Thank you for this trip!
The Fancourt Hotel, Cape Provinces, South Africa
HN, Finland (December 2016)
Everything went very smoothly thank you. A memorable trip. I’ll certainly be using your company again and will have no problem recommending you to friends in the future.
Hotel H10 Andalucia Plaza, Costa del Sol, Spain
GF (Lincoln), November 2016
We are all safely back to snowy Finland and already missing the sun. Thank you for all the arrangements - we have no complaints. Everything was perfect and worked like clockwork. We will be in touch when organising our next trip.
Aphrodite Hills Residences, South Cyprus
VK, Finland (November 2016)
We have returned from a most delightful golf vacation in Portugal.
Your company did a fantastic job in booking the arrangements (golf, van and hotels).
We could not have been more pleased with the accommodations and your assistance in obtaining them!
Your connections saved us a lot of money as well! (Had we tried to book things ourselves)…
Various Hotels in Portugal
RB, USA (November 2016)
I just wanted to thank you for arranging our golf trip.
Everything went great and the weather you supplied for us was tremendous.
It was between 23 and 27 degrees every day we were there. The hotel was first class and rooms clean and comfortable. The breakfast at the hotel was delicious and any amount you wanted to eat.
No complaints at all.
The courses although difficult were excellent and tested every bit of your game. Torrequebrada was a superb golf course and I can highly recommend it to anyone wishing to go to this part of Spain to play.
We were made to feel most welcome at all the golf courses and were given a complimentary bottle of water to quench our thirsts which was a nice touch.
I must say Simply-Shuttles were excellent also and their drivers really pleasant and helpful. They were always early to pick up and never in a rush or trying to rush you either. Just a great holiday all thanks to you. Thank you and all at Golf Escapes for everything. If I do decide to arrange another golf trip you will be the first person I will call. Thanks once again. Writing this it’s hard to believe the trip is over. I wish I was still there.
Vik Gran Hotel Costa del Sol
DJ, Bangor (October 2016)
Just a quick note to say thank you for our recent golf trip.
Everything went smoothly without a hitch, we found the hotel excellent and exceeded our expectations the quality and choice of food we thought was the equal of many top international hotels.
We feel we can’t praise all the hotel staff enough from the director, reception staff, chef, maître de, waitresses, cleaners etc. for making the golf break such a success.
Elba Palace Golf & Vital Hotel, Fuerteventura
LS, Thornaby (October 2016)

SW, Norfolk (October 2016)
The hotel was very good, the room and the food was excellent.

The courses were very well selected as they were well suited to my level of golf.
Also, I never had to show my handicap certificate.
Sentido Zeynep Golf & Spa, Belek
RB, Bracknell (October 2016)
We all had a great time in Portugal, organisation was spot on, thank you all.
We are already vaguely looking for somewhere similar for next year (possibly also in April/May as well).
The beauty of Penina is we don't need to shuttle off site.
We also would like early tee times, as that allows for exploring the local area once the golf is over.
Penina Hotel & Golf Resort, Algarve
BR, London (October 2016)
We have just returned from probably our best tour to date (this was our 21st consecutive year on tour) the weather was fantastic, the courses in great shape, our tournament was great it all went down to the last day with some brilliant scores along the way. The Real Bellavista Hotel was great for what we required, with helpful friendly staff.
Our last few tour organisers have booked the tour through Golf Escapes and I am sure this is why our tours are always improving, you are a great team who certainly looked after me well when I organised this trip, thank you to all at Golf Escapes, I am ready to pass on all your details when our new leader steps forward to organise the next instalment of our golf tour lives!

Exceptional courtesy in Isla Canela Golf and food was great.
Vila Gale Tavira, Algarve
IM, Scotland (October 2016)

Palmasol, Costa del Sol
MR, Blackpool (October 2016)
We had a great time over the weekend with great courses, good hotel in a lovely setting, beautiful old fishing town with great restaurants and friendly people.
We met and had a chat with Jon in the hotel bar and made a point of telling him of our appreciation of all your efforts in arranging our holiday.
Finally our heartfelt thanks to Eusebio Lima for not only being our transfer driver but also acting as our unofficial tour guide, even giving a tour around Lisbon and supplying refreshments between airport and hotel and to and from the golf courses.
Thanks again to all at Golf Escapes and if I arrange another golfing break I shall certainly be contacting you again.
Sesimbra Hotel & Spa, Lisbon

Both Mandy and I have been very impressed at your attention to detail, understanding the importance of knowing the availability and time of tee-times, all prior to making the final booking. This element has been sadly lacking elsewhere with other operators. I have also yet to come across someone as enthusiastic, willing, efficient and knowledgeable as Nick.

Just played Ribagolfe 1, wonderful, just like Aroeira I and II and Quinta do Peru, and we love Alcochete - real Portugal just outside Lisbon. All in all a fantastic package.
The Obidos package was just as good, in fact it was so good we are buying an apartment on Praia del Rey. Now we are looking forward to our Cascais based package.
Thanks to you all at Golf Escapes.

Just a few lines to thank you and Golf escapes for the organising and hard work you have put in to make this our best tour in the ten years our society has been in existence.
All sixteen of us were amazed by the clockwork precision of the planned itinery. From the superb minibuses of Simply Shuttles, to the magnificent three courses at La Cala, not to mention the all inclusive facilities at Vik Gran Hotel in Mijas.
Once again a big thank you from sixteen extremely happy golfers who all plan to use Golf escapes for our next trip.

BW, Merseyside (June 2016)
Just got back from Ireland. Accommodation excellent, friendly, clean, food very good.
Would recommend it to anyone. Location perfect especially as both Irish sides were playing in Euro 2016, atmosphere fantastic.
Not much I can say about courses, they were all first class and it confirms my view that Ireland is the best place to play quality and varied courses.

JC, East Sussex (June 2016)
Thanks very much for everything. As you know we usually go to turkey and I had forgotten how much I missed the non-all-inclusive option. Hotel was great and couldn't do enough for us, the courses were great.
Vilamoura itself as you know us a great place for restaurants and socialising so that was fab, transport to and from courses was brilliant.
Thanks very much!

Thanks to you and Kim for your valuable advice and support that made our golf break to Girona so successful this year. The hotel was excellent and well situated and reception staff most helpful with restaurant bookings and flight boarding passes. Transfers; Jescalbus were first class in terms of punctuality, vehicle presentation and driver attitude. Highly recommended. The courses – PGA Catalunya Stadium and PGA Catalunya Tour & Emporda were outstanding and challenging too! Transfer timings etc were spot on.
Well done once again.
Hotel Ciutat de Girona, Girona,
RG, Radlett (June 2016)
Eight of us once again took advantage of a great deal offered by the team at Golf Escapes and had a fantastic break in La Manga golf resort. The offer we got and the level of personal service we got from all at Golf Escapes was nothing less than excellent.
From start to finish everything was perfect. We decided to trade up from Las Lomas village to the hotel Principe Filipe and were not disappointed. We were welcomed warmly by the team there who had everything ready for us. They booked us in quickly and had the golf vouchers ready for collection. The hotel itself is very good indeed. The rooms are well appointed with everything you need, views that would cost extra at most resorts, and the bars were very well staffed. Breakfast was included and was what you would expect from such a good class hotel. The restaurant staff were on hand to serve your every need and the selection was fantastic. The pool was great with pool towels provided and plenty of sun lounges. The resort has everything you need, supermarkets, bars and restaurants all nearby, we never once had to use the free minibus. We can all recommend the Asian restaurant especially as the food was the best Asian food most of us had eaten, I can personally recommend the Nasi Goreng.
The golf reception and caddy staff were equally attentive and the courses were challenging and enjoyable for us all despite our differences in standard. We could fault nothing.
We all agree that we will be back next year, we were considering dates even before we left.
PS, I received the shirt and golf balls ok thanks.
La Manga Club Principe Felipe, Murcia
MM, Dorset (June 2016)
We had a fantastic holiday in El Rompido. Venue first class. Golf courses were of a high standard and the food was first rate as well. The hotel staff were very much a class act all round. We had increased this year from 12 people to 16. I cannot thank the hotel enough as the service was excellent.

AW, London (May 2016)
Another fantastic 4 day golf trip, this time to El Rompido in Spain and Monte Rei in Portugal. Expertly arranged as always by Nick. Golf courses at El Rompido are an excellent challenge off the back tees. However, Monte Rei is a must play course for any golfer. I've been playing for 30 years and it is in the top 3 I've ever played. Spectacular, challenging and awesome. First class service from the staff and an all-round brilliant experience. Thanks Nick and the team. Looking forward to our May 2016 trip!

Just returned from Spain after 6 rounds in 7 days, stayed at Mac Puerto Marina in Benalmadena, half board, very nice food and service. Golf transfers were by simply shuttles which were excellent and on time for us every time. We played Los Flamingos - excellent condition, La Cala - excellent condition, Alferini - exclusively excellent condition, El Chaparral - average but lovely setting, Marbella Club - nice, Torrequebrada - brilliant condition. Our Flight with Jet2 was on time and had unbelievable amount of leg room, I am over six feet tall... This was all for a group of 12 golfers, so thankyou Golf Escapes and your team, wonderful organisation - we have booked next year already.

Tivoli Lagos, Algarve
RW, Hampshire (May 2016)
The trip went very well, all the four courses were terrific if the golf played at times was not the best.
Best restaurant was Casa Mateus in Sesimbra, number 1 on Trip Advisor and best value Portuguese restaurant. There was also Virgilinda where the owner could not do enough for you.
Eusebio at Eagle Tours, taking us to Troia, was great providing a lot of information plus sparkling wine on the ferry and taking a lot of photographs which he has emailed me since our return.

We would like to thank you, and all at Golf Escapes. The holiday went without any hitches at all, in fact we were upgraded at Castro Marim to 2 x 3 three bedroom villas. They were very nice.
It helped as well that the weather was perfect while we were there, so thanks if you had a hand in that as well! All the golf courses that you booked were ready for us and could not have been more helpful.
Once again many thanks, and shall certainly be in contact when it is time to go again.
Castro Marim Golf Resort, Algarve
JC, West sussex (May 2016)
We had a wonderful holiday. Weather, surroundings (Atalaya golf courses with the Sierra Blanca backdrop made us feel at home in Scotland - on a very sunny day of course) and hotel all lived up to our expectations.
Thanks for your help

KS, Tyne & Wear (May 2016)
I would like to pass my huge thanks (and the other 15 from my group) to you and your team, for organising a faultless trip to Spain, from the Hotel (Holiday World Polynesia), Courses and the transfers, which all ran like clockwork. Santana was yet again in great condition and with fantastic hospitality in the 19th , La Cala (Asia) was a true test of target golf, and Santa Maria and Marbella GCC were just as impressive. Word is getting out and looks like the society numbers will be growing again next year. Such a great deal, we will be in contact very soon.
Holiday Polynesia Hotel, Costa del Sol
AK, Bedfordshire (April 2016)
I just wanted to say that we have had a lovely time in Vidago. It's a beautiful hotel with the feel of 'Downton Abbey'. And the golf course is challenging and interesting enough. The last few holes are very steep and hilly, tough to walk but beautiful.
Vidago Palace, Porto, Portugal
CY, Spain (April 2016)
We would like to thank you for the excellent organisation of our golf trip. All tee times and buggies were ready and well prepared and we would highly recommend the Almyra hotel for its excellent situation, meals and courtesy of the staff. We hope to be able to use your services again.
Thanos Almyra Hotel, South Cyprus
ST, Helensbay (April 2016)
I am sure I speak for David as well but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Cala. The organisation and help that you and your colleagues gave us all the way through was excellent. We feel we got very good value for money, except perhaps for the loss of so many golf balls! I don't think we realised just how brutal the Asia and America courses are!
All aspects of the organisation were great from easy collection of golf clubs (good recommendation), car hire, the resort itself (excellent value in taking the a la carte option!), the courses, the staff both at the hotel and at the courses and so it goes on.
We will certainly look to using your company for our next venture.
La Cala Golf Resort, Costa del Sol
DG, Dorset (April 2016)
Just a quick line to say, thanks to you and the team. Everything went super well, & the courses & hotel were spot on, as was the weather. It’s certainly a location we will revisit in the future.

That's us all back from another fantastic holiday, thanks to you and your team for delivering a great holiday for our team, every thing was spot on, hotel, golf, and thanks to Golf & Wellness for a great service provided to us, special thanks to Belgin Engin for looking after us this year again.
Look forward to booking again next year.
Voyage Belek Golf & Spa, Belek
DM, Kincardineshire (April 2016)
The whole trip was fantastic, and your organisation of the tee times and all transfers worked like clockwork. In Cascais there are numerous restaurants within just yards of the hotel and many open into the early hours. We had a nice sunny dry day on Sunday playing Quinta da Marina, which seemed in a quick vote to be the favourite of the group. Green tees and fairways were immaculate and staff very helpful.
Estoril was probably second and in very good condition. Aroeira II was in good condition and was tree lined and maybe a somewhat difficult test for some of our group.
We are looking at golf in Majorca next year, and I will be in touch soon.
Many thanks again to you and your staff.
Hotel Baia, Lisbon
IR, Harlow (April 2016)
We had a thoroughly enjoyable trip – everything went smoothly and I look forward to booking up next year’s holiday.

