It is hard to fix problems. It is much easier to prevent them.
I spent 6 years serving as the PDGA Competition Director (back when that position existed) and more than anything else I spent my time trying to fix the problems of clubs and tournaments. My advice flows from my experiences and from seeing the same problems repeating themselves.
It is easy to form a club. Declare yourself to be a club. Now you are a club. The areas which are most likely to cause problems are money, authority and work load.
Money : the largest area of potential problems. Disc golf is a poor sport. Few people make any money at it. The few who make money generally don't make much (unless they are a big manufacturer) so the logical conclusion is money will not be an issue. It doesn't seem to work that way. So settle financial rules first. Most clubs do not try to pay any member for any service-the pure volunteer club. If any profit is made on an event then the profit is spent to promote the sport.
The pure volunteer club is a fine model if everyone can live with it. But make it clear. No one gets paid for anything. Expenses can be covered but time is free. If any benefit is given to any club member it should not be in monetary form. Let it be a year end party where the food and beer are provided or a staff tee shirt for those work an event.
If the pure volunteer model is what the club wants then the President should never touch the money. Not even hold it for a moment. The treasurer handles the money or the designated-treasurer but not the Prez. I was Prez for a club for many years and never touched the money. Not a penny. Ever.
Find the richest, most trustworthy member of the club to be the Treasurer.
Authority and Work Load. In volunteer organizations those who do the most work get the most say in how things are done. Make that clear from the get go. So whoever runs a weekly league get to call the shots. If a member isn't helping with a particular project then they don't get a vote. If a Prez leaves that post the new Prez runs the show.
What happened before when someone else did the work creates no precedent unless the new staff wants to do it that way. The authority being tied to the work load provides an incentive for members to do the work. It also lays blame and praise on those who did the work. They carried out their own plan and will learn from the results.
