£100 Christmas early birdie saving
Accountants across the UK can cash in on a £100 saving when booking a team in the first ever national golf event for the profession.
Organisers of the FORE Accountants Golf Tournament 2018 are offering the discount to any practice taking advantage of its ‘Early Birdie' promotion and entering a team into the event before December 25.
Launched last month, the event has already attracted strong interest from some of the UK's top 50 firms, as well as entries from smaller practices and – starting next June – the tournament will feature teams of accountants and key clientele competing for the chance to be crowned as national champions, and win a luxury golf holiday to Mauritius.
The FORE Accountants Golf Tournament is being backed by Accountancy Age and will feature four regional qualifying events next summer at some of the country's leading golfing venues. The top four teams from each will then progress to the grand final at the prestigious Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel & Country Club, in September 2018 – with a five-star seven-night golf break to Mauritius up for grabs to the overall winners.
The ‘Early Birdie' offer gives a reduced price of £799 VAT per team for pre-Christmas bookings and an online entry form and more information are available by visiting www.foreaccountants.co.uk.
