At GolfRescues, we have the experience and the track record to dig into your neighborhood golf course and find those areas where we can show how to improve efficiencies, reduce costs, and generate more revenues. A healthy golf course means a healthy neighborhood. Our consultants – Mike Kahn, Bill McIntosh, and Cameron White – have a combined 150 years of experience in the business of golf, including: 


• Golf course operations 

• Environmental impacts 

• Clubhouse food and beverage operations 

• Pro shop operations 

• Working with HOAs and POAs 

• Working with municipal governments

• Golf-related real estate issues.

 

Over the years, we have worked with more than 70 golf course owners, including HOAs, and municipalities throughout North America. That means we’ve seen (and resolved) practically every challenge a golf course or country club can face. Clearly, our team has the knowledge and experience to offer effective, workable solutions to the challenges you face. We look forward to helping you get there!

#1. Experience

The GolfRescues team brings over 150 years of hands-on golf and residential course business experience to the rescue. GolfRescues team members, Mike Kahn, Bill McIntosh, and Cameron White have the necessary know-how to analyze any type of neighborhood golf course – private, semi-private, public –  anywhere in North America. 


Every golf course development is different. Therefore, strategies that solved one neighborhood may not work for another. Communities need all the facts before taking any course of action. The GolfRescues team of Mike, Bill, and Cameron will gather and put all the information in front of your community feasibility committee so an informed strategy can be planned and implemented. 


Our goal is always to save beautiful golf course communities from unnecessarily failing – especially when there are ways to preserve them now – forever.

#2. Analyze

You need information before any course of action can be taken.

 

Remember, every golf course community is different. The type, age, and components of the golf course, the number of residences bordering the golf course fairways, area residential real estate property values, and the average age of the community residents are just some of the variables. Our analysis will make everything clear.


We conduct a complete expert analysis of the golf course, its neighborhood, its marketplace, its management behavior.  We carefully review its financial statements and P&Ls. Our physical review is thorough. We especially learn its relationship with the neighborhood. 


Once we have a clear picture of the current condition of the golf course and its neighborhood we can recommend appropriate strategies.

#3. Plan a Sensible Course of Action

 

Once the GolfRescues team has completed its golf course and neighborhood analysis we prepare a report that may include recommendations. Keep in mind that a strategy that may have been successful for one neighborhood may not work for another. The strategy for your neighborhood will be unique to your particular set of circumstances. 


That’s what GolfRescues will help you accomplish. You cannot plan without the proper information. 


START WITH A FEASIBILITY COMMITTEE


The solution begins with the formation of a feasibility committee. This committee must be made up of ordinary neighborhood homeowners – golfers and non-golfers. Often apparent is the disagreement between the golfers and non-golfers. Our job is to help all parties address a mutual interest, the value and integrity of the entire neighborhood. 

  

The GolfRescues team approach is to help establish a golf course community permanently by eliminating uncertainty. After all, the value of your residential property depends on a certain and secure future. If our advice is followed successfully, the neighborhood can go on with life for generations without fear of losing property value because the golf course is failing. 


SHORT-TERM SOLUTIONS ONLY PROLONG THE HEARTACHE 


Communities may try to solve the failing backyard golf course problem with a band-aid strategy that is only temporary. Hoping some white knight will come by and buy the golf course and run it successfully is not the answer. History indicates that there is up to a 75% chance of failure due to a lack of knowledge and understanding among many golf course investors. Therefore, it may take only five years before the heartaches start all over again. A  GolfRescues proposed solution will be designed to be fail-safe so your neighborhood can endure virtually forever. 


Working with your homeowner’s association (HOA) to help plan a long, secure, and worry-free future is our mission.
