International golf journalists swing into action at Portstewart

1 Mins read

Golf fans from GB, Mainland Europe and the United States – and potential golf holidaymakers for Northern Ireland – are set to read or hear all about our world-class golf, following a recent visit by leading golf journalists.

The journalists – here to attend the Northern Ireland Open at Galgorm Castle – were guests of Tourism Ireland and Tourism NI. In addition to watching the pros in action, the group also had the opportunity to test their skills on the newly-announced venue for the 2017 Irish Open, when they played the Strand Course at Portstewart Golf Club. The journalists also played Galgorm Castle and Royal Portrush.

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 will be 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 golf journalists to Northern Ireland, to experience some of our top courses for themselves. Tourism Ireland has an extensive 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.”
