Building a Bridge, Not a Gap 2.0 - On Demand

Lake Shore CC Team
Start Date
90 Minutes

Too often, the stories we hear about the relationship between the golf professional and the superintendent focus on the negative. In dealing with human nature, managers must overcome the temptation to stay focused in their own areas, without understanding the other person or what their role requires. In this 90-minute webinar, we hear about the "on-going maintenance of a bridge" that effective relationships require to succeed. Paul Schell, director of golf, Eric Schomske, head golf professional, and Jeffrey Wuenstel, general manager, discuss how understanding each other's problems or point of view enhances the team concept at Lake Shore Country Club.
