VISIT SCOTLAND AND GOLF:
VisitScotland is the national tourism organisation which markets Scotland as a tourism and events destination across the world, gives support to the tourism industry and brings sustainable tourism growth to Scotland. Through the EventScotland team with its Events Directorate, it supports an annual portfolio of golf events in Scotland across the men’s ladies, seniors and developmental tours and promotes Scotland, the Home of Golf globally.
WHAT THE PARTNERSHIP MEANS:
Scotland is the Home of Golf, where the game began and where it is open and accessible to everyone who wants to pick up a golf club. We are delighted to be working in partnership with the Ladies European Tour to help to grow the ladies professional game and to encourage wider participation in the game among women and families. We have a long-term commitment to supporting ladies golf through our involvement in the Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open and the Ricoh Women’s British Open and we look forward to continuing this commitment through the staging of the inaugural European Golf Team Championships in 2018 and The Solheim Cup in 2019.
