In2Events inaugural client golf day took place on Friday 4th May 2018. The event was hosted in conjunction with Foxhills Club & Resort in Surrey and featured clients from a number of companies including The STR Group, X3 Solutions, Elvis Communications, Selectec & Elatec amongst others.
There were four groups of four-balls each captained by In2Events staff and the format of the day consisted of both team and individual Stableford format tournaments. Guests were greeted on the morning of the event with bacon rolls and hot drinks as the competition was introduced by the Foxhills pro and teams were unveiled.
With everyone eager to get on the golf course, Foxhills offered the group complimentary driving range bays, to warm up their swings and get their first glimpse into the competition. Awaiting the guests after their practice outside the club-house was a line of golf buggies, each one allocated to a pairing with their names emblazed across the front - a nice touch! Alongside this, we also provided branded In2Events and Foxhills golf towels as giveaways for each guest and a memory of the day. The In2Events staff all wore branded golf shirts with our logo proudly displayed on the back and we had additional members of the In2 team bombing around the golf course all day with a refreshments buggy in order to interact with guests and keep them well hydrated!
The weather was immaculate and the golf course from the first tee outstanding, with the scene set and practice done it was down to the first group to tee-off. 18-holes of intense golf followed with the longest drive competition taking place on the 6th and nearest pin on the 11th adding further concentration from each four-ball. Throughout the golf, live scoring was available to everyone through the golf genius app, giving an insight into the leaderboard and adding that little bit of pressure to keep playing well if you were at the top.
The live leaderboard was switched off at the 15th so the last few holes were all to play for, not knowing who was going to win! The last group came up the 18th hole with the rest of the guests watching - no pressure! And it was back to the clubhouse for the prize-giving and a two-course lunch.
Lunch was served alongside a few drinks as the golfers reminisced over the missed putts and huge drives before the winners were announced. There were prizes for the longest drive, and nearest to the pin as well as for the overall team winner, individual winner and runner-up.
The day was a huge success! Foxhills Club & Resort were outstanding in their service and the golf course was simply beautiful - credit to the team there especially with the recent bad weather. We couldn't recommend this venue highly enough for a corporate golf day or conference.
Interaction with clients in this kind of environment and in a social context is invaluable in itself, with everybody getting the opportunity to touch on business whilst enjoying the relaxed format of the day; leveraging the expert knowledge of their In2Events contacts whilst building valuable relationships with the team – Something we at In2Events pride ourselves on and the reason our clients continue to work with us.
