We Make A Difference…

 

“One of the best decisions that we have made at the Club was hiring Pinnacle as our “3rd Party CFO.” Their monthly financial reporting is very thorough and always timely. Pinnacle has been a key partner to us in many critical financial decisions and has played a huge part in the incredible turnaround in the financial performance of River Hills Country Club. Their club experience and financial acumen has enabled us to build a comprehensive 5 Year Financial Plan for the Club. In addition, their responsiveness to inquiries and requests is incredibly quick and complete. I could not be more pleased with their performance and incredible partnership with us.”

“Our partnership with PGP has been extraordinary. Their team has unparalleled experience in the golf industry and their integrity is beyond reproach. It is very rare to find an organization that offers true experts in all facets of the club business, including golf course construction and renovation. The efficiency they bring through their financial reporting and structure has been extremely beneficial to our corporate requirements. We could not have chosen a better partner and cannot imagine operating our club without their guidance.”

“PGP’s financial expertise and ability to micro audit our financial structure has been truly amazing. When we first purchased the courses I decided to hire a different group to manage our operations. Not hiring PGP out of the gate was by far the biggest mistake I have made in my career, and I am thankful that we now have them on our team. We are a very large financial institution that owns five high-end golf properties, and Pinnacle’s cash-oriented capabilities are right on point to our needs and expectations. I have also been extremely impressed.”

“I purchased Sapona Ridge CC and originally tried to operate the facility on my own. My education into the golf business was certainly expensive. Hiring PGP to help me better manage the Club was the best decision I have made and put both me and the club on the right track in quick order. I have the utmost respect for them and I trust them. Their experience and guidance has been immeasurable.”

“We made the switch from Troon Golf over to Pinnacle Golf Properties having wanted a more local presence in our market. In PGP’s first year managing Skybrook our NOI increased by over $200,000 as a direct result of their leadership. We could not be more pleased with their oversight and guidance for operating our asset. Their team is extremely efficient, incredibly responsive and well-connected in the industry. We have the utmost trust in their entire team and are very grateful to have them as our operating partner.”

“It has been our distinct pleasure to have hired the Pinnacle Golf Properties team to handle our financial reporting and payroll. Over the past several years we had experienced a great deal of turnover and declining membership and sales. We enacted several successful membership programs, which brought in several hundred new members. I truly believe that Pinnacle was the critical piece in allowing us to manage the growth as well as we did.

 

They have been a joy to work with and have helped us streamline our systems and implement ones that were not in place. In the beginning they reviewed our trial balance and chart of accounts to organize and reduce the total number of accounts. This helped department heads understand more clearly their impact on profitability. Each department head now is more accountable has a larger role in driving their departmental success.

 

My relationship with our Board of Directors and committees is stronger than ever now that an independent third party is collecting, reviewing and reporting our financial data. The level of trust across the board has increased to an extremely positive level, the Board’s trust of the GM and the membership’s trust of the Board are at all time high levels. This is solely due to the systems and organization put in place by Pinnacle’s Team.

I would recommend any and all of the services offered by the Pinnacle Golf Properties team for any club looking to grow membership and improve their bottom line. They certainly have a great lineup of private club professionals for any of your needs.

I am available to discuss how Pinnacle has helped us and answer any questions you might have.”
