We pride ourselves on our fabulous service, value and knowledge of the golf holidays we offer. It makes our job so much more satisfying when we receive glowing feedback from clients who return happy after their golf escape. Have a look below at some of the comments we have received from our clients on their return from their Golf Escapes holiday...
HW, Lancashire (October 2017)
The trip was superb and your arrangements couldn’t have been better.
We will definitely be doing something very similar next year although it might be better to plan for 12.
I will be in touch in the near future.
BM, Oxford (October 2017)
Hotel - excellent facilities (although I didn't use the spa facilities myself) and a good standard all.
All the staff were very helpful, efficient and pleasant - particularly Delia on Reception. Excellent location with lots of restaurants nearby.
Golf courses - were all very good although Castro Marim was bit of a challenge with the hills - so pleased that I'd booked a buggy.
Transfers - all very efficient, turned up on time and drivers very competent, friendly and helpful.
Weather - was stunning with mid/late 20s every day and not a spot of rain.
All told a very successful and enjoyable tour.
SJ, Yorkshire (October 2017)
Had a wonderful time at the Cornelia Deluxe. The hotel was spot on - the food, accommodation (we did get upgraded to a swim to suite - probably because it is not a busy time of year but nevertheless very appreciated) and the staff couldn't have been any better, and of course the Faldo was very testing, but very enjoyable. The whole experience was brilliant, even if it absolutely poured down with rain on Sunday, but with no golf booked didn't matter...
Enjoyed it so much we are looking to go back next April, but probably try another hotel and course. Will be in touch.
SH-M, Buckinghamshire (October 2017)
It was brilliant from start to finish.
Your agents there looked after us very well and the Antik hotel was superb.
Next year Fiona will be organising our trip.
KG, Isle of Wight (October 2017)
We had a great time in Tavira; can you thank all your team for putting up with my many requests for change of players, venues etc., and helping the trip run so smoothly.
I do not know how you choose who to book the Portuguese transfers with, but can you please pass on our comments of how impressed the whole party were with the company used. They were spot on with their timings on every trip, and when it was us keeping them waiting there was never any exasperation shown on their part. Excellent service.
Well, you probably won’t hear from me now until about this time next year when I will start planning for our 2019 trip; until then take care.
JT, Denny (October 2017)
Hi Jon, not on Facebook but all was good, and would do it again. Thanks
MY, Surrey (October 2017)
I just wanted to drop you a line Claire and say a big thank you to you and the Golf Escapes team for all your expertise and guidance in helping organise our MY Golf Academy Cup. This is our 'flagship' event year that is attended by our most valued client and your insights into managing the event, and support throughout, made all the difference ensuring that our guests enjoyed a memorable event that will be talked about for many weeks and months to come.
HO, Wallington (October 2017)
Thank you for all your help and support once again prior to and during our stay in Lisbon.
Everything went really well and the weather was superb! Hooray!! Absolutely love the staff there, particularly the golf team.
They are wonderful.
RM, Sheffield (October 2017)
Thanks for the email. I thought I would write back to say how pleased and impressed I have been with both yourself and everyone I have dealt with at Golf Escapes. This is the first time our society has used your company and I have found it faultless. You have all been very easy to deal with, personable and have offered a great level of customer service. Everything with our trip worked like clockwork - all transfers arrived on time, all courses were booked correctly and had buggies reserved and the hotel was absolutely fine for our requirements - so well done and thanks!
As for my golf - I'm glad to report I finished 2nd (from 12), although I somewhat threw away the victory having finished 1st on the first two days!!! Oh well there's always next year - and I have already encouraged the tour organiser to use Golf Escapes for that trip!
All the best and thanks to you and all the team - keep up the great work!
AC, Buckingham (October 2017)
Thanks Claire, we had a great time and would highly recommend. I have passed the baton on to the next organiser in the group but I have recommended you to him. We will probably be having another trip in March time so I’ll make sure he touches base with you in the New Year.
