Budget Considerations for Golf’s New Normal

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.

What’s Your New Normal?

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 and COVID-19

At IGM, our agronomic professionals work hard to maintain healthy, attractive, and environmentally appropriate golf courses for our clients year-round. In times of emergency, we stay in daily contact with clients to ensure we are meeting their needs as situations change. During the COVID 19 pandemic, some golf courses are seeing an increase in business, while some in resort areas are facing cancelled rounds as people forego travel.

Spotlight: Jon Dodds, West Coast Regional Manager

IGM West Coast Regional Manager Jon Dodds has always known he wanted to work outdoors. At age 13, he took up golfing, and his pleasure in the game has never waned. Though his adolescent goal was to be a professional golfer, in college he turned his attention to turf management. That decision has kept Dodds on golf courses and working outside ever since.

Outsourcing Golf Course Maintenance to Reduce Expenses

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.

Golf Courses and the Environment

IGM has golf course maintenance contracts in various regions of the country, so they have demonstrated expertise in managing different climate, seasonal, and water conditions. As Gano says, “Golf courses are – or should be – beautiful, natural environments, and many of us are in the business because of our love for the outdoors and agriculture.”
