I cannot enter our business "Gliding  club" as a category in Google+ as that business does not exist in the options given.

Unfortunatley Google does not have very specific categories so you will be unable to list it as Gliding Club. Most other gliding clubs have it categorised as Sports Club so give that a try. You will still show up for relevant searches in the local pack.
