Stena Line OPENS Invitation to British Golfers

Press Release   •   Dec 15, 2015 12:18 GMT

Leading ferry company Stena Line is swapping the gangway for the fairway in 2016 with its sponsorship of three prestigious open golf events in Ireland. Stena Line has joined forces with golf holiday specialists Club Choice Ireland to present a Seniors Open, a Ladies Classic and a Mixed Pairs event at some of Ireland’s leading golf resorts.

Club Choice Ireland are experts in creating tailor-made golf breaks to the east and south east of Ireland and with Stena Line operating daily trips from Holyhead to Dublin Port, Fishguard to Rosslare and Cairnryan to Belfast, the short journey across the Irish Sea provides just enough time to work out the best course strategy for each location.

Ian Baillie, Stena Line’s Key Account and Product Sales Manager, UK & Ireland, said: “Joining with Club Choice Ireland provides Stena Line with access to some of Ireland’s leading golf resorts and being able to sponsor and support a series of events, particularly those for women and older players sits well with our customer base.

“Not only that but players have the added benefit of being able to fill the car with their own golf clubs and equipment with no additional baggage charges, an important consideration especially for travelling groups.”

Tiernan Byrne, Managing Director of Club Choice Ireland, said: “We have been developing our relationship with Stena Line over a number of years and I’m delighted they are increasing their support of golf tourism. They have played a crucial role in helping us grow the number of golfers travelling from the UK to Ireland and I’m delighted that we can build on our great partnership and that they have ‘come on board’, pardon the pun, as sponsors for our new program of 2016 golf events!

“These new events are focused on showcasing different regions and venues of the east and south east of Ireland as truly great golfing destinations, which they are. The ultimate aim is to have our participants travelling home having enjoyed some great fun, great golf and looking forward to coming back again and again.“

The first event in the series is the Stena Line Senior Mixed Pairs, April 10 – 13, hosted by Knightsbrook Hotel Spa and Golf Resort and play will take place on the Royal Tara, Rathcore and Knightsbrook courses. The package includes three nights B&B accommodation, three rounds of golf, presentation dinner and Stena Line ferry travel - £300pps, based on two sharing.

Next is the Stena Line Seniors Open, May 22 – 26, staying at the 4 star, Hotel Kilkenny, playing Castlecomer, Gowran and Kilkenny courses. Package includes four night’s accommodation, three rounds of golf, horse racing evening at Gowran Park with coach transfers, and Stena Line ferry travel - £285pps, based on four travelling per car.