Thanks for all your help, you made it really easy for me to organise!!
RE, London (October 2017)
Thanks for your email, I have only just got home after a prolonged holiday after our Golf Escape.
On that note, we would both like to extend our greatest thanks and appreciation for the entire trip, it was one of the most unbelievably awesome and memorable trips and we thoroughly loved every minute from start to finish, great hotel, excellent golf courses, the entire package was simply amazing and we could not have asked for better. We loved it so much that we are already sure that we will embark on the same style trip again next year, only this time we might have a group significantly larger.
Thanks you kindly for your help and organisation, it was incredible.
AC, Granada (September 2017)
We had a most enjoyable and trouble-free holiday. We have been most impressed with the entire process provided by Golf Escapes.
The course at Vidago is quite magnificent and in excellent condition throughout! We played ´reasonably well´, thank you, on five beautiful mornings. It was very quiet and we luxuriated in the early light on these wonderful parkland fairways. (On Wed and Sat we enjoyed day-long horse rides in the Peneda-Geres National park) The staff in the caddy master´s office and the Club House Bar were welcoming and attentive, with time to chat.
We will shortly be thinking about our next golf holiday and we will be certain to contact you again at Golf Escapes.
JM, Preston (September 2017)
I would just like to say a big thank you to you and your team for organising our trip to Portugal. I can honestly say it’s been the best trip ever, all the group can't wait to plan next year’s trip back to Portugal with your company.
AK, Bedfordshire (September 2017)
The course was in great condition, the hotel staff were friendly and helpful and the food was fantastic.
The trip was excellent and everyone came away from it wanting more.
MH, Dublin (September 2017)
Have been busy since we returned, only getting the chance now to say how fab our holiday was.
It was amazing and we will definitely be going back next year…For Longer!!!!!
Praia d’el Rey was fantastic and our apartment was perfect (7D10). Right near the beach, spacious, well-appointed & near the pool.
The golf...all enjoyable, Royal Obidos was great. West Cliffs was amazing...we had mist for the front nine so looking forward to going back and seeing next year. Praia d’el Rey was easier than the other two, it was our first course to play...eased ourselves into it gently.
We hired our clubs from Blue SKY Golf Rental, they delivered them directly to Praia d’el Rey and collected them on Thursday.
To all Golf Escapes staff who were so friendly and easy to deal with, we will be back to book next year.
SD, Croydon (September 2017)
Thanks for your help, we had an excellent trip!
Alcanada, Son Muntaner and Son Gual were all excellent (even if our golf wasn't). Hotel was very good again - scrupulously clean and the quality of the breakfast seemed to have improved from last year (it was already pretty decent). Also worth mentioning that the local transfers from Janerbus went like clockwork. We had to mess them around a couple of times but they accommodated our changes without any fuss.
JP, East Sussex (September 2017)
Just wanted to say a big thank you to Golf Escapes for a wonderful holiday.
As always your organisation was perfect. No problems at all.
Here’s to next year!
GF, West Sussex (September 2017)
I can't thank you enough Jon for all your help over the past 18 difficult months for us, we really appreciate all the help you have given us.
I now have all the documentation & have printed it off.
Once again many thanks for all your help.
SH, United Kingdom (September 2017)
We all had a great time, the course, the staff, the food and hotel all great.
Looking at your website today.
AB, London (September 2017)
Thank you for your email, and for organising all aspects of the holiday for us. It was a really brilliant trip – the golf was excellent and the location exceeded everyone’s expectations massively. We are all in agreement that we are keen to do another trip next year and, given that this one was so well organised, will do it through Golf Escapes again.
At this stage, the next trip wouldn’t be until next September, so probably a bit premature to be organising anything.
However, in case you want to make a note of the details: the group size would increase to 16, I would remain the primary point of contact, we would want to go in early September again for 3 or 4 nights, we would be keen to do another destination in Europe (Spain, Portugal etc) but are also open to UK and Ireland. If you have any immediate thoughts/options which come to mind, please do let me know.
