Recent global economic conditions began to weigh heavy on a still well-regarded country club. Membership levels reached historic lows and operating capital was dwindling. Attrition at the staff level and insufficient participation on the part of the board of directors was leading to a general breakdown in the quality, service and amenities the club had to offer. This further contributed to worsening conditions in most every aspect of the club.
On top of all this, the need for renovations and other issues necessitated the closure of the club for over a year, during which time membership dropped precipitously. Upon reopening there was a great deal of work to be done, including the installation of a new management team, a new course superintendent, as well as a new food and beverage program.
