Golf Advisor, NBC Sports’ ultimate digital destination for the traveling golfer, today announced a new partnership with leading golf course management company, Troon, making Golf Advisor the official licensee of Troon Golf Vacations.
Golf Advisor will assume responsibilities for marketing and fulfillment for hundreds of properties within the Troon Golf Vacations destination portfolio. Troon Golf Vacations destinations include Hawaii, Scottsdale, Florida, Las Vegas, Palm Springs, Puerto Rico and more. Notable golf courses include Kapalua on Maui, Troon North Golf Club in Scottsdale, Pronghorn Resort in Oregon, Tiburón Golf Club in Florida, and Bahia Beach Resort & Golf Club in Puerto Rico, to name a few.
“The rapid evolution of the travel offerings introduced in 2018 to the Golf Advisor brand has been exciting to watch,” said Jeff Foster, senior vice president, GolfNow and Emerging Businesses. “This new partnership complements an already great resource for the avid traveling golfer. Since Troon has always been a valued partner within our businesses, expanding our relationship to drive more golf travelers to Troon locations is a very natural next step.”
“We are excited to partner with Golf Advisor and Golf Channel on this collaboration with Troon Golf Vacations that will ultimately deliver golf vacation travelers to our family of courses, resort partners and destinations,” stated Tim Schantz, president of Troon. “Together with our Troon-supported sales and marketing reach, combined with Golf Advisor and Golf Channel’s marketing, we will create new synergies that will connect traveling golfers with stunning resort locations.”
Troon Golf Vacations currently offers customized golf packages that couple resort accommodations and Troon-affiliated courses around the world. Golf Advisor, which features more than 800,000 golf course reviews, award-winning editorial content and a host of travel experiences, will use its resources to significantly enhance the Troon Golf Vacations brand and help heighten awareness of Troon-affiliated destinations across North America through digital promotion, social media and via Golf Channel on-air exposure. Operationally, Golf Advisor plans to integrate new technologies to improve the overall booking experience for golfers and maximize efficiencies for both golf travelers and host destinations.
Golfers will be able to continue to book their travel experiences through the Troon Golf Vacations page on TroonGolfVacations.com – which Golf Advisor will host and manage – and now also via Golf Advisor.
