Hainan plans to build a golf tourism co-marketing alliance
According to the 2013 Hainan golf tourism co-marketing meeting on July 11th, the Hainan golf tourism industry is planning to establish a co-marketing alliance to jointly promote golf tourism products in Hainan.
The chairman of the Provincial Trade Promotion Organization Cheng Zhongwen said that the Hainan tourism development committee, Hainan Trade Promotion Organization and Hainan golf tourism association should work together with golf courses and clubs as well as other tourism bodies to set up a united organization system to regulate the golf tourism market's operation and speed up the construction of supporting facilities and services to help promote the island's golf tourism products.
In order to build Hainan into a golf tourism destination, Hainan started issuing Hainan golf passports to domestic and international golfers this July. The holders can enjoy waived green fees and other preferential treatment at nearly 30 courses in Hainan from April 1st to October 31st of every year.
In recent years, Hainan has developed a variety of golf tourism products including golf marine tourism, golf hot-spring tourism and golf recreation tourism.
