“Our expanding portfolio echoes the growing reach of the European Tour and creates many new and exciting opportunities for golf travel,” said David MacLaren, Head of European Tour Properties.

“The appointments-based nature of the International Golf Travel Market gives us the ideal platform to meet leading industry buyers and tour operators from key golf markets face-to-face, showcase our network and pursue opportunities for business.”

The continued growth of the European Tour Properties’ network underlines its position as a leading golf and real estate brand. This was further enhanced in 2016 as 11 of its members featured in the prestigious listing of Continental Europe’s finest golf resorts, compiled by the UK’s Golf World magazine.
