Frequently Asked Questions
Registered my golf clubs interest, what next?
One of the team will give you a call to answer any questions you may have. We aim to demonstrate during this conversation how GMG will save at least treble your annual subscription. We will give you an example of where savings will be made and an informed decision based on this can be made by yourself as to whether you wish to join the group.
How much can our golf club expect to save?
This will vary depending on how many categories you choose to utilise. We have a vast array of categories covered from utilities to the latest grass machinery. Every club is different however we do have companies aligned to the group who will guarantee your golf club savings.
Does GMG control who we purchase from?
You are under no obligation to use any GMG preferred supplier. Of course, the more you trade the more you save but we do not dictate. What you will find is that every supplier we align to has national coverage and is offering a price to the group that beats any stand alone price.
How do I start to make savings?
It's a very simple process. As soon as we receive your completed suppliers analysis we can start to prioritise your requirements.
What is the supplier analysis?
This is a crucial part of the process. The survey is completed online and is a strictly confidential, detailed report on your golf club's day to day expenditure. Thanks to the information we have within our systems, once we have input your completed survey, your account manager can instantly identify where the biggest savings can be made. This is then reported back to you and the relevant supplier is requested to follow up.
How do I order and pay for my goods?
You keep your independence. All ordering and payment of goods and services is done by the individual golf club. All approved suppliers are informed of your inclusion by us immediately and apply discounts accordingly.
How much does it cost?
We charge an annual fee of £149 plus VAT. We guarantee that if we don't demonstrate a saving of at least treble this, we will refund your membership fee in full.
Does the golf club keep all the savings generated?
Absolutely! Our business is about making golf clubs as many savings as possible.
How do we make our money?
Membership fees go towards covering the day to day running of the business. These salaries are made up by small commissions agreed with suppliers once agreed targets are reached.
What if I feel my pricing is already good?
We do not doubt that you have already negotiated fantastic prices for you golf club. Economies of scale are the reason we have been able to achieve such fantastic rates and services with our approved suppliers. These prices will become apparent during our initial chat. If you do feel you currently get the best prices, why not give us a call to make sure. It won't cost you anything!
So, I join. How long before I can start making savings?
In order for you to make the very most out of your membership we ask you to complete a very simple suppliers analysis. This will take around 15 minutes of your time and is done online. Once this analysis is complete we will send you the GMG digital manual which will give you access to all our approved suppliers contact details and agreed terms. We will update our suppliers of your inclusion and you will be free to contact the suppliers and start making savings the following working day.
What happens if I have a problem with any of the suppliers in the future?
If you have any concerns relating to either the pricing or service you receive from any GMG approved supplier we would encourage you to contact the GMG head office immediately. With a collective potential purchasing spend of over £500 million we do have leverage with suppliers which can benefit you in both price and service.
