Fast Track 100

While undergraduates at Durham University, Ross Marshall, 31, and Andrew Harding, 32, started an online advisory betting services website and later sold it. Both went on to work in investment banking and business consulting but spotted a niche in the golf holiday market and started Your Golf Travel in 2005. The company now books holidays to 3,500 golf courses in 22 countries for more than 200,000 customers a year. Improved technology and repeat business have bolstered growth. Sales represent total booking prices. In response to rising demand for higher-end golf travel, the firm recently launched its own corporate events division. Marshall and Harding are also co-founders of Spabreaks.com, No 2 in this league table.
