So it feels great to be launching the #CheckInToGolf campaign today, allowing everyone to celebrate and share their favourite golfing experiences, vistas and hidden gems from around the globe.
"I can’t wait to see where in the world has the most ‘Check-Ins’ but I’m hopeful that my home country is very well represented - so come on, Check-In for me! Turkey is also a really inspirational destination to visit and play golf and I’m massively looking forward to playing in the Turkish Airlines Open later this month.”

Ali Genc, Vice President Media Relations, from Turkish Airlines said, “As the airline that flies to the most countries than any other, we’re excited to be launching a campaign that celebrates the amazing golf destinations around the world.
