PGA Professionals’ Guide to Travel Web site launches on PGA.com

HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pa. — The PGA Professionals’ Guide to Travel Web site officially launched on Wednesday, January 16th in conjunction with the newly expanded PGA.com. The new travel site can be found on the PGA.com travel page (PGA.com/travel) or by going to Travel from the PGA.com home page. The effort is an alliance between PGA Magazine Publications & Marketing Group and PGA.com, both operating under licenses of The PGA of America.

PGA.com’s millions of visitors annually can now tap into a whole new golf travel resource, offering travel insight for golfers planning trips to get information from the people who know more about golf travel than anyone: PGA Professionals.

The site features new and exclusive travel content: from PGA Professionals and from PGA Magazine, as well as the latest in golf-related travel news from the world’s top resorts and golf destinations. It will be updated daily. Other sections of the site include PGA Itineraries — travel itineraries recommended by PGA Professionals, Resort Profiles, Destination Features, Women and Golf, Hidden Gems and much more.

“We are very excited to be able to offer visitors to PGA.com in-depth travel content that not only helps them decide where to go, but where to stay and what to pack,” said Jon Kropp, Turner Sports senior director of strategy and business development.

Studies show that the golf travel industry generates over $12 billion in revenue each year, and PGA Professionals are intimately involved.

“PGA Professionals play a critical role in influencing where people play and where they stay,” says PGA of America CEO Joe Steranka. “Through the PGA Professionals’ Guide to Travel, the influence of PGA Professionals will be considerably expanded.”

The power of the site will come from the content contributions of thousands of PGA Professionals who will now be able to deliver detailed travel information about their golf facilities, at no charge to their facilities, to golfers around the world.

“By allowing PGA Professionals to showcase their expertise, everyone will benefit, most of all, golfers who are seeking the local information about places to play from experts in the game,” said Rick Summers, CEO of PGA Magazine. The Web site was designed by PGA Magazine and built by PGA Magazine Web contractor Legendary Marketing.
