Official Letting Agents of The Open Championship 2011 – Royal St. George’s, Sandwich

Colebrook & Sturrock has been appointed by the R & A as the sole official letting Agent for the Open Championship at Royal St. George’s Golf Club in July 2011.

Colebrook & Sturrock is an independent Estate Agent and Letting Agent with 6 offices across East Kent. Established in 1991, the partnership has since won a variety of awards including Best Small Company in Kent and national awards for the quality of our service and innovation in marketing. We are a progressive modern company with superb standards of client care and professionalism. We are members of the National Association of Estate Agents.

The Head Office is in Market Street, in the heart of Sandwich where our Lettings team is based. Simon Greaves is the Senior Partner, assisted by Toby Caufield and two Associate Partners, all of whom have long experience in residential property. Simon has lived in the town all his life and has extensive connections with members at Royal St. George’s, as well as with members at other neighbouring clubs.

Colebrook Sturrock is involved in the sale of the widest range of homes from studio flats to large country homes, new developments as well as the letting of all manner of residential property. We also maintain a high profile with regular local and regional advertising in a range of newspapers, and magazines such as Kent Life, and, of course, a strong internet presence.

In 2003, Colebrook Sturrock’s associate Holiday Letting company, Curlew Cottages run by Sarah Rainbird, was based within our building and it offered a high profile letting service alternative to the Official Agents at that time. A large number of properties were let to corporate clients such as IMG and the BBC, as well as to players, caddies, their supporters and golf enthusiasts. An impressive tally of the top finishers, including the winner Ben Curtis, Thomas Bjorn, Tiger Woods and many others who secured accommodation through our associate company.

Curlew Cottages now operates independently from a separate base within the town, and we intend to build from our experience in 2003 in our new role as the R & A’s Official Letting Agent, securing the vast majority of properties for the event. Our aim is to offer an unrivalled level of service and we are delighted to have recruited Wendy Knight as our Open Lettings Coordinator who worked with Sarah in 2003. She brings enviable experience, both through her golfing contacts and her work with Curlew Cottages in holiday lettings.
