Glamping & Golf

Glamping & Golf

Not two words that you would often associate together…

But, we’re all talking about golf right now and the estimated 190,000 visitors to the north coast for the 148th Open Championship at Royal Portrush in 2019.

The question on many people’s lips – where are they all going to stay?

With stories circulating of families living in the area or holiday home owners being offered huge amounts of money to move out of their homes for the week of the Open.

We can be pretty sure that there is going to be an accommodation shortage in the local area.

You probably don’t think of golfers or even golfing fans going ‘glamping’, preferring their home comforts and luxuries.

This is where Intupod’s accommodation pod could help provide a solution to the predicted accommodation shortage.

Engineered to the highest of standards and using quality materials, our pods have been designed to create a luxury glamping experience.

Our aluminium structured accommodation pods measure 3.6m x 6.6m and have a birch plywood interior finish.

They are also wired with ample electrical sockets and attractive LED lighting.

With fully equipped washroom facilities including a full height shower and breakfast bar facilities, they can be furnished with zip link beds to provide double or twin accommodation.

Our pods will provide golfers with a hotel room experience.

If you own land near Royal Portrush – there is still time to consider adding pod accommodation and generating an income while sharing your space will golfing fans from all over the world.

The Open is expected to create a last legacy not just for Portrush and the surrounding area but also for golf tourism to Northern Ireland.

According to Tourism Northern Ireland, golf tourism is worth £40 million a year to Northern Ireland’s economy.

An increase of 44% in the last five years, representing one of the region’s fastest growing sectors.

So even if you don’t own land near to Royal Portrush but are close to any large golf course in Northern Ireland you too could capitalise on the Open wave.
