The Anguilla Tourist Board (ATB) is targeting the expansive golf market, a largely untapped and highly lucrative segment of the travel industry, for Anguilla. There are over 25 million ardent golfers in the US alone, and another 15.5 million participate exclusively in off-course golf activities at places like driving ranges, indoor golf simulators, or golf entertainment venues like Topgolf and Drive Shack. The global golf tourism market size was valued at USD 21.74 billion in 2021 and is projected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.6% from 2022 to 2030.
Anguilla possesses exceptional golf facilities. The Aurora Anguilla Resort & Golf Club was just named Golf Resort of The Year by the leading Caribbean publication Caribbean Journal, a recognition of its status as one of the finest golf facilities in the Caribbean. The resort boasts a signature, Greg Norman designed 18-hole championship golf course and a 9-hole short course, Avalon Links, with stunning views of Rendezvous Bay. The driving range and short game areas have been significantly upgraded, and there is 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.
The Aurora Anguilla Resort & Golf Club also offers charter service flights direct to the island from the Westchester County Airport (HPN). The Aurora Charter Air Service will operate from mid-December through April 2024, and is available for both Aurora guests and non-hotel guests.
