Tender for Catering Franchise 2019-20

As we prepare for another busy golfing season in 2020, we now invite interested parties to apply for the franchise agreement to provide all aspects of our Catering operations. In addition, there is also the opportunity to manage our Bar services as well as our newly refurbished on-site holiday let cottage if you so desire to provide you with an additional revenue source. Closing date for 'Expressions of Interest' is Monday 21st October 2019.

The oldest Golf Club on Royal Deeside, Aboyne has won many plaudits as one of the best maintained, varied and challenging inland courses in Scotland. Such is Aboyne's growing reputation, it was recently selected by governing bodies ‘the R&A’ and ‘Scottish Golf’ to host various national and regional flagship competitions.

As we prepare for another busy golfing season in 2020, we now invite interested parties to apply for the franchise agreement to provide all aspects of our Catering operations.  

In addition, should you so desire there is the opportunity to also manage our Bar services as well as our newly refurbished on-site holiday let cottage if you so desire to provide you with an additional revenue source.  

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 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 hospitality industry.  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

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

Prior experience of the management of holiday accommodation lets would be advantageous (if you wish to be considered for running the holiday let). 

We are open to negotiation on a mutually beneficial contractual agreement. That is, we would consider applications from other catering establishments, or those wishing to set up a catering business where providing catering for the Club is not the only avenue of income.

We encourage applicants to propose a structure that would maximise joint benefit.

The club would prefer the successful franchisee to commence on 1st November 2019 or shortly thereafter but we recognise this will be subject to potential notice period.  Ideally the caterer would be in post before the run up to our busy festive season.
