About GBT Events – The Leading Golf and Business Network
Working Together For Better Golf Events
We provide a membership of like-minded people, who love golf and business, that want to be part of a professional group.
We provide you with the opportunity to invite your customers, potential customers and key staff to a golfing event with excellent courses, great company, and a day that your guests will remember.
Between GBT & the North West Chamber of Commerce’s our aim is to assist the membership in making introductions, putting members together, building a golf and business community that will support the businesses within the membership to grow and have fun!
There are a number of reasons why Golf and Business Together is a very different Business Network.
The Golf & Business Together membership has been created to work in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce, Manchester, Liverpool and Chester & North Wales.
Why did we decide to combine golf and business?
Golf for business has, in the past, been described as a six-hour sales meeting. Although the game may not last 6 hours, when you take into account the hours spent on the golf course through fairways, greens, and bunkers, followed by a few drinks afterwards, the opportunity for conversations is endless. Couple that with a group of business owners, managers and other professionals, and you start to understand why golf is a perfect opportunity to make new connections.
Once we realised the potential that a game of golf could bring to your business relationships, creating the ability to establish strong relationships outside the confines of the office and in a more social atmosphere, we had to create GBT Events.
“GBT Events” is more than just a simple golf tour; it’s also a networking group for business owners and professionals. You get to participate in a sport you love while also meeting like-minded business professionals.
You don’t have to be Tiger Woods!
Remember, this isn’t The Open! Instead, it’s an opportunity to meet like-minded business professionals who also enjoy golf and business. Whether you’re planning to bring along potential clients, decision-makers, or partners, a GBT tour event is a relaxed, informal way to get to know them.
If you are interested in booking any of the 11 events this year, view our 2022 Tour Calendar.
“We’re obviously fairly bias about how wonderful all our events are, but please don’t take our word for it… our clients have lots of kind things to say about us too!”
First and foremost, every member has a love of golf!
Our promise: great events, great courses, like minded members, an event that you will want to attend and have a fantastic day.
At GBT we understand the importance of introductions and we will assist you in making the right connections.
“The GBT team organise some great events and play at great venues which is one of the reasons I joined. The guys are spot on with organising things and good fun as well, and I have met and played golf with some lovely people.
As a competitive person I particularly like the league they run with the Top 4 Winners getting to play abroad. This year I was very fortunate to qualify with some stiff competition at Marbella. I did not win the final but I certainly had a good time. If you want to mix golf and business this is a great place to do it. If you just want to play competitive or fun golf than that is fine too. Thanks to Tim, Mark and Simon for a great 2016 and looking forward to 2017 already!”
I joined GBT to expand my network of contacts via a sport which I am passionate about. It gives me the chance to meet like-minded people who not only share a passion for golf but like to work with people who they know. What better way to get to know someone than spending 4 hours with them on a golf course, it certainly beats a 30 minute chat over a cup of overpriced coffee. Very much looking forward to what 2017 offers for the business going forward with GBT.
“Great golf courses with great company, this is my kind of business networking!”
‘I have been playing with the GBT for two years now and I’m very much looking forward to the third! The events are (obviously) primarily about golf, but the importance of networking is never lost but this is done subtly and professionally. From a business point of view I have benefitted from my time on the ‘tour’ and have secured some great new clients and contacts without the normal pressured structure and environment of a normal networking event. The venues we play are a benefit as they choose some brilliant courses and the team are always open to suggestion on venues. All in all I would recommend you come a long and give it a go and enjoy some great golf, company and of course the chance to make some very good contacts.’
I enjoy and look forward to the GBT Events, great courses, well organised & friendly welcoming group of members and when the Chairman is present your always going to get an entertaining presentation!’
