Private Clubs

Empowering clubs to create the ultimate member experience

Private clubs operate in a unique business environment. Whether a country club, golf club, city club or other, a private club is challenged with providing members optimum quality and service while managing costs. Clubs must react to changes in government regulations, tax laws, operational advancements and member expectations.

These challenges require the attention of professional service providers who know the industry and deliver services tailored to the private club environment. With an understanding of membership models, food and beverage operations, golf course maintenance and more, an audit conducted by industry-focused professionals provides the insight needed to strengthen the member experience. From sales tax, gratuities, rental units and other areas of the club operations, our tax professionals identify the issues impacting the tax position of private clubs and offer guidance and planning.

Our team offers additional insight into a number of areas of club operations including:

  • Performance improvement
  • Benchmarking
  • Amenity pricing
  • Turnover consulting
  • Fraud and forensics
  • IT security and controls
  • Seminars for boards and management
  • Construction contract audits
