Battle of the Early Bird deals

Battle of the Early Bird deals

Not to be outdone by rival’ ‘Early Birdie’ promotion, Your Golf Travel has launched its own ‘Early Eagle’ promotion onto the market.

Rather than a battle over golf holiday supremacy it would appear the companies have embarked on a war of wits between intellectual marketeers.

YGT, which claims to be Europe’s largest golf tour operator, was set up by founders Ross Marshall and Andrew Harding in 2005, when they started it in a back bedroom and maxed out their credit cards to get going.

It is now delivering golf breaks in more than 20 countries for over 200,000 golfers a year.

If you are booking a golf break in 2013, the ‘Early Eagle’ deals could save you up to £400 and offers vouchers for Direct Golf UK and a six-issue subscription to Today’s Golfer, the UK’s biggest selling golf magazine.

Here’s what a Your Golf Travel spokesman had to say about the deals:

“Under the terms of the offer, the bigger the group, the bigger the size of the savings and golfers will be spoilt for choice with some of the game’s most iconic venues featured in the promotion.

A group of 16 golfers can save £150 on a February visit to the five-star Celtic Manor Resort, venue for the 2010 Ryder Cup, meaning it costs only £69.50 per person for a one-night, two round break.

Alternatively, people can enjoy a three-night stay at the luxury Dona Filipe resort in Portugal’s Algarve including two rounds at San Lorenzo for just £196.50 per person in February, a saving of £200.

Andrew Harding, co-founder of Your Golf Travel, said: “With the winter months approaching, golfers need something to look forward to in the new year and there is some fantastic value to be had at some of golf’s most famous courses.”

The innovating company is committed to providing the lowest prices on golfing holidays and breaks on the internet and offers more than 2,000 venues and courses worldwide through its website and brochure.

Your Golf Travel offers a range of innovative golf breaks, including ‘inside the ropes’ packages to major championship venues, allowing you to follow in the footsteps of the pros, and has previously sold breaks for as little as £1.
