Style becomes a sponsor of the Essex Golf Union Under 18s team


Style has become a sponsor of the Essex Golf Union U18s Team squad clothing as part of a commitment to support young people.

The Essex Golf Union was founded in 1924 by sixteen Golf Clubs and the number of affiliated Clubs now stands at 71.

It administers county-wide golf competitions for individuals and Club teams in a wide range of age groups and standards, and through its player development programs its aim is to progress the next generation of golfers to represent the County of Essex and up to national level.

Michael Porter, Style’s group sales director, said, “We are delighted to have become a key sponsor for the U18 elite squad, and it’s exciting to be supporting some of the county’s finest young golfers.

“As the UK’s market leader in moveable, folding and partitioning walls, we have always helped develop talented young people through our apprenticeship schemes, and we believe it is also important to support young people in other areas too.

“The Union has been doing some fantastic work growing the game of golf by encouraging more young people to take up the sport, and this was a key reason for Style wishing to become involved as they are doing such great work in this area.

 “We very much look forward to a long relationship and are excited to be involved.”

James Gurry, the County Secretary and a P.G.A. Professional, added:

“The support we receive from businesses like Style is vital to the long-term development of our County teams, and helps encourage more young people to take up golf. As a result, we are seeing numbers grow and have many success stories of where our young players have gone on to compete both nationally and across the world.”

“We are very grateful for Style’s support and look forward to a great partnership.”
