GOLF COURSES CLUB TOGETHER TO BRING MORE TOURISTS TO THE NORTH WEST

first_imgFAILTE Ireland today gave its support to a unique link-up between three golf clubs aimed at bringing more tourists to Donegal and Sligo.The clubs – County Sligo Golf Club at Rosses Point, Nairn & Portnoo and Donegal Golf Club Murvagh – are coming together for the unique scheme which will allow golfers to play all three during breaks.These three great links courses have joined forces to produce a Golf Pass that allows golfers to play all three, at their leisure for only €149 a price that is right up there with the best value for money in the market place at the moment. Speaking at the launch, Martin Donnelly from Fáilte Ireland said: “The project is a partnership between the three courses and Fáilte Ireland’s North West office, aimed at improving not only the golf offering but also providing the local accommodation base, with the opportunity to build packages for sale around the three rounds of golf. We hope that this in turn will entice customers to stay longer and of course spend more, during those longer stays.”Terry Brady, 2013 Captain of Rosses Point Golf Club said: “We are delighted to get this product launched in conjunction with our clubs in Donegal. These are very competitive times in the golf industry and whatever we can do to compete more effectively in the market place, is very welcome. Well done to our General Manager David O’Donovan for his work on the project.”Peter Sweeney, 2013 Captain of Donegal Golf Club Murvagh said: “I’d like to thank our partner clubs, Co. Sligo and Nairn & Portnoo together with Fáilte Ireland for their support on the development of this important golf product and also say well done to Grainne Dorrian, our Manager who worked on the project.”Hugh Shovlin, 2013 Captain of Nairn & Portnoo Golf club went on to say, “Nairn & Portnoo Golf Club is always striving to improve our golf offering and by reaching out to our local clubs through the North West Links Golf Pass, we now have a great value, county wide product that we feel can compete in terms of quality and value for money, well done to Daragh Lyons our Club Professional and all the group working on the development”. The Golf Pass is support by 10,000 A5 flyers ready for distribution throughout accommodation premises in Sligo & Donegal and throughout Ireland and the Golf Pass itself can be purchased by contacting Donegal Golf Club, Nairn & Portnoo Golf Club or County Sligo Golf Club.Going forward, the North West Links Golf Pass will be promoted on the club web sites, www.discoverireland.ie and through Tourism Ireland’s web site for the overseas markets, together with upcoming golf, trade and general consumer shows in Ireland and overseas.  GOLF COURSES CLUB TOGETHER TO BRING MORE TOURISTS TO THE NORTH WEST was last modified: May 8th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:GOLF COURSES CLUB TOGETHER TO BRING MORE TOURISTS TO THE NORTH WESTlast_img
