It pays to be a member

If your combined annual purchases are more than £48k you will receive an additional Retrospective Bonus in addition to those available from individual suppliers. Last year the combined bonus paid to Foremost members was more than £300,000.

Every Foremost Member can become a shareholder and help steer the company (all shareholders have a single vote) and enjoy a healthy return which has averaged over 12% since the scheme started in 2004.


Best Buying Terms with the leading suppliers in the industry

Foremost’s strong working relationships with the leading suppliers and service providers in the industry means that members have access to best buying terms, exclusive campaigns and promotions to help them become more profitable.

However, being a member of Foremost is not only about best buying terms.

Members can opt to benefit from Foremost’s UNIQUE Central Payment Service 

Nothing is more important in a professional business than time and money. The Foremost Central Payment service frees up vital time and allows members to have a greater control of their finances.

Foremost Central Payment takes the hassle out of business transactions thanks to a centralised, consolidated invoicing system. Bookkeeping is reduced to 24 invoices a year with only six VAT invoices per quarter, freeing up more time to spend on other important roles performed by the Golf Professional.

A dedicated Account Manager in Foremost’s Central Administration Team ensures you receive the very best service and support.
