Cowboy Rules
We were recently at the National Golf Course Owners Golf Business Canada Conference in Calgary, Alberta. Of course with Calgary being a bit of a Cowboy town that played into the theme of the Conference. At both the opening and closing ceremonies Conference Chair, Reto Steiner (owner of Woodside Golf Course in Airdrie, Alberta) recited the Cowboy rules! The Cowboy rules are essentially a list of core values to follow in business and in life. They are as follows: 

  • Live each day with courage
  • Take pride in your work
  • Always finish what you start
  • Do what has to be done
  • Be tough but fair
  • When you make a promise, keep it
  • Ride for your brand
  • Talk less and say more
  • Remember that some things aren’t for sale
  • Know where to draw the line

This got us thinking about our core values and the way we run our business and how we help other golf course owners and operators. We thought it was a good time to share the CK Golf core business values again and what each mean to us. They are:

  • Trust
  • Consistency
  • Adaptability
  • Business First

You can read a detailed explanation of how we use each in our everyday business life here!
