    Golf business management is a lot like golf course management. Business management in this industry, though, has more to do with all operations than just the course. It can also include marketing, food and beverage service, tournament hosting, and hiring and firing employees.

    The first course I am going to talk about is a more modern golf course with a lot of edginess, Whistling Straits. When the course was first being erected, everyone knew that it was going to be something special because of the world renown designer undertaking the project, Pete Dye.

    Whether it be the lack of wildlife such as birds or deer or the destruction of the trees and plants that hold golf courses together, many golf courses have caused more harm to areas of preservation than good. Since the inception of industrial mowers and high powered herbicides to kill weeds on a massive scale, golf courses have morphed into becoming high maintenance and potentially destructive facilities.
