Sportingclass Industry Invitational Testimonials
Just wanted to drop you a note to say a massive thank you to your team and the Grove team for a fantastic event on Thursday at our first ever Proximo Masters Event. Despite the weather the event went with out a hitch and I have had such positive feedback from all that attended. The organisation and attention to detail that you delivered was first class and we were thrilled to be a part of. Please pass on my thanks to all and catch-up soon.
Andy, Thanks for a great day. The quality of the event was evident, and I got a real sense of being with friends. A rare achievement for any corporate gathering. I look forward to meeting soon and thanks again
Sam, Just want to say thanks for the outstanding trip. The organisation, hotel, and standard of golf facilities was all top notch. Most importantly it was great to connect with so many new faces. Thanks again to the Sportingclass team and hope to see you next year!
I just wanted to thank you all again for hosting a memorable trip. We are already talking about which events to enter next year and are spreading the word.
Thank you for the wonderful experience over the last week. From the meticulous planning and delivery from Sportingclass’ side to the fantastic list of attendees, but most of all the golf. To play the final round at Spanish Bay was likely a once in a lifetime experience, what a phenomenal golf course and set up. It’s a true privilege to join the trip and to move 92 people around with such ease is made all the easier by the way you guys run it in such a fabulous way. Many many memories and new friends made. I very much look forward to working with you all again very soon.
Andy , thank you again for looking after the both of us so well on Thursday. It’s fair to say, that I have both attended and operated many golf day and your event is the one that stands out amongst the very best. As we chatted about on the day, a key element is to pick a fabulous golf venue and management team.. I look forward to us delivering something even better in future years.
Andy, A massive thank you for such a great day out at the Grove yesterday. Sportingclass, led by you, delivered a hugely professional day out for everyone at the Property & Construction Golf Challenge. Your team were all very engaged, effortlessly charming and everything happened seamlessly, whatever inevitable frictions occurred in the background. On a personal note it was really great to meet you and thanks for looking after us so well.
Many thanks for all your hard work and organisation for our golf day yesterday. Again, the feedback has been fantastic, and it really has become a great day out and permanent part of the calendar. Everybody were pretty happy last night! Also, thank you for organising the gift at short notice. That is much appreciated…
Just a very brief note in thanks for what was unquestionably the best golf trip I have ever experienced in the UK. I’ve been fortunate enough to enjoy some of the finest courses in the UK but that topped the lot – the service at Loch Lomond was nothing short of exemplary & as ever was run like a German train schedule by your superb team.
A huge thank you & congratulations to the Sportingclass team for putting on an incredible few days in Kuala Lumpur which have created life long memories not only among our team but shared with so many of the other participants. The golf courses were the best we have every played, the Ritz Carlton was stunning. The organisation & comradery was as outstanding, I could not recommend participating enough to anyone. Thank you for the opportunity #ANDTHENEW #SEEYOUNEXTYEAR
