On site visit schedules can be reduced or expanded to suit a facilities needs and budget. This may include the removal of some areas of the business if one or more areas of the operation is leased out, or it may also include working with the leased operations as well as with the golf course’s own staff. 

CK Golf has conducted site visits at various types of golf facilities – public, private, resort, 9 hole and multi-course. Having all team members focus on the operation for a short-but intensive amount of time has proven to be very effective. One of the keys to success has been accountability and the follow-up that we provide to help keep the Management Team on track with their goals after the visit.
