Corporate Hospitality for Golf Events

Corporate events management and hospitality thrives as a £1.2 billion industry in the UK. Taking the 2015 Rugby World Cup as an example, 80% of the business leaders surveyed believed that corporate hospitality was a vital part of their marketing strategy. The return on investment is high.

As a private party, with a mixed guest list or with corporate hospitality as a focus, golf events are a splendid, personally rewarding experience for all attendees.

Two golf events which we are hugely proud to be offering corporate hospitality at in 2017 are:

  • The US Masters – 3rd-9th April – Augusta, U.S.A.
  • The Open Championships – 19th-23rd July – Royal Birkdale.

At the Open Championships, our pre-tailored corporate hospitality packages are selling quickly so please don’t procrastinate. We have spaces available in the Champion’s Club and the 1860 Club.
