NGL Golf, one of the UK’s leading corporate golf events companies, is entering a new era of its 43-year history following the retirement of its founder PGA Professional Nick Lunn.
The company, which was set up in 1979, remains in good hands, however, as it is now being run by two of NGL Golf’s longest-serving employees, Rob Cooper and Mike Pearce.
Specialising in high-end corporate and charity golf projects, the company has been involved in notable events such as the BMW Golf Cup International, which is the largest amateur golf tournament in the world, and the headline UK Cancer Research Charity Golf Day, NGL Fore Charity partnered by AT&T, which to date has raised nearly £800,000 towards vital research.
“I have been part of NGL Golf for 30 years and have fantastic memories of all the events and projects that we have been part of,” said Rob Cooper. “Nick is a great friend and has dedicated his career to the success of this business. I know that working alongside Mike, and the rest of the team, we can build on the already established notability of NGL Golf and take the business forward into a new era.”
Through the transition of ownership, the new directors have already made some significant changes to the operational management due to Covid-19. Unable to offer golf events, the branding and graphic arm of the business was promoted to offer a complete solution for companies requiring Covid-19 physical assets. This has continued to build momentum, as clients return to face-to-face meetings and events, and an area that will be developed under the new management.
“With our refreshed focus and outlook this is going to be a very exciting time for NGL Golf,” said Mike Pearce. “Our goal is to grow our portfolio of clients and diversify our offering to make our services more accessible. We have a very experienced team and feel that this should be available to businesses regardless of their size.
“Having already been through the difficult Covid-19 period, we are determined to drive forward and ensure NGL Golf sets a clear benchmark within the industry. I would personally like to thank all our clients and partners that have made this opportunity possible and look forward with a renewed energy to making this a success.”
With events, management and branding at the core NGL Golf are now looking to enhance their offering to existing clients and to source new markets where they can continue to forge relationships and grow the business.
