Strategy launched to put Victoria in world’s top 5 golf destinations

POSTED ON November 2, 2018 @ 2:52 pm

Led by Melbourne’s Sandbelt and supported by courses on the Mornington and Bellarine Peninsulas, Victoria is renowned for hosting some of Australia’s best golf courses and golf holiday experiences.

The state will now, with help of Visit Victoria’s recent report Victoria’s Golf Tourism Strategy 2018-2023, strive towards becoming internationally recognised as one of the top five golf destinations in the world.

The report is aimed to pave the way for growth in the industry and to assist in showcasing Melbourne as one of the best year-round golfing destinations in the world, and capitalise on that reputation to disperse visitation to Victoria’s other premier golf regions.

The strategy is set out to leverage of the state’s hosting of major international golf events such as the World Cup of Golf this year and the President’s Cup in 2019, to allow images of the city to be broadcasted to households around the world and help to further grow Victoria’s visitor economy through increased tourism to the state.

With Victoria’s calendar of major golf events secured and existing global and national recognition as a premier golf destination, the implementation of Victoria’s Golf Tourism Strategy 2018-2023 hopes to further affirm the state’s role as Australia’s Home of Golf.
