The Foremost Golf Club Buying Group has enjoyed a hugely successful launch, with several new partners and suppliers already on board.

The group now has partnerships with 21 suppliers, including the Regency Purchasing Group, forming part of Foremost’s commitment to widening the services it offers to its members through heavy investment. The success of the launch is outlined by the fact that so many suppliers have already signed up to work in conjunction with the Foremost Golf Club Buying Group.

Furthermore, Foremost have reached an agreement with more than 30 golf clubs, all of which will now benefit from extensive support from the Golf Club Buying Group.

As part of the new venture, Foremost now successfully provide extensive support with Marketing, Epos, Sales, Insurance and Administration, all of which helps members to refine the service they offer their customers.

It was a natural progression for Foremost to look to use the skills it had learned over the last two decades, helping golf professionals to help their clubs. The Golf Club Buying Group is simply the obvious progression from this.

Graham Starkey, Business Development Manager at Foremost Golf, said: “The launch of the Foremost Golf Club Buying Group has been going really well and has picked up some significant momentum.

“Being able to partner with 21 suppliers already, including multiple accounts with the Regency Purchasing Group, has allowed us to strengthen our proposition even further.”

Golf clubs are now under threat from outside influences and a gloomy economic climate, resulting in fewer rounds of golf and dropping demand for membership. These partnerships are sure to help resolve the issues the industry is facing by helping golf clubs save money at a crucial time.

Together Foremost Golf and partners will plug a gap in this market. Importantly, new associates like Regency have strong established agreements with suppliers in all major sectors, including food, drinks, sundries, utilities and waste management are an ideal partner for Foremost Golf.
