Golf Course Review and Analysis
a Site Visit and Review Here
found many smaller golf course operations like nine-hole courses,
municipal courses, and country courses could not afford high-dollar
experts to review, analyze and make recommendations to improve, sell or lease
their golf course businesses. Unfortunately, they are the golf
courses that need me the most and the clubs I feel I can help
the most. I enjoy the work so much in the last few last years
I decided to reduce the fee to an affordable level - only $2,500.00 plus expenses (see choices below).
In the past few years I've sat in with the board of directors,
private owners, bankers, lenders, and potential buyers.
My basic fee
for an analysis is $2,500.00, ($3,150.00 if Golfmak pays travel and accommodation, $3,350.00 if Golfmak pays ground transportation and/or auto rental) plus expenses for a complete financial
review, document review, leases, agreements, member docs, plus
an all-day site review visit (3-day turnaround with travel). At
site I meet with owners or boards. I deliver my written report
and recommendations in less than 10-days. I must physically view
the golf course and its market area to make an effective analysis.

I LOOK FOR
COURSE SITE ANALYSIS $2,500.00 - A TYPICAL ASSIGNMENT COMPLETED
IN 3 DAYS including travel. A Golfmak Golf Course Review includes
a brief written report delivered by fax or Email.
WRITTEN REPORT :
A written report will be delivered within 10 days of an on-site
review. Our analysis and cash flow projections are accepted by
major golf course lending sources.
TIME: Allow up to fifteen-days advance notice to confirm a
Golfmak assignment. Shorter lead times will be accommodated when
OF FEES: NEW: As many clubs that
need my kind of service are strapped for cash, I offer a split
payment plan: $1,500 up front upon booking the assignment, the
balance of $1,000 upon delivery of the written report.
I require evidence of fully paid travel, site transportation,
and accommodation (if overnight is required) confirmation before
an assignment is confirmed. All fees are paid via PayPal.
USEFUL: I guarantees to provide a reasonable and useful
service to you and your golf facility. If you are unsatisfied
with my work, please demand refund of my fee (excluding travel
and accommodation) before I leave the premises. Your $2,500.00
will be returned immediately.
DO I LOOK FOR? You might be surprised at my attention
to detail - and how quickly I can spot underlying problems. We
do a walk about inspection of the golf course, the maintenance
facility, maintenance equipment, and irrigation system. I review
the daily activity reporting system, the kitchen, and marketing
strategies. I review merchandising activity, tee-sheet management,
and player service practices (starters, rangers, etc.). I observe
employee habits and behavior. I conduct a local competitive analysis
(usually completed before I arrive at the site). In most cases,
because I often focus on overlooked or missed revenue or concession
opportunities, the cost of my site review can pay for itself almost
REPORT: The written report is delivered by fax or Email
within ten days. It is a candid summary of our review of the subject,
plus any recommendations I may have.
DISCLAIMER: My review and analysis of a golf course property is supported
entirely by my 50+ years experience in golf - refer to my
resume and references. My report is designed to provide a
board of directors, a bank, a golf course operator, a potential
buyer, or potential lender with an assessment of the subject golf
facility for assistance in making decisions. We will not patronize
our client, rather, we report on what we see and our dialogue
is entirely our opinion. Fees paid to Golfmak, Inc. are for time
and effort only. Client is advised to seek professional advice
in legal and accounting matters.
