As the date (5th – 7th April) for the brand new Manchester Golf show approaches, the organisers have announced they are launching a new initiative to find North West England’s Longest Drive Champion. Working with show partner and leading regional newspaper Golfers Local (distributed to over 400 Clubs and Driving ranges in the area) the organisers are inviting Club Pros and Captains to get involved and host a competition during the month of March.
Free to organise on a ‘drive by drive’ basis or as an ‘event’ at their club, the promoters are offering ALL entrants the chance to win a Grand Prize of Monarch Flights + Three Nights Accommodation and Two Rounds of Golf at La Manga, courtesy of YourGolfTravel.com
In addition, all those taking on the ‘Golfers Local – Club Challenge’ will automatically receive a Free ticket to the show (worth £15) + a Free annual subscription to social networking site TheSocialGolfer.com (worth £20) + A Free £50 Voucher off their next golf break with YourGolfTravel.com
Each Club winner will then be invited to represent their club in the Grand Final at the Manchester Show, whereby they will compete to be the region’s Long Drive Champion. The winner will also be featured in Golfers Local May edition. Finally, there is an opportunity for the clubs taking part in the Club Challenge to earn revenue for their clubs as The Golf Show Group will share commission on ticket sales with the participating Pro/Club.
Entry is £10 for those participating in the challenge.
Ian Mullins – Marketing Director of the Golf Show Group said, “We are very excited about finding North West England’s Longest Drive Champion, as this promotion perfectly echoes the brand values of the show by involving both Clubs and Golfers. I am really looking forward to seeing the winner on stage at EventCity and to this becoming an annual event!”
Paul Chapple – Editor and Publisher of Golfers Local said, “This is a fantastic project to be involved with and we urge all those clubs in the Golfers Local distribution area to get behind this initiative and support us in our search for a champion. Having such an established show on our doorstep is something we believe the area needs and we look forward to making the show a huge success!”
