Golf Lawyer - 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. How such delegation is undertaken, while retaining key elements of control, is a delicate balance that needs to be appropriately implemented so as to realize the optimal productivity from one's board of directors and corporate executives, without necessarily ceding control or risking the loss of the benefits arising from ownership.

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 course and its club house. What is often required is the right corporate lawyer to navigate these individuals through their respective roles, such that their diverse personalities and experiences can be optimized to the golf course's benefit, while limiting the friction that is invariably associated with so many successful individuals attempting to influence the choices and direction of the golf club.
