World’s Leading Golf Networking Group Now On Wearside


Author: George Washington Hotel Ltd

THE George Washington Hotel is getting into the swing of business networking on the golf course An innovative networking group that connects businesses with each other over a round of golf now has regular monthly meetings at the hotel.

FORE Business - the world’s largest golf-networking organisation - with more than 100 groups around the UK, as well as in America, Spain and Ireland, is now available to business from across Wearside and the wider North East.

The group meets on the third Wednesday of every month bringing business owners together who have a shared love of the global game.

Andrew Biggs, FORE Business ambassador at the George Washington, said: “This is something that Tyneside and Teesside have had for some time and I’m thrilled to be involved in bringing it to the Sunderland area.

”Being part of FORE Business in Washington means members can also enjoy the courses on Tyneside and Teesside as well as our other centres across the country and abroad - it's a really good networking group and the only  one where you can be out on the golf course but still insisting you're doing work!"

The group, which has generated more than £40m worth of business in the last six years. works on the simple premise that many business owners love a round of golf, so what better way to network than to combine business with pleasure?

FORE Business co-founder Arron Busst said: “We launched the company six years ago when we realised as keen golfers and networkers ourselves that there could be a way to combine the two.

“Business owners get to enjoy a round of golf with fellow business owners and as they get to know each other over a round of golf they can build up the trust and understanding needed to see fresh business opportunities.

“It has been a winning formula for us, helping owners generate millions of pounds in business and we are delighted to bring it to Sunderland now.”

Bill Michie, golf manager at the George Washington said: “It’s great that the George Washington has been selected as the golf course and the venue of choice for this region.

“It’s a real feather in our cap and we’re looking forward to supporting and helping business across the North East over the coming months and years.”

The next FORE Business day at the George is being held on Wednesday, August 21st.
