Sponsorship at HGC

Why Choose Hillsborough Golf Club?

In 2015 visiting participation at HGC was up 70% on the previous year.

This is forecast to grow a further 85% through 2016. We anticipate over 3,400 individuals and societies will experience the course and its facilities this year

397 Membership. Showing growth of 5% in a decreasing market

Over 800 golfers from all over the country will be participating in the “Golf Festival Week”

Circa 44,500 rounds of golf to be played through 2016

Focused opportunity for a target market. The below graph illustrates 50% of our members fall in to the age bracket 40 to 55 years of age.

With our membership fees being some of the highest in the area, this would indicate that our membership is largely represented by C1 and C2 classifications.

C1 - lower middle class supervisory or clerical, junior managerial, administrative or professional

C2 - skilled working class, skilled manual workers

This provides a great foundation for exposure to your company and assists with HGC’s goal of becoming Sheffield’s premier golfing venue.
