Golf tournament for accountants launches in 2018

Starting next June, the FORE Accountants Golf Tournament 2018 will be held specifically for the accountancy profession

A recent study by Careers in Audit (CiA) revealed that 57% of accountants said they felt stressed due to their work at least once a month. Many accountants would probably argue that figure sounds a little low.

What better way to decompress than participate in an industry specific golf tournament? Starting next June, the FORE Accountants Golf Tournament 2018 will be held specifically for the accountancy profession.

In the contemporary workplace, business and golf are synonymous. As golf.com puts it, golf “isn’t merely a leisure sport. It’s the martini lunch of the modern workforce, the buoyant venue where business gets done.”

The FORE Accountants Golf Tournament will feature accountants, their colleagues and key clientele competing to be crowned national champions.

Four regional qualifying Stableford competitions will be held across England in the south-west, central, north and London regions at The Manor House Hotel & Golf Club in Wiltshire; Moortown Golf Club in Leeds; Little Aston Golf Club near Birmingham; and The London Golf Club, in Kent.

Teams of four will compete in top golfing venues across the country over 18 holes, and the top four teams will move on to compete in a grand final at the Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel & Country Club in September 2018. The overall winners will receive a luxury seven-night golf holiday to Mauritius for four people, staying at two Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spas, including flights and golf.

The FORE Accountants Golf Tournament 2018 is being organised by the Azalea Group – European leaders in the golf, sports and marketing industry. The event is being put on as part of a new dedicated events division formed by the company earlier this year.

Matt Lacey, events manager at the Azalea Group and tournament director, said: “Golf is still considered by many as an important business tool, but how many of us actually get to play in a professional-style tournament?”

“Accountants have a passion for golf and the new tournament will give them the opportunity to not only play some fantastic courses and win some incredible prizes, but to have the chance to be crowned the Fore Accountants Golf Champions for 2018.”

Entering the competition will cost each team £899 + VAT. With only space for 30 teams, make sure your team doesn’t miss out.
