Tour operators specialising in golf holidays have seen a 9.3% increase in sales in 2012 compared to 2011.

New statistics from the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) found growth in the golf sector with the increases expected to continue into 2013 and 2014.

“With our report showing a steady, healthy growth of the sector, I believe we can all look forward to a third consecutive year of golf tourism growth in 2014 – an optimistic forecast I am confident will be reflected in next year’s global golf tourism survey,” said Peter Walton, chief executive of IAGTO at the International Golf Travel Market this week.

“Golf resorts, courses and hotels, should continue to focus on their individual strengths, but also, and more importantly, on working together with public sector bodies, to promote their golf destination and position it in the best possible way to attract more golf travellers and golf tour operator business,” he added.
