Golfers looking to book a golf break to Ireland this year can take advantage of a unique offer from, Europe’s largest golf tour operator.

Golfers booking for four or more players before the end of February – to travel at any time in 2012 – will receive a brand new TaylorMade Rescue 11 club, the perfect weapon for negotiating the courses of the Emerald Isle.

Keith Mitchell, Marketing Director of said: “Ireland is quite rightly renowned for the quality and variety of its golf courses and resorts, this unique reward for early booking will make tackling them just that little bit easier.”

With its golfers claiming six Majors in the space of five years, including three of the last seven being won by Northern Ireland players, there’s never been a better time to visit this golfing island. And with dozens of fantastic courses to choose from, ranging from classic links layouts to modern parkland designs, there’s something to suit every golfer… and every budget.

And it’s not just the golfers of Northern Ireland that are scooping major awards; the influential Golf Week magazine this month named Royal County Down and Royal Portrush 1st and 3rd in its Top 100 courses in GB & Ireland, while Irish magazine Backspin recently listed Portrush as its No.1 links course, just as it was announced that the Irish Open will be returning to the Antrim Coast this summer.

The offer is being run in conjunction with Tourism Ireland, whose Deputy Director David Boyce said: “We are delighted to be working with in helping golfers choose Ireland in 2012. We are working hard to drive home the message that a golfing holiday in Ireland is about much more than 18 holes – the combination of world-class golf and our unique brand of hospitality plays a key role in attracting golfers. We hope the club reward leads to a better score on our renowned courses, as well as helping create a lasting memory of your trip.”
