May Tip for Course Managers: My "Ten Discoveries" to help course operators improve your product!

May Tip for Course Managers: My

 

For decades I've been discovering the truths about what we call slow play - its causes and cures. In this May Tip of the Month I'll share with you "Ten Discoveries" that will help course operators rid your courses of slow play and increase revenue.

 

My Ten Discoveries!

 

1. For most courses, the 4-hour round is a myth.

2. Waiting causes more long round times than players do.

3. More sand and water hazards DO NOT equal slower rounds.

4. Each golf course has a finite capacity and an optimal flow.

5. New thinking and a willingness to change is the key to success and improvement.

6. Success should be measured by maximizing revenue, NOT by the number of rounds.

7. To maximize revenue, begin by increasing the perceived "value" of the playing experience.

8. A well-trained management team at any course can markedly improve and sustain a smooth flowing pace of play that adds quality and value to your product.

9. Every course has Five Major Factors™ that impact the pace of play - all must be understood and addressed.

10. Day in and day out, we have to "manage" our courses, not just take reservations!
