As your temporary or interim General Manager I oversee the club's entire operations until your permanent GM situation is resolved. There is absolutely no part of a golf course operation - Private, Semi-private, or Public - I cannot supervise. (My Resume)

BUSINESS PLAN

  • If the club has been wandering financially with lack of direction, I will work with ownership, or the board of directors to create a business plan for the future. As most golf courses in 2009 are experiencing financial, deferred, and redundancy issues, they may need a focused business plan to guide the decision processes.
  • A proper business plan will address all the above issues and the asset to assist in making day-to-day and longer term decisions like:
    • Membership Strategies
    • Marketing Strategies
    • Contingency Strategies
    • Financing Strategies

Start with a Free Consultation. We'll set up a conference call with the Board of Directors, the Banker, or the Owner.

COST

You will be pleasantly surprised at the cost to your club to bring Mike Kahn aboard as your temporary GM. For instance, Bankers pay management companies up to $20,000 a month to 'supervise' their assets. Then the management company sends young management trainees to manage the asset.

My fees are nowhere near what management companies charge, because I have virtually no overhead. You have 100% of the experience you need with me on site. My fees range from $5,000 to $10,000 a month. Each club is different in terms of workload. I will quote you immediately during our first conference.