MS, London (April 2016)
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and all the team at Golf Escapes. The service you provided prior to the trip was amazing, always ensuring that I was on track with all the arrangements and paper work. The hotel you had chosen was outstanding from the friendliness of the staff to the outstanding food and the facilities were second to none. All the golf courses you selected were first class and the arrangements were all sorted on arrival. There was never any hassle, we walked in and handed over the vouchers and straight onto the course without any hassle. And finally a special mention to simply shuttles, they were always on time, immaculately turned out, the vehicles were clean and polished and the staff very polite. I will look forward to using your service again next year and would happily recommend you to other people.
Holiday Polynesia Hotel, Costa del Sol
AH, County Durham (April 2016)
We had a very good week with everything. The transfers worked out very well and the hotel was excellent. The Lykia Links course was in good shape, and the Pines course was also nice. Overall I am very pleased with our booking with you and I will recommend you to all my friends. In September/October we are going to travel to the USA and play golf. I will you contact you for some resort suggestions in Florida/Arizona/LA.
Lykia World & Links Golf Antalya, Belek

Thank you for everything. The resort was fantastic. The accommodation was excellent and the staff were outstanding. All things considered we had a great time and will certainly look to use your services in the future.

Having a wonderful time at the Dona Filipa and just about to play our 4th round on the wonderful San Lorenzo in gorgeous sunshine.