Winter trip options are being discussed, but at this stage not far enough advanced to take any further.
PW, Surrey (September 2017)
I’ve been speaking to a couple of the guys this morning and it sounds like a great time was had by all!
They said that Royal Obidos which was new to the group was stunning as was Praia D’el Rey! While Oitavos was ‘brutal’ due to strong winds! But still in great condition.
I see from your FB page some of your guys have been playing the new Praia D’el Rey course recently which looks pretty amazing! So we’d probably look at playing the three courses over the weekend.
I’ll have a look on your website and be in touch later in the year once Andy has secured the budget for 2018!
Once again – many thanks to you and the team for organising another great trip!
DS, East Sussex (September 2017)
AB, Manchester (September 2017)
The Camiral Hotel is utterly brilliant. We loved it. Great rooms, really funky hotel, lovely food and wines, but it was really the service that was as good as I can remember. Nothing was too much trouble and they remembered everything to the finest detail.
Hotel Camiral at PGA Catalunya Resort, Costa Brava
AL, Edinburgh (September 2017)
Just wanted to say how much we all enjoyed our time in the Algarve. Monte da Quinta suites were great and located perfectly for both Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo resorts. The golf was excellent - particularly the QdL courses. You can see that they are a level above VdL and seem to have had a great deal of investment.
Transfer company were top notch too - couldn't fault them at all - even helped us out by doing a supermarket run on the way back from golf one day.
I'll be back in touch in due course to start looking at a package for about the same time in 2019. We're thinking maybe Mallorca or the Canaries.
Monte da Quinta Suites, Algarve
PM, Hampshire (August 2017)
All your booking arrangements were fine, golf times good, dinner bookings only changed to 7.45pm in Morgans that was no problem.
We have had a great time, have not been to St Pierre for at least 5 years. The food in Morgans and Zest was excellent, both had a good atmosphere, so can recommend both. We played both courses, and so lucky with the weather, we had sunshine and it was very humid, all 3 days. Apparently the week before their weather had been wet and windy.The Old Course which we have played quite a few times, was in very good condition, and although they had tined/sanded the greens (which you had warned us) was not a problem. We really enjoyed ourselves, staff were really lovely. All your arrangements were first class. Marriott St Pierre Hotel & Country Club, England
PB, Canterbury (July 2017)
Thank you for all your help, great break and the golf wasn't too bad either.
Golf Hotel de Saint Saens, France
MP, Chorley (July 2017)
We had a great time at Carden Park Hotel.
This is our 2nd visit and we weren't disappointed.
Both courses were in good order, the greens were especially good, very true with a good pace.
The staff deserve a special mention, I had a mishap with my trolley and bag (it ran into a pond).
The concierge and reception staff couldn't do enough to help in drying all my kit out.
Nothing was too much trouble for them.
Without their help I wouldn't have been able to play on Saturday.
Carden Park Hotel, England
DF, Enfield (July 2017)
I would just like to say thank you for our golf trip to Tenerife in June which we booked though you, we will be looking to do the same as this year, next June.
Mediterranean Plaza, Tenerife
JM, Yorkshire (June 2017)
Just a quick note to thank you for arranging our holiday, it was thoroughly enjoyable and all went very smoothly. Even a couple of decent rounds in there (somewhere!!).
Thanks to you and your team for making all the arrangements and we will definitely book with you again.
Dom Pedro Vilamoura, Algarve
PD, Sevenoaks (June 2017)
Just got back from Portugal.
Many thanks for the excellent holiday you organised. You are very easy to deal with and your administration is excellent.
Perfect from start to finish. Great hotel and location in Cascais, good golf courses and all transfers worked perfectly.
Eusebio from Eagle Tours was especially helpful.
It was also telling that the Clubs that we played at also like dealing with Golf Escapes.
You guys must be doing it right to keep all parties satisfied!!
