Every golf course should have both business and budgeting plans that account for routine and long-term needs to ensure its long-term success. The biggest operating expense at most clubs is the golf course maintenance infrastructure. Golf course maintenance is our business at IGM, and we have years of budgeting experience to meet any clients’ distinctive needs.
IGM and the town of South Hadley, Massachusetts have established a positive partnership in The Ledges Golf Club since 2005. The Howard Maurer designed golf course was built in 2001, and its maintenance was outsourced to IGM four years later. Through the mutual trust that developed, IGM was contracted to provide complete management services for The Ledges Golf Club, beginning January, 2019.
When honey bees made themselves at home, building colonies at The Ledges Golf Club and Chicopee Country Club, the South Hadley and Chicopee, Massachusetts communities welcomed them. International Golf Maintenance, which provides maintenance services for both golf courses, knew just how to keep them safe.
In early 2019, the opportunity arose for IGM, Reflection Bay’s maintenance contractor, to build a golfing practice facility on a nearby green space in the Lake Las Vegas community. The new practice facility was designed to renovate four remaining holes from the former course (The Falls) to create a driving range, along with practice holes, greens, and bunkers.
When the Directors of Ludlow Country Club in western Massachusetts became concerned about a downward trend in membership, they had only to look at nearby golf courses being maintained by IGM to see the problems with Ludlow’s playing appeal. In turn, they recently signed a five-year contract with IGM to restore the golf course to a higher standard.
The IGM leadership team has years of experience in the game of golf, business of golf, and maintenance operations of golf courses. We work hard. We continue to learn and train our staff in proven techniques. We love what we do. And we love to see our client golf courses thrive.
Contracting for professional maintenance services and course management may appear to be a luxury, but with International Golf Maintenance, it is an investment that delivers a positive return (ROI).
To add value to our clients, we are now offering a spectrum of golf course business management services including accounting and IT services, payroll, landscape maintenance, and more!
