Club Capital Reserve Studies in High Demand

CRS_icon_300Early last year, Club Benchmarking announced the addition of Capital Reserve Studies (CRS) to the company’s suite of data-centric tools and services. The expansion of services was in direct response to a clear need in the club industry. “Through our extensive work with clubs across the country, it had become apparent that only about 10 percent of clubs had commissioned an independent, third party capital reserve study,” says Club Benchmarking Founder Ray Cronin. “Capital reserve studies are a critical component of long-term financial planning and we feel very strongly that every club would benefit from an objective, professionally completed, 20-year inventory of capital needs. Adding this important service is a natural extension of our ongoing commitment to financial health and sustainability for private clubs.”

Response to the new service has been tremendous, confirming Cronin’s belief that increased awareness and availability would make it possible for more clubs to address the need for a capital reserve study. "We are thrilled to be providing this critically important service and delivering the insight clubs need to support strategic long-range planning." 

CRS engagements are currently being accepted and clubs considering a Capital Reserve Study in 2019 are encouraged to request a no-obligation proposal as soon as possible to ensure a spot in the 2019 schedule.