Look forward to booking with you next year.
Hotel Baia, Cascais, Lisbon
JS, North Wales (June 2017)
We went to Sandford Springs on Monday/Tuesday to use my prize from Golf Escapes.
The hotel and course were fantastic and we will go again, even though it's a 5-hour drive from our home in north Wales.
Thanks again and if you are at the Par 3 event this year, I look forward to saying hello.
Sandford Springs Hotel & Golf Club, England
CB, Hampshire (June 2017)
Hotel very good, nice pool excellent breakfast (if a little busy). Food sensibly priced. Only down side was 30 min walk into town. Taxi only €2 pp.
At Ballybunion a 1 handicapper scored 6 pts and lost 5 balls in 30 mph winds.
The shamrock pass courses were excellent value and too were very playable. Dooks on the other hand was great but very tough. I can see why Nick Faldo loved it.
Hotel Killarney, South West Ireland
RH, Wallington (June 2017)
Sorry for bit of a late response. I would just like to say thank you to you all at Golf Escapes for our recent hoilday to Majorca.
We all had a great time - weather, hotel, golf courses and all our transfers. It was pretty much faultless. Palma is a lovely city.
Will be in touch soon regarding next year.
From myself and the lads
JL, Solihull (June 2017)
Great holiday throughout and will definitely be booking again soon!
Thanks for all your help.
La Manga Club Principe Felipe, La Manga, Murcia
SF, Burnley (June 2017)
It all went very smoothly - transfers were prompt with courteous service ;hotel was lovely with very friendly staff and excellent golf facilities (courses were challenging but enjoyable to play and in great condition,and offered excellent views of the mountainous location).We will very likely return some time.
We have had several golfing holidays in Spain and Portugal (almost all with you) and this was the best golf resort so far. I'm sure we'll be in touch again next year!
La Cala Golf Resort, Costa del Sol
SL, Hazlemere (June 2017)
We had a wonderful time. All the lads agreed it was a great holiday.
Golf improved every day which is all you can ask for.
Will not hesitate to use Golf Escapes again as everything was very smooth and professional so many thanks from all of us,
Islantilla Golf Resort, Costa de la Luz Huelva
JW, Oxshott (June 2017)
Many thanks indeed. We had an outstanding weekend. 4 excellent courses [Aroeira II, Aroeira I, Troia & Quinta do Peru], perfect weather, lovely hotel, great food. Wish my golf could have been a little better though!
I was just dropping a note to Eusebio Lima of Eagle Travel Tours to thank him. This guy is the best golf local host I have experienced. An absolute saint who could not do enough for you. I am sure you know this already as you were out there last year, but I think it is worth re-emphasising. I will be strongly recommending Sesimbra as a golf venue to anyone who cares to listen!
Thanks also to you and your team for setting everything up. I will be recommending “golf escapes” to anyone and everyone who will listen.
Sesimbra Hotel and Spa, Lisbon
SD, East Northamptonshire (June 2017)
Everything went smoothly and we were treated like members. They did their utmost to get us buggies for every round which they did bar one round. Hotel and courses were second to none. I will definitely return in the future.
The Warwickshire, England
PSC, Nottingham (May 2017)
When I got back from golf today I found a message saying a parcel had been left behind one of our gates. Sure enough I found it and it was from you guys at Golf Escapes. So thank you very much for my new red shirt and the very nice Callaway golf balls. Much appreciated.
I would also like to thank all of you for a well organised golf holiday. My only complaint is the thunderstorms we experienced on what should have been our first golf day at the National on Friday. Bilgen from Golf & Wellness quickly cancelled and re-arranged it for the Sunday. Sunday is usually our rest day and some of the group did find 4 days of golf in a row a little much but seemed to accept that we can't control the weather.
We were also all upgraded to sea-view rooms as promised and they were a 'step up' from last year and much appreciated.
