GMA Benchmarking Report – Golf Operations

The Golf Operations department is the operating heart of most golf clubs. It is also the area of club operations where the most differences can be found in terms of structure, allocations and financial reporting.

This report therefore focuses on the operational outcomes that emanate from this department, providing some headline measures for a number of key elements within golf operations.

The report, provided by Jeff Blunden from GBAS, presents a number of immediate benchmarks for reference within your own operations, including:

  • Totals & mix of rounds played
  • Member rounds and effective cost per member round
  • Public green fee premiums
  • Golf cart revenues and utilization
  • Operations structure
  • Wage cost
  • Golf shop retail spending

It is hoped that the provision of the benchmarks within this report helps to inform you of the current results being achieved across the wider industry and cause you to reflect upon the outcomes that you are achieving at your club.

Analysis within the benchmarking tool is available on more concise member counts, subscription levels and total revenues.
