“We leverage our size and save you money.”
If you have entertained hiring a premier club management company, we’re sure you have heard this, particularly when it relates to buying power. Which leads to one of the questions prospective clients frequently ask us, “Can you really save us money on our purchases?”
The answer is a big “yes.”
One of the major benefits of hiring Bobby Jones Links, Troon, Kemper Sports and others is our ability to leverage our size and deep industry relationships to save clubs money on their purchases.
How much can we save?
The amount you will save by leveraging Bobby Jones Links procurement power depends on what is being purchased. For smaller purchases such as supplies, pro shop merchandise, fertilizers, and food and beverage it can range from 2% to 16%. However, for major equipment purchases such as golf cars, maintenance equipment, or insurances, the savings can be in the tens of thousands of dollars. The savings on major equipment can be 10% to 25%.
For instance, Bobby Jones Links recently reduced the cost to purchase a new fleet of golf carts for a client club by $73,000. At another club that replaced their entire maintenance equipment package, the savings were just over $140,000 due to our leverage, size, and industry relationships. Savings like that go straight to the bottom line. Nice!
Buying power. It’s fact, not fiction.
And it often pays for most of our management fee. That’s a fact you should consider!
The Bobby Jones name can be an asset to your club, but that’s not our focus. We realize every club is unique and its brand is special, which is why it is about you, not us, and why we always work in the background.
