For those of you who may not know us, we have been in the business of golf for over 17 years and during this period have diversified our offering to include event management and golf consultancy services in addition to our renowned golf travel business.
Marty Carr, Chief Executive of the Carr Group and Chairman of IGTOA (Ireland Golf Tour Operators Association), is a recognised authority on golf and maintains a hands-on role in managing the organisation. Marty’s father Joe Carr was Ireland’s, and one of the world’s, leading amateur golfers in the 40's, 50's and 60's. His 40 championship wins, three British Amateur victories and three US Masters appearances were only surpassed when he was elected captain of the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews in 1991 and later this year he is to be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
At the Carr Group, not only are we intent on providing a first-class service, we also consistently strive to expand our portfolio in terms of new market and product opportunities. Having recently undergone a period of rapid growth and restructuring, the Group is now ideally positioned to achieve our targets as part of an ambitious three year plan. In addition, and true to form, we are continually driven in our quest for operational excellence spanning every facet of our business.
Today, the Group operates four divisions: Carr Golf Travel, Carr Corporate Events, Online Golf Travel and Carr Golf Services as well as having an interest in Links Helicopters.
