“Slovenia has been picked as the host of the 2018 International Golf Travel Market (IGTM), the pre-eminent annual event for the golf travel industry in the world attended by around 1,200 participants every year. The forum puts Slovenia among the top golf destinations in Europe, the Slovenian Tourism Board (STO) said.

‘We’re extremely proud to be able to show our destination to the world golf travel industry, as many have not visited yet. We want Slovenia to be included in the offer of global golf tour operators as a golf destination,’ said the head of the Golf Tourism Association (GIZ Golf), Ziga Osterc.

Slovenia has proven once again it can compete with top golf destinations such as Spain, Portugal and Turkey, he added.

‘While all golf courses in the world are beautiful, ours, ranging from Alpine valleys, Pannonian plains and vineyards to the exceptional natural beauty of Lipica, are something special,’ stressed Economy Ministry State Secretary Eva Stravs Podlogar as Ljubljana was announced as the host in Cannes on Tuesday.” (Slovenia Times)
