G Golf CEO Joe Shannon chats to David Connellan and Andreas Lagercrantz…
Now that Ireland is fully reopen, it’s just fantastic to see Tourism Ireland promoting golf as one of their main marketing themes. Ireland is considered to be one of the world’s premier golf destinations with 11 of our world famous courses in the current Golf Digest World Top 100 list.
We also have over 400 golf courses in all corners of the Emerald Isle and we have approximately 1/3 of the true links courses in the world! As we exit the pandemic, Tourism Ireland are starting to highlight Ireland’s hidden gems in their marketing activity.
We got a sneak preview of this strategy when G Golf Ireland CEO, Joe Shannon, caught up with Tourism Ireland‘s Golf Executive, David Connellan. Also on the call was Andreas Lagercrantz who is Swedish PGA pro golfer Alex Noren‘s manager and brother. Andreas is involved in a number of golf travel businesses and with the support of Tourism Ireland has organised a group of high profile Swedish media and influencers to visit Ireland at the end of March.
Their itinerary includes Co. Louth (Baltray), Royal Belfast and Warrenpoint for golf, as well as visits to the new Game of Thrones experience in the Belfast area and other cultural experiences. Check out at the video below to find out more about Tourism Ireland’s strategy for golf and the incredible depth of quality golf available all across our beautiful island. .
