You get what you want and what you need – not what we’re trying to sell.
It’s always a buyer’s market at Foresight Golf Management. Unlike the retail world, we’re not in the business of running inventory close-outs, specials and other tricks-and-traps to get you to buy something you may or may not need. We are here to provide you with whatever services we offer that will truly benefit your golf operation.
We offer you a menu of golf management services. Whether you are considering using our full array of our services, or to choose only the services that are not your core strength - our team will help you get your golf operation headed in the right direction.
Golf Course Maintenance & Turf Care
We know golf course turf management from the ground up.
Simply put, Foresight Golf Management has more experience and technical expertise in golf course maintenance than any other management company. Foresight Golf Partner and COO Ed Miller has been responsible for golf course maintenance and operations at the best golf courses in the country, including preparing Pebble Beach for the U.S. Open and Cherry Hills Country Club for the PGA Championship. Foresight Golf Management brings this level of quality and experience to golf course conditioning for the daily fee market. Miller graduated from the famed Turfgrass Management Program at Penn State with Highest Distinction.
Our core belief lies in sound, practical agronomic programs, crafted with operational efficiencies to achieve superior results. We believe that the key to our success was — and is — that we get more results-per-dollar-invested than any organization in the business. We understand every facet of golf course maintenance, negotiating skills, solid planning and making business decisions based on our knowledge and experience.
Golf Course Operation (Entire Property)
When all is said and done, it’s still about the golf. Foresight Golf Management has a fundamental belief that even the most discerning customer is looking for an exceptional golfing experience at an outstanding value. Always has been this way; always will be this way.
Building upon great golf course conditioning with unparalleled customer service is our recipe for success. We at Foresight Golf Management know course conditioning because our people have experience at Top 100 golf courses for Major Championships and PGA Tour events. We know customer service because we have been operators of the finest resort properties in the world.
Our goal is to provide the best-conditioned golf course with impeccable customer service in each market segment. Our executive and management teams are competitive by nature and seek to provide the best value in whatever market segment our properties compete. We strive on a daily basis to provide a better experience to our golfers. To your golfers.
Employee Management (HR)
Taking care of the people who are taking care of your customers.
In the golf business, probably more than in any other, the person with seemingly the simplest of jobs is vital to the experience the customer has. From being greeted at the car or when you walk through the door, every employee has the potential to make an average day at the golf course great or horrible. At Foresight Golf Management, we've spent years developing standard operating procedures and policies that each of our courses and employees are responsible for knowing, implementing and following.
We want each golfer to have the best experience possible and know that if they're selecting to play a Foresight Golf Management course, they'll be assured of a top-flight, enjoyable experience every time out.
Taking the guesswork out of sales.
Foresight Golf Management recognizes the specialized nature of golf retail sales and merchandising. Our dedicated Retail Manager, Lacy Taylor, is solely responsible for selecting and ordering merchandise that sells in each market. She pools the collective buying power of all of the Foresight Golf properties to get the most advantageous volume pricing and terms. On an ongoing basis, Lacy provides sales training to all golf shop personnel and assists with inventory analysis and adjustment. All of these efforts lead to better sales, lower cost of goods sold and maximum profitability in retail for our clients.
Accounting & Payroll
We make the most our time – and your money.
Foresight Golf Management always has and always will apply sound business practices — along with personal integrity — in dealing with all of its properties. The financial reports we generate and use to operate, enable us to analyze business trends and make real time adjustments to strategies based upon specific market conditions. Our partners appreciate our transparent financial reporting processes that are tailored to meet, even exceed, your individualized needs.
Food & Beverage Operations
Keep the cookie cutter in the kitchen!
There’s a time and a place to use a cookie cutter. That place is in the kitchen, not in your food and beverage strategy. All too often, golf properties try to transform food and beverage operations into something they're not and, in the process, lose effectiveness and revenue.
The fundamental strategy of all the Foresight Golf Management food and beverage operations is to identify correctly what the food and beverage needs of the property are and to then meet them in a manner that creates both satisfied customers and profitable operations. Foresight Golf Management looks at each client’s food and beverage operation individually, then tailors menus and service to the property — and its customers’ needs. Whether it's the most simple and uncomplicated, on-course beverage and snack service or the proper handling of a corporate meeting, golf banquet or wedding, Foresight Golf knows how to staff, equip and prepare for any and all events and to turn new customers into repeat customers.
Teamwork is crucial to our marketing success.
Having the best product is a great start. Being able to promote this product in the marketplace is paramount to increasing golf sales and revenues. In our digital world, rest assured that drives all of our decisions. Our in-house marketing team has developed the “Foresight Golf Marketing Tree” which consists of 15 key components to drive success. Everything we do for our clients is data driven and results can be measured and marketing spends pivoted accordingly throughout the year. When you chose to partner with Foresight Golf Management, you are electing to put a powerhouse team of Digital Strategists, Cinematographers, Web Developers, Writers, Photographers, Graphic Designers and the best marketing minds behind your brand to realize success.
We use insight, experience, execution, measurability, and results unmatched in the golf, resort, real estate and travel industries. This gives us a decided industry advantage in giving you the best in lead generation and sales processes — time tested and verifiable. And yet, we in the hospitality industry admittedly realize that word-of-mouth from satisfied golfers, accolades from golf publications and surveys continues to be a stalwart of our market recognition.
You’ll want someone on your side, in your corner, listening to your concerns. That’s us.
The project manager in the golf industry plays a key role between the course owner(s) and how they deal with the construction companies, architects, irrigation company, etc.
When we play the role of Project Manager, we are your voice. Foresight Golf Management becomes your go-between, your liaison, your ally. Quite often, various contractors work together on yours and several other projects. The work is so specialized you cannot be expected to know how all of the contractors work together to accomplish the tasks at hand. They may or may not have your best interest at heart. They know your golf course is a “one of” project. The golf course owner needs representation in the construction scenario. The role of Foresight Golf Management is as a highly-specialized general contractor looking out for the best interests of the golf course owner.
We look at our role as Project Manager as our entrée’ into playing a larger, longer-lasting role in the operation of your golf course. We’d love to prove ourselves to you in the project management phase, and earn the right to continue our working relationship going forward. “I speak on behalf of you - the golf course owner(s). I’ve worked on all types of golf courses: municipal, daily fee, resort, private. From building our own golf courses, to supervising multi-million dollar renovations at resort courses, we have experience in all phases of the golf course build-to-operate.” - Ed Miller, Chief Operating Officer, Partner
