NETWORKING

The Business Fours Corporate North West 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 West event.

The North West 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 West event will qualify for the national final.
