March 2016 - Club and Resort Business

The Bold New Club Concept at Hageman Reserve

The only hint of golf at this Texas property is the owners’ and staff’s drive to make it “the Augusta of sporting clubs.”

Affinity For All

Pretty much any lure that’s thrown into the pond to first attract the interest of existing and potential members, and then securely hooks them, usually brings in something worthwhile.

Golf for Life

Golf is a game for life, and men and women with a penchant for athletics and competition will be drawn back to the game sooner or later if they learned it early on.

Fully Furnished

For club and resort properties that want to create a warm atmosphere conducive to socializing, interior furnishings aren’t just pretty to look at—they’re a must for doing business.

Cultivating Effective Turf Strategies

Club and resort properties are improving the conditions and playability of their golf courses with major regrassing projects.

Food Trucks Get On a Roll

Instead of requiring members and guests to come to the food, some clubs and resorts now have tricked-out vehicles that can bring creative and top-quality cuisine to any spot on the property.

Standout Summer

With a variety of public and private summer camp offerings available throughout the country, clubs are tasked with building an engaging program that stands out.

Equal Opportunity

A new youth golf program created by Sun City Country Club takes golf’s lessons and brings them to where the kids are: schools.
