The Travel section underlines The European Tour’s ethos of celebrating the game of golf and showcasing our diverse global talent and rich landscapes. The European Tour's innovative approach enables us to embrace the world, combining championships of tradition with new tournaments in the cities and countries of the future.
Host Countries – The European Tour will visit 25 countries across five continents in 2012, each highlighting the rich diversity of the Tour. The host countries range from those where golf has been played for centuries, such as Scotland, to emerging markets such as those in Eastern Europe and the Middle East.
Host Venues – The European Tour International Schedule comprises a minimum of 46 events, played over 49 different courses. Each Host Venue presents a unique test for the world’s best golfers as The European Tour travels around the world. The Host Venues range from links to parkland, from deserts to mountains and from some of the oldest and most revered courses to new championship venues designed to test the very best.
European Tour Destinations – European Tour Destinations are world-class venues within the European Tour Properties network, offering a comprehensive range of facilities to both their members and guests. Their identities are closely aligned to The European Tour, creating a unique partnership that benefits both parties. The London Club in England was the first European Tour Destination.
European Tour Courses – The European Tour Courses brand offers the opportunity for golf venues to benefit from a world-class brand and focused operational and commercial support. European Tour Courses are likely to evolve in those countries where The European Tour does not have a high-priority real-estate strategy and in key, emerging golf markets.
