In order to have a successful and long lasting golf course, you must always protect your key resource- the course itself. In order to keep any business relevant you have to be willing and able to continuously reinvest and renovate to accommodate the times and keep your clients loyal and interested in your particular course. This is not as difficult or costly as it may sound, especially if your original design budgeted for periodic updates.
Working with an experienced golf architect, such as Jeffrey D. Brauer, in the beginning of your course design will help you in developing a long term renovation budget that allows for updates and changes. Below are a list of reasons for you to update your course design:
Outdated: Nothing is an exception from the age of time, including golf courses. Especially when you take into consideration how much of a golf course is made up of organic, living plants, grasses, and trees. This makes them especially susceptible to corrosive effects brought on by time and usage. All irrigation, drainage, and greenery come with an expiration date and will need to be serviced regularly and eventually replaced in order to continue functioning.
Staying Relevant: To keep your clients loyal and also to engage new clients, you are going to need to stay competitive through updates and changes. Golf courses who take the initiative to invest in their course and update it will see the benefit when they look at their profits.
Tech Savvy: Technology is evolving at such a rapid rate that if you go more than 10 years without updating your systems you are living FAR in the past. There are many new groundbreaking solutions and updated options that have made it easier than ever to care for your golf course.
Sustainability: Sustainability is a topic we have covered previously because it goes a long way in ensuring you have a design that will last and continue to profit. Whenever you are working with a knowledgeable golf architect they can help you balance your design in a way that achieves environmental, economical, and social sustainability.
