Abstract

Risk management is important to many organizations to identify areas of their operations that could potentially cause damage to their reputation and brand. Golf associations can fall at risk of negligence from situations with participants or spectators to the severity of weather and copyright infringement based on the expanding nature of social media. This study examines two sections of the Professional Golf Associations of America; Northern Texas and Southern Texas, to identify the main areas of risk within their organization through a survey of their employees. Results found weaknesses in risk management and copyright prevention which allowed for improvement through a proposed risk management plan.
