Defining Decade

For C&RB's 10th Anniversary Issue, we look back at the challenges of the past ten years—and ahead at the new opportunities to come.

Ten Years After

I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts about the major changes and trends you think you’ll encounter in your jobs ten years from now.

Pop-Up Events Attract Diners and Dollars

A recent survey conducted by Eventbrite shows that pop-up dining events are good business for hotels and resorts, reported Elaine Yetzer Simon for Hotel Management magazine. The third-party online platform for event organizers surveyed more than 2,000 attendees of pop-up dinners last year and found that these events attract guests who are willing and eager to pay more for a unique dining experience.

Golfing on Mars

Iceland is a mostly desolate, treeless, lava field where absolutely nothing is growing. Other parts are a little more physically hospitable, but mostly, it’s Mars. But here is the shocker: Golf is the number-one sport in Iceland.

Swinging Into Action

A remodeled tennis facility with ample seating and a layout for all skill sets is a win-win for Kenosha (Wis.) CC members and management.

Honor Society

On March 10 at San Antonio (Texas) Country Club, the 2014 recipients of the Excellence in Club Management Awards were honored during a special reception, dinner and ceremony.

Hawaiian Paradise

The staff and developers of Kohanaiki, a private community in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, have gone to great lengths to preserve the integrity of the land and the culture of the people who came before them. Fittingly, the 18-hole golf course is the crown jewel of the state’s first Audubon International Silver Signature Program property.

Living the GreatLife

A new model that combines golf and fitness memberships at extremely affordable rates is proving to be an especially attractive mix of recreational offers.

Fair-Weather Fare

As menus grow more refined, so must dining spaces, prompting many club properties to expand the reach of food-and-beverage service to patios and terraces.

Savannah Showcase

Sessions on sous vide, ethnic fusion, banquet preparation and more kept attendees engaged at a sold-out event that even attracted Forrest Gump.
