The move will allow six sales team members to live and breathe one of the company’s most popular destinations, as experiencing the location will provide an even more knowledgeable service to be passed on to potential travellers.
Known already as the “YGT Six”, the small team will continue to work from sunnier climes throughout the week, while absorbing evening and weekend programmes of activity designed to become fully immersed within the product range and local culture.
Those “YGT Six” are: Jack Deasy, 24 and Ben Gardner, 28, both from Essex, Max Moor-Radford, 28, from Hertfordshire, Jonathan Squibb, 27, from Kent, and finally Joe Hicks, 27, and Craig Martin, 31, from Sussex.
João Fernandes, President of Algarve Tourism, said: “As a world-leading golf destination, the Algarve is delighted that Your Golf Travel has chosen us to further enhance the team’s knowledge of our unique fairways and venues.”
While in the area, the team will look to gain an intrinsic knowledge of the destination from a golf and leisure aspect, taking in the views from both on and off the golf course.
This will include staying, working and playing in the likes of Boavista Golf & Spa, Dom Pedro in Vilamoura, Castro Marim Golfe and Country Club, as well other golf venues in the region like Vale do Lobo, NAU resorts, Pestana resorts and Quinta do Lago.
Your Golf Travel co-founder, Andrew Harding, said: “As Your Golf Travel continues to embrace hybrid working, what better way for our Golf Travel Experts to truly experience one of our top destinations than to live and breathe it daily.
“From spending time with our hotel and golf partners to improving their game after work in the sunshine, this really is an opportunity of a lifetime for our team. We are incredibly excited to be supporting such an exciting project and we look forward to our team developing their knowledge of the Algarve as we constantly look at ways to improve our service to our customers."
