GolfStar signs strategic agreement with Costa Daurada Golf Association!

GolfStar signs a long-term cooperation agreement with the Costa Daurada Golf Association and now starts GolfStar Travel to increase the number of Swedish and Finnish golfers to this fantastic Spanish region south of Barcelona.

– Together with the Association, getting the opportunity to market and put this jewel of golf destination Costa Daurada on the golf map is fantastic and we are very proud to start this in-depth collaboration, begins Stefan Brikell, Market Director at GolfStar.

-Swedish and Finnish golfers are important markets for us and through the collaboration with GolfStar, Costa Daurada Golf Association members will now have the chance to market the region with everything we have to offer in terms of accommodation, golf courses, beaches, restaurants, wineries, culture and much more other towards GolfStar’s 50,000 Swedish and Finnish golf customers. We are convinced that this collaboration will be very successful and look forward to a long-term collaboration with GolfStar, says Jordi Hernandez, Director of the Costa Daurada Golf Association.

-We are kick-starting the collaboration and marketing of Costa Daurada by, among other things, arranging 7 competitions for our 50,000 members. Five of the competitions will be played on our courses around Stockholm and two competitions on our Finnish courses around Helsinki. The competitions will be held during the period May to September and the first competition will start on May 25 at GolfStar Viksberg. From each sub-competition, two teams will advance to the final which will be played on November 14 – 17, in Costa Daurada, says Stefan.

As part of this collaboration, we will now fully launch GolfStar Travel as an added value only for our members. This ”own travel agency” helps to book favorable ”Stay & Play” packages at our selected golf facilities and partners in the Costa Daurada. The packages can include accommodation, start times and other types of activities, such as restaurant visits and wine tastings, Stefan continues.

Golf is played on 6 golf courses. Partly at our own GolfStar Cambrils as well as at Gaudí Golf 18-hole and Panorámica Golf 18-hole and at the 45-hole facility Infinitum Golf (formerly Lumine). Accommodation will initially be at four selected hotels – Sol Port Cambrils Hotel, Monica Hotel, Instants Boutique Hotel and Mas Gallau Hotel, Stefan continues.

– The Costa Daurada region has so much to offer in terms of golf combined with a variety of other fantastic activities and I am convinced that GolfStar’s members will appreciate this collaboration not least because they now get even more, most golf for their money, concludes Stefan.
