At the Open Championship at Royal Liverpool was Chairman of the Dellanzo Group of Companies, Paul Dellanzo who was celebrating their opening of another new company this time in the UK simply called DELLANZO focusing on all areas of design services, restaurant concepts and helping promote the game.
Director of Business Development, Emilio Dellanzo said: “We felt this the appropriate time to have a presence in the UK. My father grew up playing all his junior and Colts golf on England’s Golf Coast between Royal Liverpool and Royal Birkdale , this area is simply one of the best in the world for its quality of golf courses so when we looked at the UK we decided why not Liverpool? With excellent infrastructure, communications and transportation it was an easy choice. We are very happy to invest in Liverpool. The clincher perhaps was being able to get a season ticket at Liverpool Football Club!
“This is a world of ever closer collaboration and working with spirited teams, owners and Boards of Directors. We are driven by technology and are an asset management company but it is still a people business and we strive to remain on the cutting edge of systems, strategy and staff. Ours is a more exciting business than it has ever been, we put in our capital and experience and it gives us the opportunity to grow. We see some unique opportunities in the UK,” said Paul Dellanzo, “that are not solely golf centric but involve ancillary facilities and design of clubhouse interiors as well as clubhouses themselves.
“Many clubs are too dark, too old in average age and male oriented only and are not doing enough to make their facilities user friendly and exciting for ladies and juniors. In many cases by not understanding F&B operations and interior design are losing revenue opportunities in that area too as well as the potential to grow their memberships and daily fee golf.
