Longwood Holidays, which has seen golf sales up by 90% year-on-year, is offering two golf promotions in the Red Sea resorts of Sharm el Sheikh and Taba Heights.New for this month guests pre-booking their golf in Sharm el Sheikh will receive a basket of driving balls per green fee plus unlimited golf on the same day.
Accommodation is available at three five-star hotels; the Maritim Jolie Ville Golf Resort & Spa, the Maritim Jolie Ville Resort & Casino and Maritim Jolie Ville Royal Peninsula. Building on its success from last year the operator is continuing to offer its Tee Time in Taba deal which includes four rounds of 18 holes, unlimited practice, use of golf cart, flights from Gatwick and seven nights’ accommodation at the five-star Hyatt Regency Taba Heights.
The company’s agency sales manager, Alan Meadows, said: “Our Tee Time in Taba offer has proved so popular that we decided to offer something similar in Sharm el Sheikh. Both offers help to set us apart from other golf operators and at the same time really add value to a high end product.
“Golfers tend to not be as price led as sun seekers and are often driven by other factors such as course type and weather, which is why our golf product has seen such strong sales despite the recent economical crisis. To see how much the programme is growing year on year is a real testament to the product we offer and we hope to continue to expand our offering in 2010.”
Prices start from £69 for one round of 18 holes at Sharm el Sheikh’s championship golf course.
The Tee Time in Taba 5* golf offer is available from £625 for selected departures in January. For details call 020-8418 2514 or see www.longwoodholidays.co.uk
