Play golf with Gary Player
July 16, 2012
Golf legend Gary Player was one of the first golf professionals approached by travel specialists Le Bureau about joining their Le Bureau Golf Pro Collection. He kindly agreed to take part in a programme of luxury corporate and private golf days run by the company and become the leading figure of the collection of golf professionals they work with.
Player joins the likes of former Ryder Cup captain and US Masters Champion Ian Woosnam, Ryder Cup star Francesco Molinari, four-time major winner Laura Davies and three-time Evian Masters winner Helen Alfredsson on Le Bureau's roster for outstanding golf days and events.
The Geneva-based company specialises in delivering money-can´t-buy golf experiences and works with more than 30 leading golf professionals who participate in tailor-made corporate days, pro-ams and private events at some of Europe's leading golf resorts.
Gary Player said: "I know Le Bureau very well and have always been impressed by the way they work. The quality of the programmes they deliver is extremely high and they go to great lengths to make sure clients really enjoy the experience. It is a pleasure to work with them and I look forward to meeting many more of their clients."
Welcoming the news, Dominique Rey, Managing Partner of Le Bureau, said: "It is a real honour for us to be associated with someone like Gary Player. He is a truly inspirational figure who has an incredible knowledge of golf. Our clients will relish the opportunity to play with him and learn from one of the game's masters. We aim to provide unique events for our clients and playing golf with Gary Player is undoubtedly a once in a lifetime experience."
In a remarkable career spanning nearly 60 years of competitive golf Player amassed 165 career victories including nine major championships and a further nine senior majors. He is one of only five men to ever win a career Grand Slam and is the only player in history to win a career Grand Slam on both the regular and senior tours.
Off the course, Player's resume includes more than 50 years in golf course design with a portfolio of more than 325 golf courses worldwide. His philanthropic work has seen him raise more than $50 million for education programmes for underprivileged children around the world through The Player Foundation.
Player also currently serves as the Global Ambassador to the World Golf Hall of Fame and is renowned as the world's most travelled athlete.