MB, Manchester (April 2016)
Thanks and we really enjoyed our first golfing break in Portugal, we will definitely be back to you to plan our next golfing break but not sure when yet. The whole set up was brilliant.
Will be in touch.
Vila Gale Marina, Algarve
GM, Aberdeenshire, (April 2016)
All went very well thanks, Hotel (Crowne Plaza Vilamoura) was good & the transfers were all problem free. Courses were in excellent condition, particularly considering the amount of use that they get. Our personal favourite was Millennium.
Not sure what’s happening next year, but we are bound to come to you – one of my friends has just been to Dubai & used you for that trip too.
Thanks for your work in getting all the arrangements lined-up.
Crowne Plaza Vilamoura, Algarve
SD, West Sussex (April 2016)
The holiday was great, the Sheraton hotel was superb, everyone was really friendly and helpful, the food was good and the golf courses were also good. The old course at Salobre is a more traditional course with some very interesting holes, the new course is very quirky and you need to be prepared to lose a few balls! But we really enjoyed both and I would definitely recommend both the hotel and the golf. Thank you so much for your help with this, and I would definitely come back to you for help with any other holiday like this.
Sheraton Gran Canaria Salobre Golf Resort, Gran Canaria
SG, Feering (March 2016)
Thank you for our golf holiday. The golf of Quinta da Marinha is beautiful. We had a look on the golf nearby, The Oitavos is very good as well. We recommended your website to our friends and hope to go again elsewhere next month.
Quinta da Marinha, Lisbon
HE, France (March 2016)
We all had a great time, the Isla Canela hotel and course are brilliant.
We are all wanting to make plans for next year already.
Isla Canela Golf, Costa de la Luz Huelva
TT, Isle of Man (March 2016)
Just back from a great trip to the Real Bellavista that was organised brilliantly by yourselves. Please say a big thank you to the drivers who were very efficient, courteous and always on time. The staff in the hotel were fantastic and the rooms on the top floor were worth the return. The food was very good and different every night.
The golf courses and staff were excellent. Thank you for all your help. Looking forward to some good deals next year and booking with Golf Escapes.
AL, Old Malden (March 2016)
It was really enjoyable thanks. Sheraton Salobre was very good: nice rooms; excellent staff; good mix of restaurants; nice outside areas. Salobre Old was a nice holiday golf layout with some interesting holes. It was sensible off the ladies tees which made for good competition for a mixed group. Anfi Tauro was an excellent course in great nick. We all really enjoyed that. Weather was ideal for golf. Only needed jumpers in the evening and played golf in shorts.
Thanks for the help picking and arranging.
RC, Reading (March 2016)
We had an amazing time at Morgado Golf & Country Club, and loved both the courses. The staff were so helpful and friendly. We would be grateful if you could let us know when or if they have any special offers.
Thanks once again for a lovely holiday.
SS, Guernsey (March 2016)
Portugal was great. Generally I think everybody had a great time and some even played half decent golf somewhere along the line. Have to mention the transfers. We had the same driver for all 3 trips and he was superb – punctual, friendly, flexible and willing to go that little bit further (like stopping at supermarkets for water, cash points etc) to make the trip perfect. Stick with that company would be my advice. Sadly I didn’t get his details but if there is any way you could find them out then we would request/recommend him in a heartbeat.
Already planning for next year!
Thanks for all your assistance
RF, Surrey (March 2016)
We got back yesterday afternoon from our Scottsdale golf holiday. I have been on more golf trips than i can remember, to all parts of the world. Many many times as the lead organiser. My experience with Golf Escapes has been excellent. Very efficient, all the paperwork was spot on, everything went like clockwork. Scottsdale Old town is brilliant as a location. You can walk to all the local bars and restaurants. The Hyatt House Hotel was perfect for golfers, excellent location, staff friendly and accommodating. The courses we played were great, with the exceptiom possibly of the Wildfire at Desert Rige. We Ko Pa was outstanding!
IT, Bucks (March 2016)
My wife and I have just returned from a very welcome 7 day break at the Playa Meloneras Palace in Gran Canaria. We had a fantastic week in an excellent hotel and four days golf on the Meloneras and Maspalomas courses. Travel to and fro was faultless, all-in-all a very highly recommended venue though I might take my Driver in my half set next time!
MB, Hook (March 2016)
Just back from another well organised holiday. An 8 day, 6 round holiday at Almerimar. Great hotel and good course for the four of us. Been going for about five years now, be going again next year.
Rev MB, Swindon (March 2016)
Many thanks for all your assistance re our holiday. We returned yesterday and had a wonderful time. The Sheraton Grand Salobre hotel was superb and the courses were great. All the staff were very welcoming. We would definitely recommend the resort. Will be booking something for September shortly so will be in touch for quotes.
JL, Ashford (February 2016)
Our group of 24 has just returned from Belek; this was our fourth stay and won’t be our last. Despite some security concerns from some of the group (and others who decided not to go) the standard is as good as ever, if not better than previous visits. The Sueno hotel was great, staff friendly and the golf courses in excellent condition. Best of all, because of the “situation”, the courses were the quietest they’ve been and the service and reception we received from the locals was superb. Security is an obvious concern in the current world we live but I have no hesitations in recommending Belek. The current value is beyond compare, and the service is better than ever.
SA, Royston (February 2016)
We had a wonderful time and wish to thank you for arranging our trip. The Hotel was first class, room lovely with nice view, food fantastic. Would recommend Hotel as it was in the perfect position for everything and everywhere and right on the beach. Our pickups were on time, perfect seating on the plane and a lovely surprise to have priority Boarding. I cannot thank you enough. Of course, we will be booking with you again, we wouldn't use any one else when you’re the best. Our sincere thanks to everyone at Golf Escapes.
JJ, Rhyl (February 2016)
The Tecina Hotel was superb, beautiful views, food great and overall first class. The Golf Course was perhaps the most beautiful we have ever played, a unique design that blends well with the landscape, fabulous views of the sea and Tenerife and very playable.
Overall a great holiday and thank you.
AT, Harpendon (January 2016)
Thank you for arranging a brilliant holiday. The golf and wellness transport guys were amazing especially Ahmed who collected us when we arrived and gave us so much info.
The Sueno was fab. We did wonder down to the Sueno Deluxe. Wow what a place. The golf courses were fantastic, will definitely recommend your company to our friends.
Thank you once again
RM, Bristol (January 2016)
We had a great time at hotel Jardin Tecina in La Gomera, made the 12.00pm ferry with plenty of time in hand.
Hotel gave use an upgrade to comfort room. My golf not so good, but once we understood the greens my husband played to his handicap of 13. Looking forward to our next trip.
JC, Ludlow (December 2015)
I am not a Facebook user but just wanted to let you know that everything went very well. The Tikida Palace was a great recommendation and the courses were excellent if pretty demanding!
RM, London (November 2015)
Really enjoyed our holiday from start to finish. The hotel was excellent and our room had a sea view and on a high floor just what we requested. The golf was also excellent, all the bookings were spot on and they even put a label with our surname on a buggy to reserve it as the demand for buggies seemed high. We could not have asked for better weather, we just wished we had booked two more rounds of golf but there is always a next time. Thank you for all your help.
JF, Somerset (November 2015)
Returned yesterday from our week at El Rompido. Just wanted to say thank you to you and your team for providing us with a memorable trip. All arrangements and details were spot on. No hassle, no worries. Furthermore, our week was blessed with superb weather as an added bonus. I will be in touch again with plans for trips in May and November next year. Thanks again and best regards.
DL, Cumbria (November 2015)
Golf trip to Portugal went perfect. You arranged everything very well and it all went smoothly. Car hire particularly good. The courses were well chosen and all kept well. We will be contacting you in the future for our next trip.
SW, Stevenage (November 2015)
Thanks for your email and thanks for arranging everything for us in a very professional manner. Everything went according to plan and expectations apart from things you can do absolutely nothing about i.e. our golf! And a bit of unsettled weather. However we did enjoy our week and we will certainly be looking at Golf Escapes when we plan our future holidays.
AS, Preston (November 2015)
We had a great time - thank you and as always, we will come back to you for our next golf holiday abroad next year. As always, everything went like clockwork with absolutely no hitches at all.
Thank you again.
AD, Edinburgh (November 2015)
The overall standard of our accommodation, food etc was very good. All the boys had a great time and enjoyed the hotel, the staff were friendly and looked after us very well. I must say the help and back up we received to sort things out from your team was nothing short of excellent! When I contacted your office I forgot initially about the time difference, nevertheless Jon was right on the ball and rearranged our games at Santana, called me back and confirmed via email all within around 15 mins. Our guys were well impressed with the effort and promptness of the response. All of the scheduling you put together for us was spot on. The transfers to and from the courses and airport were seamless and the service from Simply-Shuttles was "first class". We've been really impressed with Golf Escapes and would certainly look to be calling on your services in the future.
NM, Elderslie (November 2015)
Thanks for all your help we all had a brilliant time. The night golf was a splendid experience. Temperature was lovely. Would like to play it in the daylight. Will look to go in September next year.
MP, Bristol (October 2015)
Everything went to plan - hotel, golf courses & weather all superb, & went to watch Portuguese Masters which was a bonus. Thanks.
AB, Garstang (October 2015)
We had a great golf break!
Everything went really smoothly—the documentation, flights, transfers, hotel (facilities and location), and golf courses were all ‘1st class’. Many thanks!!
SO, London (October 2015)
We had a great time, loved Palmares. Will be in touch next year, probably do the same again.
TW, Brackley (October 2015)
We had an excellent trip to Majorca and were impressed by every aspect of it. The hotel was great (brilliant breakfasts) and location perfect. Everything we needed (good restaurants and bars) was in walking distance and we never even considered going into Palma! We loved Son Muntaner and Santa Ponsa, both as good as anywhere we've played abroad. All the transfers worked perfectly and the staff helpful and courteous. All in all we could not have been more pleased. We shall return, probably in September 2016, and will certainly be coming back to you. Many thanks for an excellent service.
JM, Harrogate (October 2015)
I just wanted to let you know how well the golf holiday went. The arrangements were perfect and ran very smoothly, all transfers were there on time with no hiccups at all. We were all very impressed by the service provided by all the golf clubs, particularly the Oceanico courses and of course Montei Rei. Unfortunately we got wet at Monte Rei but their staff were so attentive they even tumble dried our clothes while we had a warm shower afterwards!
Whatever we paid for Monte Rei was worth it, a lovely course and service which really made the holiday stand out, even in the rain!
Thank you again for the service you have provided from start to finish.
Vila Gale Marina, Portugal
RW, Somerset (October 2015)
We had a great time thank you, but unfortunately I don't use Facebook. The organisation was first class. All the transfers were there on time and vouchers were accepted without issue or problems and all the golf courses treated us really well, especially Monte Rei, which was the highlight of the trip. Fantastic course and service, they even tumble dried our golfing gear while we showered afterwards.
RE, Somerset (October 2015)
My fellow golfers and I had a wonderful holiday at the Gran Hotel in Benahavis. It is a lovely hotel in a lovely part of Spain. The rooms were super, especially mine which had a balcony, overlooking the courtyard and getting the sun in the afternoon. The village is small but full of restaurants. Eating out was very reasonably priced. Simply Shuttles who taxied us everywhere did an excellent job. All the drivers were there before the stated pick up time and they all drove carefully. Their vehicles were very comfortable, clean and in great condition. I was delighted to receive my putter, balls and tee shirt when I got home. Thank you.
HA, Dungannon (October 2015)
Thank you very much for organizing such a great holiday. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and I will hopefully be in touch in a few months’ time to plan next year's trip. Every one of my group enjoyed it and had a good laugh etc. El Rompido resort was great again – the apartments were nice and a decent size. The golf courses were as good and tricky as last time…. We all enjoyed Isla Canela…. my chums saying that they thought it was better than Monacilla. I would also add that there were no problems with the transfer vehicles this time….. Each one was excellent. In all, another fantastic trip. So, thanks very much for your help and organisation….. Speak to you soon about the next one!
NC, Liverpool (October 2015)
Just to say once again many thanks to you and Golf Escapes for the outstanding organisation of this year’s trip! Our party once again had a fantastic time from start to finish.Simply Shuttles were always prompt and on time while also accommodating a couple of ‘earlier’ pick up requests that I made from the courses as we were 4 down. Accommodation was excellent!
The courses were great (and in great condition) and all enjoyed the challenge – particularly Marbella G&C!! Probably the toughest front 9 of golf I’ve ever played!!! Rio Real was most of the groups favourite so you saved the best for last!
PW, Surrey (October 2015)
just a quick note to say our holiday to Cornelia was fantastic. The hotel if anything has got better Jon.
I note the in room mini bar is back in the all inclusive stay .. the staff service was really high, very attentive ... The facilities spot on. We loved it, and now knows why me and the guys enjoy our golf there lol...Also, Belgin and Ahmed from golf and wellness were also spot on .. So polite :) Your organising, outstanding.
PT, East Sussex (October 2015)
We all had a fantastic time, enjoyed every minute and will certainly be considering Golf Escapes when booking our next trip.
Thanks to you and your colleagues for all your help, it really made the whole thing a much more enjoyable experience.
AE, Yorkshire (October 2015)
Excellent customer service.
NS, Ballywalter (October 2015)
Everyone had a great time, weather, coaches, hotel and course were really good. Our Captain will give you a shout regarding your deals for next September.
TC, Newtownabbey (September 2015)
We would like to thank you all for arranging our first golf holiday to Salgados Palm Village. Everything went according to plan. Our airport transfers were excellent and our golf tee times fitted in with the transfers perfectly (Some people had to hang around either before or after their round and a group were told no transfers had been arranged and ended up paying for a bus for the week!) The only thing I was disappointed with was the weather on our non golf day which meant no sunbathing for me, shame you couldn't arrange that for us!! [Golf Escapes Note: We try to put requests in re weather, but sometimes this does not quite work to plan!]
We really enjoyed the courses, and hope to book a similar holiday for next year.
DD, Aberdeenshire (September 2015)
Fairways like carpets, greens like snooker tables, and manicured to within an inch of its life. And a really enjoyable design with glorious views. So pleased we have a return visit to anticipate.
JD, West Lothian (September 2015)
Would just like to thank you all for the great organisation for our trip last week, everything was spot on.
GM, Lanarkshire (September 2015)
Everything went like clockwork & the weather was superb. We had a great time for which we all thank you.
RB, Barnsley (September 2015)
Arrived home yesterday bronzed and knackered, thanks to you all for your organising skills you made the week extremely enjoyable and hassle free. Yet again, first class service from Golf-Escapes. Kindest regards to all the team. Roll on the next trip.
RC, Worcestershire (September 2015)
Just got back from a brilliant week in the Algarve I would like you all and the team for a brilliant golf break.
PG, Cheadle (September 2015)
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for completing the impossible task we gave you considering how late we left it and the demands and budget etc.... You did a great job and Alex and I had so much fun. Penina was great we played 36 holes both Friday and Saturday and squeezed 18 out on the Sunday! We look forward to booking again next summer with a potential British golf weekend in between!
SW, Uckfield (August 2015)
Thank you for your email and once again La Cala did not disappoint - an enjoyable and relaxing holiday with some good golf interspersed with less than outstanding golf! We will be in contact later this year to book again for next year.
AW, Brentwood (July 2015)
Just wanted to thank you (and Kim) for arranging our recent holiday to Vale De Lobo. As before, the hotel (Dona Filipa) and the golf courses (San Lorenzo and Pinheiros Altos) were absolutely excellent and we will definitely look to return! Thank again for making our holiday so enjoyable.
DM, Poole (July 2015)
Just a quick word to say that the trip went without a hitch, the accommodation and location were excellent and the golf courses very good and welcoming. Thanks to you and the team for your assistance.
CG, Leicester, (july 2015)
Holiday was fantastic thanks – Gloria Serenity was an excellent hotel and we’ll be looking to return next year. One of the other golfers will be arranging next year’s trip and will be in touch soon. The support on the Turkey side from your agents is excellent.
MH, Rayleigh (July 2015)
Just to let you know that our recent Bromley Society golf tour was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.The golf courses were excellent. The hotel was good. Car hire and organisation went smoothly. Many thanks. I'm sure Andrew is already arranging further tours.
PB, Kent (June 2015)
Just returned from the Regnum
, I have to say ,what a blinding hotel. The whole stay was without fault, from the welcome drink/greeting, signing in etc, then the rooms, great,. The entire staff were without doubt, extremely polite and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The service was second to none, never waited more than a few minutes for drinks, even round the pool etc, never had to ask twice. The courses were also top notch, Carya
being the best, played Sunday, only 50 people booked for the whole day, such relaxing golf. The Rep from Turkey was very good. Hope we can do a deal with you again soon.
TD, Kent (June 2015)
Dear all. Just returned from an 8 nights stay in Sueno Deluxe Belek
. Would like to thank you for the excellent service of your representative in Belek
. The service was more than professional. We would like to thank especially Belgin engin and Ahmet they were great. We would definitely use Golf Escapes again and again and will recommend our friends to call you to organize their vacations. Very impressed by your services. Thank you again for all involved persons.
DM, Lebanon (June 2015)
It would be so unfair of me not to say a very big ‘thank you’ to you , Mike, Kim and the rest of your team for again arranging a fantastic holiday, which seems to get better and better each year. The courses we played, Santana
, La Cala Europa
, Rio Real
were first class and the hotel fantastic. Special note to Santana, for there great hospitality towards all 16 of us, and those little touches went along way and we will certainly be going back next year. All of us are already looking forward to 2016’s trip.
AK, Bedforshire (June 2015)
We had a terrific time in Las Madrigueras and of course the golf at Las Americas. What a wonderful place, the staff in the hotel could not have been nicer, the whole set up was perfect.
AB, Aberdeen (June 2015)
Returned yesterday from Turkey. All went very well. The hotel (Cornelia Diamond) was the best yet, the rep was very helpful and the courses were good. We were so taken by the National that we arranged to play it again, as our sixth round on our last day.
JW, Reigate (June 2015)
We have returned home from a fabulous holiday at the Zeugma.Thank you so much for making our stay there so easy and enjoyable. SG, Glossop (May 2015)
Good morning ... we had a brilliant holiday at El Rompido again. Venue and golf course's are excellent. Hotel staff very friendly. The food was of a high standard throughout. We should be going back next year unless there is another golf package with similar deals elsewhere in Spain. Thank you and your company for a good holiday.
TH, Northern Ireland (May 2015)
We have just returned from yet another great week in Belek. We enjoyed staying at the Gloria Golf Resort and we managed to get rooms in the main hotel again. The golf courses were still in excellent condition despite coming towards the end of the main golf season. So my thanks again to you and Jon for organising a great trip.
DH, Edinburgh (May 2015)
All returned safely and have had a great time (as always). Flights to Turkey - On time!!; Voyage Hotel - as good as in previous years; Golf & Wellness Reps - Superb; Courses - great.
After 14 years of doing this it's time to hang up my 'organisers' boots and let someone else do the leg work for a change. I think our group has been with you for at least 3 of the trips and I can't thank you all enough for your help, professionalism, guidance and patience- something that i will pass onto whoever takes on this role.
Once again thanks for all your help
MS, Worthing (May 2015)
Just to say we all had a fantastic time on our trip. The accommodation was great, the hotel staff were extremely helpful (I always do an honest trip advisor report and will be mentioning them – as well as yourselves!) The facilities at La Manga were also great, we tried numerous restaurants and bars and we were never disappointed. The golf courses were in great condition and the staff there were also spot on and couldn’t have done more for us.
The consensus was a unanimous vote for a return next year and I shall be contacting you either late this year or early next year. Thanks again.
MM, Wimborne (May 2015)
Just back from the Sirene Hotel in Turkey and playing the Pasha and Sultan and we all had a great time, the courses were excellent, the hotel and food very good and everything went smoothly.
RG, Grangemouth (May 2015)
Every aspect of our holiday went without a hitch. It was my first time to organise a golf holiday and you made it look so simple. Many thanks and a special thanks to Jon Ruben who was a pleasure to deal with. Our next holiday will be the same time next year so watch out for our enquiries.
