“Sponsorship from Hythe Group has enabled us to support both Service men and women to compete at the top level of military representational sport. This includes a variety of competitions and fixtures across the country, even supporting the Royal Navy ladies squad competing overseas in South Africa. It has provided support to the Royal Navy Golf Championships and Navy Cup Finals, which service personnel from home and abroad can compete in (through provision of professional coaching). It has helped the development of golf from the absolute beginner through to Service representation and has also enabled us to refresh the team kit worn by all our teams and players."
