CGCS Recommended Salaries

Following a periodic review there have recently been some positive changes to the structure of the Committee for Golf Club Salaries.

The Committee intends to build on its excellent heritage and build and increase its profile within the golf industry. Alignment is key, whereby it will be essential in developing and enhancing its impact on more Golf Clubs. Although we are in the early stages of learning how to bring broader value to Golf Clubs our goal is to continue to solidify and extend our expertise and knowledge throughout the golf industry.

The Committee firmly believes that valued professional staff members are critical for golf clubs to perform. Our emphasis will be on the long term, and we feel that a different approach needs to be adopted to allow CGCS to have a significant influence on the future standards and professionalism of the industry.

Accordingly, we want to share with you our initial decisions to deliver improved value:

· Inviting a broader range of governing bodies to align with CGCS.

· Increase the profile of CGCS with a co-ordinated communications strategy

· Focus relentlessly on the key goal of supporting vibrant and healthy golf clubs.

· Focus on the trends that will affect the future employment challenges for Golf Clubs.
