Golf Voyager has announced a partnership with Padraig Harrington that will see the three-time major golf champion become the company’s first brand ambassador.
Golf Voyager was launched in 2012 by founders Conor Galvin and Fintan Ward, with the sole purpose of providing customers the easiest way to book their golf holidays. The Limerick-based company provides a booking engine that allows golfers to put together personalised packages, and is the first of its kind to offer an entire golf holiday which includes tee time booking, hotels, and transport. Harrington, who was born in Dublin, will be used to promote the website on a global scale.
The online service currently only covers Spain, it is hoping to expand into Portugal, mainland Europe, the UK, and the Americas.
Harrington, who has won two Open Championships and the US PGA Championship, has played golf all over the world with the PGA Tour, and will be used as a key player in Golf Voyager’s development.
“We’re extremely excited to be partnering with a legend of the game such as Padraig and to have his backing of our online service means a lot to us,” said Conor Galvin, managing director at Golf Voyager. “We believe that we have built a tool that will significantly improve the experience for anyone looking to organise a golf holiday.”
Commenting on the deal, Harrington added: “I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world playing professional golf for over 20 years and I can appreciate how time-consuming it can be to arrange everything that goes into organising a golf trip.
“Golf Voyager offers golfers an easy way to arrange their holiday and I was surprised at how simple a process it was using their website.”
