Customer endorsement

"We have had the privilege to work with Interlock Events in providing VPAR on many of our golf events, including to name a few of our top tier events: the Ronan Keating Golf Day, BCX SuperSport Shootout and the Gary Player Invitational. In my many years of experience in the golf events industry, I have never worked with a more dedicated and professional team. Their knowledge of the game and interaction with our guests sets our events apart, golf is all about the experience and from registration to prize giving this team is above par!

I can also add that their party skills are second to none!"
