NET WORKED AT STOKE PARK
WLG members, candidates and business professionals keen on deepening co-operation
It was a small, but select group of golf business experts that followed the invitation of Stoke Park’s Director of Golf Stuart Collier and met to gain some more insights about World of Leading Golf and the market situation as a whole. Just like many others on the British isles and in the northwestern part of Europe, Stoke Park is a a club of traditional structure, and as it turned out all attendants of the WLG Networking Day shared the belief that this is exactly what should be cultivated in the future.
Staying faithful to the quality and values of golf is not only the claim member clubs of World of Leading Golf have committed themselves to follow. In combination with the unique character and ambience of each club, the impeccable conditions on and off the golf courses are their means of differentiation. Aspects to be continually refined, inter alia with the help of the 59Club team whose CEO Simon Wordsworth and his cohort at the Aspiration Group Daniel Chidley came to join the talks at Stoke Park.
Since WLG integrates those main aspects of self-conception typical for British golf establishments, a number of other clubs feel correctly addressed. Amongst them Northumberland’s No. 1 golf destination Close House whose General Manager John Glendenning had come to listen in and is now preparing to have his club become a member of the association.
The hosts of the Networking Day were also very happy to have Guillaume Cadic, Head of Marketing of Le Golf National report on the developments at the 2018 Ryder Cup venue. The stunning French golf stadium had become WLG member earlier in the year and now the association is forging co-operational travel concepts including a first taste of the restructured Ryder Cup grounds.
All participants meeting at eye-level, the event’s atmosphere was characterised by supportive, yet openly questioning debates and humorous exchanges and everyone agreed to repeat such a day on a larger scale in due time.
