McConnell Golf is increasing its territory day by day. It already has 10 private clubs and out of those 10 8 of them has facilities in Carolinas. It also has a Reserve Club in Pawleys Island.
LStar Management first hired McConnell to help them operate the Ocean Club and the Members Club au the Grande Dunes. In addition to that they were also handed the Grand Dunes Marina and the Anchor Café that is there on the Intracoastal Waterway. On December 20th LStar bought the Grande Dunes resort from the Burroughs & Chaplin Co.
Out of the 10 courses that McConnell Golf operates, The Members Club is one of the first courses that they do not own. However the contract can be renewed after two years. Both of the parties are seriously concerned about the quality of the course and that is why they have been together for such a long time.
In the recent times there were lot of offers to operate the courses but McConnell was the top priority amongst all the others. In the initial contract 70 per cent of the initiation fees were refundable but only if you resigned. But the fact that the courses were so well maintained made it possible for everyone to stick to McConnell. The continuous impetus to improve the overall service has given everyone a real boost to everyone.
They have walk mowed the greens, painted the cups and the car windshields are washed almost every alternate days. The best part is they have kept a watch on each and every small detail just to keep up to the reputation. Due to all things and because of the quality of service they give McConnell has been able to retain the operations although they have not succeeded in owning any of the courses. But it is a very big scale which they are working on and that should not be minuscule.
