First chance to join Golf England

12.20am 1st February 2002 - Management Topics

Golf clubs throughout England will soon get a chance to join Golf England and to save money on their annual club expenditure.

Invitation packs are being mailed at the beginning of February to 1,900 clubs, along with a preview of the first of many offers available through the group-buying scheme. Clubs are being offered 15 per cent off the cost of a range of fertiliser and ground-care treatment products as well as catering equipment items at less than half price.

Clubs will also receive a reminder copy of the Golf England presentation made in November and December at road shows around the country, promotional material to inform club and committee members and two copies of the contract together with explanatory notes.

Dale Clements, marketing director for Golf England, says: “Clubs should receive two copies of the pack in early February and we know from our telephone calls that many clubs are ready to join as soon as they have their contracts.”

Once a club returns its application to join, it will receive a welcome pack. This will include a CD-ROM catalogue of all the current products and services available on the group purchasing scheme which will allow them to place their first orders.
