A Strategic Approach to Membership Growth When Re-Opening Your Club after COVID-19

10 Tips to Gain Members during your Club Re-Opening

Make no mistake: The world of private clubs will never be the same again. Just as 9/11 changed how the world flys, the COVID -19 pandemic will change how members enjoy their leisure time. These changes will extend to how individuals commute, enter your club, interact with others, manage tasks, and more. In a post COVID-19 world, private clubs not only have to be safe, it has to be “clean and assured.”

We have identified ten broad topics that clubs and other organizations can use to grow their membership and usage as they re-open for business:

  1. Take Advantage of the Itch

Everyone is itching to get out and golf. Now more than ever your members will be out taking advantage of the beautiful weather and the ability to golf at their club. They will be more inclined to bring their friends who do not have a club to go to on their own. This is a perfect opportunity to interact and gather information of the potential member(s).

  1. Communicate to your Neighbors

It is a good time to reach out to your neighbors. Your external outreach to those who reside around the club that you may have had paused since March should be back up and in full force. Now is the best time to let them know why being a part of your club is the best choice for them and their family.

  1. Pull out from the archives – Member Referral Plan

Have a membership referral plan that is your ACE? Now is the time to use it! Your members miss their friends and family who are most always their golfing buddies. Use it to your advantage!

  1. Engage with the Membership

Remind your members why they love their course so much. Do something a little extra to show them you miss them just as much; nothing says that better than a complimentary transfusion station at the turn!

  1. Internal Communications

It is vital to stay connected to your members and let them know your revised plans for “golfing with precaution”. If they know what to expect before they get to the course there will be less confusion and unhappy members in the golf shop.

  1. A United Message

Come together as a team and create the message that you want to portray to the membership. This is where upbeat optimism is needed. Remember as a club you want to be the place your members go to escape reality “pandemic” don’t make it the topic of conversation.

  1. Operations Plan

Although you may be running on a tightened budget or not have as many staff members as you normally would; come up with a strategic plan to make sure there are no holes in your operations.

  1. Retention

Believe it or not, how you react in these next couple months are going to directly affect your retention rates. Anything you do to enhance the member experience during this time will be talked about for years to come… so will what you don’t do as well!

  1. Follow The Golf & Heath Project, supported by the World Golf Foundation safety guidelines for Clubs and players:

Coronavirus [COVID-19] Update | Golf & Health

Message to Golf Clubs and Management

·    Organize online booking to reduce congregation around the Clubhouse

·    Allow shoes to be changed in the car park

·    Follow general hygiene advice and e.g. make hand sanitizers available in the clubhouse

·    Golf buggies should be used by single individuals and cleaned afterwards

·    Take drinking fonts and ball cleaners out of play.

·    Close air pressure cleaners for cleaning shoes following the round

  1. Smile

Be the light in their day. They are doing something they love and have been longing to do. Make sure to enhance their experience as much as possible. Everyone is going through a tough time right now. Be the smile that makes a difference to your membership!

April Social Media Content Ideas

Spring is in full swing giving you plenty of great opportunities for interesting social media posts (even if we are all quarantined). If you’re looking April marketing ideas—in particular, April Facebook posts, look no further. Let’s get right to it!

The Masters

April 6 through 12 – Unfortunately, The Masters has been postponed this year, but that shouldn't stop us from sharing in the tradition of this historic event and great priced (and simple) foods! Offer to-go orders for lunch with things like pimento cheese sandwiches or grilled chicken sandwich, maybe even the iconic ice-cream sandwich (or recipes for customers to make them on their own, at home).

National Siblings Day

April 10 – Celebrate the bond of siblinghood by inviting brothers and sisters into your shop for a sibling date! Think about running a two for one promotion or snapping pics of all the siblings that come to your shop and posting to social!

National Grilled Cheese Day

April 12 – Holidays that celebrate our favorite foods get quite a bit of social media clout since food is something we all can bond over. For #nationalgrilledcheeseday think about to-go orders for lunch and snapping a photo of your cheesy dish or take the opportunity to cross-promote with another local business.

Tax Day Moved to July 15th!

As the deadline for filing your taxes is looming, try to make light of it! Perhaps you post useful tips for tax season or if you’re lucky enough to have a product or service that coincides with the almighty dollar, use it to your advantage!

Get to Know Your Customer Day

April 16 – Get to Know Your Customer Day is a great opportunity for interacting with your customers. Post questions on Facebook that engage them in a conversation. Ask for their opinions to help improve your services, what they like about your business, etc.

Air Five Day (stay 6 feet away please)

April 16 – High Five Day We'll call this Air-Five Day this year, leaves a lot of room for some good clean fun. We love the idea of asking customers to high five your staff for photo ops to post on social that they’re likely to share if you ask their permission to tag them. Up your Facebook following by inviting customers to tag people they’d like to give a virtual air-five.

Or give your own virtual air-five as a thank you or special shout out to customers, vendors or even a cause you support.

If you’re up for it, think about running a promo that coincides with the number five…it doesn’t all have to be about a literal high five!

Denim Day

April 29 – Denim Day is associated with one of the causes for the month of April, Sexual Assault Awareness. Take a break from self-promotion and educate your followers on the history of the holiday.

Or show your support for victims of sexual assault by asking employees to wear denim to work on this day.

Prom Season

Speaking of the awareness causes for this month… It would have been Prom Season! Virtually every type of business can figure out a post to tap into the prom season frenzy. Getting customers to share their past prom photos seems appropriate for this year!

National Child Abuse Prevention Month

Show your support for National Child Abuse Prevention Month by posting a blue pinwheel gif which is the national symbol for the cause.

Or plant a pinwheel garden at your place of business and share it with your followers in hopes of raising awareness.

Top Presidential Golfers

President Donald Trump will be the 16th of the past 19 American presidents to play golf. And immediately upon entering office, he will be the top presidential golfer of the group, thanks to his current 2.8 Handicap Index and his 19 club championship victories. According to Golf Digest's Jaime Diaz, who twice played golf with Trump in recent years, the best part of his game is his ball-striking, although Trump himself says it's his putting.

Trump knocks John F. Kennedy from the No. 1 spot in our previousTop Presidential Golfers ranking of the best golf presidents. Here's how the rankings shake out, with an assist from Don Van Natta Jr., author of the book, First Off the Tee: Presidential Hackers, Duffers, and Cheaters from Taft to Bush.

  1. Donald Trump
    Known for his bombastic statements, his boast of winning 19 club championships isn't one of them
  2. John F. Kennedy
    Despite chronic back pain, averaged 80
  3. Dwight D. Eisenhower
    Installed a green outside the Oval Office; member at Augusta National
  4. Gerald R. Ford
    Despite a clumsy image, a legitimate 80s-shooter
  5. Franklin D. Roosevelt
    At 39, polio robbed him of a powerful golf swing
  6. George W. Bush
    His handicap dipped under 10, post-presidency
  7. George H.W. Bush
    Once got his handicap down to 11
  8. Bill Clinton
    Can break 90, especially using his “Billigans”
  9. Barack Obama
    The lefty plays hoops and golf, more than 330 rounds during his two terms.
  10. Ronald Reagan
    Didn't play often or well (best was low 90s)
  11. Warren G. Harding
    Struggled to break 95
  12. William Howard Taft
    As hapless a golfer as he was a chief executive
  13. Woodrow Wilson
    Played more than Ike but almost never broke 100
  14. Richard M. Nixon
    He shot 79 once and quit the game
  15. Lyndon B. Johnson
    Played with senators to secure votes for the Civil Rights Act of 1964
  16. Calvin Coolidge
    When he vacated the White House, he left his clubs behind
