Attendee Feedback

‘Thank you for putting on such a fantastic golf day, I thoroughly enjoyed myself and it was great to meet so many people. Really looking forward to the next one.’

Alex Bush, Savills

‘Great event all round… Essentially, brilliantly organized tournament and the set-up of the course from the clubhouse, the trick-shots before and the meal after were superb. Loved the live leaderboard and the ease in which scoring was done…Great job, looking forward to next year already.’

Gareth Jackson, GL Hearn Limited 

‘Great event.  The automated scoring system was a revelation… Both Gareth Jackson and me had a great day, and would 100% be keen to get involved next year.’

Chris Brake, GL Hearn Limited

‘Exceedingly well organized and enjoyable day. The whole format I thought was difficult to improve upon. I loved the trick show and found it amusing, awe inspiring and thought provoking in terms of positive thoughts to take out to the course.

The course was fantastic and in great condition, the shotgun start worked perfectly and the scoring system was one I had not come across before and loved the interactive nature of it.

The lunch was very enjoyable and the food great.

I very much look forward to being given the chance to repeat it all next year and thanks again to you and your team for all the hard work.’

Adrian Harmer, HRH

‘I think the day was really well organized and included so much activity and great hospitality (gifts, trick shots, competitions throughout the round, refreshments throughout, an excellent meal, speeches, prizes!). I really couldn’t fault it.

I would love to come next year!’

Peter Rainier, DMH Stallard

‘Wonderful event. I would love to provisionally put my name down for the 2017 Property Open.

I thought the event was excellently organized. The trick shot show was entertaining and useful for some basic pointers.

The gift bags were a pleasant surprise and I thought the food was excellent. The course was challenging and the beer karts essential.

All in all though, an excellent, well organized event. Thank you very much.’

Christian Kortlang, IDM Properties LLP

‘On behalf of the two Barratt David Wilson teams (Rob Phillips, Nick Keeley and James Matcham) I would like to thank you for a brilliant day. We all thoroughly enjoyed the day from start to finish. The event was incredibly well run, from the guys bringing drinks around on the buggies, to the scoring system and having Gus Fraser and Geoff Swain there, topped the day off! 

We all look forward to attending next year.’
