Supporting CMAE

“Many firms make a lot of money from the game of golf, but few return some of their profits to aid the game develop. Circle Golf is one of the few who do and their funding over the past 10 years has enabled the Scottish Region CMAE to provide annually 3 seminars on topics aimed at enhancing the professional skills of managers which in turn has enabled them to improve the service in their clubs to members and visitors. As the value of this education has been recognised membership has grown. It is doubtful if this could have been achieved without Circle Golf’s support and certainly at best it  would have taken considerably longer

“CMAE now provides two 5 day courses leading the Diploma in Club Management. This is the first stage of professional development for European Managers seeking to attain the Certified Club Manager accreditation which is the professional qualification recognised in the USA, Canada, China, South Africa and Australia. To gain the award a manager must attend the World Club Managers Conference held annually in America. Circle Golf Provides annually 3 bursaries to assist Scottish Managers with travel costs.

Circle Golf are now also helping CMAE in England where regional associations have been established similar to Scotland

The Scottish Region CMAE are pleased to record their sincere thanks to Circle Golf for what they have done for the Association and golf in Scotland” – John Duncan CMAE
