Belfast’s Belvoir Park Golf Club has been awarded one of the most prestigious service accolades in the golf industry; the “59 Club Gold Award” for achieving the highest standards of excellence in service and facilities.
General Manager Brendan McDermott said: “It’s hugely satisfying to receive an award that recognises our commitment to members & visitors. Belvoir has joined an exclusive group of clubs in the British Isles, including Gleneagles, The Belfry & Celtic Manor. We are the sole Gold Flag club in Ulster, & from over 400 golf clubs on the island of Ireland, only the championship clubs of Mount Juliet and Portmarnock also received Gold Awards.”
Lady Mary Peters commented; “As an Honorary Member of Belvoir, I’m delighted to present this Gold Flag Award. It is a significant accolade because it recognises world-class customer service and experience. Belvoir enjoys a marvelous clubhouse, bar and dining area, with stunning views over the course, the panorama of the city and Antrim Hills. I congratulate the Club’s winning team of 42 staff.
Captain Terry Sonner observed: “The “Gold Flag” underpins our position as one of the foremost parkland courses in Ireland. It’s been our strategic plan to focus on service issues and procedures to ensure we’re constantly aiming for excellence. This was a team effort in every department, and a tribute to all our staff .”
Lady Captain Julie Morrison said: “We’re honoured to have “Belfast’s Golden Girl” present our award. She’s the epitome of sporting achievement. The Gold Flag will encourage even more visitors from across Ireland and abroad to explore the many improvements we’ve introduced to the course and clubhouse. They’ll certainly enjoy the “Belvoir Experience!”
