New Website for Scottish Golf Tour Operators

The new SIGTOA website went live this morning in sync with the opening tee shot of Australia's Rod Pampling at The Open in St Andrews.

The new site is being developed in a couple of distinct phases and has been built to emphasise the benefits of using a specialist golf tour operator for trips to Scotland.

This week there are thousands visiting the Open utilising the services of tour ops and SIGTOA felt that the new site would give an opportunity to positively promote the role of a travel expert in building affordable packages that work. The first phase addresses this and will be followed by a strong B2B resource to support agents and overseas buyers. We hope you like Part One

Gourmet and Golf in Scotland

Your golf vacation to Scotland is, of course, based around playing some of the finest links and parkland golf in the world but if you can combine the trip with world class wining and dining why would you not?

SIGTOA members all put together itineraries that take into consideration the preferences of visitors not only on the course but off it as well. So if you fancy playing the best golf courses and following it up with top restaurants then we have a golf tour operator or two who can help you with that one.

Here's just one example from Morton Golf Holidays. You can visit the members' website pages to find out more.
