Creating Space in a Small Bag Room
How has this idea enhanced your club's operation, etc.?
In an effort to create more room for junior bag storage, we decided to build a storage unit that held bags horizontally instead of the typical vertical storage. By building a unit that went up the wall, juniors are able to easily see where their bag belongs and we are able to store more bags in the same footprint and the bag room stays tidy.
How was this idea implemented, and what have been the club members' reactions?
The bag room at our facility is very small and was quickly becoming smaller as more and more juniors wanted to store their clubs. Most bag rooms are set up for vertical storage but because we didn’t have vertical space, we decided to try horizontal. Not only did this ‘cubby’ style storage allow for more bags to be stored in the space it also allowed juniors better access their clubs.
Before the new storage system, we stored approximately five sets of clubs and now we store closer to 30 with enough room left to keep rental sets and spare junior clubs for clinics. The new layout had made the bag room an efficient use of space that stays clean and organized. A little muscle and a few supplies made a big difference.
