QHotels' Forest Pines Hotel and Golf Resort proudly hosted the
prestigious Boys Home International Championship on 6th - 8th

a free golf master class to conference delegates on its 27-hole
championship golf course.
The hotel and golf resort, one of QHotels 21 unique and luxurious
hotels, is offering a free hour golf master class with the hotel's
championship golf professional, Dan Greenwood. The master class is
designed to get delegates - regardless of their golfing ability -
playing golf, not only as a leisure activity, but also to develop
their focus and motivation in the boardroom.

golfer often mirror those of a business person.
Group Golf Manager at QHotels, Andrew Cook said: "A good golfer
remains calm under pressure, thinks strategically and believes in
themselves - these are all virtues in business too. Our free golf
master class will help delegates realise their potential both on
and off the golf course.
"The Forest Pines golf course has hosted some of the country's top
tournaments, including the PGA 4-ball championships and the Euro
Pro Qualifier, but this was the most prestigious event we've ever
hosted. We're really looking forward to hosting the delegate master
classes, who knows? We might either meet the next Rory McIlroy or
