Layout of your sales/office area
You would be amazed how easy it is to get this wrong and without foreknowledge of the pitfalls, you can find out too late what mistakes have been made.
Bear in mind that all customers have to be attended to twice, both at the initial sales transaction and the return of the clubs and the claiming
of free tickets won on the 19th hole.
You need storage for clubs, balls, scorecards, pencils, literature. You need a till, security cameras & monitor, p.a. system, intercom, access to burglar and fire alarms, secure cash storage (and spare change), credit card facilities and phones. You need to be able to serve out quantities of clubs, balls etc, including to very young/small people – and accept them back (maybe at the same time). You need to be particularly mindful of security. You need to be able to do this efficiently with one person at quiet times but have space for two staff to share the load at busy times.
Safes & banking/Secure cashing up areas. Office space.
Till. More than just a device to take money. Modern EPOS tills provide a wealth of management information and security levels and controls.
Security cameras. You almost certainly will need these so that your staff can see those ‘out of sight’ areas. They therefore will need a monitor and probably a p.a. system and intercom to act on what they see.
You will be taking a lot of money. You need plans for storage, spare change, credit card facilities, spare cash etc..
All of this we can advise on and save you headaches (and money) later.
You will need signs for prices, rules, directions and Health and Safety issues. We can advise.