Bilgen looked after us very well last year so it was good to have her as our representative again. She is great and even managed to obtain a replacement hearing aid battery for one of our chaps who had left his spares at home! Excellent service.
Thanks again for another great golfing holiday.
I have already asked you to provide a costing for next year at Aphrodite Hills in Cyprus. I understand the hotel there is 5-star and we would want the usual 4 rounds of golf, ideally on 4 different courses but we are a little flexible on that. We would like to go earlier than this year, maybe week commencing 16th April.
I also spoke with some other golfers in Turkey who recommended we try Bulgaria. They mentioned 3 courses: Thracian Cliffs, BlackSeaRama and Lighthouse. I believe the nearby town is Balchik. Would you be able to quote for a 5 star hotel & 4 rounds in that area too?
Finally we would like a third quote for Turkey again but I don't think we can fly from East Midlands to Antalya until the end of April and I suspect the first flight out will be 26th April returning 3rd May. As much as we have enjoyed the Sueno we would like to try an alternative hotel of similar standard without increasing costs. What would you recommend?

The holiday was spot on, everything was perfect, talking of going next year already.

AC, Surrey (May 2017)
Thank you for arranging this trip so quickly, which is exactly the package
we were looking for. I have been using Golf Escapes, both individually and
for a group, since Jon first started and have always found the service
excellent, and this time it has been no different – thank you.
Thanks again for your help.
The Lake Resort, Vilamoura, Algarve
AM, Lugo, Spain (May 2017)
Everything has gone perfectly, both the courses and the hotels have been very good, the car rental and all the reservations have worked wonderfully and we have been very happy.
I will definitely be counting on you for our next golf vacation.
At Portstewart they told us that they would give you a return of £60 for the course conditions due to the Irish Open, we would like you to keep those 60 pounds as a sign of our appreciation for your services.
Again, thank you very much for your help.
The Anchor Complex/Burrendale Hotel, Country Club & Spa, Northern Ireland

Thanks so much to all at Golf Escapes, an absolutely fantastic golf holiday.
The room that you organised for us was brilliant with everything we needed, accessibility wise etc. Same one next year please.
Once again thanks.
Hotel Jardin Tecina, La Gomera, Canary Islands
JH, Edinburgh (May 2017)
The transfer company was absolutely wonderful...coming to courses when we finished ahead of schedule. They were very helpful and always dead on time.
Hotel Vila Gale in Lagos was very good.
We would strongly recommend that future golfers playing Boavista and Palmares.
Thanks again for all of your organisation.
We will be coming back to you soon for our 2018 trip.
Vila Gale Lagos, Algarve
RB, Somerset (May 2017)
Many thanks for your kind email, I can tell you that we all had a fabulous time! The courses were challenging but super, we all loved them! The hotel location and having rooms with balconies facing the harbour were just idyllic! The transport to and from the airport and the courses was clean and efficient, and very well organised.
I would like to send a major thank you to your team, I am confident that if we go again next year then we will certainly use your services.
Vila Gale Marina, Vilamoura
MD, Blackpool (May 2017)
We had a fantastic holiday from start till finish, best holiday we have been on.
The Regnum is a superb hotel with first class service, we will definitely be returning.
Thanks for sorting out a great trip.

IS, Oxfordshire (May 2017)
Our time at Meon Valley went swimmingly and all the girls had a great time. We thought the course was lovely and I gradually remembered the holes as I came to them - there are some good ones at Meon Valley. The hotel was great and 'did exactly what it said on the tin’. All the staff were extremely helpful and the little extras of the coffee and Danish to start and sandwiches and chips (+ tea and coffee which was unexpected) were perfect.
Thank you so much for organising the whole weekend. Now the ladies want another one next year!! I will be in touch!
Marriott Meon Valley Hotel & Country Club, England
AF, Bedford (May 2017)
I wish to advise you that we had a great time, the hotel was brilliant and the staff there couldn't do enough for you, especially the ones on reception.
La Finca was a nice course.
