Corporate Hospitality – The British Open Golf

Posted by Jo Kelly

Golf is a favourite sport in the corporate world, often viewed as an opportunity to do a business deal while simultaneously enjoying a leisure activity.  For those who play it, it’s also a thrilling sport to watch at top level, played on beautiful green courses with the skill and control of international players on display.

The British Open or ‘The Open’ as it is traditionally referred to, is the oldest of the four major championships in professional golf.  Hosted at the Royal Birkdale course in Liverpool, which is famous for Tiger Woods winning without once using a driver, this is the only major to be played outside the US.

The 146th Open is on the 16th – 23rd July 2017 and will welcome the world’s greatest golfers.

As an employee reward as part of an incentive programme, tickets to The Open are a significant incentive, especially for fans of this elegant sport or for those with a love of international sporting events.  Particularly when the incentives package goes beyond the provision of simple tickets.

The package includes:

  • General admission to The Open
  • Reserved seat on The Great Briton Train, London-Southport return (via Watford Junction & Birmingham International)
  • Welcome glass of Bucks-Fizz on arrival
  • Delicious two-course brunch on outward journey
  • Three-course dinner served on return journey
  • Fine wines served with dinner (half bottle per person)
  • Luxury coach transfers – Southport to Royal Birkdale (2 miles)
  • Individual guest documentation
  • VIP hostess assistance

Your staff could enjoy a VIP experience on our British Open luxury train package, encompassing premium travel and hospitality before, during and after the event.  With tickets to enjoy the crucial Friday of the tournament, the last chance to see all players competing and trying to make the cut, this is the ultimate reward for golf devotees.  Hassle-free transport in a luxurious classic train carriage will kick off the experience in style, as a welcome glass of Bucks Fizz is presented on arrival.  Coupled with a two-course brunch en-route to the tournament, recipients will arrive well-fed and ready for a relaxing day of top sports entertainment.

Golf fans will delight in the opportunity to see big name players demonstrating why they are at the top of their game, with competitors like reigning champion Henrik Stenson, Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, the list goes on, all hoping to become the champion golfer of the year.  At the end of the day, the return leg of the deluxe train journey will include a three-course dinner, accompanied by fine wine, to wrap up a perfect day.
