Tender for Catering and Bar Franchise - Aug19

We invite interested parties to apply for the franchise agreement to supply and manage all aspects of our Bar and Catering services. In addition, following the completion of a full refurbishment of our on-site greenkeeper’s cottage this year, we also offer the option for tenderers to manage this facility as a holiday let on our behalf, if they so desire, to provide an additional revenue source. The franchise will become available from 1st November 2019. Closing date for 'Expressions of Interest' is midnight Wednesday 28th August 2019.

Aboyne Golf Club is a well-established private members club situated around 30 miles West of Aberdeen and is renowned as one of the most beautiful and panoramic golfing venues in the region.

The oldest Golf Club on Royal Deeside, it has won many plaudits as one of the best maintained, varied and challenging inland courses in North East Scotland. Such is Aboyne's growing reputation, in 2018 it was selected by the R&A to hold the Ladies ‘Coronation Foursomes’ Area Finals. In addition Aboyne was also chosen to host the ‘Scottish Golf Men’s North East Open: a world amateur ranking event. 

We now invite interested parties to apply for the franchise agreement to supply and manage all aspects of our Bar and Catering services.

In addition, following the completion of a full refurbishment of our on-site greenkeeper’s cottage this year, we also offer the option for tenderers to manage this facility as a holiday let on our behalf, if they so desire, to provide an additional revenue source. 

The franchise will become available from 1st November 2019.

Servicing a playing and social membership of around 600, the club offers a well-equipped industrial kitchen, with large bar area and dining room, with seating for around 90. The clubhouse has enviable 180º views across the course and beyond to the River Dee valley.

The position requires individuals or a company to manage all areas of our Bar and Catering operations providing a high level of food and service standards to match the quality of our golf course. The franchise presents opportunities to service on a daily basis our existing playing and social members as well as visiting groups and society golf outings. In addition, we have a busy programme of ‘Open’ competitions attracting golfers from across the region. We also hold occasional social events and offer the franchisee the option to lay on other events under our Licenced Premises agreement. The Club’s management Council recognises that there is further scope to develop our social membership offering to the local community and would look to the appointee to explore these opportunities once in post.

The role offers an opportunity to be your own boss and establish your own reputation and standing within the industry as you will be the focal point for all catering, bar (and potentially accommodation) services at the club. 

We anticipate the postholder will demonstrate the following attributes:-

• Hold appropriate food preparation and health and hygiene certificates

• Deliver quality food alongside customer focussed front of house services

• Demonstrate the ability to work on your own initiative as well as holding a key role in the highly regarded customer service offering that is Aboyne Golf Club

• Prior experience of the management of holiday accommodation lets would be advantageous (if applicable to your application) 

• Experience in providing similar franchised or restaurant service elsewhere would be preferred.

The club would ideally prefer the successful franchisee to commence on 1st November 2019. We recognise that this date may need to be negotiable dependent on notice period but would need to be in post before the run up to our busy festive season.
