The golf segment is the latest member of the TMR portfolio. Following the successful operation of Golf Resort Ostravice and Golf Resort Kaskáda, and cooperation with Golf Resort Olomouc as a partner facility, the TMR company has decided to make golf accessible to clients in Slovakia too. Golf Resort Skalica is the first complex that TMR started to cooperate with.
“As for us, it´s business cooperation that has proved successful in Olomouc and has a great potential to work in future. That´s why we have decided to develop cooperation also in Slovakia and made Golf Resort Skalica our partner resort on 18.8.2020. This means that members of our clubs will be able to play on the course, use all regular products and also buy memberships in the ongoing season. The TMR company wants to use the growing popularity of golf and make the potential of golf resorts accessible to members of the GOPASS client programme. So in addition to skiing and water park amusement at better prices, they can now play golf and save,” explained Jan Kastner, the general manager of the TMR golf segment.
