Golf is firmly established as the corporate sport of choice. Businesses ranging from small-to-medium enterprises through to the blue chip companies listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange use golf as an accepted practice for developing business opportunities by building relationships with those individuals that are considered important to the future growth and development of their business.
If you are one of the above-mentioned small-business owners or a corporate executive, one of your biggest hurdles, both to securing lucrative new contracts and sales and to making new business alliances, is the fact that it can be incredibly difficult to meet the right people in the right companies. When you do eventually meet the right people, they are usually pressed for time or involved in other day-to-day headaches associated with running a company.
However, by purchasing a fourball in The Business Invitational, you not only get to invite the people you want to meet, and talk to, but you get to meet them in a relaxed, non-business environment, where you really get the opportunity to engage with them. Not to mention, you doing it while enjoying a round of golf! As all business owners and corporate executives are aware, business success is as much about relationship building as it is about tactics and business acumen. Playing golf is one of the best ways to build rapport with your clients, suppliers and other key role players in your industry.
The Business Invitational presented by African Thunder Events is a series of golf days guaranteed to help your company enhance its existing business relationships and provide you with the opportunity to create new business associations. The league is a series of eight golf days played between March & September. The Business Invitational gives fourball owners a monthly opportunity to entertain, network and play with their business partners on some of the top golf courses Johannesburg has to offer. Selected golf courses include Serengeti Golf & Wildlife Estate, Houghton Golf Club, Pecanwood Golf & Country Estate, Country Club Johannesburg, Randpark Golf Club, and The Els Club Copperleaf as well as the two courses based at the Sun City Resort, Gary Player Country Club and Lost City Golf Club.
Fourball owners have been granted sole discretion when selecting their partners at the various golf days. Teams will compete as split fourballs; hence there will be an opportunity to invite business associates you would like to entertain at these top courses or similarly, network with any of the other companies participating in The Business Invitational who could potentially become future business partners. There is also incentive for you to invite some of your employees as a token of your appreciation for their hard work and service to the business.
The Business Invitational is certainly not only about business networking opportunities. As we all know, the business world is an extremely competitive, and oft-times hostile environment. Hence, there is no reason why a corporate golf league should be any less competitive. There are some truly fantastic prizes on offer at the monthly league dates and a trip to Fancourt will be awarded to the winners of the respective leagues. A game of golf at one of Johannesburg’s most exclusive golf clubs and golf hospitality packages will also be presented to 2nd and 3rd place respectively. If that wasn’t enough, fourball owners stand a chance to win a raffle prize to visit the Home of Golf in Scotland and all participants in The Business Invitational could find themselves and a partner jetting off to Spain to play golf in the astoundingly beautiful Algarve region.
Utilise The Business Invitational to provide your business with a hassle-free experience that includes a variety of value-added services such as video swing analysis, trick shot golf shows, hole-in-one competitions, whisky and wine tasting sessions and many more services that only a golf day can offer. We have created a platform where your organisation has a unique opportunity to build long-term relationships that will certainly contribute towards the future growth and development of your business at a price which we are convinced offers businesses tremendous value for money. There is an old saying in business – you have to spend money to make money. When it comes to marketing and networking, spending that money on a fourball in The Business Invitational could be the smartest thing you ever did for your business.CLICK HERE for more information