SO, Co Dublin (May 2015)
Everything went well on our holiday, so well, we are thinking about returning to the same hotel The Gloria Golf Hotel in May 2016 for 2 weeks with 5 rounds of golf. We were all very impressed with your company's organisation and also all your staff who were so very helpful and pleasant whenever I made contact with them. Thank you once again from some very happy pensioners.
MR, Cornwall (May 2015)
We had a great time at the Sirene in Belek, weather was hot and dry, Hotel was good, golf courses were in good condition,
All your organisation was first class there were no problems, all our party with me thank you and Kim for a very enjoyable holiday.
TS, Oxford (May 2015)
Just returned from Spain after a great break. Could you please pass on to Jon my sincere thanks for a fantastic recommendation.
The hotel (TRH Mijas), golf courses, car hire and everything else was first class and we all said that the holiday was one of our best ever.
JM, Worthing (May 2015)
Thanks, yes as usual everything was very good, we are now planning our September holidays, thanks for the quote, just the 4 of us this time. Once again many thanks for all your help and organisation... SUPERB!
PB, Cornwall (May 2015)
Just to say we really enjoyed our trip to MELIA La Quinta.Great room and everything well organised. Thank you.
MC, Cumbria (May 2015)
Just a quick note to say thank you for all your help with the Golf Holiday. It was a perfect holiday at the Regnum Carya from start to finish, everything was excellent, transfers, staff, hotel, golf and we would definitely use Golf Escapes again in the future. We all have serious holiday blues today!
AM, Radlett (May 2015)
Had a great time at El Rompido, golf scores could have been better ;-) . Will use Golf Escapes for future trips. Thank you for your services.
RS, West Kirby (May 2015)
Just a brief note to say that everything went to plan on our trip to La Cala. Same again next year!!! Thanks to all at Golf Escapes for a great trip and you even organised first class weather.
AS, Worthing (May 2015)
Just a quick note to say “thank you” to all involved in our recent holiday. Our villa at Castro Marim was really good. The on site golf courses were great and we really enjoyed Quinta da Ria and Monacilla. The weather was perfect which always helps! I would certainly return to Castro Marim and would recommend it as a golf location, many thanks again for all your efforts.
JC, West Sussex (May 2015)
Just returned from our Portugal golf trip . Had a great time , everything was perfect and you even managed to arrange good weather for us !! . Many thanks for all your help , it is our intention to repeat the trip again next year at a similar time and I will be in contact with you later in the year for prices.
KB, East Yorkshire (May 2015)
Many thanks. The trip was most successful with all arrangements working perfectly. All transfers were on time and the drivers friendly. The hotel was a standard Palma Nova holiday hotel but the staff were all friendly and the reception staff particularly helpful. Rooms were ready for us on arrival. We were expected at all the golf courses and no problems were encountered. And finally the weather was perfect.
GB, Surrey (May 2015)
We would like to thank you for everything, holiday went great from the airport transfers to the accommodation. Weather was good so we were able to play every day. I would also like you to pass on our thanks to the transfer company for their excellent service.
KB, Newtownards (April 2015)
Hi Jon....holiday went very well, Golf Escapes arrangements excellent and we will return for the same next year! Golf not bad either!!
PG, Herefordshire (April 2015)
A wonderfully enjoyable trip, great organisation by your company, not one hitch!
JZ, Halifax (April 2015)
Having returned yesterday from above, the boys have asked me contact Golf Escapes to express their thanks for the brilliant weeks golf you organised for us. The weather was great for golf and everything went as clock work. As you said, we would not be disappointed in the two new golf courses we tried this year at Quinta South & Laranjal, they certainly got a big thumbs up from all of the tour party. Many thanks once again to all at Golf Escapes who made this year’s tour so enjoyable.
JP, Surrey (April 2015)
I would like to thank everyone at Golf Escapes for achieving what we though was impossible. Our request for a 2 night incentive trip to Tenerife for 19 people in January was a challenge as hotels don’t like letting rooms for less than 7 nights, particularly at that time of year and all single rooms!. We wanted a good quality 4 star hotel, golf for half the group and transfers both ways. And of course we had a fairly tight budget. The team at Golf Escapes managed to pull it off. It took a little time and effort as so many hotels rejected the request but they didn’t give up and eventually found us a great hotel in an ideal location. Flights worked very well despite our original airline cancelling at short notice which meant new flights had to be found at short notice – all done before we even knew there was a problem. In resort everything went according to plan. Transfers arrived on time, including transport to and from our chosen golf course. Tee reservations and club hire etc. were all in place so we didn’t have to worry about anything. The team at Golf Escapes couldn’t have been more helpful (and patient) as we didn’t know passenger names until the last minute. They obviously knew who to speak to at the airlines as I have never known a low-cost airline be so flexible
Cannot recommend the team highly enough – thank you!
GB, Hastings (April 2015)
All arrangements were great, all functioned as agreed, we are very satisfied.
IYO, Finland (April 2015)
Thank you for all your help - we had another fantastic holiday at the Voyage Belek and your agents in Antalya (Belgin at Golf and Wellness) looked after us brilliantly, always on time and flexible on pick-ups from the golf course. The only disappointment, as ever, was my golf and it was not as though I could blame the courses which we thoroughly enjoyed.
I will, of course, be in touch when we are ready to book our next golfing holiday whether it be in Belek or some other destination.
PH, Longridge (April 2015)
Myself and all my golfing party had a blast in Portugal last week, from the accommodation to the condition of the three golf courses, they were first class as was the service from yourselves. The whole week went by without any hitches and I will be gladly using Golf Escapes again when I book up our next trip and recommending your web page to my fellow members at my golf club. Thanks again for a fantastic week in Portugal.
AM, North Lanarkshire (April 2015)
We had a fantastic trip and the four golf courses you guys recommended were spot on! If/when we return to Marbella we will definitely be looking for you to organise the courses again.
KR, Glasgow (April 2015)
Just wanted to say thank you for organising our trip. All went like clockwork and we had a fantastic time. Very impressed with the the way our trip went and will definitely be booking you again for our next golf trips.
RW, Hampshire (April 2015)
That's us back from another fantastic holiday in Turkey - from your side we had no problems what soever, All pick ups were spot on time and airport transfers were all done very well. The Voyage hotel was fantastic.
DM, Kincardinshire (March 2015)
We have returned today from our Turkish golfing break and I felt I must email you and the team to give you our very positive feedback. Every aspect of the holiday was faultless.
The Golf and Wellness Reps were the height of efficiency. Their staff were polite efficient and courteous. They were punctual and the lady who met us at the airport made sure we had all the information we needed. Golf vouchers, emergency contact numbers etc.
The Cornelia Diamond was without doubt one of the best hotels we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. The facilities were were superb and the staff worked tirelessly to ensure we had everything we needed. As you know we played all our golf at the Faldo course which was very enjoyable.
Please pass on our thanks to all the team at Golf Escapes for sourcing and organising this most enjoyable break.
We would definitely return to this hotel again and hopefully try out some of the other courses in the area.
We will not hesitate to use your company in future.
Sincere thanks and kind regards,
J & MD, York (March 2015)
Thanks for the e mail. The trip was superb.The travel arrangements you organised worked like clockwork,.the hotel was excellent and the tee times and golf courses just right.The weather could have been a little better but you cant have everything!! We hope to make it an annual or bi-annual trip and so hopefully will be back in touch soon.In the meantime we would have no hesitation in reccommending your company to our friends.
AB, Kent (March 2015)
Thanks for arranging our golf holiday. Everything went like clockwork and the weather was great, 20/25 every day.
CT, St Albans (March 2015)
I know I have said this before but I am astounded by the level of service from Golf Escapes. Both you and Kim are a credit to any company. Your competitors have, I think, become lazy and will need to watch out. I certainly will, no longer, make either of them my first port of call...
NJ, Surrey (March 2015)
We would like to thank you - and your colleagues, and your representatives in Turkey, particularly Belgin - very much for a great holiday at the Sirene which we returned from yesterday, much enjoyed by all of us.
AM, Purley (March 2015)
The transfer company were particularly good and we commented to each other that they were much more reliable (& indeed friendly) than the usual - first class! I believe the hotel is not normally one you promote but it might be worth considering them, especially for lads trips. whilst it is a "small & friendly" and some aspects (e.g.bathrooms) apperaed a little tired, it is a good little hotel not far from the action. By & large I think the Trip Advisor comments of others are accurate - decent breakfasts compared to many, very friendly people, beds are fine, price is right.
SJ, Lancashire (March 2015)
We have just arrived home from a weeks golf at Lykia World and inspite of rainy weather it was an excellent week. The course is just outstanding and a joy to play; the staff and facilities both at the Links and the hotel were excellent and we shall return. My wife and I were so pleased at how well they looked after us at the Lykia LInks Golf Course - it was impeccable, and the same can also be said about the Hotel and the Golf & Wellness people who cared for us. Thanks again to you and all at Golf Escapes and I will spread the gospel to all my golfing mates in and around the golfing area of Ripon North Yorkshire. What an excellent company you are to deal with.
GW, Ripon (March 2015)
Just back from Islantilla and I thought it only right to let you know it all went perfectly The Hotel was excellent with superb food and the golf was fabulous. Very good weather all week helped as well. Thank you very much for your help and guidance. We are currently looking through your web-site to plan our next golfing holiday.
BB, Burnley (March 2015)
A wonderful video from our friend Cory Davison, an inspriational young man. http://youtu.be/uG2kLwjb-jw
Cory Davison, Newcastle (February 2015)
Great holiday and everything went very smoothly. Transport was excellent – clean coaches courteous drivers and always on time. Golf was great (although I personally didn’t have my best game with me!)
Golf del Sur was the best of the two courses. Overall a very good holiday and will certainly check out Golf Escapes for our next trip. Many thanks for your help in arranging this one.
RB, Ashby, (January 2015)
Our experience with Golf Escapes at Alexander the Great Beach Hotel in Cyprus was perfect. The weather was rainy but we were able to play the 98% of the holes. Now we are thinking of spending some days playing golf at Donnafugata in Sicily.
FM, Torino, Italy (January 2015)
As you know, we have used Golf Escapes for many years now and we thank you for your ongoing excellent service.
DK, Edinburgh (January 2015)
Just back from our holiday at the Voyage in Turkey. Apart from one morning of drizzle, we had brilliant weather - mostly sunny 18c. A good time was had by all and hopefully we will be doing the same next year!!
TW, Aldwick (January 2015)
Just wanted to say thanks for organising the golf trip. Really enjoyed it, the hotel, the golf and we were blessed with the weather.
KD, Midlands (January 2015)
Thanks Mike, it was a very successful break: Hotel location, food and staff all outstanding, room excellent. Your organization worked perfectly.
Congratulations, we are very picky travelers.
JG, London (December 2014)
Brilliant, thanks very much for all your help and we look forward to our next escape.
PB, Cornwall (November 2014)
We had a fantastic holiday at the lovely Elba Sara Hotel in Fuerteventura. We would like to give a big 'thank you' to Mike, Jon, and of course yourself - Kim. Everything went like clockwork. The hotel was wonderful could not fault a thing. The golf courses Fuerteventura and Salinas were in top condition and it was a joy to play. We will most certainly be contacting your team again for our next trip in March. The only problem will be to better this holiday!!
EG, Luton (November 2014)
We had a fantastic time! The Regnum Carya was amazing and everything we hoped it would be. We will definitely contact you when we are booking our next holiday.
LF, Cambridgeshire (November 2014)
Thanks, we had a great time and everything went like clockwork as usual
DM, Dorset, (November 2014)
We had a great week and the weather was fantastic. We thought the "Eurotel" was super and although Altura was a little bit quiet we found a superb little bar and a couple of great restaurants. We also ate out in Villa Real and Monte Gordo. The golf was great and we particularly liked Castro Marim and Quinto do Vale. We also had a visit to Monte Rei. What a place. Thanks for you continued great service and all the best to all the team.
BB, Burnley, (October 2014)
Another very enjoyable holiday at Islantilla. All arrangments went perfectly, thank you for your help.
JP, Bromley, (October 2014)
Thank you for your welcome back email. Every aspect appeared to go really well with hotel and golf courses both excellent. The car we had, on your recommendation, was ideal and took luggage and clubs brilliantly. I shall certainly not hesitate to call upon you for future golfing breaks and would ask you to keep in touch.
TH, Norfolk, (November 2014)
We had a great trip to the Sheraton Salobre and golf was good. Everything was very well organised and we will certainly contact you again when planning our next trip. Thanks for all your help.
SW, Cheshire (October 2014)
A very nice stay, which must represent some of the best value in golfing holidays: The whole trip went very smoothly, the hotel could not have been better, excellent rooms, food, wine and a great course. Thanks for your help once again
JC, Reigate (October 2014)
Many thanks - was a great holiday to Penina again - lovely weather, golf not bad...lovely to get back to this cold weather too!! Thanks again for all your help.
JM, Redditch (October 2014)
Thanks for sorting this trip out for us; it was a very slick operation and exceeded my expectations if I'm honest. Transfers etc all went exceptionally smoothly, the accomodation was great and the golf was fab, the only exception being the mosquitos, but you can hardly be blamed for that. We'll definately be going again and will contact you in the first instance when we have dates.
PC, Ballymena (October 2014)
Thank you for your email, we really enjoyed our holiday. The weather was very good, no rain in 16days!! The golf was good, the courses were in very good condition. The car we got was only 3 months old, a Seat Ibizia, very good and the agent was very helpful. Our villa at Pestana Palm Gardens was all on one level this time, with stairs leading to a huge roof balcony comprising of 4 sun loungers and a table with 6 chairs, could not ask for anything better. Will be in contact again next April.
LL, Sheffield (November 2014)
A quick thank you to you both for a well organised break in Vilamoura.
GH, Malvern (October 2014)
The crowd had a wonderful time. We would recommend to anyone. Thank for for the organisation of your company in providing the holiday hotel/golf.
HF, Notts (October 2014)
We had a great time at the Gran Hotel Benahavis albeit the weather was mixed. No need to worry about next year - you will be hearing from me in the near future.
RC, Worcestershire (October 2014)
We had a great time thank you and your colleagues very much for all your help.
PD, West Yorkshire (October 2014)
We have just returned from Alvor in Portugal after a very enjoyable trip - all went well apart from the weather yesterday, we had a good run up until then though...thanks to the team for organising and accomodating last minute changes, much appreciated. Looking forward to choosing a location for next year.
GR, Cheshire (October 2014)
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say 'thank you' for all the organisation for the trip.
DT, Surrey (October 2014)
Thank you for handling all the arrangements so efficiently. Everything went very smoothly including the last-minute change of course which Mike did for us.
Thank you again, everyone in the group thought it was very smoothly handled and enjoyed the TRH Mijas Hotel, courses, rented clubs, hire car etc and I have pointed them all to your website.
MC, Danehill (October 2014)
The best holiday ever, absolutely fantastic, thanks to everybody at Golf Escapes for making this possible.
PL, Crawley (October 2014)
Just a short thank you for organising our holiday. We had a fabulous time and everything went like clockwork. They gave us an upgrade from the Elba Sara to the Elba Palace which was great - thanks again.
PM, Hexham (October 2014)
Hi all at Golf Escapes,
Back home after your well organised 'escape'.
Everything went extremely well,no problems at all.
TT (Crowborough), October 2014
Good trip to the Gran Hotel Guadalpin Banus. San Roque Old and Finca the best!
RB, Beaconsfield (September 2014)
Just returned from the Lisbon golf trip and would like to pass on a big thank you from all my party members and myself. Everything worked out very smoothly with no issues. Airport transfers and golf transfers with Surprise Tours was an excellent service - on time, friendly with good quality buses.
Hotel Al Foz was again very friendly helpful, clean and good location for what we required.
Golf courses - All very challenging and in good condition given the very wet weather they had experienced in the area prior to us arriving, Penha Longa being the favourite of the group.
Thank you again for your support and look forward to dealing with you and golf escapes again in the future.
PM, Newart, Notts (September 2014)
Thanks and very good holiday thank you.
La Finca Hotel – excellent and very friendly and helpful.
Transfers - all was very good, friendly and helpful – excellent!
Las Colinas - Fantastic course and the best by a long way. Certainly a destination course which everybody would love to play again ...
Golf Escapes - thanks for the excellent job. Good communication and paperwork all spot on!
Overall everybody had a good time and looking forward to the next one.
GJ, Camberley (September 2014)
My wife Hilary and I had a fantastic trip via you to Cyprus. A very good holiday which you organised down to the smallest detail very well. Many thanks for all your efforts and professionalism - you will be highly recommended.
PH, Portsmouth (September 2014)
I would just like to convey my thanks to yourself, Nick and all at Golf Escapes for a very enjoyable holiday. The service you provided was excellent and I will be recommending you to others.
MM, Ireland (September 2014)
Just back from my extended break!! everything went fantastically well - accomodation great, course great & weather great! Many thanks for your help as usual!
PW, Surrey (September 2014)
The Residences here at the Tivoli is fabulous. Thanks to Jon for his suggestion!
GH, Worcestershire (September 2014)
Had a great holiday as always at Madrigueras - how does this hotel maintain such a high standard year after year - admin from your side was excellent and will not hesitate in asking you to arrange our next golf holiday, thanks.
JM, Falkirk (September 2014)
Just a very short note to say how impressed we all were with all aspects of your organisation and we look forward to using Golf Escapes for our next holiday.
BA, Clemsfold (September 2014)
I thoroughly enjoyed the Bulgarian experience. I was so pleased that you'd recommended the B&B option at Hotel Mistral, a couple of the local restaurants (Corona especially) were excellent. We ate and drank like kings, and so cheaply! Thracian Cliffs is awesome, and if you're a straight, long hitter off single figures, it helps!! BlackSeaRama is very good, we had the course virtually to ourselves for both rounds. Thanks to Nick for putting together an excellent package.
AS, Reading (September 2014)
All was very good during the stay, golf excellent and the hotel was good also.
PF, Smallfield (September 2014)
Yes it was enjoyable and everything went very smoothly. All things we requested were delivered as we asked and there were no issues whatsoever. We have already booked a further holiday to Fuerteventura with you for January. We have been there previously with other operators and it appears there may be an issue with this destination because whoever we have booked with there have always been some hiccups along the way. If this one goes as smoothly as the one last week we will be very happy and will certainly return to your company in the future. It says something when we have been on numerous trips abroad with various operators and this is the first time anyone has e mailed us shortly after our return to enquire if everything went OK!
AJ, West Midlands (September 2014)
All arrangements went fantastically well and the rest of the group commended the arrangements from hotel to courses to transfers and are looking forward to doing it again next year, so January or February you will be hearing from me again.
BP, Windsor, (September 2014)
Thanks for the e-mail and yes we all thoroughly enjoyed our trip and the La Manga resort in all aspects was excellent. We are going to consider something on the Costa Del Sol for next year, look forward to hearing from you.
AD, Forfar (September 2014)
Thank you for all your help in our bookings and we look forward to using your golf-escapes again and again.
JS, Granada (September 2014)
Fab time again well organised by yourselves cannot fault you in anyway, will always use Golf Escapes for peace of mind and ease of booking everything. Your new Logo should be “let golf escapes take the strain” you deserve all the praise. Thanks will book shortly for next year.
RB, Birkenhead (September 2014)
Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time at Penina and everything ran like clockwork. Thank you for all your help.
MM, Glasgow (August 2014)
I have to tell you that this years golfing trip to Hotel Las Madrigueras in Tenerife with golf at Las Americas has been the best trip In over 10 years of golf in Europe. The Hotel was brilliant and the golf course was spectacular and in excellent condition. So thank you for organising that. We had a great holiday and will probably go again in future. Thanks again.
AB, Aberdeen (July 2014)
We had one of the best holidays we have had. Our choice to come back on the following day rather than on the last day of golf had a lot to do with the improvement. Santana is a lovely golf course and we would all go back there again. We all enjoyed staying in Mijas, which is a very attractive town and has a good choice of restaurants. Thanks for organising this trip and those for the past four or five years.
