We are currently in our final year of study at Northumbria University, all studying business-related degrees. Over the last few months, we have been working together alongside Allendale Golf Club to look at ways in which the club can increase the number of members and further generate additional income.
Since our first client meeting, back in December, we have been working on collecting both primary and secondary data. A report will be put together with all our findings and recommendations and handed over in early April to both Colin and Robin. A presentation will then be held in May to further to discuss our findings.
On Friday 24th February, we spent the day visiting Allendale Golf Club, as well as visiting the town of Allendale. The views from the clubhouse over the golf course were breath-taking, showing the great potential the club has to offer. After hearing so much about the golf club, it was great to see it in person and get a feel for the atmosphere of the area.
We look forward to presenting our recommendations and hope these can be implemented at Allendale Golf Club in the future.

The BRS online tee booking system has now been implemented for our club. For members, this means tees can be reserved and Opens booked and paid for in advance.
To reserve tees as a member, you will need to register with the system using your CDH number as your username:
BRS Member Registration (also accessible from the website – Members dropdown menu)
Booking and paying for Opens in advance is completed here:
Book Opens (also accessible from the website – Allendale Opens 2017 on the home page).
While the primary purpose of this system is to simplify tee booking and payment for visitors, there are significant benefits to the club if members also make use of this facility.
The 2017 Fixtures have now been keyed into the website Calendar – go to Members dropdown menu and click Fixtures.
Let me know if you spot any errors – all entries had to be retyped as there is no easy import mechanism. However, export to your own calendar is supported – go to the website’s homepage, scroll down the right hand sidebar until you reach “Upcoming Events” and then click the Add button. This presents a number of export options including Google, Outlook, Apple etc – it certainly works to Google’s calendar, I have not tried any others.
There are some dates yet to be confirmed e.g. Presentation Night.
