Google Chrome for business - is there a way to centrally control bookmarks?

We are considering rolling out Google Chrome to our business.

We have downloaded the 'Chrome for business' msi and all the adm templates and pushed out to a test machine.

Everything seems to work quite well except one major fault.  There is no way to control bookmarks.

We would need to supply our users with a number of bookmarks as well as allowing them to add their own.

Google's solution seems to be to create our own home page which contains links to all the favourites, but as with 99% of businesses, we would want to get our intranet page as the homepage.

As far as I can tell, there is no way to do this.  Can anyone conform if this is the case or provide a solution?

Not really ideal.  

The whole point of a bookmark is to access it from wherever you are, not to jump back to the Intranet then click on a series of links.

The user should also be able to save their own bookmarks in the same location as the default ones, they shouldn't have to look in two different places.
