CHORLEY Golf Club has secured one of its most significant sponsorship deals from a leading commercial vehicle company in the town.
James Hart Chorley Ltd, which specialises in DAF and Leyland truck sales, parts, repairs and servicing, has agreed a clothing and hole sponsorship package with the Heath Charnock club. The deal will see the Clover Road-based firm supplying branded clothing to Chorley professional Mark Bradley, assistant professional Andy Palmer and staff in the club shop.
The agreement will also see the company’s logo and contact details prominently displayed on the second hole of the 6,269-yard moorland course, which was founded in 1897.
James Hart, managing director of the company which also offers car and van MOTs, servicing and repairs, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Chorley Golf Club which is one of the jewels in the crown of the local sports and social scene.
“Like the club, our company is very well established, having served customers in the town and beyond for more than 90 years. I think we make a very good team.”
Chorley Golf Club captain, John Gorton, said: “As well as providing excellent golfing facilities for the town, our aim is to be a friendly, welcoming club with a thriving social calendar and a proud record of supporting local good causes.
“We can only do this with the active involvement of members and sponsors so we’re extremely grateful to James Hart Chorley Ltd for their generous support.
“They’re a very well-known business name in the town and we are absolutely delighted to now be associated with them.”
