Wentworth, the world-famous Golf and Country Club, has appointed Purple, the global lifestyle communications agency,  to handle their communications, programming and partnerships.

Founded in 1922, Wentworth Club boasts nearly a century of social and sporting history. Regarded as one of the world’s finest and most prestigious golf and country clubs, Wentworth is most notable as being the home of the BMW PGA Championship since 1984, host venue to the World Match Play for 43 years and the birthplace of the Ryder Cup.

Home to three world-class, 18-hole courses, (East Course, West Course and the Edinburgh Course), state-of-the-art tennis, gym and wellness facilities and 1920’s Clubhouse, Wentworth sets a new standard of luxury in the UK sports and leisure industry.

Previously owned by Richard Caring, the Club was acquired by Reignwood Investments in September 2014, whose Chairman, Dr. Chanchai Ruayrungruang, founded Reignwood Group in 1984.

Founded in Thailand in 1984, Reignwood Group is a global Chinese enterprise with headquarters in Hong Kong and offices in Singapore, Thailand, Canada, the USA and UK. For more information, visit
