Huxley Golf expands into France

12.02am 15th April 2003 - Corporate

Huxley Golf has further extended its representation throughout the British Isles and European mainland with the appointment of Albatros Golf Distribution in Cannes, in the south of France.

Raising to 15 the total number of authorised distributor/installers of Huxley Golf’s premier all-weather surfaces for golf, the appointment of Albatros represents an important additional link in a distributor network that already encompasses much of the United Kingdom as well as the Republic of Ireland, Switzerland, Austria and southern Portugal.

Following the re-design and re-launch of its website in late 2002, Huxley Golf has been receiving an increasing number of enquiries from golf and sports clubs, hotel and leisure resorts, golf driving ranges and private home-owners on the continent, particularly along the Mediterranean coast of France. The appointment of Albatros will enable Huxley Golf to provide a prompt, effective response to the high level of interest backed by professional local installation of its full range of top quality, low maintenance all-weather surfaces for golf.

These objectives were achieved within a few days of Albatros signing-up as a Huxley Golf distributor/installer with the securing by the firm of three excellent orders for Huxley all-weather surfaces. The first is for the supply and installation of a 600 sq ft (56 sq m) all-weather putting green with practice net and tees at a private home near Cannes. The second order was placed by St Philippe Golf Club and Academy at Biot Antipolis, located between Nice and Cannes.

This new course, which opened in September 2002, will soon have one of the largest all-weather practice tees ever supplied by Huxley Golf. Measuring 83 yards long by 4 yards wide (76m x 3.66m), the surface will be installed as part of the club’s impressive coaching and practice facilities. A similar large Huxley all-weather practice tee measuring 50 yards long by 4 yards wide (45m x 3.66m) has been ordered by the prestigious Royal Mougins Hotel and Golf Course near Cannes.

Albatros Golf Distribution is headed by Maurice Saucles and Francis Garcia, who offer a comprehensive sales and installation service for the full range of Huxley Golf all-weather surfaces. They are pleased to visit customers by appointment or invite them to see their demonstration Huxley green and tees near Cannes.

The Huxley website contains a colourful gallery of action photographs, together with full details on the company’s extensive range of premier all-weather surfaces for golf. Visitors can read the comments of a number of well-known golf professionals who use Huxley Golf surfaces for practice and there is also a direct e-mail enquiry link from the website to Huxley Golf.
