Testimonials

Golf Services Management had the enviable task of re-establishing St Andrews Beach Golf course; a once private and exclusive golf course that had been bankrupt and completely closed for over a year.

Working with such a great course we were always confident of turning it into one of Australia’s best pay to play facilities but GSM had it running profitably within a year despite the huge challenges of its chequered history and lack of facilities and infrastructure.

With consistent profits ever since we now have the confidence and are moving forward in the next stage of the development.

Owner

St Andrews Beach Golf & Country Club Pty Ltd

GSM have been pivotal in reinvigorating the Peregian Springs Golf Club since their involvement in mid-2016. GSM have embraced the formidable challenge of transforming Peregian from a privately owned and operated course into a vibrant public facility.

As lessee, any queries have been responded to in a prompt and professional manner and GSM’s transparent and hands-on style of management has proven them to be a strong partner.

Senior Development Manager, Aveo Group

Golf Services Management (GSM) have managed the Morack Public Golf Course on behalf of Whitehorse City Council for the past 6 years. In that time they have demonstrated a strong business and marketing acumen along with an excellent understanding of the golf industry and the ongoing challenges it faces.

In addition, GSM have developed positive relationships with the resident golf clubs and regular patrons through their service focus.

Jeff Chambers

Team Leader - Leisure Facilities, Whitehorse City Council

A business associate highly recommended that we engage Golf Services Management as the Facility Manager of Kingston Links Golf Course while we went through the processes of zoning and planning permits for a residential development.

With limited tenure and in the face of rumours of pending closure they rose to the challenge of keeping the venue operating as a premium public facility and importantly maximising the potential of the course to generate income.

Over the 30 months of our relationship, GSM proved themselves to be a totally professional organisation and consistently delivered on their KPI’s. I benefitted from a recommendation and in turn I am happy to pass one on.

Dean Pask

Managing Director, PASK Group

Ian Denny through his role first as head golf professional and then director of Golf Services Management, has been associated with the Amstel Golf Club since 1987. They are responsible for all golf related activities of the club which has undergone significant change and expansion, of which GSM has been an integral part.

The company policy and attitude of “always think of the club and its members first” and employing friendly and co-operative staff has made them a pleasure to work with.

In 2017/18 GSM designed, project managed and launched a state of the art driving range and sports bar, which has completely transformed the entire facility.

Peter Butler

Former General Manager, Amstel Club

Since the reopening of St Andrews Beach Golf Course under the management of GSM Course as one of Australia’s premier pay to play golf courses, Programmed Turnpoint has been contracted to provide its course maintenance services.

We believe that the flexibility shown by both parties has ensured the best outcome for the stakeholder through streamlining of operations and responsible budgeting without any noticeable affect to players on a golf course that continues to receive rave reviews about its design and course condition.

Through constant communication and planning a great business relationship has been formed with exciting projects planned for the future.

Justin Trott

General Manager, Programmed Turnpoint - Golf Division

Mi Club has been working closely with Ian and Golf Services Management for a number of years as a software provider to multiple venues. Ian and his company have remained at the forefront of industry trends and is regularly called upon to provide feedback and ideas to assist in the development of our software solutions. We enjoy working with companies such as GSM which share a common vision of providing enhanced services to the industry.

The vision of GSM to deliver innovative and streamlined systems for the benefit of stakeholders and ultimately the customer is second to none.I have no doubt this vision will see Golf Services Management remain a market leader well in to the future and meet industry challenges head on. We look forward continuing our relationship for the future.

Chris Little

National Account Manager, MiClub

Since appointing Golf Services Management on a long term lease at Rosebud Public Golf Course, we have been delighted with the professionalism and determination to deliver the best possible results for the entire facility. GSM have always delivered on their commitment to providing industry best practice and the presentation of the golf course is as good as it has ever been under their direction.

We remain in close contact with detailed reporting on KPI’s and initiatives at the venue which provides stakeholder peace of mind, particularly in relation to corporate governance and compliance considerations.

We’re extremely confident (of enjoying) a mutually beneficial & rewarding relationship long term.
