Executives on course for business network

EXECUTIVES with a passion for golf can do business on the course by joining a new networking club.

The North East Golf Network is aimed at business owners and senior executives in the North East and has been set up by Mark Stancer and Ian Pilkington.

Mr Stancer, who was the director of golf when De Vere Slaley Hall hosted European Tour events, said: “Membership works on a corporate level, with between one and four named golfers per organisation, and members can view other members’ profiles on our website.

“There will be members who will want to play golf with other members and, in some cases, the network will be playing matchmaker in sending people out to play golf who have common business interests.”

Mr Stancer, who is now the PGA professional at N1 Golf in Morpeth, says the network offers members the chance to bring guests and each golf day will include a golf clinic given by himself along with dinner and prizes.

Mr Pilkington, managing director of i2i Consultants, said: “Business owners work incredibly hard and find it difficult to find time to network and play golf so we created a format to do both and it’s proved very successful elsewhere

“The common ground for everyone attending our network is golf, everyone has an opinion and it provides a great ice-breaker for the members.

“Our inaugural event is intended to give people a feel for how the network will work without any obligation.”

The launch day takes place at Close House, near Heddon-on-the-Wall in Northumberland on Thursday, April 22, with days planned for Seaton Carew, Matfen Hall, Bishop Auckland, Slaley Hall and Goswick.

For more information, email enquiries@northeastgolfnetwork.co.uk or phone Mr Stancer on 07745 861888.

The website, www.northeastgolfnetwork.co.uk, will provide members with access to other members’ profiles and event details.
