Stockport Golf Club partners with LSH Auto UK & Mercedes-Benz of Stockport
Over the last few weeks the General Manager and Head Professional have been busy detailing the plans and specific benefits of the new relationship with Mercedes Benz of Stockport – part of LSH Auto UK. As highlighted in the announcement about this partnership, LSH Auto are in the process of building their brand new state of the art facility in Stockport and as such it has been somewhat challenging to be able to get in front of the right people given their current task list!
We wanted to highlight specifically some of the benefits the Club will see:
This will initially come in three forms:
Scorecard – the new scorecard will have an “advert” promoting the dealership. In return the dealership will pay for the production of the cards, a direct saving for the Club
Golf Day – LSH Auto (which has Mercedes-Benz dealerships in 2 main market areas, Manchester and Birmingham) will hold their annual Golf Day with the Club
Golf – an arrangement is in place to enable the dealerships to send golfers to the Club
Initially Mercedes-Benz Of Stockport wish to upgrade our tee furniture, to include a subtle LSH/Mercedes logo – the dealership will pay for this upgrade.
We also plan to improve the driveway with some welcome signs, again subtly supporting the dealership, but again paid for by the dealership.
In the future, providing the relationship continues to prove positive for both sides, we hope to be able to improve other areas, the Driving Range being one of those areas we have under current consideration.
Direct Member Benefits
- Open Day invite
- Direct line to an LSH Auto salesperson who will deal with any enquiries from an SGC Member
- Advance notification of any new release cars
- Member Bag Tag
- Occasional preferential opportunities if looking for a new/used Mercedes-Benz
Mutually beneficial marketing opportunities are at the core of the arrangement; significantly we will have presence in the new Stockport dealership and within their new Trackman Swing Studio. Gary and his team will also be onsite at the dealership from time to time particularly around product launches, giving great exposure for the Club and marketing to a desirable demographic.
Further, we will mutually assist each other through our websites and social media platforms.
