Success Stories: Leongatha Golf Club
JANUARY 18,2023 | SUCCESS STORIES | By MICHAEL JERICHO
We are excited to share a recent success story from one of our community members, Leongatha, a local club in Leongatha South. They have been able to improve their operations and provide better service to their members using ClubsHR. We had a chat with Justin from Leongatha Golf Club about how ClubsHR helped his business with employee management and rostering.
Leongatha Golf Club is a hidden treasure in Victoria’s South Gippsland. It is a scenic course layout that covers terrain from hilly to gently rolling with wide santa-ana couch fairways flanked by natural bushland. The club has around 700 members and 15 staff. Rated in the top 100 public access courses in Australia, the 18 holes are varied and challenging.
I am a golf pro by trade and professional. I have been a PGA member for over 30 years and I run public and member based courses. In 2020 I made the move into golf club management.
Previously we had no time keeping and excel based rostering, which was a challenge and time consuming. I originally reached out to RosterElf but the board at that time did not want to move forward with a platform.
Karel reached out a couple months ago to set up a ClubsHR account. Between Karel and Braden from Account For It, who set up our Xero account, the implementation was a breeze and completed in a very short period. Since then, our staff have been clocking and out. I have confidence they are working and are on site. I am finding a saving of around 2 hours a week using ClubsHR’s rostering and payroll which I can spend on other areas of the business.

We use as many local suppliers as possible. We actively run golf days for health care networks in conjunction with elders which raises money for locals. We provide the elders with the golf course and “vehicle” to run the day and which they donate a share of $50k to a local in need. We also recently ran a charity day for Amputee Golf Victoria so all abilities and amputee’s golfers can get more programs running.
Ease of use for the management team. Very easy for staff to use and the management team knows which staff are on deck at any one time, never mind peace of mind for compliance.
Thanks for the chat, Justin!
