A Group Purchasing Organization (GPO) like Entegra is your secret weapon for driving down costs and maximizing efficiency on the greens.

While you might be familiar with their expertise in sourcing traditional golf course needs like equipment, apparel and food & beverage, your GPO's reach extends far beyond the fairway.

Here are some unexpected ways your Golf GPO can help you score a hole-in-one on savings and elevate your course to new heights:

  1. Tee up security:
    • Secure cash delivery: Ensure the safety of your green fees and other cash transactions by utilizing your GPO's access to secure cash delivery services, eliminating the need for manual handling and reducing risk.

    • Background checks: Guarantee the trustworthiness and qualifications of your staff by leveraging your GPO's background check services, ensuring a safe and secure environment for both employees and guests.
  2. Greenify your operations:
    • Solar panel installation: Power your clubhouse and facilities with clean, renewable energy by partnering with your GPO to purchase and install solar panels. Reduce your carbon footprint and enjoy long-term cost savings on electricity bills.

    • Water management solutions: Optimize your course's water usage with your GPO's expertise in water management technologies and services. Implement irrigation systems, rainwater harvesting systems and water-efficient landscaping strategies to conserve water and save money.
  3. Elevate your game:
    • Equipment procurement: Replace aging golf carts, furniture, maintenance and kitchen equipment, ensuring your course has the latest technology to optimize operations.

    • Uniform and apparel programs: Outfit your employees in stylish and comfortable uniforms by taking advantage of your GPO's apparel programs. Access a wide range of golf-specific uniforms, sportswear and promotional items at discounted prices.
  4. Cleaning up beyond the greens:
    • Waste disposal and recycling: Simplify waste management at your course with your GPO's network of waste disposal and recycling providers. They can help you develop a customized plan that reduces waste generation, promotes recycling and complies with environmental regulations.

    • Sustainable supplies: Purchase environmentally friendly products like eco-conscious cleaning supplies and compostable packaging through your GPO. Contribute to sustainability while maintaining course quality.
  5. Simplify on-course transactions:
    • Control purchasing through locked order guides, manage and approve purchase orders, streamline approvals with efficient workflows and access inventory in one centralized platform, leveraging data for better forecasting. Lock in savings, ensure consistency and drive efficiency in your procurement operations.

    • Optimize energy efficiency with audits and Energy Star appliances for cost savings and sustainable methods. Implementing these energy management solutions not only reduces costs but also promotes a commitment to sustainable and eco-friendly practices.
