Leading Courses partners with TUI Sports

22 April 2022

Leading Courses is proud to announce a partnership with TUI Sports in the Benelux. Leading Courses is the leading tee time booking portal in Europe and helps travelling independent golfers to find, select and book their golf trips. TUI Sports will use the network and booking engine of Leading Courses to easily arrange tee times for golfers who book a golf trip via TUI.

Leading Courses has been helping travelling golfers for well over a decade and for the last few years has been offering direct and real-time connections with almost all golf courses in Southern Europe. Leading Courses focuses on golfers who want to plan and book everything online, but also understand that there are golfers who prefer to book a golf trip via a tour operator.

For the last month, golfers in The Netherlands have been able to see golf packages from Dutch Golf Tour Operator Pin High Golftravel. This integration is part of Leading Courses’ mission to become the go-to portal when golfing abroad. In due time Leading Courses will also announce partnerships with other leading golf tour operators in the United Kingdom, Sweden, France and Germany.

Exciting new partnership

The TUI Sports partnership will begin on a small scale, focusing on TUI hotels and on destinations where TUI offers charters with their own airline. In a later phase, long-haul destinations like the Caribbean, Africa, The Middle East and other hotels will be offered as well.

Ruben Meiland, the CEO of Leading Courses is very excited about this new partnership: “This partnership with TUI Sports solidifies our unique position in the European golf market. Leading Courses is the largest and most widely used golf platform to book tee times across the continent and beyond. We’re very excited to bring our years of knowledge and state of the art technology to fuel TUI’s exciting new golf proposition.”

Reinier Boss - Product manager Golf TUI Sports says: “There has been a big increase in the number of golfers over the last 2 years due to Covid-19. That made us decide to enter the Golf market. We have our own planes, hotels and transfer services in all destinations. The only part missing was green fees. Booking tee times can be time consuming, so we were looking for a reliable partner that offers an efficient way of working. Leading Courses can provide us with this service and also supports us to generate awareness in the golf market. We are very happy with this partnership.
