I have enjoyed my visits with member clubs this past July in the Kamloops and Penticton areas; plus some visits to the Galiano Island and Lower Mainland Clubs. I look forward to visiting the Kelowna area courses later this month while also attending the BCGSA event in West Kelowna. I hope to be on Vancouver Island as well either in August or early September. One focus of my visits has been to conduct a Golfmax audit to ensure you are receiving your savings.
If I have not yet been to your facility or chatted on the phone; please take a moment to review the latest list of suppliers that offer discounts. If you do not think you are registered for a certain supplier please reach out to me immediately so I can assist in making sure this is done for you.
For those of you not yet using our Moneris credit card processing rates I urge you to send me a one-month (busy month) statement with your current processor. I have spent the last few years doing comparisons for some British Columbia members and the average savings is indeed about 15%. However I have seen some as high as 30% depending on the company that you use currently for processing at your club. This comparison info will be helpful as you possibly prepare to make some supplier changes later in the year.
I look forward to seeing many of you at our golf invitational at One Under on October 9th and some of you sooner in my travels for the rest of the summer.
P.S. Have you registered for the Golf Business Canada Conference & Trade Show yet in Calgary, November 15-17? Early bird pricing deadline is September 24. There is already a large number of British Columbia delegates represented, make sure you join your industry peers at this great event!
