The Portuguese Golf Club set to expand

9.03am 26th June 2009 - Corporate

With the aim of expansion and future sale, the shareholders of The Portuguese Golf Club are actively looking for a small consortium of golfers who are interested in travel, marketing and the media. “This is a unique investment opportunity to become a member of a golf marketing consortium,” says company Chairman, Peter Callaghan.

The Portuguese Golf Club (PGC) is a UK limited company established in 2006. It is a membership club which offers members the best possible value golf breaks in Portugal, with the lowest online bookable green fees, discounted hotel accommodation, car hire, and recommended restaurants.

In 2008 the PGC published the first edition of ‘Golf Portugal’ and in September of this year will be publishing ‘Portugal Life’, the only Portugal lifestyle magazine published in the UK. It has recently secured a new title, The Senior Golfer, which it expects to publish in Spring 2010.

The PGC is the official travel partner to Portugal for the Foremost Golf buying group, which has direct access to 230 golf professionals and features regularly in the 133,000 weekly newsletters to UK golfers.

“The PGC has been approached by several property developers to market their resorts through its magazines, website and marketing network, in both a traditional and fractional format,” says Peter Callaghan. “To increase future business potential, the PGC is in the process of becoming The International Golf Club – its members, from the UK and other golfing nations, will enjoy worldwide benefits and its stable of international business partners will be unlimited,” he continued

In order to realise its potential, The PGC is seeking investment from those who can contribute “funding and enthusiasm” in return for an equity interest which should provide dividends within 3 years and profitable exit opportunities within 5 years.

Peter Callaghan concludes, “Anyone who would like further information should contact me via or telephone 01935 881762.”
