Foremost members benefit from expanded Titleist & FootJoy brand experience events

Foremost Golf has once again partnered with Acushnet brands, Titleist and FootJoy to offer member professionals a unique brand experience.

Expanding to three events for 2023, the regional events were hosted at Frilford Heath Golf Club, Ganton Golf Club, and Gleneagles Resort. They provided the opportunity to receive in-depth brand education direct from Titleist and FootJoy product specialists and to get a close look at the latest product from each brand.

Foremost member Acushnet Partners were invited to each bring a guest or key influencer from their club. On arrival, they each received a Titleist and FootJoy goody bag and the days were split into a morning session which consisted of trial and education sessions, and afternoon golf, with prize presentations to follow.

The informative sessions consisted of a Titleist club and ball, and FootJoy shoe fittings, each hosted in small groups by a Titleist or FootJoy product specialist. The sessions focused on the importance of fitting and role the pro plays supporting their customers across all of these categories.

After the morning sessions of learning and development, the group put their game to the test out on the golf course with prizes for the best team score, longest drive and nearest the pin presented at the dinner, which capped a productive and informative day.

After attending the session at Gleneagles, Peter Mitchell, Head PGA Professional at Turnhouse Golf Club, commented: “The guest I brought is a dye in the wool Titleist player, who was hugely impressed throughout the education stations in the morning. The guys in the morning were first class, as they always are, and the day was topped off with some very enjoyable golf. To make the prizes was just icing on the cake.”

Martyn Hamer, PGA Club Professional at Davyhulme Park Golf Club, made the trip to Ganton Golf Club for the Yorkshire-based event. “Thank you for a thoroughly enjoyable day out at Ganton. As a retailer, I picked up lots of tips from the staff from a fitting and education perspective which my members will benefit from,” he commented.

Saltford Golf Club Head PGA Professional, Chris Coles attended the session at Frilford Heath and after the event, said: “I had an amazing day at Frilford Heath for a brilliant fitting and brand experience day. My guest and I had a fantastic day which was super informative. Massive thanks to Foremost, Titleist and FootJoy for the opportunity.”

Spencer Manning, Head of Sales, Titleist, added: “This was our second year of partnering with Foremost and we were delighted to be able to extend the concept to more of our partners. Our fitting teams provided an amazing personal experience with the aim of helping golfers better understand how ball, shoe and club fitting could help optimise their game.”

Foremost Golf Head of Supplier Partnerships, Chris Glenday commented: “We have had an overwhelmingly positive response from both our member professionals and their guests who have been fortunate enough to attend this years’ events. Expanding to run the events across three illustrious venues in 2023 has allowed for more of our members to enjoy and benefit from this experience.

“I would like to thank the knowledgeable teams at both FootJoy and Titleist for the experience they delivered at each of the venues and for the efforts that went into making these events a success.”
