About the Author

From 1993 until 2007 Mel was the Golf Tournament Director at Braemar Country Club in Tarzana, California, a ClubCorp, Inc. facility. During those years he was involved in every aspect of planning thousands of fundraising tournaments. Helping charities achieve their financial and "attendee experience" goals. He also created and ran many seminars, taking charities and corporations through the steps required to run successful tournaments. Those seminars had such an impact that ClubCorp made it mandatory for all their clubs nationwide, to hold at least one seminar every year, based on his presentations. In 2004 ClubCorp presented Mel with their "Super Star" award.
