Management

Intensive assistance to secure a strong foundation for the maintenance
team and a stable future for the clubs playing surfaces.

Course Maintenance

Under the management agreement, Greg offers to undertake the agronomy and management side of the maintenance department. He sets the yearly, weekly and daily maintenance programme working in tandem with the greenkeeping team. Putting in place the right plan allows the course to meet the requirements of the membership and visitors. Having an efficient greenkeeping unit will allow these goals to be reached.

Staff Training

It is a proven fact that for any successful business to flourish, well trained and motivated staff need to be at the top of your priorities. Greg will give your staff top quality training ranging from the ride-on mower to understanding how to treat your golfers. Additionally, he can advise on how to structure a pay scale with rewards and incentives. All of this should help you to achieve a lower rate of staff turnover, increased work productivity and improved quality of work, resulting in a smoothly run golf club.

Budgeting

To have financial control of any business, a thoroughly planned budget is vital. Greg Evans recommends that clubs move away from the traditional ‘inflation-led’ method, to the newer ‘zero-based approach’. This changes the ‘spend what’s left’ mentality to an accountable process where every code is itemised and justified. Using the right procedures to achieve this is crucial in controlling costs, so you get true value for money. Greg can make this happen!

Machinery & Equipment

Your machines need to be used to their maximum potential, out working on the golf course and not sitting in the workshop! To do this, a well-planned service schedule and preventative maintenance scheme needs to be in place. At numerous courses Greg Evans has advised on this area and saved vast sums of money by implementing solid machinery plans. These plans might include updating certain pieces of equipment. Greg is experienced in dealing with the manufacturers and negotiating purchases at very competitive rates.
