Worsley Marriott Get Industry Standard Award

On Monday, February 26, 2018, the golf industry’s very best clubs, resorts and individuals gathered for the 59club’s 8th annual awards with Manchester’s Worsley Park Marriott Hotel and Country Club claiming two of the evenings sought after prizes which saw them retain the title of Golf Operations Team of the Year; and add Golf Retail Manager of the Year through Stephen Hindle.

The awards recognise leading golf venues that consistently achieve ‘service excellence’ across all areas of the business, from sales, service, operations, retail, golf course & condition, food & beverage and management. Every aspect of the clubs’ performance is scored by an independent visitor panel who evaluate the experience afforded to both visiting golfers and prospective members.

Darren Mercer, Director of Golf & Leisure at Worsley Park Marriott Hotel & Country Club added; "We are really proud of our team here at Worsley Park. Not only are they passionate about what they do but every member of the team believe in the level of excellence we deliver. There is no better compliment than an independently assessed award placing our team above many around the world for a second year in a row."

The Marriott Golf Group also left the evening revelling as they received a total of eight awards shared out between The Forest of Arden, St Pierre Breadsall Priory and of course Worsley Park.

Simon Wordsworth CEO at 59club commented, "The night was a credit to our client clubs who work tirelessly to advance industry standards. These clubs are fully committed to delivering the very best customer journey; a competitive advantage that will always see them reap the rewards for their labour.

Derek Harvey, General Manager of Worsley Park Marriott Hotel & Country Club summed up the win by saying; "We are a true believer that it is the people that make Worsley Park such a special place. We have a great team that have a genuine spirit-to-serve working tirelessly to make every member, guest and visitor feel special. It is fitting, therefore, that our team have been given this award in recognition of their dedication over the last 12 months."

Worsley Park’s facilities are regarded as some of the best in the region with 158 bedrooms including five suites, nine meeting and function rooms, three restaurants and bars, championship golf course and spa. The hotel and golf facilities are nestled amongst an idyllic leafy setting, just seconds away from direct transport links into Manchester and the surrounding area.
