Free Golf Clinics For Hospitality Workers

January 8, 2017

Saying he feels it would be beneficial for people working in the tourism industry to be “golf literate,” golf professional Kim Swan will be reintroducing a free weekly clinic at Port Royal Golf Course for hospitality workers during the winter months.

Mr Swan said, “We at Port Royal Golf Development Program are committed to growing the game of golf and enhancing the on island visitor experience. We offered this initiative last year and had a few respondents but feel compelled to repeat the offer.

“Port Royal Golf Course is an important part of Bermuda’s tourism product and we recognize the importance of our workers in the industry who direct golfers around the island.

“We feel it would be beneficial for as many persons working in the tourism industry to not only be golf literate but experience hitting the golf ball.

“This is something we are also doing with our own in house staff who do not golf,” Mr Swan added.

    Here we go.
    Bandwagon job.
    Bite all you want.

    Sorta like telling a bartender how to mix a dark and stormy.
    Happy 2017.

      My comment was a part of a social experiment I am doing when it comes to prominent people and their standing in the community.

      It is working in my favor as to how people react to negative but support it when they feel they have to defend.

    Missing Riddell’s Bay Golf course! The best course I’ve ever played while in Bermuda. Please reopen Riddells Bay! Thank you, Lucinda Amir, Austin, Texas

    This is a good idea. It’s the little things that separate a good destination from a great one.

    Mr Swan is a great instructor. You wont find anyone more pationate about golf and their country than Kim. He is a great ebasador for our country , Port Royal and golf. I wish I was still in hospitality.

    You know, Kim is a good dude. He has taught all my kids, and he’s one of those that when the lesson ends at 2, he’ll still be on the putting green with them at 2.30, never a thought to charge more, he just loves the game.

    I didn’t always agree with his politics, but this stuff defines a man, and Kim is a good one.

    And if you think these free lessons are a bad thing, or there is some kind of agenda, shame on you. He’s just a good dude.

    This is great. Having spent a decade in hospitality, from front desks to spas to reservations and more, it really helps to talk the lingo with the guests. Whether it’s understanding what they’re needing, or just striking up a conversation. If I was still in the industry, I would definitely jump on board. It’s the little things that make the difference.
