Every golf course in the United States is making “every day” necessary adjustments as golf course operators adapt to a new normal within our golfing communities. As a contractor of golf course maintenance services at golfing facilities across the U.S, IGM has seen how these adjustments vary widely. One thing remains the same though - golf course maintenance costs are the largest expense item on the budget for most clubs.
Since the appearance of the Covid 19 virus, we have all seen our lives and livelihoods upended to some extent. As a golf course maintenance contractor with clients across the country, IGM has seen every course challenged in its own way. While some golf courses remained open, with new safety protocols, others closed according to area regulations. Now that parts of the Country have begun opening again, we are all facing a new normal.
Golf courses are major business investments, and the top priority for golf course owners - whether private or municipal - is to achieve financial sustainability and success. Numerous factors contribute to that goal, including golfer retention, competitive prices, appealing amenities and grounds, all while lowering costs when possible. This article focuses on how outsourcing golf course maintenance to IGM can reduce management expenses.
