NGCOA Canada has partnered with Golf Industry Guru (GIG), a premium golf and hospitality online training and education portal.
Through the agreement, NGCOA Canada members will receive preferred pricing to access the content on golfindustryguru.com.
The website will provide operators with education, training, tools, templates and tips from golf and hospitality industry leaders from around the world who will share their expertise and experiences.
Training that is easy to digest, visually appealing and helps educate Millennials and Gen Zs on topics such as customer service, effective communication, leadership, sales skills, workplace safety and more will be available through GIG.
“Finding, training and developing great staff is often a challenge, and going through the repetitive process every year with limited resources and often outdated manuals makes it more difficult, ineffective, and time consuming,” said James Cronk, co-founder of GIG.
As an industry consultant and speaker who has travelled around the globe, Cronk says he has continually heard from golf course owners and operators who have stated that they wanted better tools and training to help develop their staff.
“They want team members who are better employees and they want to develop themselves and their department heads into better leaders,” said Cronks, adding that GIG works for any type and size of golf course and will benefit all positions at the facility.
The site will be loaded with various training opportunities that include webinars, podcasts, downloadable templates and one-to-one coaching and can be customized to fit all facilities, as well as everyone’s schedules.
“We think that Golf Industry Guru will be of great benefit to our members”, said NGCOA Canada COO Nathalie Lavallée, “GIG is an additional resource our members can access when looking for effective training”.
Each club membership includes 10 User Profiles so several team members from the same club can have access to GIG at the same time.
Special reduced pricing for NGCOA Canada members is being offered at $79 U.S. per month or $799 U.S. per year. (Regular prices are $99 U.S. per month or $999 U.S. per year).
