Recent years have seen a surge in golf tourism, with players travelling around the world to enjoy the best courses.
According to the International Association of Golfing Tour Operators (IAGTO), the industry is worth around US$20 billion and the trend is likely to continue for the next few years.
Australian golf companies are quickly realise the benefits this could bring to their business and the country's economy and therefore many have launched new projects to attract overseas golfers.
The Tourism Australia National and International Visitor Surveys for the year ending June 2013, show that there were 178,000 overseas golf tourists coming to the country in the 12 months.
Craig Kinross, managing director and chief executive of iseekgolf.com, explained his company has set up a new website to help inform both domestic and international players about the wide range of golfing holidays available.
He added: "We are very excited to leverage off our online golf community (boasting over one million page views per month) to make this move into golf tourism and focus on marketing regional golfing hotspots."
