Calling all golfers – the annual GIMA Golf Day is confirmed to return to Belton Woods Hotel & Golf Course in Grantham on Thursday June 9th 2022.
Open to golfers of all abilities, this event is the perfect opportunity to bring together colleagues and customers for a day of team building and fundraising in aid of Greenfingers – this year’s beneficiary charity as chosen by GIMA president, Simon McArdle.
To add an extra element of competition to the day, golfers will be able to win a selection of prizes with the usual spot games and ‘Beat the Pro’, there may even be a special prize for any golfer who completes the golfing holy grail: a hole-in-one. Golfers can enter individually or as a team of four, together testing their mettle on the 6,623-yard course that carries a par 73 handicap. Last year’s winners – Zest 4 Leisure – took home the trophy with a score of 96 and are expected to return to defend their title.
Following time spent on the course, golfers will get to enjoy a barbeque on the hotel’s veranda, complemented by a raffle and auction. All monies raised will be donated to Greenfingers, enabling them to create even more therapeutic gardens in children’s hospices across the country.
As always, the GIMA Golf Day will also offer a number of key sponsorship opportunities for brands wanting to support the event. Golf sponsorship packages include ‘nearest the pin’, ‘longest drive’, ‘straightest drive’ and ‘hole-in-one’. Brands can also sponsor a hole, drinks stations, booby prizes and golf balls, as well as sponsoring of the raffle and auction for additional brand awareness opportunities.
GIMA Director, Vicky Nuttall said: “We’re so pleased to be returning to Belton Woods in June. Last year was the first time we took to its fairway, and it proved to be the perfect venue. Each year our Golf Day offers teams and individuals from across the sector the opportunity to come together for a bit of friendly competition and the chance to network with others. It’s always a great day and represents great value customer hospitality so we urge interested parties to register their interest now.”
