Corporate Golf North East Event

Thursday 8th October

Linden Hall Championship Course, Northumberland

With social distancing certain to be part of the new normal the way in which companies interact both internally and externally by getting involved in charity events is evolving.  With that in mind, the golf course remains a safe environment to relax and build relationships.  In line with the current pandemic we have updated our policy to assure our clients your safety is a priority and you can find our covid-secure guidelines here.
Join us for the North East England qualifying event of Business Fours, the national business golf tournament.
Perfect for any companies in Newcastle, Sunderland, Tees Valley, Durham and beyond.
Teams of four will take part in the stableford tournament and your team can be made up of colleagues, clients or business connections.

NETWORKING

The Business Fours Corporate North East event provides the opportunity to make new connections in a relaxed environment on the golf course.  Teams of four come along to the event and your team can be made up of colleagues, clients or business connections.  You can play together or be split up for networking purposes depending on your preference but most teams tend to split up.

The format will be a 4 ball aggregate Stableford i.e. the combined Stableford score of the 4 members of your team will be your score.  There are no maximum handicaps for players with an official club handicap but a maximum of 18 will be allocated to those without.

PLAY FOR YOUR CHOSEN CHARITY

Throughout the 2020 season of Business Fours, England’s National business golf tournament we are maintaining our commitment to donating 10% of revenue to charity and this will be donated to the chosen charity of the overall winning team.

All golfers and companies getting involved will be encouraged to fundraise for their chosen charities in the build up to the events and we’ll have charity fundraising activities on the day.  Our events have raised over £150,000 for charity and it is a great opportunity to fundraise for your chosen charity in advance of the events and with any luck you might win our donation.

TEAMBUILDING

Prizes will also be on offer for the best 4-ball on the day as well as nearest the pin, longest putt and longest drive competitions.  Players will have the chance to win £2,500 for their chosen charity should they hit a hole in one at the Corporate Golf North East event.

The North East event is one of four qualifiers we have ahead of the national final which is being held at the Priory Golf Resort on the Championship Course where a hole in one will win your charity £10,000.

The highest 5 Stableford scoring teams from the Corporate Golf North East event will qualify for the national final.
