Part 1: The Perfect Membership Marketing Plan

Investing time to understand where your marketing plan is now and where you want it to go, will give you a positive start to hit the ground running for the upcoming season.

It is with great pleasure that Creative Golf Marketing receives the 2018 BoardRoom Magazine 'Excellence in Achievement' Membership Marketing Firm of the Year.

What the Net Promoter Score Means to Your Club

There is an enormous difference between a satisfied member, and a loyal member. Satisfied members may not be quitting anytime soon, but loyal members will invite their friends.

Experience the ‘Before and After’ Effect Now

A good before and after story always resonates with those who have put off a task or project for a while (maybe even last year’s club resolution). It’s good to have goals. Unfortunately, some goals are harder to attain (or keep) than others.

Align Your Goals With Your Purpose

The setting of membership goals in combination with the purpose of the club gives all individuals involved in the marketing process a “blueprint” that will help to guide the decision making process.

“We look forward to many years of success!”

Our desire has always been to bring in new members who will truly enjoy Warwick Country Club with their family and friends for many years to come.

It goes without saying, we would not have been able to welcome so many new members without Creative Golf Marketing.

“Thank You for 3 Years of Success!”

On behalf of the Lochmoor Club, I want to thank Creative Golf Marketing for our relationship and for three years of successful membership campaigns. It was a pleasure working with you and your staff.
