Recognizing that video conferencing is commonplace in the business world, the Club has found a place for it in its facility as a way to gain a competitive edge amongst similar venues.

By installing video conferencing as a managed service in it’s oak-paneled Club Room, the Club is able to make the service available to both its membership base as well as casual and corporate visitors. This new and unexpected friendship between business and pleasure appears to be paying off. In a recent article, Terry Dwyer, managing director at mvision, says “The London Golf Club is busier on a Thursday than a Saturday.”

The London Golf Club recognizes that video conferencing offers users more efficient communication, reduces business travel and improves work/life balance.

Its a great way to drive traffic to the venue and showcase everything the club has to offer when business is done. This partnership is the perfect example of how to mix business with pleasure in a successful way.
