Golf company mixes business with pleasure

GOLF and business has always been a perfect match. Now the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce has made it official!

For it has awarded a three-year contract to the fledgling Golf & Business Together company which has launched a schedule of 10 events at leading courses across the region.

The deal includes organising corporate golf days and encouraging networking opportunities in addition to supporting business people interested in taking up the game.

Spearheading the drive are founders and directors Mark Goodwin, Tim Roberts and Mark Brown.

Roberts said: “The aims are to create a membership of like-minded people who love golf and business and want to be part of a professional group that provides the opportunity to invite its customers, including potential ones, and key staff to an event.

“There is a massive opportunity in the business community to provide this type of service and the GM Chamber of Commerce has the same mind set.

“You don’t have to be a member of the chamber to join GBT which is also offering a chance to win an all-expenses paid weekend in Portugal for its grand final.

“We already have 115 members and  our target is to increase the numbers to 300.”

Marriott Worsley Park PGA professional David Screeton and women’s tour player Kelly Tidy help with the golf side of the business and encourage members to take lessons.

Meanwhile, the first of 10 competitions was at Southport & Ainsdale and raised funds for the On Course Foundation.

 

REMAINING FIXTURES: April 9 – West Lancs; May 21 – Delamere Forest; June 11 – Wilmslow; June 30 – Bolton; July 28 – Marriott Worsley Park; Aug 19 –Whitefield; Sept 8 – Clitheroe; Sept 21 – Silloth-on-Solway;Nov 8 – Formby.
