PlayGolfinFrance.com website launched ahead of Ryder Cup
IAGTO (the Global Golf Tourism Organisation) today unveiled a new website, www.playgolfinfrance.com, created on behalf of the French golf tourism industry, to showcase the golf destinations of France ahead of the Ryder Cup in Paris this September.
The objective of the website is to inspire golfers to consider France for their next golf vacation, particularly once their interest has been piqued by the Ryder Cup. The golfer can select what aspect of their vacation is most important to them (after golf of course) and immediately see which destinations combine golf best with gastronomy, wine, beaches, outdoor sports, spa, thalasso, culture, nature, family activities, city breaks or shopping.
The website also presents France’s golf destinations region by region and features more than 150 golf courses and golf resorts across the country.
The website was built with the support of regional tourism offices and is endorsed by Atout France (the French Tourism Board) and the FFG (the French Golf Federation). A search engine enables golfers to find IAGTO member golf tour operators, in their own country, that sell golf vacations to France.
Guillaume Post, IAGTO Marketing and Communications Manager said: “We are delighted with this new digital offering, showcasing the diverse array of golf experiences in France, a few weeks before the second biggest spectator sports event in the world comes to Paris for the first time”.
Alexandra Barton, Director of IAGTO France, added: "France is of course synonymous with food & wine, history and heritage, everything that already makes it the world's top tourist destination. But there is so much to shout about as a golf destination. We hope this platform can assist many avid or casual golfers find exactly what they are looking for with ease so that they can go play golf in France!"
