What we do
EnvoyGolf was established in Oct 2019 to connect skills with needs for golf clubs across borders. This involved bringing greenkeepers from Scandinavia to work on golf courses in Australia. With border closures due to Covid, we sourced course staff from the domestic market. More recently, we launched our executive recruitment capability.
Our foundation and current focus is on helping golf clubs source the course staff most are struggling to recruit.
While there are greater needs through the summer growing season, the skills shortages are year round. With the onset of Covid, and related border closures, our ability to access any staff from Scandinavia or other countries has been paused for the time being.
However, the demand for course staff has only increased and to meet this demand we have successfully tapped into local domestic markets, recruiting students, backpackers and others new to working in the golf industry.
Once borders open we can once again bring in experienced greenkeepers to meet seasonal and ongoing staffing demands and at the same time provide them a great work and life experience.
Open borders will also provide offshore seasonal opportunities for local Australian and New Zealand greenkeepers to experience the same thing working with golf clubs in the northern summer.
This capability assists clubs with the appointment of their key executive positions, from CEO/General Manager down through all department heads. With over 30 years of experience in executive recruitment at our disposal, we have successfully appointed these roles for leading golf clubs in Australia and New Zealand.
A snapshot of Our Journey
In October 2019, EnvoyGolf began recruiting experienced greenkeepers from Sweden and Norway to work as summer casuals at golf clubs across three states in Australia.
In the summer of 2020/2021 amongst the Covid pandemic, we focused our efforts on the domestic market, placing several green staff to assist golf clubs across four states and territories.
In April 2021 we launched our senior executive appointments capability. In this short time, we have already been privileged to become a trusted name with some of Australia and New Zealand's top golf clubs.
Looking to the future, when international travel becomes possible, our operations will expand globally once again. EnvoyGolf will recruit and assist experienced greenkeepers and golf industry professionals from the northern hemisphere into Australia and New Zealand. Further, we look forward to helping our domestic staff experience working in the northern hemisphere during the northern summers, building skills and lifelong experience for their return.
