Communicate with your members. The more you do, they more they will feel part of your community, and therefore the more likely the are to support it financially.
Use push notifications on the ClubV1 App – they are free, instant and seen as more important than an email – The ClubV1 Members App available as a free upgrade, until the end of 2020 to ALL CUSTOMERS!
Use the ‘Club News’ in ClubV1 to push to the App and HowDidiDo. – Not just Covid-19 but how about; * Course maintenance and upgrades, get the members excited about playing the course when it opens. * News about Members who work in the NHS or other Emergency services. * Sending a daily link to a golf youtube video, maybe a practise you can do in you garden, or a your own Pro could record a tip or trick * Encourage your members to send in their news, or videos for you to circulate.
Encourage the use of video conferencing for committee/council or board meetings. Zoom is a great tool, easy to use and FREE! Download it here
Ask the Pro or Assistant if they are willing to provide live Zoom lessons or golf fitness tips.
Keep up with social media. Make sure you encourage all of your members to follow you and retweet everything from your Greenkeeper and National bodies (and HowDidiDo and Golfalot)! Don’t get sucked in to retweeting jokes or memes, do that from your our account. People will see you communications are irrelevant if they look like everyone else’s.
Prepare for playing!!! – This pandemic will come to an end, sometime, and when it does, make sure you are ready on the starting blocks.
Are you using online booking, if not, why not? When we are allowed out of confinement, there may be restrictions still imposed, max two balls perhaps. Teetimes may be in high demand (yippy), online booking maybe the only way to offer golf in a fair, safe and orderly way! ClubV1 member and visitor booking is available as a free upgrade, until the end of 2020 to ALL CUSTOMERS!
Do you have your new course ratings and slope for WHS? Have you ordered new tee furniture and score cards? Maybe now is the time to get quotes? Deals and discounts will be out there to be had!
Thank your members for remaining loyal, members keep the game going, when the going gets tough!
