Country Club recognized as golf, wedding professionals

BEDFORD – Manchester Country Club was recognized at the 2016 PGA Merchandise Show this week in Orlando, Fla., as a first-time recipient of the Association of Golf Merchandisers’ Platinum Award for Golf Shop Operations. The local country club was simultaneously named winner of the 2016 WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Award.

The only golf club receiving the AGM Platinum Award honor in northern New England, Manchester Country Club joins the company of premiere golf clubs Pinehurst Resort, Pinehurst, N.C.; Grayhawk Golf Club, Scottsdale, Ariz.; Congressional Country Club, Bethesda, Md.; and Medinah Country Club, Medinah, Ill. AGM Platinum Award entries are judged by an impartial panel on a number of categories, including creative ideas, adaptability, revenue-generating initiatives, promotions and visual displays. MCC was recognized for its 3,250-square-foot space affectionately called, "The Attic," a unique indoor golf performance and entertainment space situated above the golf shop.

The 2016 WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards recognize the top five percent of wedding professionals in the WeddingWire Network who demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism. Winners are determined solely based on reviews from real newlyweds and their experiences working with Manchester Country Club.

"As a first-time recipient of the coveted AGM award we’re ecstatic about this recognition from the golf industry," said Brian Kelley, General Manager of MCC. "We have received the nod from Wedding Wire for a few years running now. Both awards are a true testament to the hard work of our entire staff, all of whom were integral to the amazing year we had in 2015."
