About

Kanda Golf was founded in 1993 by Jerry Kilby.  “Kanda” stands for “KandA” (Kilby and Associates), and since its formation, Kanda Golf has brought together the most experienced independent golf managers to match the needs of the client, or the project.

Kanda Golf offers practical business advice based on experience gained in senior management positions in the golf industry for over 35 years – not solely marketing theory.

In language that can be understood by those who are not marketing professionals, Kanda Golf provides clients with pragmatic solutions that can be incorporated into their business by their own staff, or can undertake a range of marketing services on behalf of the client.
