Best Thing Your Golf Club Committee Can Do?

What is the best thing a golf club committee can do for its members?

Golf course architect and former tour player, Mike Clayton:

"From my point of view, that would be making decisions not for themselves but the future.

"It's too easy to make short-term decisions.

"It's the old syndrome, 'I don't care what they do after I'm dead'.

"I think every club's got to be making decision for the next 20 or 30 years, not just next week or next month."

PGA Tour Champions player, David McKenzie:

"Rather than listening to the greens committee, quite often I'd be using experts besides the superintendent, outside experts to make the golf course as good as possible."

Tour professional, Harrison Endycott:

"Provide a fun, enjoyable environment."

PGA Tour of Australasia winner, Jack Wilson:

"Make it more of a destination, throw some entertainment on afterwards, encourage the entertainment after, whether it be a barbeque and beers or some live music, make it something that we get at a pub that we go to on a Friday night and bring that to the golf course and then incorporate the two.

"I think if we make [golf clubs] a bit more of a destination, that'd be the best thing a committee could do I think."

3-time European Tour winner, Marcus Fraser:

"Trying to attract younger people to the sport is a big thing and I think that's what we need to do.

"I suppose people my age that have kids that are keen to be playing golf, they're the people we want to get to golf clubs."
