Release Date: 2013-07-23

LIMPOPO; LEGEND GOLF RESORT (ENTABENI) – Limpopo Tourism Agency (LTA) in partnership with National Department of Tourism and Limpopo Economic Development Environment and Tourism (LEDET) jointly hosted a Golf Tourism Seminar on 22 July 2013 at Legend Golf Resort. Present at the seminar also was Mr. Peter Walton, Chief Executive of International Association of Golf Tour Operators, a global trade organisation for the golf tourism industry. He said, “You have very wonderful golf course in South Africa and you must be very arrogant about them for you to create jobs and for social responsibility. Golf should be the prime purpose for travel. It is not just an amenity but a primary driver of travel.”

The main objective of hosting such a seminar was to unpack the potential of golf tourism as a niche product but to also develop ways of growing it further. There was a familiarization tour to showcase the rest of Limpopo Golf and Safari Route to golf media and tour operators from various parts of the country and beyond.
