Chorley Golf Club
Thank you for following the link to this survey. You possibly filled in our members' survey a year ago. If so we thank you for your efforts. As we said before, we are constantly striving to improve the facilities and services that we offer to you, our members. There have been many changes since last year's survey, many as a result of what you told us. Again we need your feedback about what we are doing. To that end, we would be most grateful if you would spend a few minutes completing this questionnaire. In some cases we have asked you to choose from a list of specific answers; in others we have given you room to give your comments in your own words. This feedback is very important to us in deciding our future actions.
The Board of Chorley Golf Club Ltd
As a golf club we have to try to balance what we do for our fee-paying members with what we do to attract revenue from visitors. We value your feedback on this subject.
When answering questions about aspects of the course, please try to take an average of what you have experienced allowing for incessant rain that makes the course muddy and long dry spells that make the fairways bone-hard.
How do rate the following?
Golf's handicap system means that the concepts of "easy" and "difficult" are relative to one's handicap. If you consistently find the course easy and consistently score well, your handicap reduces until you no longer find it easy. However you can compare how well you score here compared to how well you do another course (bearing in mind that you may not be as familiar with the other course). You also may be able to gauge how well visitors do here compared to at their own course.
In addition, the difficulty may be related to a player's handicap. Our course layout may be more difficult for a high-handicapper than a low-handicapper (or vice versa).
In this section we want your opinion of the difficulty of our course bearing in mind the points above. We asked this question last year but it wasn't easy to find the answer because of the way we asked the question so we'll try again in a slightly different way.
In the last 6 months the downstairs dining room has been upgraded with the introduction of the 1897 bar/dining area that leads out onto a patio. Please say what you think of this area. A brief explanation of your rating would be helpful.
How do you rate the following parts of the building? (if not important to you, please leave blank)
How do you rate the services/Pro Shop
At the moment, the Golf Club is managed almost entirely by volunteers; the Board of Directors and the various committees are made up of club members who freely give up their time and use whatever expertise they have (often gained in their working lives) to keep the club functioning in a sound financial state for the benefit of its members. Some clubs have a slightly different model in which they still use the expertise of volunteer members but they also have a salaried person, usually called a General Manager, who is charged with the overall management of the Club.
A general manager would inevitably be an additional cost to the club so he/she would have bring additional income from some source, so something would have to change from present.
I want to emphasise the Board has no plans for a General Manager and has not even discussed how this would work in practice. Nevertheless we would be interested to know if any member has experienced this type of structure or what the thoughts of the members are about this.
