Membership Recruitment and Retention

With member subscription revenue consistently the highest form of income for most clubs in Scotland, our extensive support resources are very well used by committees planning their membership recruitment and retention strategies. From marketing and social media advice, to flexible membership and running an open day, Scottish Golf provides guidance in a modular format, so clubs can choose the resources most relevant to their circumstances.

These resources include best practice examples of clubs who have delivered successful activity under these themes, in addition to templates which allow you to cut and paste suitable text into your own documents. As well as recruitment techniques, our guidance gives you advice on retaining new members, helping you to better engage with new customers in that all-important first 90 days.
