SPORTS are in for a big boost in 2017, branded the Year of Sports by tourism planners.

Minister of Tourism Richard Sealy spoke of the tourism sporting thrust Monday while addressing the media on the state of the island’s tourism.

Golf is set to take on a higher profile in the island’s tourism marketing and Sealy made mention of a golf-around package that he indicated will afford golfers from key source markets the opportunity to play on three major local golf courses during their stay.

Business magnate Sir Charles Williams also spoke about the potential for golf to be a major source of tourism revenue since he said so many people were choosing Barbados as a holiday destination because of its growing reputation for having world-class golf courses. He was speaking last week at his Apes Hill Country Club. (GC)
