One of Northern Ireland’s premier golf and spa resorts has teed up a major welcome for its golf visitors.
The Park Resort, recently named ‘Best Golf Resort in Ulster’ by the Golfers Guide to Ireland, has successfully attained the ‘Golfers Welcome’ accreditation alongside a number of others in Tourism NI’s accommodation welcome schemes.
Free to join, and open to providers participating in Tourism NI’s Quality Grading Scheme, the welcome schemes help direct visitors to accommodation that pays particular attention to their various needs.
The ‘Golfers Welcome’ accreditation ensures that Roe Park Resort’s golfing guests will have access to facilities including a drying space for outdoor clothing, secure storage for golf clubs and flexible meal times, as well as information on local courses, golf shops and driving ranges.
The Limavady resort is rated four-star under Tourism NI’s Quality Grading Scheme, meaning that it is offers an ‘excellent’ standard of service and facilities.
The 118-room resort is renowned for its superb golf and spa facilities, and ahead of The Open arriving to Royal Portrush in 2019 it recently completed an investment of over £400,000 in its golf and leisure facilities, including a state-of-the-art Golf Academy.
Caroline Adams, Tourism NI Quality and Standards Manager, said: “The luscious greens and facilities at the Roe Park Resort, set in the scenic backdrop of the Roe Valley, are perfectly in tune with the reputation Northern Ireland now has as a place that delivers great golfers, great courses and great events.
“With the biggest golf event in the world heading our way in 2019, there is no doubt this is the moment to capitalise. Roe Park Resort is showing the way in terms of creating a quality welcome for golf visitors, and I would encourage other accommodation providers to do the same in the run up to this world-class event.”
Having had cast members from Game of Thrones and Dracula stay at the resort, Roe Park has also gained ‘Film Crew Welcome’ accreditation from Tourism NI.
This accreditation is among the total of 10 welcome schemes Tourism NI offers to accommodation providers participating in its Quality Grading Scheme.
As well helping to direct visitors to accommodation suited to their needs, the welcome schemes also recognise the special efforts made by tourism businesses to provide for different visitor groups.
