SummaryLeadingcourses.com, a sort of a trip advisor for golf, is now available for all Scandinavians. The site was already available in Swedish, but is now also available in Danish and Norwegian.
Almost all European golfers reached
Leadingcourses.com focuses on the European golfer and helps them to play on the best golf courses, based on their location, experience (handicap level) and needs (i.e. is club rental or buggy rental available). Reviews play an ever increasing role in the decision-making process of golfers. The site, already available in 6 languages, has now added two additional languages, Danish and Norwegian. This implies that from now on 91% of all European golfers can access all necessary golf course information in their own language. It also implies they can write and read reviews in their mother tongue.
Own language very important
Leadingcourses.com wants to be available to everyone in Europe in his or her own mother tongue. Jeroen Korving, Managing Director of Leadingcourses.com explains: "People feel most at home in their own language even though many people speak and understand English. A review written in your own language is just easier to understand. And, a review written in English by for example a German doesn't feel right. It's artificial and unconsciously cultural aspects play an important role. For example, a German has a different frame of reference in terms of 'hospitality' than a Spaniard. We also want address that difference. "
Scandinavians avid golfers
Scandinavians are an interesting target group when it comes to golf. Even though the population is not very large, they are active golfers who travel a lot when it comes to golf.

First they travel to countries like the United Kingdom, Germany and the Netherlands and then they travel further south to more sunnier destinations like Spain, Portugal and Turkey.
