Scottsdale launches refreshed golf destination website

Scottsdale Golf photoThe Scottsdale Convention & Visitors Bureau continues to promote Scottsdale as “The World’s Finest Golf Destination” with a redesigned golf website.

A fresh look, responsive design and a new URL, ExperienceScottsdaleGolf.com, have refreshed the golf campaign promoting the destination to one of Scottsdale’s most valuable visitors — the golf visitor, according to a press release.

These visitors typically travel to Scottsdale with a group of three or four friends and spend an average of $1,800 per person during a trip, which is 50 percent more than the average Scottsdale visitor, the release states.

“We understand how important the golf market is to Scottsdale,” said Caroline Stoeckel, vice president of marketing for the Scottsdale bureau.

“The national golf trend is declining, but in Scottsdale it’s quite the opposite. That’s why we continue to invest in promoting golf to high-value visitors.”

Some of the sites features include:

• Courses — Visitors can search for and find the course of their dreams. Each course listing details price points, yardage, challenge and more.

• Packages — Deals and packages help golfers plan their Scottsdale experience.

• Brandel’s Blog – As the official golf ambassador for Scottsdale, Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee blogs about his personal golf experiences along with his thoughts on current golf happenings.

• Guide — The Scottsdale Golf Guide is free and available for download. It includes everything a visitor needs to know about “The World’s Finest Golf Destination,” as well as insider tips to make Scottsdale golf vacations memorable.

Additionally, the website includes a list of golf course rankings, articles about Scottsdale golf courses, golf resources, the history of Scottsdale golf and general Scottsdale travel information.

The golf campaign is in its third year, and is made possible in partnership with Communication Links.

The Scottsdale Independent is published monthly and mailed to 75,000 homes and businesses in Scottsdale.
