Following last summers heatwave and the ensuing problems that many golf courses have encountered we would encourage clubs to attend this session to gain an understanding of how they should be managing their disaster /emergency plans and ensure members are aware of the procedures should a crisis occur.
Having discussed the effect of a course fire, how do you deal with the extreme storms or hurricanes that reach our shoires and the effect of floods or electrical blackouts? Alternatively your club could be subject to an outbreak of food poisoning – the golf club industry is not immune to any of these issues.Are you prepared to ahndle a crisis if and when should arise? Are your employees prepared to act professionally and efficiently during a crisis?
Protect yourself, your employees, the club and its members by having a plan in place to encounter any crisis that might occur. Don’t just react to a problem… prepare for the unexpected.
