The Golf Show Group, organisers of The London Golf Show, have partnered with the On Course Foundation for its exhibition 13–15 November at Glow, Bluewater. The partnership will see the On Course Foundation raising money from the busy features at the London Golf Show.
Surrey-based On Course Foundation’s golf skills and employment events allow attendees to explore how golf can help them on the road to recovery, and how the industry can provide employment. Members receive not only comprehensive golf tuition from the foundation’s training professionals, but career advice and guidance from industry figures in golf course management, greenkeeping and marketing, among others.
Its main aim is to offer work experience placements in the golf industry to its members, leading to employment that suits their skills and knowledge, and helping them pursue a meaningful career.
Patrons of the charity include keen golfer Prince Andrew, who saw active service during the Falklands conflict, and, in the USA, seven-time Major winner Arnold Palmer.
Steve Holt, Managing Director of the On Course Foundation said “With many of our beneficiaries lacking self-belief, it’s our aim to help them realise their potential within the golf industry, and set them on a fulfilling career path. The London Golf Show will be a great partner for us, a perfect fit to help us spread awareness of our cause. We’re absolutely delighted to be working with them, and look forward to a fruitful relationship.”
Simon Jones, Sales Director of the Golf Show Group commented on the partnership saying: “The official charity is a large part of the show and we have helped raise a lot of money for our partners. We are extremely excited to be working with such an active and well supported organisation at Bluewater this year. The team will all be behind their participation in the event and we look forward to raising their profile at the show and raising as much as possible for this valuable charity”.
