What is the Scottish Golf Buying Group?
As part of our commitment to supporting clubs and in response to demand for this particular service, Scottish Golf is delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with Golf Management Group (GMG), providing all affiliated golf clubs free access to a dedicated buying group.
The Scottish Golf Buying Group, in partnership with GMG, will harness the collective purchasing power of clubs to leverage significant discounts across a range of goods and service categories used by golf clubs. Our aim is to deliver cost savings for clubs and improve the services on offer to clubs from our group of suppliers. The service will be opt-in, but we are encouraging all clubs to consider the many benefits of the Buying Group, including:
- Access to GMG’s internal teams, experts in their field who will benchmark your core areas of expenditure against our national price files and give you insight into best practice and the current trends in their sector.
- Access to Contracts Manager, an easy to use online management tool designed to manage all your service and utility contracts.
- A saving of £149 a year – Scottish Golf affiliated clubs will not be required to pay for the service.
A similar partnership has been in place with England Golf since November 2017 and 33 clubs have already been making savings, with a 19% average saving per category, equating to total savings across the clubs of £158,725.
What categories of goods and services are available via the Buying Group?
The list of categories we operate in includes:
- Waste Management
- Golf Course Equipment