RW, Camberley (July 2014)
The holiday was a great success and enjoyed by all, courses excellent. Everything went like clockwork re transfers etc., and people were very hospitable. We will certainly consider golf-escapes if we have a holiday next year. Thanks to all your staff for their help in setting it up.
BG, Liverpool (July 2014)
Just to say thanks for organising the Holiday. We had a great time. The Dom Joao II hotel was great and enjoyed the golf courses.
ST, Edinburgh (July 2014)
Thank you for your welcome back message. I have left some comments on facebook but also wanted to thank you and Jon personally for the help you have given me. When I contacted you, I had just had news that our holiday in Bulgaria was cancelled by the holiday company and had to find a replacement quickly. You all rose to the challenge and recommended the Precise Resort El Rompido and I took it on blind faith. That faith was not misplaced and we were all delighted with the resort, the hotel, the golf - in fact the whole package, All the arrangements you either made for us - such as transfers - or recommended (golf club hire, the semi all-inclusive package that we'd never come across before) worked like clockwork. You even made easy, for both myself and the couple concerned, the arrangements for the cancellation under difficult circumstances. No fuss, just businesslike details provided with the right measure of sympathy. I will not hesitate to try your services again nor to recommend you to anyone else. Thank you again.
MD, Ashford (July 2014)
Kim thank you for recommending the Gran Hotel Benahavis a really great spot and beautiful old Spanish village, the golf was great and the restuarants all serving good food and wine, we will certainly use Golf Escapes again.
RH, Preston (July 2014)
Thank you for a well organised trip to the Voyage in Turkey. Everything went smoothly. The regular updates from Kim were great and we would definitely book with you again next year.
ES, Marlow (June 2014)
Just a quick note to let you know we all had a fantastic holiday at the Xanadu in Turkey and it was well organised by Golf Escapes. Thanks on behalf of all our group.
JB, Leigh-on-Sea (June 2014)
The break went without a hitch, and the El Rompido Hotel was brilliant – quality evident in everything, but friendly and unstuffy at the same time. The North course was really enjoyable, and La Montecilla where we also played is a smashing course. The restaurant at El Rompido, offering a wonderful variety of local produce and recipes with staple dishes of universal appeal, was just marvellous. You may remember we had chosen a different location originally, and El Rompido was your recommendation, so thank you – it was an excellent choice, and I will definitely use Golf Escapes for future trips.
DH, Belfast (June 2014)
I’m now back at work on Shetland a far cry from the heat in Turkey!! I would just like to thank you and your company reps included, from the start all the information/support supplied by yourselves was excellent and the reps at the Turkey end including driver were also excellent. It was the first time for a while that my whole family was together for a holiday and it didn’t disappoint! The Sueno hotel and all its staff have been so willing to help and make our stay as good as it was, in particular the Guest Relations Manager whom we had met on a previous stay at the hotel and we feel indebted to him, the food/drink was excellent and my kids will vouch for that. There was one disappointment and that was leaving! Both the courses were very good (if slightly worn T boxes but they do get used a lot). The food was exceptional with lots of variety and the drinks were better than a lot of places I’ve been before as well, so needless to say my brood all want to go back.
Once again many thanks to you and all your staff
ML, Shetland (June 2014)
Just wanted to thank you and Kim for all your help and sound advice with our ‘Tour’ to Cascais, Portugal. Your recommendation of the Pousada was an excellent one. We found two very good local restaurants recommended by the hotel. Course tee off times were very convenient and travel on BA and between the hotel and courses was very easy going. The courses were great and in good condition! Many on our tour considered this year to be the best ever tour in terms of hotel, dining out and golf course quality! We started back in 1999 so that’s a real Golf Escapes achievement! Well done to you both and many thanks once again.
RG, Hertfordshire, (June 2014)
Just back from Turkey. Great golf and great organisation. “Golf & Wellness Turkey” could not be faulted. The standard of the Gloria Golf hotel was superb and the whole set up for golf in the area, makes for a very slick, smooth experience. We’re already pencilling in next year, so I wondered if you could give us a rough costing .....
MO, Cambridge, (June 2014)
Just returned from a golfing holiday in Belek organised by Golf Escapes. Have got to say it has been one of the best organised holidays we've had and all down to this company. They are very professional and helpful. Their agents in Turkey (Golf and Wellness) were excellent too. Hope to go to Turkey with you again next year. Well Done Golf Escapes.
SG, Derbyshire (June 2014)
Just got back from our golf holiday in Belek at the Papillon Zeugma. Just wanted to say THANK YOU very much for organising our holiday. We had a wonderful time and everything was perfect - the hotel, the golf, the agents in Turkey. Your agents in Turkey were excellent and very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them, they are a credit to your company. We will definitely be spreading the word about Golf Escapes around our Golf Club.
SG, Glossop (June 2014)
We had a fantastic holiday thank you. Everything ran like clockwork no problem hotel (Elba Sara) great, food great, golf great. We shall certainly be in touch for another all inclusive - our friends were very impressed with everything. thank you once again on behalf of us all.
JT, Flitwick (May 2014)
We had a wonderful time without a single complaint or adverse comment to offer. We six, will certainly be booking another week’s golf, through Golf Escapes, next May 2015, possibly at the Gloria Golf Resort again, we all look forward to receiving your excellent service once again.
PS, Edinburgh (May 2014)
Just a quick note to thank your team and you for all the arrangements/changes etc. regarding our trip to Cornelia Diamond. Things went as smooth as ever with the in-resort reps and I even managed to play OK!! The National is still everyone’s favourite course and was in fantastic condition in preparation for the LPGA event.
DB, Anslow (May 2014)
I would like to congratulate Golf Escapes on our golf holiday to Dubai, from start to finish Golf Escapes were superb, from organising our trip, the transport to and from the Airport in Dubai, the Crowne Plaza Festival City, the courses Al Badia & the Creek Golf Club, I would have no hesitation in recommending Golf Escapes for Golf Holidays.
WS, Nottinghamshire (May 2014)
I would like to thank you on behalf of my husband, myself and the rest of the party for making the arrangements that enabled us all - golfers and non golfers - to have such a fabulous holiday at Cornelia Diamonds Golf Resort & Spa. We had not been involved with a group booking before and thanks to your help it worked well. The people who handled our transfers, the hotel and staff were fantastic and so were the golf courses I am told - although as a non golfer I did join them on the back nine on the last day at Faldo Queens course so was able to see that for myself - just as a buggy driver!! I have given your details to another couple, so that they may consider you possibly in the future.
JT, Hampshire (May, 2014)
Penina was superb as usual and Golf Escapes organisation was as ever first class.
JF, Norwich (May 2014)
Just to say thank you for arranging our golf trip to Montecastillo on the 13 May 2014. We had a surprise when we arrived at the hotel, they upgraded us to the villa's which were super. As usual the hotel met all our needs and the course was in very good condition. Some of us have been before and knew what to expect, and the new people were highly impressed with the hotel, course and the villas. We would recommend this venue very highly. So once again thank you.
PR, Portsmouth (May 2014)
Been back from the last trip to Portugal for ten days now and have failed to report in!! Everything went very well indeed and we all enjoyed clear blue skies all week, fine food, good golf and the odd pint of shandy!! There were only 12 cars in the car park at San Lorenzo on the day we played – millionaire’s golf!!
TE, Wiltshire (May 2014)
Just to let you know that we got back safe and sound after a great few days in the Algarve. Everything worked very well, the hotel was fine and the staff were very helpful and made sure that our complicated room arrangements worked with minimum disruption. Monte Rei was fantastic, we’ve played a lot of golf around the world and by common consent this was one of the best that any of us have played. Not only was it a beautifully designed course it was in great condition and the staff were superb, nice present for every golfer when we came of the course plus they cleaned our clubs and put them back on the coach for us, a great day. Anyway thanks again for all your help, we’ll be in touch.
PM, Brussels (May 2014)
What can I say!! We have just returned from the most fantastic holiday at The Voyage - think everyone around us is sick of hearing about it already... A big thank you is due to all of those involved at Golf Escapes. We will most definitely be booking with Golf Escapes again and have in fact recommended your company to a number of others, both whilst away and upon our return. Our rep in Turkey was most approachable, helpful and informative. The minibus driver was exceptionally punctual and flexible in relation to the guys golf transfers. Our resort was outstanding, with excellent facilities and extremely friendly staff (daren't divulge how much weight we all gained - the food was to die for!). The golf courses played were outstanding - in fact the guys were made up that they were allowed to play the Championship course at the National. So, have no doubt you will indeed be hearing from us again very soon....
MC, Letchworth (May 2014)
Thank you, Nick and the team - you have made my job as Group Organiser very easy, and I will always use you in the future.
MG, London (May 2014)
I just wanted to thank you and golf escapes for organising a great trip. It was all made so easy for us with really good golf and excellent accommodation at Mar Menor.
Would definitely recommend you...Many thanks !
ML, Brentwood (May 2014)
Thanks to all at Golf Escapes for the help in the Dubai booking, will recommend the way my booking was handled to my friends for future trips.
WS, Nottingham (May 2014)
Had a brilliant holiday at Islantilla Golf Resort. Cannot fault anything. Transfers, hotel and golf excellent. The staff were amazing, so helpful and pleasant. Thank you for your help and advice in arranging holiday. We had fantastic weather, thank you again.
JP, Bromley (May 2014)
We had a great holiday, the weather was very good, sunshine all the way, and the golf was excellent. The courses were in very good condition, pity we had to come home to rain!!
LL, Sheffield (May 2014)
Had a great holiday thanks, Precise Resort El Rompido looked after us fine, we got a room upgrade and a bottle of champagne on each of our birthdays which was really nice. We played both courses and we did prefer the North Course a bit nearer to our level. Would certainly go back.
KR, Hertfordshire (May 2014)
Your arrangements worked like clockwork! Thank you! Weather was great, Isla Canela Hotel was excellent, rooms as detailed and food better than ever. The golf courses were in superb condition. What more could we ask?
RP, West Midlands (May 2014)
We had a very good holiday at the Ayscha. The food was excellent and it has been refurbished to a high standard with comfortable beds and large walk in showers.
There was a small hiccup with no hot water in 1 room but a move was arranged very quickly. The Golf & Wellness team were also very efficient and friendly.
We were lucky with the weather and enjoyed all 4 courses.
JL, Kent (May 2014)
Many thanks again for excellent service, one of the reasons I have been delighted to recommend your company to numerous other golfers.
JS, Edinburgh (May 2014)
Thanks, we had a great and hassle-free holiday at Gloria Verde Resort, everything went ok. We met two other groups and I suggested you for future trips, we will be going back to Turkey at this time next year, so will be in touch in due course.
AH, Kent, (May 2014)
Thank you! We all had an excellent time at La Manga and your arrangements were faultless; we will certainly be booking with you again for next year!
TD, Norwich, (May 2014)
Just back from our break at Isla Canela. Everything excellent, transfers, hotel, all perfect. The hotel is exactly what we have been looking for as a golfing couple. Excellent service and staff. Location and course also great. We are both well travelled, and this is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in.
CL, Kingston (May 2014)
We had a fantastic time at Penina, everything ran like clockwork. A big thanks from all of the lads. I will be posting on your facebook and you will be getting a ring from me for our next trip.
DW, Blackburn (May 2014)
Just to say thank you to all at Golf Escapes for yet another wonderful weeks golfing break at Vila Gale Ampalius, everything went well and I will be contacting you in the near future regarding next years golfing break.
JP, Surrey (May 2014)
We have returned from what was a great "golf escape" at the Sueno in Turkey!! Please note I fully intend to come back to Golf Escapes for next year's trip and look forward to the same first class service.
KC, Fife, (April 2014)
I would just like to pass my huge thanks to you and your team as I have 16 very happy golfers, following our trip to Spain last week. We were impressed with the courses (El Chaparral, La Cala America, Marbella Golf & Country Club and Los Argueros) and the Polynesia Hotel yet again and already looking to book up for 2015.
AK, Sandy (April 2014)
The Dona Filipa hotel was superb, the service was 5 star, the room was excellent. Far too many EU hotels claim 5 star ranking, however most aspects were worthy of 5 (or more) stars! Finally, we want to thank you (and the Golf Escapes) team for organising our golfing holiday. We received excellent initial guidance and direction, followed by great interim support.
DM, Dorset (April 2014)
Myself and all the group would like to thank you all for another fantastic holiday at Sirene Golf Hotel.- everything was spot on and we all had a fantastic holiday. Look forward to booking our next holiday with you next year.
DM, Kincardineshire (April 2014)
Thanks very much Kim for all your support - And to Nick also who has been nothing but professional and organised from the first phone call.
MP, Wirral (April 2014)
I just wanted to give some feedback after our recent golf holiday to the Hotel Polynesia in Benalmadena, Spain. The hotel was spotlessly clean and well run with friendly staff, pool area is very nice and evening entertainment the usual singer and piano/guitar player duo routine. Your rep Paul was very helpful at the Airport, and we found CarGest provided an excellent friendly service and we would be happy to use them again.
With regard to some of the golf courses we played, Torrequebrada was the best course on the trip for me, excellent layout with some beautifully framed holes and superb greens and fairways. Would highly recommend this course to all who wish to visit the costa del golf. Marbella G&C Club - Very nice course with an interesting layout that was challenging but fair, the on course officials were extremely friendly and helpful adding to the experience, Great club house too. Santa Clara - best practice facilities of all, friendly staff and a good course that is fair and rewards good shots. the greens were lightening quick but true the fairways a little hard but all in all a very good days golf.
We will be returning to you for a quote next year as we plan to go around the same time, we may also consider Portugal or Turkey next year for a change.
Thanks again for a great trip at a fair price.
PS, Cheshire (April 2014)
We had a great time at Dalmahoy. Rooms were lovely and the food was brilliant. Staff were very helpful. Golf was excellent after the rain stopped. Would definitely recommend this break as great value.
SS, Fife (April 2014)
We have just returned from Vilamoura and would just like to thank you for arranging everything so perfectly. The entire holiday was seamless not even one tiny problem unless you count the 5 balls that I lost on Laguna!!
LB, Berkshire (March 2014)
I just wanted to email and say thanks so much for organising a great trip to Marrakech. We loved the course your chose (Al Maaden) and were able to get some good practice in. We will definitely use you again. The hotel also very kindly upgraded us to a Superior Room so that was an added and unexpected bonus.
JS, Winchelsea (March 2014)
The Algarve holiday has been a complete success everything from the hotel, weather and golf courses was excellent, and as I won on one of the days that was an added bonus! I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and all at Golf Escapes for the efforts you have made on our behalf for the past eight years making our European Tours such a huge success. I wish you all every success in the future and I am looking forward to next year’s tour.
AB, Nottinghamshire (March 2014)
My wife and I have just got back from our holiday at El Rompido and we would like to say thank you very much for advising us to go there,it was superb and we will be using your company in the future. The Hotel, Food, Golf, Car ,Golfclub Hire, and all staff were excellent, as we were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary it made the holiday very special.
DH, Stockport (March 2014)
Thanks so much for organising a great trip. We loved the course you chose and was able to get some good practice in. We will definitely use you again. The hotel (Riu Tikida Garden) also v. kindly upgraded us to a Superior Room so that was an added and unexpected bonus.
JS, Winchelsea Beach (March 2014)
We all had a great time at Hotel Elba Sara and will come back when looking to next tour. Thanks in particular with all the changes and organising golf and transfers, all went very well with transfers on time and helpful drivers.
PH, United Kingdom (March 2014)
Thank you. Having used other Golf travel companies I always recommend Golf Escapes to my friends.
LB. United Kingdom (March 2014)
Many thanks for your e-mail. This was our first golfing holiday at the Resort Sheraton Salobre and your Organisation were splendid. We shall certainly use Golf Escapes again.
J and P S. United Kingdom (March 2014)
Thanks for all your help as we always have a great time in Almeria and enjoy the hotel, the area and the golf, we are already trying to sort our dates for next year.
MB, Swindon (February 2014)
Just returned from our short break to La Cala and really enjoyed it. Weather could have been a little better but it is February. The hotel as always very good and the food wonderful. Thank you for doing the arrangements and we look forward to our next golfing trip in May.
PM, Bexhill on Sea (February 2014)
Thank you for your email, I was going to write to you thanking you for your very professional and helpful assistance in making the Turkey trip in the Maxx Royal so enjoyable. Everything went very smoothly. flights, transfers, golf courses great, service top class.
NT, Dorset (December 2013)
Just to let you know, we had a wonderful time at the Cornelia Diamond. At check-in to the hotel, we were given the upgrade without even asking into a Lake Villa which was very impressive. When we book again next year we will try to arrange earlier tee times, but everything else was excellent.
For your information, we met a couple who we had met last year, and they had gone with YourGolfTravel again, as we did last year. They had booked in Jan. 2013 and were told that there was no availability at the Cornelia Diamond for the same week as us and were not at all happy that we had managed to book in August and get in. I gave them your details for future reference. Many thanks again.
LF, Cambs (November 2013)
We have just got back from Northern Cyprus and had a great time. Korineum Golf Resort is great with some really interesting holes and fantastic views so that coupled with the lovely weather made for a lovely time. The accommodation and facilities were excellent and would recommend amend as a place to go to my golfing friends. We will certainly be in touch when we need to organise another golf holiday.
RW, Wimbledon (November 2013)
Had a great time thank you very much, mainly due to the very meticulous way you booked all aspects of our holiday at the Penina Hotel & Golf Resort . Will have no hesitation in asking you to arrange our next golf holiday when we have decided where and when to go. Once again many thanks.
JF, Norwich (October 2013)
Just wanted to say thank you for arranging our golf break at Vale do Lobo Royal & Ocean courses. We found them in excellent condition and everything was first class. The accommodation at Dom Pedro Portobelo was up to the excellent standard that we have experienced before. All transfers were excellent and always arrived on time and drivers were courteous and helpful.
TC, Bromley (October 2013)
Fab time - everything great. Will be in touch soon for our Mar/Apr 14 trip.
EC, Tamworth (October 2013)
Thanks. Super trip to El Rompido. Food and hotel superb. We parted the best of friends.
RP, Bagshot (October 2013)
Everything went well at Pestana Dom Joao II - thank you Jon and team. Thanks again for the great service which we always get from you - all the only thing which was out of your hands was some of our play, but we put it down to late nights and over indulging! Thanks again, Golf Escapes team.
BB, Bognor Regis (October 2013)
Just back from a great week in Cascais and just wanted to give some feedback. Hotel (Vila Gale) was a great base. Big, clean rooms, balcony, large bar and good breakfasts.
Our choice of courses was very good (Quinta da Marinha, Golf do Estoril, Ribagolfe I, Belas, Oitavos Dunes and Penha Longa Atlantic) but Penha Longa Atlantic had to be the best.
Thanks for all your help. Everything went smoothly and the rest of the fourball pass on their thanks.
PD, Dublin (October 2013)
Thought I would give some feedback from our recent holiday to the Hotel Quinta da Marinha. The hotel was as good if not better than hotels in the Algarve, hotel staff were excellent.
Hotel golf course is a good test, and enjoyable when dried out (we had a thunderstorm on our first morning), and the Clubhouse was very good for food.
Oitavos Dunes course had some good points and the fairways and green were excellent. Clubouse staff were again very friendly here.
Overall thought - The hotel might entice us back for one week playing the hotel course, but I suspect the Algarve will win out next time.
Many thanks for organising our trip.
JT, East Lothian (October 2013)
Thank you very much for organising our trip!!! A very professional service. The guys had an excellent time. Everything went exceptionally well. The drivers were fantastic and couldn’t do enough. I will email ATS separately, but could you also pass on our appreciation. The golf courses (Alto, Gramacho, Silves and Pinta) were in fantastic condition and the staff very helpful, friendly and courteous. The Hotel Dom Joao II was excellent and the staff made our stay very comfortable.
I have already given you company website address to another golfer who organises trips at our club and I have no doubt that I will use your services again.
Once again thank you again!
JC, Belfast (October 2013)
