A Voice to the Members
Some would say it is brave for a club to ask for its member’s views, we believe it is brave not to ask! It costs 5-6 times more to recruit a new member than it does to retain an existing one! Any business needs to know what its customers think, want and what their future intentions are, golf clubs are no different.
Some golf clubs conduct a ‘brief survey’ or an ‘exit interview’, the first tends not to be independent or thorough enough, the second is too late. With guaranteed member anonymity, 59club will carry out a comprehensive and independent survey of your membership, providing feedback based on every aspect of your business from your most valuable asset, your Members.
The 59club membership survey provides an economical way of truly understanding the views of your members, what is important to them and the degree of that importance. The results give you clear direction on ways to improve ‘life as a member’ of your club, vital if you are to successfully retain the core and transient element of your membership.
The survey has been designed specifically to improve member retention and comprises of 88 quick fire and easy to complete questions that will take the members' between 15-30 minutes to complete dependent on the level of detail they wish to submit. This product encompasses all aspects of ‘life as a member’ of your golf club through the 'eye' of the member.
All 59club products have the ability to make service level performance comparisons against your chosen competitors, other venues in your group, the best performing clubs, and the rest of the industry.
