This guide is written for clubs that seek to implement the Club Governance Model (Model), which was developed in 2007 and updated in 2014. The Model is built upon accepted principles and best practices in nonprofit governance. The Club Managers Association of America (“CMAA”) has designated the Model as its standard of excellence in governance and Global Golf Advisors has adopted it as the primary reference for its Club Governance consulting services. Although this guide is directed primarily toward member-owned clubs, the principles embodied in the Model are no less applicable to clubs with a different ownership structure. The primary purpose of the Model is to optimize the flow of authority from the club owners to the club staff and the corresponding flow of accountability from the staff back to the club owners. The Model is simply a set of principles designed to keep communications throughout the organization clear and the roles of key participants unambiguous.
