Abstract/Contents:Anyone who has ever worked in a middle or upper management capacity in a country club environment has encountered being on the receiving end of member's frustration. Some helpful rules are; 1) Belief in a higher power 2) Belief in the organization 3) A waivering, but sufficient belief in one's fellow man 4) Belief in yourself. There are also a few basics to go with the rules, 1) Make sure you do not provoke confrontations. 2) Do not make enemies. 3) Do not get into power plays. 4) Let 'em blow and go. A simple rule of the thumb is an employee can be replaced easier than a member can. Always tell your boss when an incident occurs and let him or her run interference for you if necessary. Country clubs are no place for feuds which can affect relationships for months and even years.
