The Sportingclass Industry Invitational 2022

Qualifying events around the UK culminating in a Final played in Thailand.

This is the ultimate Golf Networking event.

Our Golf Days are Like No Other…

There are now many ‘replica’ golf networking days to choose from, but The Sportingclass Industry Invitational ensures every golf day is delivered to an exceptional standard with huge attention to detail to guarantee you and your guest(s) are treated to the most indulgent, fun & productive of networking golf days. If your team comes first & wins a spot to the final in Thailand – that’s just a fantastic bonus as every qualifying event is designed as a stand-alone event with prizes on the day, great gifts, exceptional hospitality on and off the course and a fantastic guest list for you to circulate with.

Here are just a few comments from our clients:

“It was just the kind of intimate and luxurious golf day we wanted. Perfect in every way. Thank you. “

“I just wanted to thank you all for putting on such a great day, the whole series of golf days have been such good fun and you guys have been unbelievable hosts. The golf courses have been nothing short of spectacular, hats off”

I have had two lovely emails back from our clients, they had a simply fantastic day and one of them said it was the best day of golf he had ever had, hands down! So thank you so much for all of your organisation – just brilliant!”

Our past Tournament Finals have been to:
Arizona, Georgia, Jamaica, Kuala Lumpur x 2, Naples, New Orleans, San Francisco, Sanya, Sarasota & Mauritius.

The Sportingclass Industry Invitational, we have been told, is the best golf networking tournament available.

If you have not had the pleasure of enjoying one of our events, now is your chance!

Qualifying rounds are often trade specific to maximise interaction between leading industry players; but if you prefer to network across industry sectors we have plenty of non-trade specific events. Please feel free to email Paul if you would like to chat through your options.

All qualifying rounds are of the highest quality and are perfect standalone events for meeting and entertaining clients in a relaxed, but fun, environment carefully designed to allow for business networking.

Each event includes breakfast or brunch, 18 holes of golf followed by post golf drinks and dinner or BBQ with prize-giving.

All golfers receive a premium goody bag, and will enjoy prizes on the day as well as the opportunity to win the first place prize of a trip to the tournament final hosted in Thailand

The Final of the Sportingclass Industry Invitational 2022 will be hosted at the stunning Nikanti Golf Club & Thai Country Club, Thailand

The truly magnificent Nikanti golf course was designed to takes full advantage of the beautiful landscape & naturally rolling terrain. The Course has been uniquely created in a  6-6-6 concept which is inspired by the six senses in Buddhism and is part of Nikanti’s brand philosophy .

Measuring 6,789 yards from the back tees, each group of six holes is distinctive in look, design, and play.  Nikanti’s three six-hole golf course layouts offer enhanced play flexibility and convenience.  Meticulously manicured fairways and fast undulating greens are but a few of Nikanti’s renowned hallmarks, and the various landscape features will challenge even the most experienced golfer.

Finalists will be flown to Thailand and will stay in the luxurious W Hotel, Bangkok

The W Hotel commands stunning views over the city of Bangkok – where as you can imagine, there is a huge amount to see and do whilst you are not on the golf course!
