Welcome to your

New year of golf I hope this brochure finds you well at the end of what has been a challenging year for everyone, and a very stop-start one for golf! Despite the disruption, our sales and service teams helped almost 100,000 golfers to enjoy a golf break in 2020 and they have already rebooked the same number into this coming year. So, if you have a break in mind, I would recommend contacting us at the earliest opportunity to guarantee suitable tee times. We are also proud to have fully refunded any clients who no longer wished to travel in 2020, as well as completing an overhaul of both our website and branding – all largely whilst working from home!

This brochure follows on from our ‘new look’ website which is designed to be more inspirational than ever. Check it out to see all the fantastic up to date packages, offers and promotions that we have negotiated on your behalf. Throughout the past year, we have continued to focus on our core values of offering the best choice, at incredible value, with unparalleled levels of service and trust. We look forward to building on these further and providing all the flexibility you need, as we help you plan your 2021 golf break. Thank you for your continued support. Happy New Year!
