|During the past decade of operation, QGI has remained
at the forefront of the industry by consistently
maintaining the highest international standards of
service. Consequently, we have been able to forge
strong partnerships with some of the most prestigious
golf courses in the Asian Region, delivering them
tangible results based upon sound, workable and proven
Our achievements are the direct result of the
outstanding loyalty and commitment shown by our
employees, most of whom have been with the company
since the outset. By providing them with on-going
training, our goal has always been to ensure their
own career development.
Looking to the future, as Owners and Investors
increasingly realize the potential of professionally
maintained and managed golf courses to generate
considerable revenues and profits, I am confident
that our company is well positioned to prosper.
Asia is on the move again with golf course renovations,
construction and world class tournaments in nearly
every country in the region. However, there still
remains a void in fully carrying out the work in
all these areas, namely a knowledge base and the
training of the local populations to properly care
for the large investments being ear-marked for
the golf course industry.
The most advanced technologies, research and funding
for local research, is still thousands of miles
away! The cooperation needed between the industry
leaders in this region is now more vital than ever.
It starts with golf course owners, architects,
land planners, construction managers, superintendents
and general managers, who are entrusted to design,
build and maintain these long-term valuable assets.
We must not compromise our integrity by giving
into the “status quo “ that sometimes
seems the easiest option to take, as this route
leads to mediocrity and failed, or surely less
than successful, projects. Each of us in our respective
fields should strive to educate owners and their
representatives on what it really takes to create
a long term, viable golf course development. In
doing so, we will all benefit as we are part of
creating a new industry in this region. Communication
and cooperation is the key to success for us all.
