Launch of the Scottish Golf Tourism Strategy 2013 - 2020

With just one week to go the Team Scotland golf partners, Golf Tourism Scotland, VisitScotland, Scottish Enterprise, HIE the SGU / SLGA and with the support of the PGA in Scotland, would once again like to invite you to join us for the launch of the Scottish Golf Tourism Development Strategy 2013 - 2020, "Driving Forward Together" at Murrayshall House Hotel and Golf Courses next Thursday 12th September 2013.

"Driving Forward Together" is the first national golf tourism strategy and has been developed by both the golf tourism industry and the public sector working in partnership for the benefit of golf tourism businesses in Scotland.

Golf Tourism is a tourism sector that is acknowledged to deliver growth and jobs, the combined value of Golf Tourism to Scotland is £220 million and it is estimated that this could grow to over £300 million by 2020. It is an industry in which Scotland competes well internationally. KPMG Golf Travel Insights 2013 ranked Scotland third in the world in terms of future golfing tourism hotspots.

But to continue to be a contender in this fiercely competitive global marketplace we need to ensure that we are all aligned behind a common ambition. A key strand to the strategy is unifying the golf tourism sector in a Team Scotland approach and modernising the approach taken by many businesses to marketing, promotion and customer service.

We do hope you can join us at the launch event to continue the discussion about what we can do together to ensure that ambition for growth and Scotland "to be the world's leading golfing destination by 2020" is achieved.
