The part owner and general manager of Hidden River Golf Club must prepare for a shareholders' meeting where he will present an overview of the club's financial health and his recommendations on three key issues: whether or not to expand the nine-hole course to 18 holes; the pricing scheme for the upcoming golfing season; and whether to keep or eliminate seasonal golf memberships. Students will be exposed to the usefulness of analytical tools such as the statement of changes in financial position, ratio analysis, cost behavior, and projected statements. They will also see how in-depth analysis is required before any decisions can be made or potential opportunities exploited, and that differential analysis, as a management tool, can aid in decision making.
