Leading Courses is the largest golf course comparison website in Europe, offering thousands of instantly bookable golf courses within Europe and abroad. Leading Courses’ mission is to help golfers discover their desired golfing experience based on their skill level, location, wants and needs. With 15 years of experience in the golf travel industry, Leading Courses has become the trusted platform for golfers, golf courses and partners.

Providing golfers with a seamless end-to-end golf trip experience

Every month thousands of golfers plan their golf trips on Leadingcourses.com. After gathering information from hundreds of thousands of reviews written by fellow golfers they can book tee times on Leadingcourses.com for the golf courses they’ve selected to play.

Through a renewed special integration with Booking.com on Leading Courses, golfers  can now also easily find and book the most relevant places to stay near the golf courses they are planning to play, with access to more than 28 million accommodation listings on Booking.com, including more than 6.4 million listings in homes, apartments and other unique places to stay. By arranging their accommodation with Booking.com they’re guaranteed to get a great price and enjoy a seamless end-to-end golf trip experience, whether they’re staying at a holiday home with a view of the green or a 5-star resort.

Ruben Meiland, CEO of Leading Courses is very excited about the new partnership. “Data shows that the vast majority of our users book tee times abroad. Whether it’s Dutch golfers booking tee times in Spain or Swedish golfers playing in Portugal; we cater to golfers throughout Europe that have such a passion for the game that they travel to play the best courses. That’s why this partnership with Booking.com is so exciting. By leveraging forward-thinking technology from both ends, we’re able to provide our audience with relevant accommodations that meet their needs. And this is just the first step.”

Xaveer Fluitman, Director of Partnerships at Booking.com is similarly enthusiastic. "As people are starting to travel again, including to nurture their passions and hobbies, we want to make sure it's as easy and seamless as it possibly can be. We're pleased to be collaborating with Leading Courses to provide golfers with the unrivalled choice and value Booking.com is known for. Whether you prefer a great city apartment, a luxury hotel or something more unique, we’ve got a hole in one for every kind of golf trip.”

On a mission to become the go-to golf travel portal

The Booking.com integration aligns with Leading Courses’ mission to facilitate golfers from start to finish when booking their golf trips. In due time Leading Courses will announce partnerships with other leading (golf) tour operators in the United Kingdom, Sweden, France and Germany.
