Heather Godwin, President of Todd Godwin Construction, Inc. dba Precision Golf, and her husband Todd had crafted a niche in the landscaping and construction business by specializing in golf course construction and renovation. Golf courses are constantly in need of maintenance beyond keeping the greens manicured. Especially during the winter months many courses suffer from erosion and deterioration. Additionally, the owners make changes to the courses and the greens to keep things new and interesting for their clientele.
Precision Golf provided sprig installation, built greens, installed fairway drainage, bunker development (sorry guys, they do that too), and tee construction. They had developed a good reputation and worked from Florida into the Carolina’s and were getting more and more inquiries. However they were concerned that during the off season their employees would leave for steady work elsewhere. This was a large problem in that these employees were experienced in the job requirements and would be difficult to replace.
Heather approached their bank, Darby Bank, for a working capital loan in order to keep their employees in place. Darby Bank identified an opportunity for SBAC to provide Heather with a SBA MicroLoan. SBAC reviewed the request and was able to put the needed capital in place not only saving jobs but keeping a business viable by allowing valued, experienced employees in place.
