British Open 2012 co-sponsor Mercedes Benz, chose the stunning location of Formby Hall Golf Resort and Spa as their base during the 2012 British Golf Open Championship. Located only 45 minutes from the Royal Lytham & St Anne's course, the Mercedes Benz Team and their guests, which included celebrities from the world of sport, relaxed at the Formby Hall Hotel with many members of the team flying in from as far as China to attend the Championship.
Reflecting on what was a busy week for the Resort, Marc Smith, General Manager of Formby Hall Golf Resort and Spa said, "Having a prestigious and high profile sponsor meant that there was a considerable buzz around the resort for the week that they stayed with us. Our Corporate Team made every effort to ensure that the needs of the sponsor team and their guests were met and that everyone had a comfortable and relaxing stay whilst they were here. I have received a considerable number of compliments on the way that my team were able to accommodate such a large gathering and I am very proud of the satisfaction levels that the Resort staff achieved."
