Pádraig Harrington has signed a partnership deal with Limerick company Golf Voyager.

The company is an online golf-holiday booking engine that allows golfers to build their own holidays, including transport, hotels, courses and tee-times.

Golf Voyager was founded in 2012 by businessmen Conor Galvin and Fintan Ward with the aim of offering golfers the easiest way to book their golf holidays.

The Irish-based company offer a best price guarantee, with full coverage of Spain, including well known courses such as Valderrama, Torrequebrada, Real Sotogrande, Los Naranjos and PGA Catalunya.

They will be shortly expanding their reach to cover Portugal, mainland Europe, the UK and the Americas.

The multiple major winning golfer will take on an ambassador role for the company, promoting its offerings globally.

“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. In just a few clicks you can book your hotel, choose the courses you would like to play and get a real-time update on price,”Harrington said.

“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. We believe that we have built a tool that will significantly improve the experience for anyone looking to organise a golf holiday,” Conor Galvin, MD at Golf Voyager, said.

International Awards

Also this week Golf Voyager was announced as the winner of the ITB China Award in Shanghai.

As part of the competition the company had to describe how their product will impact the future of the travel industry. The jury described Golf Voyager as a ‘truly innovative company in the travel technology’.

“ITB China is the marketplace for China’s travel industry and will give us enormous exposure in the Asian market,” Galvin said.

“It will firmly position our company and our technology in the minds of the investor community and enable us to pitch for the level of investment we need to move our business to the next stage of our development strategy,” Galvin concluded.
