Player Development Revenue Workshops - Sponsored by Club Car / Jerry Pate

Please join us for the Player Development Revenue Workshop with Bob Baldassari, PGA.  We are happy to have the Jerry Pate Company & Club Car partner with us to provide these workshops at no charge to our section members.  They are a tremendous learning opportunity.  The sentiment from fellow PGA members and apprentices in other Sections is this Workshop takes a different and fresh way to help you add value to your golf facility.

These workshops are interactive , a fun environment and are designed to encourage collaboration amongst your staff, generate new ideas, inspire stories of success and provide every day applications that will benefit your golf operation and the overall happiness of your customers and employees.

Topics that will be cover include:

  • The importance of identifying and understanding operating analysis (Player Development Math and Revenue Scorecards) #knowyourPGAProvalue
  • Implementation strategies for key revenue drivers  #getpeopleonthetee
  • Identifying the consumer life cycle (from non-golfer to avid golfer) #golferpathway
  • Instruction as a business for creating customers, growing rounds and generating incremental revenue at the facility #howtoputmore$$$inyourpocket
  • Developing and implementing instruction products that meet consumer needs #helppeopleconsumegolf

Bob Baldassari, a 25-year PGA member, is the Director of Youth Golf Development for the PGA of America.  He will lead these workshops as he has done in many other PGA Sections. Prior to joining the PGA of America staff, Bob was in the Middle Atlantic Section where he was a long time PGA Head Golf Professional and an Officer for their Board of Directors.  Bob has an incredible enthusiasm for the game, an infectious personality that wins over the room, and a wealth of knowledge that always leaves you begging for more information.
