Exeter Business Success Award for the club

Nov 4, 2019 | Jenni Ashford

Exeter Golf and Country Club has scooped its second major award of 2019 – the Exeter Business Success Award at the Exeter Business Dinner on Friday 1st November.

The Exeter Business Success Award was presented to five companies who have excelled during the past year. The winners were Exeter Golf and Country Club, Stephens and Scown, Paul Siely, Krowdthink and Helpline.

Exeter Chamber’s Successes and Challenges campaign launched in May to gain greater insight into the business environment in and around the city. Businesses were invited to share their challenges and successes of 2018/19 with top successes to be celebrated and recognised with an official presentation at the Annual Exeter Business Dinner in November.

Exeter Golf and Country Club was presented with a ‘top success’ award to celebrate the achievements of the club, including winning the ‘Most Welcoming Club in England Award’ from England Golf earlier this year, and bucking the national trend, with a waiting list for men’s golf memberships. The award was collected by Lee Cooke, Fitness Manager at Exeter Golf and Country Club.

The England Golf award elevated Exeter Golf and Country Club to a national level for breaking down boundaries to golf, getting more women into golf, using inventive marketing campaigns and empowering staff with inspirational hospitality training experts.

Chris Jones, General Manager at Exeter Golf and Country Club said, “2019 has been a momentous year in the history of the club. We were honoured to win the England Golf award as it was recognition on a national scale. We know that success is achieved by ensuring all areas of the club work collectively, from our sports facilities to our restaurant, spa, conferencing and events. Investing in our team to work collaboratively, raises the standards for our members and guests.”

Men’s golf membership at Exeter Golf and Country Club now has an 18 month waiting list, unlike many golf clubs which are struggling to attract members. Swimming membership at the club was also full for the first time ever for three months earlier this year.

Chris continues, “We are delighted to be recognised as one of Exeter’s top success stories by the Exeter Chamber of Commerce. To be presented with the ‘Exeter Business Success’ award at the city’s most prestigious business event at Sandy Park, is a huge honour and I would like to thank the judges for celebrating the hard work and commitment of my team during this important year for us.”

Exeter Golf and Country Club is on the cusp of a five year development project. The multi-million pound investment plan will significantly improve and modernise the sports and fitness facilities, along with restaurant and event areas. The club currently has availability for swimming, women’s golf, rackets and fitness memberships.
