Tourists tee off

CLUBS in the Illawarra, Shoalhaven and Southern Highlands have launched an innovative marketing website called Grand Pacific Golf to target golfing enthusiasts planning their next vacation.

The website, which is marketed at domestic and international tourists, is a collaboration between nine golf clubs: Wollongong, Port Kembla, The Grange, Mt Broughton, The Links Shell Cove, Kiama, Shoalhaven Heads, Nowra and Russell Vale.

The Links Shell Cove general manager Robby Stephenson said the website has received strong support from Illawarra-based organisations - something he is looking forward to continuing.

"Grand Pacific Golf is a tourist route that offers quality, accessible golf courses at affordable prices and was partly inspired by the successful Melbourne Sandbelt," he said.

"These regions have some of the most accessible golf clubs in NSW and it's fantastic to see the sport united for a common goal.

"We are fortunate in this area to have a vast amount of golf clubs that all offer something unique."

The website has support from key organisations including Golf Illawarra, Destination Wollongong, Tourism Shellharbour and Grand Pacific Drive.
