Switching strategies: Attracting domestic golfers

22nd June 2021
Global travel restrictions have brought international golf travel to a standstill. But a number of destinations, including Le Golf National in France, have taken the opportunity to strengthen their connection with the domestic market and minimise pandemic disruption to business. We speak to Philippe Pilato, Director of Operations at the former Ryder Cup venue to find out more.

The rise of the long stay home

22nd June 2021
Second homes were traditionally bought with a desire to escape from routine, to destress, unwind and recharge. But the ability to work from home and the desire to flee to a safe haven during the pandemic has changed all that. European Tour Destinations Real Estate Consultant, Sandra Ruttle, assesses why residents are extending their second home stays and what that means for resorts who are now wanting to match a different set of needs and wants.

Golf’s new target segments

22nd June 2021
As global golf participation continues to surge, the prospect of a strong recovery for golf travel is strengthening. But who are these golfers and what are they looking for? Head of European Tour Destinations, Ian Knox, takes a closer look and tells us how venues are preparing to appeal to golf’s newcomers… Resorts can be forgiven for feeling frustrated. Inundated with stories of ‘golf’s renaissance’ and surging popularity, but unable to translate this to success on the ground due to ongoing travel restrictions. Savvy resorts will be well aware that the rising popularity of the sport (2020 participation numbers were the strongest in 17 years) opens up opportunities to connect with a new generation of customers. The question is, who are these new players? Let’s take a look at three prime segments to understand the scale of the opportunity, and how some resorts are already making moves to appeal to golf’s newcomers. Experience chasers Off-course golf participation has experienced a stratospheric rise – with no signs of slowing down. Great Britain & Ireland alone enjoyed a 2 million uplift in driving range use in 2020, primarily fuelled by the advent of technology and experience-led solutions, with similar trends across Europe and North America. For this group, golf alone may not be enough. They crave excitement, entertainment, activities. They want an experience. The more experiential the product a resort presents, the more attractive it will be to this segment. Across our network of venues, we have already seen the likes of PGA Catalunya Golf & Wellness embrace driving range technology, and bolster the experience they can offer to this new wave of players.  Families Family dynamics have shifted dramatically over the last year. Pandemic lockdowns have resulted in families spending a far greater amount of time together; welcome for many, a source of tension for others. But whether they are looking for a release or quality time away from home together, resorts can be perfectly positioned to appeal to a family’s needs. A key to this is the promise of a safe and secure environment. And with the likelihood of continued localised precautions, families may look to stay within the sanctuary of the resort for extended periods of their break. This paves the way for opportunities around new on-site amenities and family-based products and services, from golf lessons to playing experiences and everything between. Terre Blanche, nestled between Provence and the French Riviera, has put family at the heart of their product offering. While its location and surrounds make it a natural choice for families, its amenities, such as its 5-star kids club, and services, such as its bespoke excursions, sets it apart from competitors and puts the resort in a prime position to rebound strongly. Health advocates Whether it’s physical or mental, health has never been at the forefront of people’s minds more than it is now. The notion of self-care is no longer an abstract one, but a fundamental part of daily routines. Fortunately, golf’s evidenced health benefits have

Preparations for first Ryder Cup on Italian soil gather pace

22nd June 2021
With a spectacular new golf course open for play and a first tournament just round the corner, excitement is building at Marco Simone Golf & Country Club as it prepares for a drama-filled showpiece in an iconic city. When footage was recently released of Marco Simone Golf & Country Club’s newly-opened 18-hole course, the world sat up and took note. What will be the scene of the 2023 Ryder Cup in just over two years’ time looked magnificent. The culmination of 18 months of work by European Golf Design together with Tom Fazio II focused on creating a layout which will provide match play drama. The extensive renovation has created a masterpiece on the outskirts of Rome, maximising the natural rolling terrain to offer many vantage points for views not only of the on-course action but of the famous Eternal City in the distance. The course will not have to wait long before its first test of elite golf, with some of the world’s best players arriving to contest the Italian Open this September. It will be the second time Italy’s national Open heads to Marco Simone Golf & Country Club, following the 1994 staging when Argentinian Eduardo Romero triumphed. Lavinia Biagiotti Cigna, President of Marco Simone Golf & Country Club, said: “Hosting the 2023 Ryder Cup for us is not only a dream come true, but the beginning of a new journey. Our motto is ‘playing the future’ and we are committed to growing the next generation of golfers.” Of the forthcoming Italian Open, set to take place from 2-5 September, she added: “We are now ready to host champions and amateurs from all around the world.”
