Milestone was established in 2002. From the outset, our plan was to create a golf and corporate events business in which we could effectively work as the 'in-house' events team for our clients. This ethos has enabled us to build long lasting and trusting relationships and gives us a unique insight into our clients' brands and their values.
Our proven track record, unrivalled experience and market knowledge ensure you have the opportunity to build better client relationships whilst we take away all the stress and deliver an event that is relaxing, fun, memorable and a commercial success.
Professional, honest, creative, flexible and dedicated - that's what makes us different and why existing clients rebook year after year.
