England Golf has partnered with PMD Business Finance, one of the largest independent business finance providers in the UK, to extend its support for clubs. PMD Business Finance is the latest addition to England Golf’s network of Preferred Partners, and will help affiliated clubs ensure their finance agreements are both competitive and appropriate.
PMD will benchmark any finance facility without obligation, and has pledged to have the best interests of the club and England Golf at the forefront of any offer it makes.
Iain Lancaster, England Golf Club Support Officer, commented: “We are delighted to welcome PMD Finance as one of our Preferred Partners. Borrowing money can be a big step for a golf club and this partnership will give them confidence in their arrangements.”
PMD currently lends over £100m per year and, as well as lending its own money, it works with 40 funding partners to make flexible, competitive and relevant offers to clients.
PMD already works with golf clubs, financing a diverse range of assets including course machinery as well as club house and pro shop equipment. Assets range from greens machinery, vehicles and irrigation systems right through to security, kitchen fit outs, furniture and simulators.
It can also provide business loans for more intangible projects and can refinance existing green keeping assets to release cash.
Peter Dobson PMD’s Managing Director commented: “We’d like to thank England Golf for this exciting opportunity and look forward to working closely with their affiliated clubs. We already have plenty of experience providing business finance transactions to golf clubs and look forward to growing our presence in the sector. We’re eager to benchmark any finance facilities that clubs are looking at, to ensure they are getting best advice and value.”
