Europe’s largest golf tour operator Golfbreaks.com has teamed up with Tourism Ireland to offer golfers extra incentive to book a golf break in the Emerald Isle.
Golfers booking for four or more players before the end of February – to travel at any time in 2012 – will receive a brand new TaylorMade Rescue 11 club.
Ireland has long been one of Europe’s most popular and established golf destinations, sporting some of the finest links golf in the world at Royal County Down, Ballybunion, Tralee, Waterville, Old Head and Portrush.
The country has suffered during the global economic downturn and tourism, once a guaranteed mainstay of the Irish economy, is now of utmost importance to maintain jobs and encourage visitors to spend money in the Irish economy.
The offer is being run in conjunction with Tourism Ireland, whose Deputy Director David Boyce said: “We are delighted to be working with Golfbreaks.com in helping golfers choose Ireland in 2012.
We are working hard to drive home the message that a golfing holiday in Ireland is about much more than 18 holes – the combination of world-class golf and our unique brand of hospitality plays a key role in attracting golfers.
We hope the club reward leads to a better score on our renowned courses, as well as helping create a lasting memory of your trip.”
