How do you work with people to create a team?


s


n s


d e


I think “leading by example” shows that you’re part of the team no matter what position you hold. Actions speak louder than words. Team is formed by a positive attitude. Not one person forms the team. As the leader, you need to trust your people. Let them know that they are part of the solution. Empower your assistant’s and hold all staff accountable for their actions. Always pass along accolades when received from mem- bers and guests. Post any notes and or emails that you receive so they can read it verses you


verbally telling them. It goes much further. We like to have our employees take ownership in the golf course. We all are like family. We spend 8 – 10 hours a day with each other.


Can you tell us a little about the homemade traffic stakes you made for the course? Maybe some pictures of the process?


The traffic stakes started a few years back. My good friend Alan Brown was the assistant at The Lost Tree Club when this idea came to him. Alan took the rope away from the green stakes. By doing this, he did not need to stretch rope ev- ery day and players had an area to walk through the stakes without tripping over the rope.


I


brought that idea over to Old Marsh Golf Club where we just used cut up pine tree limbs with a nail in the bottom. Once I arrived at The Alotian Club in 2008, we stepped up our game. We personalized the traffic stakes by purchasing an electric branding iron (Brand-First) to label each stake.


It’s something small but it makes a huge


impact. I am now at Naples National Golf Club and we currently use this method. It’s a person- al touch. We use oak tree branches, cut to 18”, drive a nail in one end, bevel the other end at a 45 degree angle, brand the face, and coat with a polyurethane. We make about 300 – 400 to cover the cart traffic. This eliminates any use of rope. No rope means no stretching it out every day, no one steps on it, no one trips over it, carts don’t drive through it, and no knots.
