how successful and beneficial it is for your members and customers to continue to be engaged even when the weather isn’t conducive. If you or your facility is considering doing a project like this, I would be happy to share my experience and great success to date with this addition. It’s been amazing! Better yet, grab your clubs and stop on by and I’ll show you first-hand how cool it is!

Enjoy your spring and if I can be of any help to you please don’t hesitate to ask.
