THE VALLEY, ANGUILLA — The Anguilla Tourist Board (ATB) is honing in on the golf market, a largely untapped travel segment for the destination.

With over 25 million golfers in the United States alone, and another 15.5 million participating in off-course golf activities at places like driving ranges and indoor golf simulators, the global golf tourism market size was valued at US$21.74 billion in 2021 and is projected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.6% from 2022 to 2030.

With this in mind, the ATB is highlighting its world-class golf facilities, including the Aurora Anguilla Resort & Golf Club, which was recently named Golf Resort of The Year by ‘Caribbean Journal.’ The resort boasts a signature Greg Norman-designed, 18-hole championship golf course as well as a nine-hole short course called Avalon Links featuring stunning views of Rendezvous Bay.

The driving range and short game areas have been significantly upgraded, and there’s also a high-tech golf academy, a teaching facility located near the clubhouse with two indoor hitting bays and state-of-the-art Trackman instructional equipment. The latest addition to Aurora’s golf experience is the brand new golf clubhouse opening at Avalon Links.
