To Bandon and beyond! Oregon’s golf tourism set to soar when the 2018 North America Convention heads to Central Oregon


1 June, 2017

Golf tour operators will get the chance to explore Oregon when the 10th annual North America Golf Tourism Convention (NAC) heads to the central region of the Beaver State in 2018. The event, organized by global golf tourism organization IAGTO, is being staged at Sunriver Resort, near the town of Bend in Central Oregon, from 24-27 June 2018. For state and regional tourism officials it will be a chance to showcase the incredible golf product of Central Oregon: more than 30 courses that, when combined with world-renowned Bandon Dunes on the coast, is set to make Oregon one of the most desirable locations for golf travelers.

“While many know Oregon because of the success of Bandon Dunes, there is much more to the Oregon golf experience – and Central Oregon is a story in itself,” said Teresa O’Neill, Travel Oregon Vice President, Global Sales.
Alana Hughson, CEO of the Central Oregon Visitors Association, added: “Three of the US Top 100 golf courses (Crosswater, Pronghorn and Tetherow) are located in Central Oregon and the PGA Champion's Tour was held at Sunriver's Crosswater from 2007-2010, but our destination offers much more than an award-winning golf experience.

“Bend-Sunriver is famous as an outdoor enthusiasts’ paradise, with world-renowned fly fishing, cycling, hiking and rock climbing, as well as Oregon's famous wineries and microbreweries.”

Central Oregon enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine each year and is home to golf courses designed by some of the game’s greatest golf course designers. Hughson added: “Within the state of Oregon the variety of golf is extraordinary, and in Central Oregon alone the golf experience spans the wetlands of Crosswater to the high desert of Pronghorn.”

Both O’Neill and Hughson see NAC 2018 as being a turning point in the expansion of international golf tourism to Oregon and particularly the Central Oregon region, as well as a great opportunity to grow the domestic golf travel business from other parts of the USA.
“Canadians are our number one international market,” said O’Neill. “They have long known about Oregon, and know it for golf. We have grown that market from the west coast and now with new flights from Toronto, the east coast of Canada is discovering Oregon as well.
“Of course, international travelers are an important market for golfing in Central Oregon because they stay four times as long and spend four times as much as other visitors,” said Hughson, adding, “the US domestic market is also a core focus for NAC 2018 and Central Oregon with nearly 20 flights a day into Redmond from US airports.”
Europe is currently the biggest overseas market for golf visitors, thanks to non-stop flights to Portland. However, NAC 2018 is also seen as a huge opportunity to boost golf tourism from Asia, particularly China, Korea and Japan. China and Japan are currently the state’s two biggest overseas visitor markets.

Besides golf, Oregon offers a huge array of sights and activities to visitors, including world-class pinot noir and pinot gris wines from its 702 wineries, more than 350 miles of coast with all beaches open to the public, the highest number of scenic byways and bikeways of any state in the USA, year-round skiing on Mt Hood, the crystal-clear blue waters of Crater Lake National Park, tax-free shopping and a farm to table culinary scene. Furthermore, quirky and sophisticated Portland, boasting 84 of the state’s 300-plus microbreweries, and home to Nike, has earned the nickname “Munich on the Willamette”. There are no less than 30 microbreweries in Bend itself for NAC delegates to enjoy.

“You have to visit Oregon to understand Oregon,” O’Neill declared. “I think this is one of our biggest opportunities for inspiring travelers to choose Oregon. Once visitors experience this place firsthand, they want to see more of the state.”

She added: “It is both an honor and a privilege for Oregon to be selected as the host destination for NAC in 2018. Oregon truly is a golfer’s paradise and we invite delegates to share the passion we have for Oregon golf and hope they have the experience of a lifetime to take home with them and inspire their clients to visit.”

IAGTO Chief Executive Peter Walton said: “I visited Oregon for the first time last summer and I found the entire experience quite breathtaking. I had anticipated some stunning landscapes, but the quality, variety and beauty of the golf in Central Oregon is exceptional. It was the easiest decision of the past 10 years to award NAC 2018 to Oregon and I know that our golf tour operators from around the world are going to be blown away by the experience!”

The 10th NAC in Central Oregon will take place from 24-27 June, 2018.
The 9th NAC takes place in Miami from 25-28 June 2017 (www.iagto.com/NAC).

Nassau, Bahamas (April 21, 2017) – Baha Mar President Graeme Davis announced today the official opening of Baha Mar, the $4.2 billion integrated resort development located along the pristine beaches of New Providence in the Bahamas. Following five days of celebrations for the 1,700 current associates, today’s ribbon cutting ceremony marks the birth of Baha Mar as the first of the next generation of great destination resorts. Reservations are now open online at bahamar.com to book summer stays at Grand Hyatt Baha Mar.
The first phase opening includes the preview of The Grand Hyatt Baha Mar; Baha Mar Casino; Royal Blue Golf Club; The Baha Mar Convention, Art and Entertainment Center; Peter Burwash International tennis courts and facilities; multiple restaurants, bars and lounges; select ESPA spa experiences; the resort’s extensive pool and beach areas and the entry show lakes and fountain shows choreographed to music, film and lights.

Each guest room offers lavish amenities, contemporary décor and outdoor balconies for guests to enjoy the fresh ocean air and views of the beach, resort pools, dramatic fountain shows and Royal Blue Golf Club.
Grand Hyatt Baha Mar manages The Baha Mar Convention, Art and Entertainment Center, the destination’s 200,000 square foot indoor and outdoor convention facility, and connects directly to Baha Mar Casino, the largest casino in the Caribbean. 20 various bars and restaurants will open in the Grand Hyatt under the leadership of Executive Chef Brent Martin.
Grand Hyatt Baha Mar debuts five expansive resort pools for guests, including Blue Hole, inspired by the natural saltwater blue holes of the Bahamas, luxury poolside cabanas and a half mile of pristine sandy beaches.

Golf in Kent has a spring in its step

Golf in Kent has a spring in its step with the recent announcement that the county will be hosting The Open Championship, one of golf’s most prestigious championships, at Royal St George’s in 2020.

Kent has an enviable record of staging Open Championships that dates back to 1894. The 2020 tournament will be the 18th time that the county has hosted the major and the 15th time for Royal St George’s. Royal Cinque Ports has also played host to the tournament twice, in 1909 and 1920 and Prince’s accommodated the event in 1932. Read more about the announcement here.

Kent is Heaven Sent for Lovers of Links...

Kent’s east coast is one of the greatest stretches of links that you’ll find anywhere in Britain and a top destination for links lovers.

Recognised as one of the top 10 golf courses in England, Royal St George’s offers stunning views over Pegwell Bay and the iconic White Cliffs. It presents a difficult links challenge thanks to severely undulating fairways, tricky greens and a splattering of blind tee shots and pot bunkers.

Nearby Royal Cinque Ports, regarded by many as one of the finest links in the world, is a true test of golf thanks to tight, hanging lies, undulating fairways and a tough back nine into the wind. Prince’s boasts 27 holes of championship links in three 9-hole loops, The Shore, The Dunes and The Himalayas. Each loop has its own unique characteristics that include an impressive array of revetted bunkers and rolling greens, made all the more difficult by the strong breezes from Sandwich Bay.

The East coast quartet is completed by championship links gem, Littlestone. The traditional links, originally laid out by Laidlaw Purves, is set on naturally undulating land and its own range of sand dunes between Romney Marsh and the English Channel.

Royal Cinque Ports, Prince’s & Littlestone, together with Royal St George’s is a Links Lover’s Dream
