Troon and golf.extra are pleased to announce a strategic partnership that brings together the world’s leading third-party management company and Germany’s top specialist golf travel company.
To mark the new association, the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing and its partner have unveiled a new bespoke showcase on www.golf-extra.com to demonstrate the strength and depth of the golf experiences on offer to golfers from across Troon’s International Division.
“golf.extra and Troon have strong brand synergies of discerning experiences, excellence, and providing our guests the very best,” commented Bruce Glasco, chief operating officer, managing director, Troon international division. “We look forward to a close working relationship with the team at golf.extra and providing a seamless booking process for guests across the strong German speaking golfing regions of northern Europe.”
Following the creation of similar partnerships in the UK, this new relationship forges ties with yet another of Europe’s leading tour operators and a one-stop-shop to a plethora of international experiences, including the popular Spanish venue at Las Colinas Golf & Country Club, the stunning Greek resort of Costa Navarino and provides the chance to follow in the footsteps of the modern game’s headline players at Abu Dhabi Golf Club, not forgetting the more exotic experiences provided by PalmGolf Marrakech-Palmeraie and PalmGolf Marrakech-Ourika. Further experiences include the traditional English links of Prince’s Golf Club; the history of Chateau D’Augerville in France and the challenge of Norway’s Artic Circle at Lofoten Links.
