    Support For Your Committee - Marketing Convenor

    A half day workshop, delivered by Claire Middleton & the Scottish Golf Club Development Team, to support the Marketing Convenor and their team to establish a strategy for achieving the marketing objectives that best serve your clubs aims.  


    Whether it’s Membership Recruitment, or to increase Visitor numbers, no club can afford to ignore the importance of marketing on their two most crucial income streams. Devising a Marketing Plan and Budget however can be a considerable challenge, especially for an incoming Marketing Convenor who perhaps has little or no marketing experience.  Building a brand, creating engaging content, growing awareness and interest with a wider audience and communicating consistently and regularly with your current members, potential members and visitors alike, whether through more traditional media such as local newspapers or local radio, or through using Social Media. This education seminar is to provide new and existing Marketing Convenors, and their senior ‘workforce’ - volunteers, club staff, or club professionals - the opportunity to identify and address these common issues and establish a strategy for Marketing which fits within your golf club’s particular situation.

    • to establish the roles and responsibilities of the Marketing Convenor, your volunteers and any staff involved in Marketing at your club.
