Revealed: Golf Power List 201227th June, 2012 by admin
50. Jackie Howe, chief executive of the National Golf Clubs’ Advisory Association (NGCAA)
There are few organisations that face more legal minefields than golf clubs, which have to deal with all the issues that companies face, plus they have several acres of land under their jurisdiction in which all sorts of problems can, and do, emerge.
The NGCAA has been providing legal advice to hundreds of clubs for years. Jackie, a former golf club manager who became CEO following the untimely death of her partner, former CEO Mike Shaw, in 2011, has transformed the organisation so there are a team of professional lawyers on standby to advise clubs. Without that advice, it’s not an exaggeration to say that some clubs could have gone under.
