Testimonials

“Six years ago Mike Orloff from Golf Industry Central successfully hired our General Manager and now again has completed a thorough process to find our next one. Mike provided an invaluable and very speedy assistance in the process of selecting attractive applicants and went on to successfully appointing us a suitable new General Manager. Mike’s experience and network in the golf industry was instrumental in streamlining the process.

On behalf of the Board of the Southport Golf Club, thank you for the support Golf Industry Central provided for us. The total process was very professional and we are grateful for your input and feedback.

“After some extensive due diligence on selecting a golf recruitment agency to work with, we engaged Golf Industry Central to assist in the recruitment of a new general manager when our general manager retired after 11 years. Mike Orloff from Golf Industry Central came highly recommended to us by others in the industry that we spoke with.

We were delighted with Mike and Andrew’s involvement from the beginning. They demonstrated a sound understanding of what we wanted to achieve and were there every step of the way updating us with their progress.

We could not have been more pleased with the engaging and highly professional manner in which they dealt with our needs and in ensuring we achieved the best outcome for our club. 

I also note that the speed of the selection process was fully professional and was right on track with our agreed time line. We are very happy with the final outcome and the successful candidate has integrated into the club very well.”

“When preparing for a new position in the industry, I was delighted when Mike Orloff asked me to send through my cover and resume for him and the team to look over for me.  The suggested changes made a big impact on how my cover letter and resume was presented and I believe I received the phone call for the all important interview thanks to the assistance from Mike and Andrew.
