Golf Tourism England tees up new website

Golf Tourism England (GTE) has a new website showcasing golf courses, along with accommodation, travel options and packages for golfers.

It aims to help golfers from overseas to tailor their holiday, and allows users to search by airports, seaports, architects, regions and types.

GTE has developed the website with the support of the Discover England Fund, administered by VisitEngland.

Packages on the site offer golfers the chance to find out about playing in different regions, then click through to book with specialist operators.

Andrew Cooke, Golf Tourism England chief executive, said: “We are delighted with the new digital offering we are now able to provide, showcasing the magnificent courses we have here in England.

“With an extraordinary number of golf courses and attractions across the country, we are keen to continue to grow our partnerships and provide visitors with even more choice.

“With strong imagery, helpful links and engaging content, we are confident that this platform demonstrates England’s growing on and off-course offering in a really effective way, ensuring we are able to continue to promote England as a very attractive proposition for the overseas golfer.”

Andrew Stokes, VisitEngland director, added: “This project was designed to inspire more golfers to visit as they view the diversity of the tourism experience on offer in England driving in-bound tourism and its economic benefits across the regions of England.”
