What the EWING Partnership Could Mean to You

Posted On: August 7, 2019 by VGM Club in:

They say good things come to those who wait. VGM Club believes that to be true. Certainly in the case of our latest agronomy contract with Ewing Irrigation & Landscape Supply we agree.

Our business development director of agronomy, Mike Woltz, spent the better half of two years working with the Ewing management team to design a partnership agreement that would provide clubs around the country with a tangible value. We are happy to report mission accomplished.

Here are some highlights of this newly formed partnership that you should know:

An exclusive 3% product credit – Like several other VGM agronomy programs, participating clubs will find a 3% reduction via credit on their future purchases from Ewing. It’s a value that keeps on giving as you use this trusted, family-owned company.

It’s a win for ALL VGM Club members – Almost 20% of all VGM Club members (677 clubs) already buy from Ewing. And why not? They are America’s largest family-owned company that provides products and services in all your irrigation, erosion, and landscaping needs. More great news for them is they will all see that 3% credit on their end of year statement. For the remaining 3,165 clubs that VGM Club works with that are not currently buying from Ewing, now is a great time to reevaluate your purchasing. We can help take care of the legwork for you. Give us a call.  

Leveraging the contract on the big project – Replacing the irrigation system. You neither enjoy it when it takes place nor does anyone like to pitch the project to the board. Irrigation lines are out-of-sight-out-of-mind for the members but ever so critical for the course. Ewing can positively affect your budget concerns so, if you have a capital project coming up, make sure to contact us to see how Ewing could help turn discerning looks into approvals at the next board meeting.

Couple these fantastic accolades with the Ewing’s team’s strong presence around much of the country and there is no reason for a club not to consider Ewing when the need arises.

The wait is over. Ewing is ready to serve the VGM Club community!

    US Consulting Group (USCG) is a national waste and recycling management company, and a top partner of ours for several years now. What makes them a top partner? Not only do they offer substantial cost savings to clients at no capital expense, they’re redefining what a well-developed, strategic waste plan should be. And the BINPAK®, one of their newest product offerings for the club industry, embodies this perfectly. The BINPAK is a six-yard waste container with built-in compaction using...

    No matter what you call yours, everyone on planet Earth has one. Nearly half of men become one. Dad, daddy, old man, pa, papa, pops, sir. Father. This Sunday marks the day Americans officially honor the patriarch of the family.  June 16 also plays host to the final round of our country’s great golf championship—the US Open. These two celebrated events often intertwine on the calendar and rightfully so. While not all fathers in the United States are avid golfers, studies...

    by Carla Boss My VGM Club teammate, Mike Woltz, and I were busy volunteering again earlier this month at the AT&T Byron Nelson Classic. The event was held at Trinity Forest Golf Club where we were excited to be surrounded by some familiar faces. Yes, Jordan Spieth and Brooks Koepka were there. However, the PGA’s top players were not the superstars we came to see. We stepped inside the ropes to support the unsung heroes of these tournaments—Trinity Forest’s maintenance team and...

    “I get the ‘Club’ part but what does ‘VGM’ stand for?” We get that question quite often. Our team quickly answers by sharing a story or two about our co-founder, Van G. Miller, and why the company bares his initials as our namesake. The “VGM” acronym can take on other translations. When thinking about our agronomy programs for the sake of this blog, I in particular can think of our moniker standing for this… Value Growth Maintenance Value...
