What is FORE GREEN?
Fore Green is a new golf consulting service created by two young touring professionals with a passion for golf and sustainability. Fore Green aims to inspire the golf industry towards positive sustainable changes to the management and operations of golf businesses. Fore Green inspires business and environmental solutions by championing best management practices and conveying real world examples to an industry wide collaborative network.
Where is FORE GREEN located?
We are headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia but have an international office in Vancouver, BC. Our clients exist throughout the South Eastern USA and in Western Canada but we go wherever our services are needed.
Who are FORE GREEN clients?
FORE GREEN assists golf course owners, public courses, general managers and organizations within the golf industry who currently oversee golf operations or are in charge of planning for future golf operations. We will work with anyone who shares our passion, is open to creative ideas and out of the box solutions.
What makes FORE GREEN different from other golf business consulting firms?
FORE GREEN staff, and our partners are the future of golf, literally. They are young professionals who love the game and want to see golf prosper so their children can experience the joy and learning which golf provides.
We champion sustainable golf solutions plus provide cutting edge knowledge of the dynamic market trends which face golf and golf club businesses in this challenging time. Rather than view sustainability as a business cost, Fore Green believes sustainable business practices provide opportunities clubs and companies can ill-afford to ignore. We aim to inspire, innovate and collaborate with like minded people who share our vision.
What does SUSTAINABILITY mean?
Sustainable and sustainability are loaded terms with all too many definitions to list. They means different things to different people and in many instances have been way overused. Think green washing. This said no other term exists which can take its place.
To Fore Green, SUSTAINABILITY refers to the harmonious balance between economic, environmental and social goals. For example, if the economics of a decision do not make sense, it won’t matter what the environmental benefits are or vice versa. We further believe, each golf business should develop their own unique definition of what it means to be sustainable for them. This way a personalised road map can be developed, leading to a strong stable golfing future.
How much does FORE GREEN cost?
Every client and every contract is different and we will provide you with a proposal uniquely tailored to your needs and budget. Our costs can be as little as $500 and but are generally dependent on your needs and scope of work. Introductions are always free and we make every effort to be flexible and work within your financial reality. Sometimes we can even provide the information you need in a digital presentation format, which can reduce your costs significantly.
Should we expect a ROI from your consulting fees?
The short answer - yes. The longer answer - yes again. The information we provide will either reduce your bottom line through operational efficiencies and reductions of waste or increase your revenues, as you begin to take advantage of industry leading trends, marketing and design strategies. Simply put, if our proposal doesn’t make good business sense, it's probably because your business is one of those rare industry leaders who are ahead of the curve.
