Kingdom sponsors golf course for networking events

clip_image002Kingdom is looking forward to welcoming clients and prospects to the Vale Royal Abbey Golf Club near Northwich in Cheshire after having recently entered into an agreement with Whole in 1 Golf Ltd.

The national security, cleaning and environmental protection company is excited to be maximising their new office and networking strategy with this sponsorship package which will allow them to hold networking events of 16 four balls of complimentary golf. Kingdom will also be making use of the facilities to reward colleagues for outstanding performance.

As part of the sponsorship, Kingdom will also receive hole nine advertising, and corporate advertising that will include:

  • a five second full screen advert and constant banner on the iPad buggy cart system
  • in-house TV exposure (a 40 second advert every 25 minutes)
  • a banner on the Vale Royal Abbey website
  • 24 push notifications

Just half an hour away from Kingdom’s new National Support Centre in Newton Le Willows and described as “a unique and breathtaking experience”, Vale Royal Abbey is set in 150 acres of beautiful Cheshire countryside - a breathtaking backdrop to any occasion, and one that is sure to impress. The Abbey itself dates back to the 13th Century and was lovingly restored in 1998 under the guidance of English Heritage. It still retains all of its historic splendour and now provides a unique venue that truly exudes grandeur befitting any special occasion.

The Vale Royal Abbey Golf Course was officially opened in 1998 and has since matured to become one of the best courses in the North West. It was designed by renowned British architect Simon Gidman and is a splendid course with something to offer golfers of all abilities.

The Clubhouse is set within the Abbey itself and offers stunning views across the course, a warm welcome and excellent cuisine. The splendid interior is a welcome retreat for meeting, eating and drinking.

All greens are constructed to USGA specifications and excellent, natural free-drainage means it’s fully-playable all year-round irrespective of the weather. All tees remain in use throughout the year, eliminating the need for winter tees or mates, and competition tees are also permitted all year-round for general play. This is a superb advantage for those wishing to be challenged by the course at its longest.

The course is 6,463 yards in length from the white tees, 6,160 yards from the yellow tees and 5,581 yards from the red tees. Each hole is individually characteristic and provides a true golfing test, requiring imaginative shot-making with every club while remaining enjoyable for all standards of golfer.

There are superb practice facilities too, including a 200-yard area with distance markers to allow you to practice club distance control. Short-game skills can be improved on the practice chipping green while putting can be grooved on the superb practice putting green. All of the second-to-none practice facilities are managed and maintained to the same exacting standards as the golf course itself, so you can use them year-round, whatever the weather.

Commenting on the new sponsorship package, Kingdom’s CEO Terry Barton BA (Hons) said: “It is important within Kingdom that you get the life and work balance right, especially with the speed that Kingdom is growing. With our move on 11/7/2016 to fantastic new premises this new networking partnership gives us a chance to get some exercise and fresh air and have some fun with our current and future business partners and work colleagues”.
