Fife attending Golf Live
Archived news: published on Monday 14 May 2012 by Fife Council
The Fife Golf Partnership and Fife Tourism Partnership are attending this year’s Golf Live event for the first time. They will be highlighting the Golf Partnership’s new website and the recently launched Fife Golf Map.
Golf Live is the world’s leading interactive golf show. Held at London Golf Club in Kent from 18th to 20th May, it is a consumer show aimed at the British market and has proved very lucrative for Scottish businesses. Fife’s attendance aims to take advantage of more people holidaying at home and increase the number of visitors to the Kingdom.
Ann Camus, Fife Tourism Partnership Manager, is attending the event: “The new Fife Golf Map was recently showcased on the Welcome to Fife stand at this year’s VisitScotland expo. It lists all the courses and driving ranges across Fife and includes accommodation providers and tour operators. With snippets of information and links to other useful sites the map is a handy and comprehensive guide to golf in Fife.”
The map has been produced by The Fife Golf Partnership together with the Fife Tourism Partnership and supported by funding from the European Regional Development Fund. The Golf Partnership is a new network of Fife Golf courses and clubs, accommodation providers, golf travel trade and industry trade associations working together to promote Fife as a must-visit golf destination.
The Fife Golf Partnership’s new website, www.golffife.co.uk, provides a one-stop shop for everything the golfer need to know about golf in Fife. Under the headings of play, stay, taste and explore, and with an interactive map and contact details, visitors to the site can access all the information they’ll need to make their Fife golf experience a memorable one.
Keith Winter, Head of Enterprise, Planning & Protective Services at Fife Council, is interim Chair of the Fife Golf Partnership:
“Fife is the ideal golf location. It was voted European Golf Destination of the Year 2012 by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators and it deserves that accolade. There’s something to suit all abilities and budgets from stunning coastal courses to picturesque parkland. Fife also has a nine-hole course where players use traditional hickory clubs and experience golf as it was played 100 years ago. With more than 40 golf courses, including Open Championship qualifying courses and The Old Course, Fife has real variety on offer.”
