Helping golfing tourists book local accommodation

IN THE next few months Montrose Golf Links will be developing a new website and online booking system.

Part of this involves having links to all accommodation providers in the Montrose area.

In order to have as up to date a list as possible, all boarding houses, hotels, etc., are asked to contact Claire Penman, Montrose Golf Links company secretary, on 01674 672932 or by e-mail: so that they can be included in the list and be on the new web site.

Councillor David May, who is chairing a group on marketing the course which has initiated the website and online booking system, commented: “As increasingly visitors book their holidays and golf packages online, we are keen to have a website which contains links to as comprehensive a list of accommodation providers as possible. Therefore we are calling on them to contact our company secretary as soon as possible.”

Alan Crow, chairman of Montrose Golf Links, added: “We will be celebrating our 450th year as a course next year, so I hope that all hotels and guest houses in the Montrose area will contact us as this should also be advantageous to them as this should provide them with an opportunity to get more business.”
