Today is #WorldTourismDay and it marks just 26 days until the start of one of the biggest events in the golf tourism calendar: Scottish Golf Tourism Week.

From October 23-27, golf tour operators from across the globe will arrive at Trump Turnberry in Ayrshire to meet with Scottish golf businesses with the aim of reinforcing Scotland’s status as the world’s top golf destination.

Here are SEVEN things you need to know about how Scottish Golf Tourism Week will benefit Scotland:

• The event enjoyed a hugely successful debut in St Andrews last year and, once again, is being supported by VisitScotland and Scottish Enterprise in order to connect the world’s leading golf tour operators with Scottish businesses interested in attracting visiting golfers.

– – –

• For those Scottish businesses that perhaps don’t have the resources to attend overseas events, it offers unparalleled access to potential buyers.

– – –

• It hopes to increase the number of inbound golf tourists above the current figure of 220,000 and, in doing so, will help VisitScotland and Scottish Enterprise meet their aim of increasing the value of golf tourism to £300m by 2020.
