APGS 2019 – A 5G Mindset – Time To Keep It Green!

There are over 5000 golf courses in Asia and when viewed collectively, golf courses suddenly become a key part of the Continent’s environment landscape. Put simply, the sheer number of courses does create huge concerns regarding their impact on the environment.

While the issue of sustainability in the golf industry has been discussed for more than a decade, the time has now come for course owners and operators in Asia to sit up and take notice of the challenge. One club that has taken the initiative to place the environment on top of its agenda is the multi-award winning Sentosa Golf Club in Singapore.

It has an ambitious programme called ‘Keep it Green’ which according to Andy Johnston, General Manager and Director of Agronomy is designed to “ensure that every aspect of our agronomy programmes and operations strive to work in harmony with the environment.”

“The future of the golf industry requires clubs, owners and managers to understand more about what can be done to neutralise and enhance the environment,” said Johnston. “I hope that Sentosa serves as an inspiration in this respect as we continue to find new ways to benefit the environment,” he added.

What Sentosa Golf Club has to offer is a very comprehensive programme that aims to help the club deliver on its commitment to play its part as a good and responsible citizen of the environment.

Johnston will deliver a special presentation on the club’s “Keep It Green” programme and he will be amongst one of some twenty world-class speakers who have been booked to speak at APGS 2019.

The Summit will be staged on November 4 – 6 in the futuristic Indian city of Gurugram and the venue will be the multi-award winning DLF Golf and Country Club.

APGS 2019 – A 5G Mindset – The Power Of 5G People!

Without a doubt, the rapidly changing technology landscape is proving to be both a challenge and an opportunity. It’s a challenge for those who try and sweep the advent of technology under the rug; and it’s an opportunity with boundless rewards for those who embrace it with open arms.

While it is acknowledged that new technology will make your business faster, better and more efficient, what about an invaluable resource – your PEOPLE?

In a golf club environment, there is only one thing that has the POWER to drastically improve the satisfaction of your members, the delivery of your products and the results of your business… and that is your people!

For the answers, the 2019 Asia Pacific Golf Summit has turned to 30-year golf industry veteran James Cronk, President of the Cronk Group. Considered a global expert in his field, Cronk has come back with a plan that offers three steps on how to get your people POWERED ON:

First, your team needs to be ‘Plugged In’ to know what your club is all about, what your members and customers want, what your goals are and how they can help you achieve them;

Second, you need ‘Power Tools’ to ensure consistency and to make sure that your team has the systems and structure to achieve success. Establishing standards and processes, training to those standards and then assessing performance is the cycle needed for consistent performance;

Third, you need to be a ‘Powered On Leader’ if you want your team to be truly excited about coming to work and motivated to serve your members. Your exceptional leadership skills need to be on display each and every day if your business expects to thrive in this challenging industry.

By powering on yourself as a leader and your team as service professionals, you will improve the satisfaction of your members and guests and more importantly, achieve your business objectives,” explained Cronk.

Cronk will be amongst one of some twenty world-class speakers who have been booked to speak at APGS 2019.

The Summit will be staged on November 4 – 6 in the futuristic Indian city of Gurugram and the venue will be the multi-award winning DLF Golf and Country Club.
