Just returned from the golf break with 7 of my members to Antalaya park and I would like to thank you for organising the accommodation and golf for us. The whole trip was a success and I shall certainly book future golf trips with you. Cyril Jepson (Leen Valley Golf Club, UK) I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for a fantastic trip to Cyprus last week. It was my first time in Cyprus and thought the whole trip from start to finish was brilliant! The organisation and itinerary was superb and I enjoyed every minute! I think the price, service and choice of destinations is second to none and I will only be using and recommending Golfbreaks.com to my clients. Tony Johnstone (The Lodge Golf Club) The team was excellent in the planning of the trip. Everything ran extremely smoothly including all golf, transfers and hotel. Golfbreaks.com make it easy for PGA Professionals like myself to organise trips for friends and family. They boost not only their reputation each time, but also my own. Many thanks Golfbreaks.com.

Become a Golfbreaks.com agent Golfbreaks.com will create a banner and co-branded website for the Golf Pro to link from their own website. The Golf Pro will have to market the service to members and clients, and we will take care of the rest!

The average golf club has 500+ members, many of whom are avid golfers and like to take numerous golf breaks/ holidays every year. If a Golf Pro teams up with Golfbreaks.com, they will be able to offer golf holidays to members and capture their business.

The Golf Pro will receive 5% commission on all sales made through their site.

What did the Pro say? Having a Golfbreaks.com link on our website has been a great window for both members and visitors to view all the latest offers. I have been amazed at how many clicks the link has received. Steve Cookson (Bletchingley Golf Club) I had great service with my booking when looking for the right venue to coach at. It fitted what was needed. Thank you for your help, I passed on your details to another group that will contact you regarding a trip. Golfbreaks.com found the right venue for me to offer coaching for the amateur golfer. Andrew Coleman (Head PGA Professional, Tsleevo Golf & Polo Club, Russia)
