SkyCaddie's Christmas Gift Is Golf At De Vere

Two of golf’s best-known brands have combined to create the perfect Christmas present for golfers in the UK.

The offer – buy a SkyCaddie and receive a free fourball at a DeVere golf course – applies to the full SkyCaddie range, including SG2.5 and the new SGX.

The free voucher gives SkyCaddie buyers up to £320 worth of green fees at De Vere.

Inside their SkyCaddie box golfers will find a De Vere Golf fourball voucher, valid at ten of the leading hotel operator’s exclusive venues in the UK at any time before March 31st 2011.

The promotion covers fourteen of De Vere’s sixteen UK golf courses, including all courses at Slaley Hall, Heron’s Reach, Oulton Hall, Mottram Hall, Carden Park, Wychwood Park, Belton Woods, Dunston Hall, Staverton Park and Wokefield Park, with only Cameron House at Loch Lomond unavailable in the offer.

All De Vere golf courses have been surveyed on foot by SkyCaddie’s professional mapping team. SkyCaddie is the only rangefinder to use highly accurate survey-grade equipment to measure dozens of critical target points on every hole, giving golfers unbeatable information on over 2,600 golf courses in the UK. Less than 2% of the UK’s courses are as yet un-mapped by SkyCaddie.

During the promotion SkyCaddie buyers will also receive an invitation to join the new De Vere Club, which for just £295 gives golfers membership of all eleven De Vere golf clubs in the UK on a points-based system. With a round of golf starting at just 2 points, and with 100 De Vere points included in their Membership, De Vere Club members have plenty of choice and can also redeem their points by inviting friends to play with them. The De Vere Club was launched by the Club’s Captain Peter Alliss in spring 2010.

“We think this is the ideal Christmas present for a golfer this year” said SkyCaddie’s Jacqui Hitchcock. “De Vere is a wonderful brand which golfers love: their unrivalled collection of golf courses contains everything a golfer could want, and this promotion will see thousands of SkyCaddie customers and their friends visit De Vere venues before the end of March.”

De Vere’s Daniel Hodson said: “We like to align ourselves with forward-thinking brands, and SkyCaddie is the clear industry leader in their market. We think that this deal will be very popular with golfers, and we look forward to an extended relationship with SkyCaddie.”

About golf at De Vere

www.devere.co.uk/golf ... De Vere Hotels, Resorts and Venues offer glorious golf at 11 properties with 16 incredible courses to challenge your skills. From The Carrick on the bonny banks of Loch Lomond to the beautiful Cheshire countryside at Wychwood Park, there’s a fabulous choice of parkland, links and woodland courses for you to explore. The De Vere name became synonymous with the game after hosting the 1985 Ryder Cup - the year Tony Jacklin’s European team ended the USA’s 28 year winning streak. Since then, the De Vere group has continued to host events on many of its courses including the Ladies Scottish Open in 2008 on the Championship Carrick course at Cameron House. Slaley Hall also welcomed the PGA Seniors in both 2008 and 2009, while in September 2009 The Carrick hosted the PGA Cup. De Vere’s investment into the game has even extended to the creation of The Nike Golf Academy at Oulton Hall & Spa. The perfect choice for Corporate and Society golf, De Vere is committed to making your day or event a huge success.
