    Before we begin a relationship with a supplier partner, we determine how they fit within our own philosophy. Without question, John Deere Golf’s commitment to quality products and services parallels ours. This has led to a partnership that extends beyond just benefits on purchasing John Deere Golf equipment.  Once we dig deeper to specific dealers, you find the commitment to service throughout the entire ownership process. Not only are you getting the performance of John Deere...

At VGM Club, we strive to not only offer solutions and savings, but also a community where members come together for thought leadership and innovative business practices. To deliver on our question of the month, we bring you one of the true all-stars in the golf...

    Written by Mike Woltz, Director of Business Development – Agronomy In the article, “Fine-Tune Your Agronomic Budget” we published last month, I pointed out that, “Just like your greens committee, VGM Club is not always an expert. We count on your feedback and the expertise of our partners to build a program that works for you. We will always work to better that portfolio with existing and/or new partners. That will never change.” Part of that quote was a teaser...

    Over the last three months, VGM Club has been working on updating our data to create a better experience for our members. The more we know about your club, the better we can communicate with you. Every VGM Club associate updated information about more than 100 clubs to reflect their most up-to-date amenities and opportunities.

    Are you headed to the CMAA Conference and Business Expo this year? VGM Club is! Thanks to members and non-members alike, the positive response VGM Club’s booth received last year blew us away. Our booth was a place to relax, grab something to drink, and hang out in our backyard. This year we wanted to take that idea up a notch, so we are going to park this food truck in our booth and serve food samples from our friends at Sysco, beverages from PepsiCo, and be decked from head to toe...

    From March 4-6, 350 of the best chefs in the United States will be in Seattle, Washington. Kitchens across our membership will be without their executive chef, sous chef, or pastry chef while they attend the 10th annual Chef to Chef Conference. This is a new venture for VGM Club…well almost. Eight years ago, VGM Club attended this show. Back then, there were only 60 attendees. We are elated to be back as one of only 11 sponsors for this prestigious event. Over the course of three...

    Written by Mike Woltz, Director of Business Development – Agronomy During the leadup to the Golf Industry Show this past month, we interviewed a few of our members speaking at the event. As the Director of Business Development – Agronomy, I was interested in the entire piece, but one particular question we asked every single interviewee was, “How do you plan to grow as a manager in 2018?” As I read the responses, it got me thinking about how our jobs parallel in one...

    Come Together for Savings, Come Together for Solutions, Come Together with VGM Club. PGA Merchandise Show During this year’s PGA Merchandise Show, we decided to change things up a bit. We did not have a booth for the first time in 22 years! This was not a referendum on the show itself – it was merely a chance to allocate our resources towards something different. Before the show, and during our time walking the trade show floor, we invited pro shop contacts to our party...
