    Overworked

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI worked as an intern, and the other intern staff was amazing. Free housing, great location, and the occasional free golf.

    ConsWorking 60+ hours a week with little pay and 0 recognition from tournament directors. You are treated as a work horse and nothing more. They also do absolutely nothing to help you find a full time position after the internship ends.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow a little appreciation towards your interns!!!!!!!!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Avoid at all cost

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere are honestly some pros of working here, especially if you can make it work for a short time. Many of the students and parents that you meet through the tour and academy are great people, students are hard working and are passionate about what they are training for. Opportunities in the market are really good, but that is probably the only thing keeping this company working.

    ConsC-level management is beyond terrible. They consistently lie to employees, vendors, partners, and even customers...have even gone as far as cook the books to make the company look better/different than what it really is. They encourage making promises that are impossible to keep, both to customers and employees. They are obsessive micro-managers yet the CEO is there half the time and the COO is there between 10 and 4, but leaves constantly to take lunches, go to the gym, and get her hair done. She even brings in her two young children and makes the employees babysit for hours at a time.

    They haven't had a profitable year in at least 3 years, probably much more than that. The only thing keeping the company afloat is the private equity group that owns it, but is currently trying to sell.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't drive the company in the ground and then force employees to talk to bill collectors for you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A terrible place to work if you want to have your own life.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Hilton Head Island, SC

    ProsHilton Head Island and lots of golf
    Kids are mostly fun to be around
    Not brain surgery - work isn't real challenging

    ConsThey are looking for slaves not employees
    Management does not like to share information for employees
    If you don't drink the kool-aid you will be fired for not being a team player

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate the people you have and don't treat them like pawns and morons. Take a close look at some of your leadership team and how they treat their "teams". You have a good model, but you treat people like crap.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Move on....

    Tournament Ops (Former Employee) Hilton Head Island, SC

    ProsPretty free to do whatever you feel like doing. Leadership will completely trust you to do your job.

    ConsWhile leadership will completely trust you to do your job, they will not tell you if you have done something wrong until they come to fire you.

    Poor leadership.
    Leadership thinks they are hot-to-trot, when they actually are mocked and laughed at due to their incredibly elitist attitudes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGrow up!

    Can't pay their bills or employees

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIt's an opportunity to work with young people who are working hard toward achieving their dreams of playing college golf.

    ConsThis company is in shambles. They haven't paid outstanding bills from over 6 months ago and employees are using personal credit cards to pay bills for the company - and those employees are now getting stiffed on those bills.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management is too full of themselves to see the problem is their decision making. You should also reward employees for good performance instead of stealing their credit.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
