Thoughts from a strong period of golf travel around the globe
As we approach the end of summer and plans start to take hold for 2019 I thought it may be an interesting exercise to share some observations on the current state of the golf travel industry. With a vibrant U.S. economy and strong US dollar, the international golf travel market is very strong. Whereas we would historically see the booking window for trips to the British Isles peak in January of the year of travel, that date has now moved 5 – 6 months earlier to July – August. Correspondingly, the primary courses in the British Isles are enjoying extremely busy visitor bookings for the 2019 season – hard to imagine the dark days of 2009!
