I don't know how many of the esteemed members are Golfers or hold office on a Golf committee or Club finance committee?
As I am a Workshop Manager (24yrs now) for an upmarket Country Club I would like to touch base on an equipment level (machinery, etc.) and perhaps start up a blog on the topic?
I have witnessed the demise of a few clubs from an equipment perspective and have seen many clubs building a "scrapyard" of old equipment. I fully understand where this comes from, the fact that equipment is a "Grudge purchase", it constantly depreciates, costs major capital in maintenance and repairs, and then dies. Because the age is extended it can no longer be traded against newer equipment, and the scrapyard begins to grow.
Hopefully this post has whet an appetite or two? Would anyone like to get into a discussion over this and related topics?