We did enjoy our latest golf trip – at Penina …. Everything worked out well and most of us played some good golf etc! All of the courses we played on (Penina Resort and Penina Championship, Morgado & Alamos) were in good condition … even though we had 1 rain affected day! The hotel, staff, service and food were great … we would certainly consider there again and recommend it.
Thanks again for the organisation we are looking forward to the next one now …. And there may even be a lot more players next time around!!
NM, Liverpool (September 2013)
Thanks - it was a great trip. The Sirene Hotel was OK, and the infrastructure all worked seamlessly. The weather was fantastic, and only broke on the day we'd finished golfing !! (what brilliant planning?). The courses that we had chosen (Pasha, Tat Golf, Carya, Sueno Pines and Sultan) proved a stern challenge, but we're all getting older year by year. Thanks for your help again. The guys have got interested in Bulgaria now - so I will be in touch about this! Cheers!
AS, Reading (September 2013)
We had an amazing time at Park Hotel San Jorge. You and your team were awesome - far exceeded expectations. I will be using you for my next trip for sure.
NK, Ontario, Canada (September 2013)
We had a great time and really enjoyed the El Rompido resort especially the fact that it was so un-commercialised. The golf was good and excellent exercise as we did not have a buggy. I even beat my hubby winning three out the five matches!
Would definitely do it again!
NH, Abergavenny (September 2013)
Just to say thanks for the well organised holiday in Turkey, we have had a great time. Nice place good food and fantastic golf. Thankyou also for telling me to take a Doctors note for the buggies as if I hadn't I wouldn't have played. We loved the Sueno hotel, and that will feature in another holiday choice. Thank you again.
LH, Brigg (September 2013)
Back from holiday,we had a great time.The organisation from your end was perfect, and there were no problems at all. Everyone has asked me to thank you very much.Weather good, golf good,hotel (Sirene Golf Hotel in Turkey) superb. I wore the shorts every day and saw none to match them! Once again,thankyou for a great holiday. [Note from Editor: We have teamed up with Royal & Awesome and they are providing a pair of their trousers or shorts for FREE with all bookings for 12 or more people!]
TS, Oxford (September 2013)
We had a great time thanks to you and your team all went very smoothly. I have to say the Rio Real both golf and hotel are one of my favourite venues and will be returning via your good selves soon!
PB, Southampton (September 2013)
Thank you for your efficient service from you and your team.
TM, Sheffield (September 2013)
Hi Guys, just wanted to thank you all for your efforts in organising our golf trip to the Vila Gale Ampalius. I know it was a bit painful at times so I appreciate your efforts and patience. Laranjal was indeed very good as Mike suggested and O’connor had the best and fastest greens. All the boys have e-mailed on their return congratulating me on the organisation so I felt it only fair that you guys should share in the plaudits.
Thanks again chaps and Kim!
PR, Copthorne (September 2013)
Thanks for the welcome back, the new guys and myself really enjoyed the courses, hotel in fact everything about the tour was great. However it couldn't have happened without the good planning and organisation from yourselves.
The down side of it for me is that the old group and the new group want to go again next year, which will mean expanding the tour to either 12 or 16, with me left to set it all up again...
So, can I throw the courses at you now, same hotel, same arrangements for the transfers for the hotel and golf and the courses are ....
Thanks for all your help every year it is very much appreciated and it makes my job a lot easier.
RB, Birkenhead (September 2013)
Another year has passed and the golfing holiday comes round again. Once again I am impressed with the efficient way you deal with the documentation for the holiday, I am a bit of a novice when working with computers , but I have had no trouble at all printing off all the documents so I am well pleased.
MW, Mellor (September 2013)
Thank you for your good wishes for our forthcoming golf holiday,and thank Nick for his help also. As a Group Leader, I have received my complimentary Royal & Awesome shorts - you were right
they are outstandingly coloured,but I shall be on holiday!
TS, Oxford (September 2013)
Thanks Jon, we had a super time and were looked after very well indeed at Penina. The journey went very smoothly and the transfers worked great. Boys enjoyed the course and the hotel was very friendly and well equipped. Will certainly use you again. Thank you.
VA, Lingfield (July 2013)
We have just got back from Spain and again we had a thoroughly enjoyable trip. A little feedback for future planning. We all repeated our collective opinion that Gran Hotel Benahavis is excellent, the ideal place for us to base ourselves and the hotel of choice next year. Of the courses, we all wanted to return to Marbella Club; it’s a challenging but interesting course and being so near to the hotel helps. Valle Romano was again very good and the clubhouse there is first class, especially Maria [the lady that serves the food there, whom we remembered from last year]. The single van arrangement proved preferable to using two estate cars. That was mainly because the camaraderie is better if we are all travelling together. A great trip again, all went like clockwork and we shall just look at the nearby courses next year.
RW, Camberley (June 2013)
Good morning. We arrived back yesterday from our annual trip to the Pestana Dom Joao II, and as usual had a great trip. Many thanks for the continued support from Golf Escapes for our annual outing. We will now be starting to organise next years trip and will contact you later in the year to start the ball rolling.
JS, Edinburgh (June 2013)
Just a note to let you know we enjoyed yet another great golf trip arranged by you. Everything was brilliant from the hotel [H10 Andalucia Plaza, Puerto Banus], transfers and golf courses, couldn't ask for more, an excellent golf escape, just recovering now from the late nights out....
Will be in touch later on in the year to book next years trip, will be looking at the same place around the same time of year (may go the weekend before to avoid the bank holiday), same hotel etc based on similar group number but will be looking to play a selection of different courses.
RT, Gateshead (May 2013)
Mission accomplished ! Thank you for your efforts on our behalf. The arrangements in Bulgaria all worked out well and the golf steadily deteriorated as the week progressed as usual !
Thracian Cliffs is spectacular and a special place. Difficult but superb. Black Sea Rama was also most enjoyable and in superb condition. Lighthouse was fine and fitted in well with the package. The restaurants provided good food and drink at a very reasonable price as you advised and the Hotel Mistral was ok for our group.
All in all a success and thanks again for your organisation. Will certainly be in contact with you again if we go to any of your regions and happily recommend you.
TS, Torquay (May 2013)
Thanks again for another great trip, Turkey is going to be hard to be beat and dont think i will play a more manicured course than Lykia Links - what a stunning course.
Everything ran very smoothly from your reps over there, never had to wait for a pick up - they were always on time. Think we will be going back and the Voyage Hotel is amazing - glad i picked that one.
Thanks again for everything.
CB, Jersey (May 2013)
Yes, the holiday as in previous years was a great success. Although we were down to 8 this year the group thoroughly enjoyed Tavira - especially the evenings in that the town has an abundance of good local restaurants - spoilt for choice. The golf courses were challenging and/but possibly a little bit too long for us ageing golfers! The consensus of opinion is to repeat the exercise next year going again to Tavira, so I am sure I will be in touch towards the end of the year.
GE, Cornwall (May 2013)
We had a wonderful holiday at El Rompido - Hotel was very good and the courses in excellent condition.Tranfers were on time, and to top it all, theweather was wonderful.
HH, Clwyd (May 2013)
Thanks once again. We had a wonderful time at the Gloria Golf Resort in Belek. We hope to repeat it next year, God willing.
DC, Aryshire (May 2013)
Just to thank you for all your help in sorting our golf break at Carvoeiro Golf Resort - it couldn't have been better. Excellent weather, accommodation, service and, most importantly, stunning golf courses. Look forward to using you again in the future, as I'm sure do the rest of our party.
WS, Tiverton (May 2013)
Thank you for your welcome home message and, no doubt you will already be aware, the weather over the past week was absolutely superb over the whole 7 days. everything went very well, your new transfer company worked very well and if we had a quicker round on the other days I could use the drivers’ mobile numbers to alert them. The Vila Gale Tavira
, as always, was very good and the courses were in very good order – no doubt due to the wet weather that the Algarve experienced a few weeks ago.
Thanks again and regards
AM, Glasgow (April 2013)
Fabulous week in Spain
, 16th - 23rd April. Glorious weather from the moment we arrived on time thanks to Monarch.
The 4* hotel Holiday Polynesia
was superb as was the whole complex. The group thought the meals and free drinks service excellent and there were no complaints which is very unusual for temperamental golfers! Only a few of us used the Spa and pool facilities, which were free, for a couple of occasions.
The golf courses themselves were excellent. We started with a flattish course at Lauro
was beautiful but typical mountainous Spanish course. Good job we had buggies for all the courses. Cabopino
was restful before we met our old friend El Chapparal
. Last time it was very raw with little grass but this time it was voted the best course by most guys for its spectacular tee offs and views.
was also a good course but rather tight and woody for our big hitters.
We all enjoyed an excellent break and looking forward to doing the same next year.
It occurred to me that we might try a similar but shorter trip this autumn, around October time. Possibly a midweek trip for 4 nights and 3 days golf or 5 nights, 4 days golf...
KC, Oldham (April 2013)
We have been back now for a few weeks from what was the best trip of all to Turkey
. Your recommendation for the Cornelia Diamond Hotel
was the ultimate that we have stayed in!
When we arrived and mentioned that we were with Golf Escapes, the Hotel upgraded us - the organiser got a Diamond Suite, for 4, complete with it’s own pool in the lounge and the other 4 had a villa – all complimentary!!!
Anyway, enough of that, on to next year's trip to Turkey, which I would like to get booked asap with our group of 8 players as usual ...
JB, Bristol (April 2013)
Just a quick note of thanks to yourself and Kim for putting together our recent Golf Break to the Vale de Lobo
resort . We all had a great time. Can certainly recommend the Quinta do Lago North
courses they were a real challenge for us all.
CH, Sutton (May 2013)
A bit late but again thanks for the arrangements for our stay in Turkey in April 2013, again a wonderful stay ,excellent courses great Tee times, and no issues at all. Also thanks to Golf and Wellness for their prompt pick-ups and pleasant drivers as always. Hotel (The Voyage) was as usual excellent from room to catering to evenings. So, next year to plan for and I will be in touch. Many thanks.
CE, Wrexham (April 2013)
We all had a great time at the Dona Filipa & San Lorenzo Golf Resort & everything went to plan, so many thanks to you and the team.
GF, Burgess Hill (Mar 2013)
Just to confirm that we did indeed throughly enjoy our Golf Escape from start to finish. We were collected from the airport, as arranged. The hotel (Elba Sara, Fuerteventura) was clean, tidy and very well run, with attentive and well trained staff. The food was good and varied, the all inclusive being excellent value.
The golf course, although very busy, was in excellent condition and again well run and organised with some challenging and interesting holes. We were collected from the hotel, on time,as arranged.
We look forward to booking again with you for March 2014.
RG, Bishopsteignton, Devon (Mar 2013)
Just a quickie to say how much we enjoyed Fuerteventura. The Elba Palace was a great hotel and golf, at a very attractive rate, so thank you. We would like to do same again next year, perhaps for 4 weeks, so if you think you can do us a really good deal on that, we’d be interested!!
MM, Crowthorne (Mar 2013)
We’d like to say how much we enjoyed our trip, everything ran very smoothly, especially the transfers and shuttle buses. The golf courses were excellent and the staff very friendly.
Despite moving hotels (to the Dom Pedro Golf), we were very pleased with our accommodation and the staff were helpful at all times.
This was our first overseas golf holiday together and we’re already planning to go again.
PG, Sheffield (Feb 2013)
Penina was great - Lovely hotel - great golf course - Great week ... Many thanks
Shaun C, St Leonards (Feb 2013)
Excellent holiday, great value for money at the Sueno. Five of us nearer eighty (years not shots taken) and still not needing more than one stroke per hole. What other active sports game can provide such enjoyment? Hopefully we will do a repeat in a year's time. Cheers,
GH, Worthing (Jan 2013)
Excellent 5 days [at the Barcelo Montecastillo]. All 12 had great time and are already talking about next year. The Fiat vans were perfect.
CB, Fareham (Nov/Dec 2012)
Thank you for your e-mail. We had a super holiday and would like to thank you for making the arrangements which were absolutely perfect. Everything about the holiday was first class and we would recommend both Golf Escapes and the Elba Palace Hotel and Golf facilities.
SS, Guernsey (October 2012)
Just wanted to thank you to you and the team for organising our recent golf trip, all went well, both the MarMenor accommodation and the courses were first class. Overall Jon, a great break and we will certainly use you company again will be looking soon for next March/April time so any specials bear us in mind.
Thanks again ...
CB, Welling (October 2012)
We're home now and just wanted to say thanks to you and your team for all your support and advice. The Gloria was a fantastic venue and even I, the biggest complainer in the world, couldn't find fault with the whole experience, from the booking to the venue! :) I will definitely be going back!
Thanks again. No doubt Rob will be in touch for his next boys' holiday.
LG, Oxted (October 2012)
We had a great time thanks, though we did unfortunately get rain on Sunday – never mind, still enjoyed the golf. The courses [Vila Sol, Gramacho and Pinta] were great (the play however, not worthy of the course!!!!) as was the hotel [Dom Joao II]. Overall we had a great time and loved the golf.
SK, Barnet, London (October 2012)
I thought it appropriate to send you a brief message to say 'thank you' to you and all your colleagues at Golf Escapes for the help and support we received before and during our holiday. We had a lovely time at Penina and the hotel did upgrade us to a room with a view of the course and swimming pool after the confusion with our golf dates.
Once again Jon, thanks for all your help. I'll be in touch with you in due course for next year.
IB, Wellesbourne (October 2012)
Thanks for a great week - all your arrangements, transfers, tee times worked perfectl. El Rompido wasa great venue with wonderful golf we competed well and enjoyed the hotel facilities. We look forward to a future return.
NE, Burnley (October 2012)
Once again we would thank all at Golf Escapes for the excellent service...
DC, Cardiff (October 2012)
We had an absolutely fantastic time. Everything was just perfect. The Sueno hotel was super, food fabulous, staff great. We absolutely loved it - the golf wasn't bad either !!!! Lovely courses. We only played the Pines once as closed for maintenance etc. which we knew beforehand.
We will definitely be going back next year Sept/Oct.
RG, Burton on Trent (October 2012)
Fantastic trip. I loved the golf courses especially San Lorenzo.The hotel (Dona Filipa and San Lorenzo Golf Resort) was a joy of fading splendour. And the meals all memorable. Very many thanks to you Jon for making it all happen.
TM, West Sussex (October 2012)
I must say that we were very happy with everything. The accomodation at Praia d'el Ray was outstanding. Very spacious apartment with the best equipped kitchen we've come across in our (fairly extensive) travels. The golf arrangements worked well and the courses were good. I will happily recommend Golf Escapes, and the area, to golfing friends. Many thanks.
JG,Edinburgh (September 2012)
Just a quick note to thank you and the team at Golf Escapes for once again helping me to provide another outstanding weekend of golf for our clients!... Which I’m sure was capped by Europe winning the Ryder Cup last night! Praia d’el Rey in particular was a real treat while Oitavos Dunes was once again fantastic! Made more challenging by the Atlantic winds which even our Scottish guests hadn’t experienced before! Hopefully I’ll be in touch later in the year to start talking to you about 2013!
Once again – Many thanks!
PW, Weybridge (September 2012)
Jon thanks for all that you and your team did and for your personal advice in regards to the Sueno Hotel. My wife and I had a brilliant time the golfing/shopping was excellent the hotel staff are exceptional and we enjoyed every minute of our stay, we would also like to say we would whole heartedly recommend your company and the Sueno hotel, and you can rest assured that we will endorse by way of word of mouth to anyone wanting to go on a golfing holiday, we will also be going back next year through your company and will be making our booking early next year as we would like to fly from Stansted this time and also be bringing our family with us.
Once again a wonderful time was had! Many thanks.
ML,Isleham (September 2012)
Our sincere thanks to you and your team for a trip well planned and expertly carried out, the four of us will be returning to Turkey next year.
Just wanted to say thank you for our fabulous holiday. Everything was perfect. The weather, hotel, resort, golf courses – just everything. (Just a shame about the golf but can’t blame you for that!!l) We both thoroughly enjoyed it and your organization was excellent.I would have no hesitation in recommending Golf Escapes to my members.
Superb trip to the Dom Pedro Marina, Portugal - the Faldo and O'Connor courses were superb. Service was outstanding.
Hi Kim, thank you for the holiday documentation for our golf holiday in Portugal. Have made numerous copies for myself and my friends (dont trust anyone's memory ) and I have also put in our API into Monarch system, and will check in 18 days before we go .Thank you again as always you are efficient and make my job as organiser, so much easier.!!
Just to say thanks for organising our trip to Sueno Turkey. All went smoothly, everyone enjoyed it (even topped last year)! Will be in touch when next trip comes around. Thanks again.
We got back from Spain last night and while it’s fresh in my mind I thought I would give you some feedback [not sure if I did last year]. Gran Hotel Benahavis is an excellent place, with a wide choice of restaurants only five minutes’ walk away [uphill, but downhill coming back]. We all said we would be very happy to return there. It has two pools; you can sit out in the sun and out of the wind, but it also has plenty of place to sit in the shade, without having to move constantly to keep under the shade! Everything about the place is very spacious. We did not eat there, other than breakfast, but met a friend of ours who was staying there on our last night. They had eaten there and said the food was good. The two car arrangement worked well. Both cars were “estates”, which was necessary. So long as the cars are of that estate type it gives us some extra flexibility over the van arrangement. Having restaurants in walking distance also helped the drivers. Of the golf courses, Valle Romano is very stylish and everything about it shows class. It’s a good golf course to play, well-maintained, although it does have a couple of “crazy golf” holes, including the first, which is a bit silly since it slows up everybody right at the start. We all said though that it would be worth playing again. It’s only been going a couple of years but I suspect it will improve over the next five years. El Paraiso is more “established” and in a more mature residential area. We all thought the course was OK, benefits from not being hewn out of a mountainside / valley, but was a little tired and not so well maintained. We would probably choose somewhere else on another occasion but no-one actively disliked it. Overall it was one of our most enjoyed trips so thanks for unearthing all the components. Best regards,
RW, Camberley, Surrey
Thanks again for sorting the Holiday, Hotel Riu Puerto Marina was very good and the food really good. Location was spot on for local bars etc. Transfers were as usual very reliable and good service.
I have been asked by all the boys to pass on our thanks for a brilliant week’s golf in Cyprus. From start to finish Nick and the team around you have been nothing but fantastic. In these days of being very quick to complain I feel it only right to acknowledge a job well done under very trying circumstances sometimes. The flights with Thomas Cook all on time and very professional, Jack’s Taxi waiting, Hotel staff great even though they were not expecting us until 21.00, the rooms all ready with golf & sea view. The Golf , well what can I say we all loved the course and by the end of the week a lot of us could quite happily played again and again. The par 3, 7th was very kind to me 2 pars 1 double bogey and a fantastic birdie, very close to a hole in one. So once again please pass on my personal thanks to Nick for all his hard work. We will most certainly be in touch about the next trip.
IB, Scaynes Hill
Thanks for your "Welcome home". It was a super trip. The IC Santai has nearly finished it's refurbishment, and it proved to be a good base for us. The courses we selected all came up to expectations, nearly !! Carya, Montgomerie, Cornelia & Tat were excellent. The National had just hosted the Ladies Open. It was a great 95% experience,we are always searching for that elusive 5% ! Thanks for your help in the organisation, I thought early May was a good choice.
Just want to say that the golf experience from start to finish was excellent and we had a fantastic time at Pestana Delfim. Thanks again thinking about going next year but would be for 1 - 2 weeks just let me know when u have schedules for about July 2013.
Just a short note to say we had a fantastic time at the Voyage. The arrangements with Golf & Wellness went off without a hitch and the choice of golf courses was excellent. Overall the holiday was superb and I am sure we will be going back again at some stage over the next couple of years. Thanks to all at Golf Escapes.
Thanks for everything, got back yesterday and can only say this was a fantastic holiday. Everyone was delighted with both the accommodation at Dom Pedro Golf and the golf courses. Everything went to plan, in fact I'd go as far as saying clockwork!!! Big thanks from everyone. We will def be back again.
I would like to thank you all, including your agents, for arranging an amazing week at the Voyage Belek, especially the help you provided trying to locate the lost hand luggage. We are already talking about another trip next year at about the same week.
Once again everything went like clockwork at Pestana Dom Joao and the weather was superb. Everybody thought the courses were in fantastic condition . Thanks again for your
help in sorting out everything for us. I will be in touch later in the year to get another trip arranged for next year. Speak soon.

