Promoting golf in Northern Ireland is a major focus for Tourism Ireland, in GB and in other important golf markets around the world. Tourism Ireland is taking every opportunity to highlight the 2017 Irish Open at Portstewart, which provides a fantastic platform to put golf in Northern Ireland in the global spotlight once again, showcasing what we have to offer to golfers around the world.

 

David Boyce, Tourism Ireland’s deputy head of Britain, said: We were delighted to invite these leading GB golf journalists to Northern Ireland, to experience two of our top courses for themselves and to have the chance to hear all about the plans for the upcoming Irish Open at Portstewart. Tourism Ireland has a busy programme of promotions under way, to highlight our world-class golf and encourage more people to consider a golfing holiday in Northern Ireland. Golf is the world’s largest sports-related travel market and we are working hard to drive home the message that a golfing holiday in Northern Ireland is about much more than a round of 18 holes – the combination of our world-class courses and our unique brand of hospitality plays a key role in attracting golfers.

 

Other Tourism Ireland activity to highlight golf in Northern Ireland this year includes co-operative promotions in conjunction with top GB golf tour operators, like Your Golf Travel, Golfbreaks and Club Choice Ireland; online ads on seven popular golf websites until July, linking through to great golf information an offers on Ireland.com; a Tourism Ireland stand, with industry partners, at the BMW PGA Championship at the famous Wentworth Club in Surrey, in May; and regular ‘Golf Ireland’ e-newsletters to the Tourism Ireland database of more than 7,000 golfers around GB, promoting golf in Northern Ireland, golf industry offers and the Irish Open.
