Golf Lawyer - Internal Workings of the Club

The operations of the golf club have their own unique dynamics, driven in part my the multitude of personalities and roles that the various individuals bring to the table in creating and advancing any particular golf club.

Ownership - Although there are a variety of ownership structures, ownership remains the ultimate decision-maker of the golf course and the club house, although many of its roles tend to be delegated to the board of directors and the executive team.

Board of Directors - Are charged with corporate oversight of the golf course and planning its future, which plans are thereafter charged to the corporate executives for implementation.

Officers / Executives - The officers and corporate executives are charged with managing the day-to-day operations of the golf course and implementing the plans determined by the board of directors.

Membership - The members are fundamental to the club house, given that they are the financial backbone for the golf course, yet they cannot necessarily be allowed to exert too much power in the decision-making process, although their position must be properly recognized and integrated into the decision-making of the board of directors and the executives.
