As a leading IT support provider in the Nottingham, Derby and Leicester areas, Air-IT is always looking for ways to support other local businesses, organisations and initiatives – especially those with a sporting connection. So when the opportunity arose to sponsor a hole at one of the region’s leading golf courses, we leapt at the chance.
Air-IT is now proud sponsor of the 15th tee on the 18 hole Open golf course at the Nottinghamshire Golf & Country Club in Stragglethorpe, near Nottingham. Established in 1991, the Club boasts two magnificent 18 hole Champion-standard golf courses set in 340 acres of rolling countryside.
The sponsorship deal includes adding an Air-IT branded plaque to the 15th hole, which will be seen around 50,000 times a year by members and visitors. We’re also hoping for some TV exposure on SKY Sports from the William Hunt Trilby Tour Regional Final, which was televised at the Nottinghamshire Golf & Country Club on Tuesday 16 July.
The Club is also offering 48 free rounds of golf as part of our sponsorship deal, so we’re looking forward to a few games as well as offering free rounds to interested clients. Our Technical Director, James Healey, is already a keen player whilst Managing Director Todd McQuilkin and Sales Director Simon Leadley have just taken up the sport, so there are sure to be some enjoyable days on the course in the near future.
Comments Todd: ‘The Nottinghamshire Golf & Country Club is a long-term client of Air-IT’s sister communications division, MBC. As a business that’s dedicated to providing top quality service, the Club has much in common with both MBC and Air-IT, so we were delighted when the opportunity arose to sponsor a hole on the prestigious Open golf course.’
As part of their ongoing work with the Club, MBC installed a new Ericsson-LG business phone system in 2011, to help them better manage the many incoming calls they receive. You can find out what Marketing Manager Charlotte Moore thinks about MBC, and how the new system has benefited their business, by watching MBC’s client testimonials video.
MBC Entertains on the Links
Two MBC clients have already taken advantage of our free golfing offer at the Nottinghamshire. Frank Ciaurro from CEMA and Bob Holland from Warboys were welcomed to the course by Sales Director, Simon Leadley, for a leisurely game during August.

Both Frank and Bob are golfing enthusiasts so were keen to try their skills on the Champion-standard Open course and everyone had a most enjoyable day. ‘It was great to spend a relaxing day on the golf course with two of our clients,’ says Simon. ‘We all played well but Frank ended up winning the game with some skilfully-played shots.’
Fancy a Game of Golf?
Air-IT and MBC are looking forward to welcoming more of our clients to the Nottinghamshire Golf & Country Club in the near future.
