Strategic Planning

Purpose Driven. Integrated. Systematic. Dynamic.

Just as the broader world is rapidly and profoundly changing so is the world of private clubs. Today's golf and country club members have higher expectations and different needs from those who came before.

Given significant demographic changes within club memberships and the dramatic increase in competition both within the industry itself and with almost endless alternative forms of leisure and entertainment, the need for strategic planning is greater than ever.

Club leaders must look deeper to determine how to position their facility in the market and to ensure its long-term viability and financial sustainability. A service culture must be developed that not only attracts members but also makes them feel welcome, important, comfortable, and understood. A narrative must be employed that propels excitement, interest, and opportunity for members, customers, staff, managers, and all stakeholders.

That's where RCS comes in. We are masterful creators of plans that build on existing strengths, mitigate weaknesses, anticipate future threats and opportunities, and help you blend 21st century management approaches with the timeless values that are at the heart of the private club experience.
