Management turnover within a golf club can be a serious, (and in many cases), chronic problem.
Why? Because after 3-4 turns of a General Manager the club’s reputation gets tarnished and no decent candidate will then touch the job with “a 10 foot pole”.
A common cause of GM turnover occurs when committees/board members “run amok” with management responsibilities.
Here’s how the tale unfolds.
A board or committee is made up of “A-type” personalities who excel in their respective jobs yet have absolutely no clue on how to run a golf club. They hire a new manager without giving him/her much help or clear guidelines. Eventually the GM finds himself in a power struggle with one of the committee members…a battle the manager almost always loses typically with walking papers in-hand.
Moral of this story…when a Club Manager is hired he should have free reign to run the club as he sees fit. The new manager should be able to flex his “strategic muscle” based on his experience and knowledge. A disgruntled or ego bruised board member has no place in a manager’s decision making process!
