Having now completed my second month here in Management here is an update of tasks completed and tasks ahead.
With the assistance of Damian Franzmann (Bar, Functions & House Manager) we have now successfully completed loading our stock bar items into our Point of Sale System. Following our manual stock take on 1st April we will then enter the exact stock levels and review our pricing structure.
Creative catering has commenced for a three months trial with a members survey to be conducted to review opening hours, range of food & pricing.
As from Friday 15th March 2019 we have introduced a weekly Members Night which includes $20 meal Special, Happy Hour, and a Chase the Ace promotion starting at $2000.
Due to our high stock range of wines we have introduced a Wine Discount Sale at cost plus 10% to help cashflow.
Presently we are updating all the trophy engraving and Honour Boards as some are quite out of date.
On working with the Match Committee we hosted a very successful Summer Cup (319 entries) and looking at a successful Opening Day sponsored by John Port.
A package promoted to members to sponsor a golf day for $150 has been well received with ten (10) days being sponsored to date.
It has been encouraging to receive great feedback on the updated information on our website. Members to be educated to continue looking at the website and notice boards to keep up to date with events.
On Tuesday 12th March 2019 a meeting was held with the City of Kalamunda representatives over the driving range risk factor of golf balls landing in the new hockey fields. A positive outcome was reached with City of Kalamunda to discuss with their insurers the risk factor. Following that meeting an overview of the Clubs operations was discussed with promotion of the club on their Facebook of membership and golfing availability was agreed.
- Things to be done in the next month:
- Senior Amateur Championship – 3rd-5th April
- Pro-AM Sponsorship/ Teams – 17th May
- Membership Drive
- Tee Signage
- It is of great concern that our Cash position is seriously low and unless the membership drive and members usage of the clubhouse increases, we will struggle to grow as rapidly as hoped.
However I’m sure with the feedback I am receiving from members, we will meet this challenge.
