The Queensland golf industry relies heavily on the support of volunteer committee members to work in tandem with paid staff, yet until now little induction, support or guidance has been provided to help those volunteers to fully understand their role and avoid the known pitfalls.
Club Support workshops are free, short training sessions delivered across the State by Club Support Consultants in a range of specific areas. The sessions will develop your skills, improve your knowledge and ultimately help you develop your club. Sessions are specifically for sports clubs and will give you the opportunity to learn from other peoples’ experiences, working smart together. They are for groups of at least 4 clubs and build upon the content of the Golf Australia online resources, but also include case studies, topical issues and a discussion section.
The workshops typically last approximately 2 hours and like all Club Support workshops are open to anyone involved in the running of their golf club. We encourage more than one person from a club to attend so that knowledge and business skills can be shared within their club.
The current topics include:
• Club Finances
• Club Structures
• Grant Writing
• Marketing and Sponsorship
• Business Planning
• Membership Recruitment and Retention
Building Active Communities Workshop
Golf clubs can also use the Building Active Communities Workshop program run by the Queensland Department of Sport & Recreation. This program provides free workshops to increase the skills and knowledge of community sport and recreation volunteers such as committee members, coaches, team managers, officials and administrators.
Most workshops run for 3 hours in the evening from 6pm to 9pm on a week night or on a Saturday morning.
All workshops are free.
