Our Approach

"Successful Golf  Course Management Requires a Unique Blend of Strategic Planning and Operations Experience"

Christovich and Associates specializes in providing management and consulting to golf course owners for all aspects of golf course operations.  Our company specializes in assessing club operations and prescribing and implementing  action plans to restore financial viability.  Our focus and attention to detail in all aspects of the operation are second to none.  Initial tasks will include:

  • Quickly identifying the challenges and opportunities at the club
  • Immediately communicate our vision, mission and priorities to club, staff, members, frequent players and the community at-large.
  • Developing a budget that addresses the most critical operating and capital resources necessary to restore and maintain value (within the first 45 days).
  • Appointing and re-training of personnel to implement the necessary operating plan to rapidly grow top-line revenues and achieve desired financial results.
  • Provide frequent and thorough reporting to the club so you can be assured that the entire process is on track and on target as it relates to the approved business plan.

Our Company

Our principals have as much or more experience in golf operations than any other company in the industry, and we have a proven track record of successful course and facility management in varying markets around the country.

What separates us from others:

  • Undertaking a dedicated effort to rebuild the club’s image and involvement in the community to restore credibility and create a positive image in the neighborhood and business community.
  • Identifying and achieving the precise positioning for the club’s operational goals.
  • Addressing every potential obstacle through a comprehensive internal process, whether it be physical, environmental or otherwise, to achieve a profitable operation.
