According to a press release, the new golf offering “will grant its members access to some of the most private courses, tournaments, golf experiences, and destinations.”
Jon Rahm is officially unveiled as a VistaJet Program Member and Brand Ambassador as part of the announcement.
Rahm finished fifth last year at the 2021 Masters Tournament. He won the 2021 U.S. Open held at Torrey Pines South Course. This year he’s had four top 10 finishes in nine events.
Featured VistaJet golf destinations include Coworth Park, outside London, Fiji’s Laucala Private Island, and Mandarin Oriental, Canouan, in the Grenadines.
Also included is The Club at Castiglion del Bosco, Tuscany, featuring the only Continental European designed course by Tom Weiskopf.
As we reported in January, Rahm is VistaJet’s second high-profile golfing convert.
Rahm said, “After flying VistaJet’s Global 7500, it’s hard to fly anything else — nothing else is comparable, to be honest. I felt like I had a house in the air — I slept a solid eight hours easily. It was the only time I’ve ever flown over the Atlantic with such a big-time zone change and never had any jet lag.”
Speaking of the Program, VistaJet’s version of a jet card, Rahm said, “Fractional simply doesn’t offer this level of flexibility.”
Golf legend Phil Mickelson who had previously been highlighted by VistaJet is not part of today’s announcement.
The three-time Masters winner has been under fire after controversial statements and his involvement with a proposed Saudi-backed golf league. He is not playing in Augusta this year.
Golf Digest reported KMPG, Calloway, and Amstel had all ended or paused sponsorship relationships with Mickelson.
A VistaJet spokesperson confirms Mickelson remains a customer of the luxury jet service but declined further comment.
