Invest In Your Game

The day offers golfers the opportunity to play a competitive round on a Top 100 course, hone their technique with advice from a Golf Monthly Top 25 Coach and benefit from an introduction to St. James’s Place and its personal wealth-management services.

The inaugural event will be held at the prestigious Woburn Golf Club in Hertfordshire on Tuesday March 21, 2017. Home to three courses – the Duke’s, the Duchess’ and the Marquess’ – all ranked in Golf Monthly’s Top 100 courses, Woburn has staged many notable events, most recently the British Masters in 2015 and last year the Ricoh Women’s British Open and Final Qualifying for The Open Championship. The club boasts Ian Poulter and Charley Hull as its Touring Professionals.


The event is hosted by Placid P. Gonzales & Associates (a Founder & Senior Partner of St. James's Place Wealth Management) who will present an insightful and highly informative 45-minute briefing for attendees to gain clear direction on how they can secure and enhance their financial future in these uncertain times

St. James’s Place Wealth Management is a FTSE 100 company with over £75 billion of client funds under management. They are one of the UK’s leading wealth managers providing highly personalised face-to-face advice to individuals, trustees and businesses and take pride in building long-term client relationships.

The value of an investment with St. James's Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds selected and may fall as well as rise.  You may get back less than the amount invested.


Golfers will get to take part in an interactive 90-minute clinic with Golf Monthly Top 25 coach Gary Alliss, where they will benefit from tips, drills and advice to improve their game. Gary, son of the legendary Peter Alliss, has coached players of all abilities from beginners up to elite level and is one of only a handful of coaches to have attained the PGA’s ‘Master Professional’ status.


An 18-hole stableford competition will be held over the Marquess’ course, ranked number 71 in Golf Monthly’s Top 100 courses 2017/18
