In the episode, Armitage discusses how he was able to vastly improve the international visibility, number of rounds played, and merchandise sold by modernizing the way that Le Golf National is run.


He additionally discusses how hosting the Ryder Cup led to the growth of golf in France and at his golf course. Since the announcement of Le Golf National as a Ryder Cup venue, the golf course has become a bucket list destination for golfers all around the world. Armitage explains how the facility guaranteed that success by implementing these golf management strategies:

  • Adding golf carts

  • Changing pricing

  • Hiring English-speaking staff

  • Revamping the website

  • Introducing mobile applications
