Turkey's rising status as a golf holiday hot spot has been underlined by a new survey of golf tour operators
Turkey's reputation as a golfing holiday hot-spot is on the rise after being named the fourth most-popular golf travel destination. The statistic was revealed in the Golf Travel Insights 2013 report, which found only Spain, Portugal and Scotland stand ahead of Turkey.
The survey, compiled by KPMG's Golf Advisory Practice, also found package price is one of the most important factors when it comes to choosing a golfing holiday.
More than half (54%) of golf tour operators surveyed said they had maintained the same price points for golf packages compared to the previous year. Golfers searching for a good deal will have some cash spare for
sports travel insurance to ensure they're covered for unforeseen circumstances.
Andrea Sartori, head of KPMG's Golf Advisory Practice, said: "What's interesting is that consumers are now saying price is the most important factor when choosing a golf holiday, although the quality of courses is still extremely important.
"In part, this is why we are seeing emerging destinations such as Turkey being able to position themselves effectively for the market - the quality of the golf courses is high and the packages represent good value for money."
More than 110 golf tour operators from 38 countries were polled on their results in 2012.
