Myths About Management Companies Exposed March 6, 2018

Whenever a business is told to hire a management company to help them with the daily operations at a location, they use misconceptions as a way to avoid making the right decision. One of the issues is that so much misinformation is out there regarding the way management companies operate.

Management Companies Do Not Take Over

One of the biggest misconceptions that we hear about golf management companies and other entities is that when they are brought in to help, they will take over the operations. They will run things the way they want, and not do what the owner is suggesting.

Such a suggestion is completely untrue. A management company is the vehicle of the owner, not the company that is in charge of the location. For instance, if you were to hire a management company to help run your golf course, they would defer to you on all major decisions. Unless you put them in charge of a specific situation, they will run everything by you before acting.

Brand Confusion

Many businesses worry about whether they would get lost in the shuffle if a management company were to take over. For instance, you may fear that all the logos at your locations would be geared to the management company.

But that is not true either. If you do not want any presence of the management company’s brand, you could choose to go that route. If you want a minimal presence, they would be happy with that too. If you want to plaster their name on every part of your golf club, it is fine too. You are the owner, and your decision is what matters.

Too Expensive to Hire

Of course, a management company will charge money for its services. But when you think about how much you are paying your current employees to run things, you are not incurring an increased cost. In fact, management companies are more efficient, and will reduce overall expenses.