We had a super time and our friends enjoyed it as well. Montecastillo is superb but the problem is getting there as we do not travel from Stansted. The course is super except for the long climbs between holes especially towards the end which meant we needed buggies on some days which at 39 euros is a bit steep. Food and hotel very good, but I think we will be back in Portugal next Christmas /January with another gang of 4 couples.
We had a fantastic time at Pestana Palm Gardens, the accommodation, courses and the weather were great. When we start planning next year I will be in touch as your advice for this trip was spot on. Many thanks!
Everything went swimmingly at Cornelia Diamonds (including one or two of my golf balls)! The holes on the Faldo were a bit the same and very tight. The fairways were also crowned and so anything slightly offline disappeared into the woods or the wasteland. We liked the National but loved Carya. Your agents were first-class and were prompt and at our service. The rooms were excellent with good facilities and a separate loo, bath and shower. The staff were excellent throughout. Not all the hotel's facilities were operational but we knew that before departure. I thought the a la carte restaurants were a waste of money at €10 per person extra as there was a magnificent broad spectrum of food in the buffet restaurant with speciality grills providing fresh fish, poultry and kebabs. Vegetarians could have a field day also. I suspect we were a couple of weeks early and the middle of April would be better timing. The courses were very busy at this time of year and the rounds would take up to 5 hours which we did not mind as they are long and we played from the white tees which made it more difficult for us. Thanks to all your staff for their help. We will be back.

