  6. 6. Two sides to International GolfWeek The success of IGW among public AND sponsors is based upon the „two sides“ to the program. His unique concept optimally combines „sponsors (partners) only“ with components open to general public. Some events are all access. The proportion may vary in accordance to the sponsors’ needs. • „Corporate side“ – is designed to provide truly exclusive and unforgetable golf experience to the sponsors and their VIP guests. This part of the program can be invisible to the public and media (should the need be). • „Public side“ – general public has a chance to enjoy, watch and or participate in lessons, seminars, lectures, mini tournaments and other events of the „public hemisphere“ of the program. The „entry“ can be made in many awareness raising ways: product promotions, radio or TV contests, simple purchase of tickets etc. Private Lesson by Ernie Els Fanny Sunesson caddying for on of the Partners during Best Hole Of My Life Alex Cejka, Simon Holmes, Jessica Korda and Klara Spilkova during the How Low Can YOU Go? charity match
