Travelling Golfers want to play the Better Courses.
Among the hundreds of thousands of golfers in the world, many are avid travellers. They like to combine holidays, weekend breaks and business trips with a chance to play the best courses in their chosen destinations. Great courses act like magnets to discerning golfers. Poor quality courses and facilities are not what travelling golfers are typically looking for – although value for money is often a consideration.
It is surprisingly difficult however, for travelling golfers to identify the best areas for golfing breaks, which courses to play when they get there, and what to expect from any particular course. Most of the available guides (books) contain purely factual information and give the golfer little idea of the quality of the courses, or which courses will give them the best “golfing day-out. Distinctively different from golf guides mentioned above, are large, glossy, coffee-table books, that might delve into very considerable detail on a few “blue-chip” courses – but are far from ideal for planning and booking golfing trips or holidays.
Many online golf guides display all golf courses but fail to answer key questions for golfers. Travel sites list only those golf clubs and hotels with which they have commercial arrangements. Still other sites show only the very top courses or focus on a limited geography. Travelling golfers often want to play the better courses in an area, and need a reliable rating system, contact details and information about what they’ll find when they get there.
One needs to set out a remedy for these information gaps. Golfers want to find out what each course is really like and are eager to learn about the historical background of each golf club. Golfers want high quality photos of the courses and location maps, showing all highly rated courses within a region,to facilitate golf break and holiday planning.
