foreUP Sponsors Golf Business Secrets Radio Podcast
Lindon, UT – Golf Business Secrets Radio, a new podcast sponsored by golf technology leader foreUP Golf Software, launched their most recent episode focused on strategies for getting courses through the economic impacts of the COVID crisis April 9.
Golf Business Secrets Radio Podcast, which launched March 25, will be focused on topics important to businesses in the golf industry, where professionals provide tactics on how to keep business thriving in a challenging economy. Each episode is aimed at helping and advising the golf management community with interviews held with industry experts.
The fourth episode of Golf Business Secrets Radio Podcast will drop on April 15, and new episodes will be released every Wednesday.
“I started Golf Business Secrets Radio because I felt like there was a serious lack of information in the industry that benefits the club and course owner and operator,” says Ryan Petersen, Host of the Golf Business Secrets Radio podcast. “I want this podcast to be a valuable resource. I’m bringing on professionals and doing research that benefits the owners and operators and helps them find the answers to golf business success.”
In the third episode, industry professionals from Hermitage Golf Course in Nashville, TN discuss how to keep courses open and business going while adapting to social distancing. Chris Pierce, Director of Golf Head/Pro and Ashley Cottrell, President of Hermitage Golf Course, provide insight on how they took action and changed course regulations early enough to succeed during the current pandemic.
Cottrell and Pierce explain how adjustments can be made that won’t jeopardize business and keep people safe. The podcast also points out how taking action immediately, as soon as the crisis occurs, is the key to pivoting businesses toward the right direction.
Providing alternative payment options
Businesses can prepare and take precautions first thing by allowing the option to pay and make reservation check-ins all online.
Switching POS sales outside
When allowing transactions, services such as purchasing food, beverages, or merchandise should be moved outside and secluded in terms of how the routine is handled. Groups must also be kept at the required limit.
Prioritizing important roles
Certain tasks should take a higher rank when facing the impacts of an economic crisis. This implies how business can continue to operate, but the roles of an employee may need to include monitoring social gatherings and limit the number of people so they can keep facilities safe. Consistent cleaning procedures should also be a priority, as businesses practice consistent health measures to ensure all equipment is washed, sterilized, and dried before using.
Petersen says that—when it comes to the impacts of the coronavirus—businesses must act quickly and be ready to adapt. foreUP hopes the podcast will continue to provide valuable information to courses looking to thrive through the economic crisis, and beyond.
