Driving Green Fee Revenues

Green fee revenues have increasingly grown in importance for golf businesses in the UK over the last decade. Where once clubs could afford to focus purely on membership, this target audience is shrinking – leaving a hole in many clubs finances.

Many ‘Pay & Play’ businesses are also suffering from increased competition, inclement weather and wider economic conditions that have squeezed the consumer’s leisure pound.

This “Driving Green Fee Revenues” course examines the key strategies employed by successful clubs today in driving their green fee revenue.
