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.

Sportingclass Industry Invitational Testimonials
Hi Paul and Andy
A big thank you for the golf, as usual, really well organised and credit to you both and your crew….You have a great outfit.
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
Great day ! Thanks for organising. We’ve had incredible thanks and positive comments regarding the Home House golf day from our members!
A hundred thank yous to you and the team for an AWESOME day yesterday! I have already received so much glowing feedback this morning, the customers just loved the day and really I can take little credit as you guys work so incredibly hard to make the day flawless. People had kept telling me what a great event it was and how well it is run and I must say it exceeded all my expectations- not an easy thing to do!
I wanted to thank you for making the day absolutely ace. We had an incredible amount of positive feedback both from hosts and from clients. Thank you again for making this come together in such an amazing way.
It was absolutely brilliant, thoroughly enjoyable with great company and exceptional organisation. A huge thank you to Sportingclass and I look forward to enjoying a long lasting and mutually beneficial relationship between Sportingclass and Home House.