My friends and I would like to thank you immensely for organising our holiday at Hotel Elba Sara. It was just faultless. From start to finish, everything was excellent. The hotel was incredible and the course beautiful and unique.
TR from Leicester
It's absolutely great what you managed within a very short space of time. I have spoken to my wife and the ladies are very thankful for your help. Everything has been arranged as you described it.
One can absolutely count on you and it's definately true that ..... Golf Escapes is keeping our holiday on course ....
I do hope it is not the last time this year that we book a golf holiday through Golf Escapes"
KK from Germany
Everything was spot on again, many thanks from me and my lot to you and your lot.
P S from Huddersfield
Just wanted to say thank you to you and your staff following our recent golf holiday in Alvor. Everything went like clock work, the weather was even great. The golf courses were top notch. We even hit the ball well. I will look forward to arranging a larger group to go away next time.
S W from Stevenage
A belated thank you for arranging the golf holiday for my trip to Portugal in September. As always, great courses and the family had a great time. Great Service - keep it up!
R K from Aylesbury
We did indeed have a fabulous week. Penina was wonderful...accomodation, service, food all excellent. The weather also played ball with only one afternoon and one evening of rain....the rest was pretty much wall to wall sun. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the pool and the golf course was class. And indeed I did play well...I was delighted. Thanks for your first class service, everything went so smoothly and we both agree that Penina will receive another visit from us at some time in the future.
M B from Co Antrim
Just wanted to say thanks to all at Golf Escapes. We had a great trip at Pestana Dom Joao II!
D S from Harpenden
A short note of thanks for your excellent hosting of our visit last week: The whole trip was a great success and despite some reservations in regard to location and the “all inclusive” approach by some of our party prior to arrival, nothing could have gone better: The whole experience was greatly enjoyed by every member of the group, and this is a credit to you, your staff, and the quality of the facilities offered at Campo Real: We will pass on the word to a number of other potential guests as I feel you have a gem of a location, and a wonderful golf course, which suits all levels of golfer: Please pass on our thanks to the staff, especially those in the golf/pro shop, and the staff in “the clubhouse”: We were all so impressed by the friendly and attentive nature of the staff: The venue is a credit to you and your very professional attitude.
J C from Reigate
Just returned from an excellent golf holiday in Belek, Turkey. All arrangements were perfect (including the weather) and the two courses Pasha and Sultan were first class, thanks to you. The two pools were superb, we spent all our time at the splendid Olympic pool which was quieter. The beach was only a short walk away and great for swimming. We were completely delighted with our holiday. We will be back to try the Sultan again and perhaps to try some of the other courses. Thank you for arranging a superb holiday.
W M from Strathaven
Just wanted to say that we had a fantastic time on our golf holiday to Portugal and thanks for the well organised trip, from picking up the car, the hotel and the golf we had no problems or issues, we were so impressed of the package and cost, we gave your details to a few other golfers in the hotel. We will be going back to Portugal next year and will certainly be using Golf Escapes, many thanks once again
K P from Cheshire
Just like to thank you and your associates for yet another great holiday/golf break at Maxx Royal booked through Golf Escapes, we had a fantastic time and everything went superbly well all round, I will be sure to looking to book with you again very soon, once again many thanks.
P W from Sittingbourne
I've just spoken to your colleague but thought I would drop you an email to say thank you for your help throughout the booking and helping us have a great golf holiday to the Algarve! The golf courses were fantastic and couldn't be faulted with service being excellent. The hotel also met and exceeded our expectations with staff extremely friendly and helpful. The quality and cleanliness was also excellent. We will definitely look forward to booking with Golf Escapes again in the near future.
A H from Crawley Down
Having returned from Montecastillo yesterday (in the middle of the thunderstorm!), can I say how very pleased the four of us were with all the arrangements, both at the hotel and for the golf. We all thoroughly enjoyed our week there and would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a challenging course to play together with an excellent hotel deal. The staff were all very professional and friendly, and all the arrangements worked well. We were pleased we had upgraded to a 'Golf View' room as we had great rooms, with balconies, on the top floor, and certainly had a wonderful view! We met a couple from Cambridge who were also there on an all inclusive deal arranged through your company, and I know they were equally as pleased with everything. Many thanks for your recommendation, and we will certainly be using Golf Escapes the next time we are off for a golfing break.
A C from Cheam
Just returned from Belek (Sueno) everyone loved it, I know you said it was good but did not realise it was that good. Transfers went smoothly, the hotel could not do enough for you . Golf courses fantastic…thanks for everything!
J C from Exeter
Just to let you know we had a fantastic time in Turkey, everything was perfect. The hotel was excellent and Mahamut the rep was very friendly. The transfers to the hotel were on time and transfers to and from the golf courses were perfect. We would have no hesitation in recommending Golf Escapes to anyone. Thanks for all your help and hopefully we wil be in touch to book next years holiday.
M R from Bedford
Just got back from our holiday at Valle del Este Almeria. What a place, real Spain not full of tourists and wonderful countryside, it was great, and we were upgraded to a suite which was just perfect, thank you so much.........you can uncross your fingers now. I have to say we were very surprised how quiet it was in the hotel; there were only 9 people for dinner the first night, a few more people arrived later in the week. It seems it's the low season till the end of June which is surprising as it was perfect weather for golf. Any hotter and it would be uncomfortable. Anyway the holiday was so good we are thinking of going back later in the year, which is something we never do as we like to visit a new place each time.
A C from Pinner
Just a quick email to let you know that we all had a fantastic time and that everything ran like clockwork. The transfer people were great, always on time and very polite and helpfull.
Thanks for all your hard work, and be assurred that i will be recommending you in the future.
M W from St Neots
Just to let you know, we have just returned from our golf holiday at Emporda golf resort... fantastic, everything went like clockwork. Flights, taxis, hotel and golf, all brilliant value and the weather was fantastic too! Will be contacting you again for next year.
M W from Sheffield
I would like to add my personal thanks for all your team’s efforts. If you need anyone to go out there to try any golf courses or hotels you know my personal mobile number !!!!!!!!!!!!!! All I can say it was FANTASTIC everything you said it would be. The National and Montgomerie golf courses were my personal favourites, and the set up at Sueno was just superb. The Faldo was a very challenging course. I will definitely be going back there and very much look forward to booking with Golf Escapes. Thanks and my very best regards.
I B from East Ginstead
Thanks for another well organized Holiday at Formosa Park, everyone really enjoyed. The accommodation was very good, transfers excellent, and really good golf. Thanks again.
B W from Northumberland
Just some feedback from what turned out to be a fabulous trip at Sueno Belek. Hotel was great, friendly staff, beautiful rooms, food and drink excellent. Courses were top notch, beach area and promenade very nice. It began as our dearest trip yet but ended up as the cheapest. I spent £10 when I arrived for a visa, didn't need my wallet again until I was back at the airport on the way home. Terrific value for money, I would highly recommend it. Only downer, flight times and bloody Easyjet!!! So, thanks very much, I'll be in touch early next year.
J M from Northampton
We have returned from Spain and wanted to let you know that the courses and Gran Hotel Benahavis were very good. The town of Benahavis is lovely and highly recommended.
R S from Congleton
Just to let you know that we all had a lovely break at the Papillon. We will be in touch again next year.
D C from Ayrshire
Dear Golf Escapes, I would just like to send a huge thank you from all of our group to all of your team who helped make our recent golf trip to Belek a very enjoyable one (apart from most of our own golf). The level of service we experienced from yourselves and also your partners in Turkey was nothing short of excellent, the hotel and the courses were fantastic and the pick up’s to and from our hotels to the courses and airport were very professional and punctual. Thank you all from everyone in our group and we will without doubt be dealing with yourselves again in the near future.
S H from Limassol
Just to let you know we have just come back from our golf holiday on the Costa del Sol and had a great time and everything went very smooth and was well organised. Thanks once again.

Been back from our golf in Turkey a week now and almost feel normal again. Your local guy, Kadir, was brilliant, can’t recommend him highly enough. Very much appreciated. We had a great time. Many thanks.
R M from Lichfield
On behalf of the eight of us I would like to thank you for our golf holiday in Vilamoura which was brilliantly organised by yourselves. Many thanks.
