Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

TULFARRIS Ho­tel and Golf Re­sort was one of the three tourist com­pa­nies to join Tourism Ire­land at a pro­mo­tion drive at the BMW PGA Cham­pi­onship held at Went­worth, in south-east Eng­land

One of the Euro­pean Tour’s big­gest golf com­pe­ti­tions, the BMW PGA Cham­pi­onship at­tracts top play­ers, thou­sands of spec­ta­tors and in­ter­na­tional jour­nal­ists each year – pro­vid­ing a fan­tas­tic plat­form to show­case our world-class golf. Golf hol­i­days in Ire­land con­tinue to be a ma­jor fo­cus for Tourism Ire­land in Bri­tain, and in other key mar­kets around the world, and the or­gan­i­sa­tion is rolling out an ex­ten­sive pro­gramme of pro­mo­tions to grow the num­ber of golf tourists in 2019 and be­yond.

‘Our pres­ence at this year’s BMW PGA Cham­pi­onship pro­vided us with an­other ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity to high­light our world-class golf in Wick­low and else­where around Ire­land,’ said Julie Wak­ley, ‘Tourism Ire­land’s Head of Great Bri­tain. ‘This is just one el­e­ment of Tourism Ire­land’s busy pro­mo­tional pro­gramme to en­cour­age more golfers in Bri­tain to con­sider a hol­i­day in Ire­land this year.

‘Our pro­mo­tions are re­mind­ing golfers about the fan­tas­tic cour­ses where our cham­pi­ons honed and per­fected their skills. We’re also tak­ing ev­ery op­por­tu­nity to high­light the fact that the Ry­der Cup will take place in Ire­land at Adare Manor in 2026.’
