The purpose of our annual Club Governance Survey is to explore gaps in board education and alignment across the industry and report those findings in a way that will provoke thought, fuel productive discussions, and promote adoption of best practices. Our goal is to help boards learn to work together more effectively and
to ensure that board members have the knowledge they need to succeed.
This survey, conducted in late 2022, garnered more than 1,200 responses from board members and general managers representing 801 different clubs. Responding clubs covered the full industry spectrum with participation from golf clubs, country clubs, yacht clubs, tennis clubs and social clubs. This year’s response was the largest and most geographically diverse since the survey began six years ago. To the best of our knowledge, the responses also represent the largest involvement of board members in a data-collection effort of this kind.