Las Ramblas was different, my mate played reasonably well that day and got round without losing a ball (which was met with scepticism by friends back home when we told them).
Villamartin was a nice course, but the greens were like glass, so putting was very interesting.
As for future trips we will certainly be looking at your website again, as we would highly recommend your services as everything went very smoothly, so many grateful thanks are due to you and the company for the great package you put together.
La Finca Hotel Golf & Spa Resort, Costa Blanca
KS, Tyne & Wear (May 2017)
Thanks for the email, a good time was had by all, as per usual the trip, transfers, hotel and golf went like clockwork.
Thanks again, when we decide what we will be doing next year I will gave no hesitation in giving you a call.
Real Bellavista Hotel & Spa, Algarve
MB, Somerset (May 2017)
Just got back from Cyprus and pleased to report that we had a wonderful time.
All of the arrangements were spot on and we were very impressed by Amber Voyage who provided all the transfers.
The hotel and golf courses were all marvellous.
Thanks for organising a wonderful trip – now looking forward to our next holiday with you in September.
Olympic Lagoon Hotel, Cyprus
FM, Stocksbridge (May 2017)
Yes we have returned safely from our trip to the K Club in Ireland booked through Golf escapes. We had a fantastic trip which exceeded all expectations. We played The Smurfitt course twice and the Ryder Cup course once. Both courses were a real challenge and hugely enjoyable – probably the best we’ve played and we have played all over the world. The hotel and gardens were beautiful and the staff were brilliant. Thank you for organising a most memorable trip. It is one which will live in the memory.
The K Club Hotel, Ireland
RP, West Midlands (May 2017)
This is just a note in response to the above to say thank you for your arrangements on our 10 day golfing holiday to Melia Atlantico.
Hotel transfer; Faro to Atlantico there and return went like clockwork as did all Golf Club bookings.
The golf course at Quinta do Vale was in superb condition and proved a real challenge in a high wind and lack of detailed local knowledge as to exactly where and how far the hazards were.
A stream of home Club "two balls" started behind us, so after letting one pair through we decided to split our four-ball into two two-balls which kept the pressure off.
Golf at Castro Marim was Millionaire golf. We hardly saw anyone else. Wonderful views, sunny weather and one or two days with a testing wind on some holes.
We had a super holiday thanks to your superb organisation!
Melia Atlantico Isla Canela, Huelva, Spain
RR, Swansea (May 2017)
Thanks, again, for you and your colleagues’ efforts in arranging (and rearranging) such a well-organised trip. I’m sure we’ll be in touch for future golf holidays.

Had a great trip. Each and every player had a wonderful time. All commented on the efficiency of all the transfers and all of them absolutely loved all 3 golf courses. (Vale do Lobo Royal, Pine Cliffs & Vale do Lobo Ocean)
They want to know if we're going again next year! Thanks for all your efforts.

BA, Staffordshire (May 2017)
We have just come back from Spain after playing five rounds of golf in 6 days, all arranged by Jon Ruben through Golf Escapes.
All nine players could not fault a thing. All transfers and 'pick ups' were on time and nothing was too much trouble.
The hotel Precise El Rompido was an excellent choice, the food was great. Both golf courses played very well considering the amount of people there.
This trip was so good, we have started planning our next.

NM, London (May 2017)
We had a lovely time, everyone enjoyed the golf. The courses were well maintained and the venue was excellent.
All the staff looked after us well. We also managed to check in our rooms in the mornings.
Very good recommendation, I had text messages from all my players on an excellent choice of venue and courses.
Sandford Springs Hotel & Golf Club, England
DS, West Sussex (May 2017)
Just like to say we had a fantastic break. The deal was great with the free food and drink in the evening. Accommodation inside was very spacious and well spec’d. The Bom Successo resort certainly provided all we needed and it worked really well for us. It is slightly remote but to be honest that kept us with some reasonable amount of sleep and we were happy to camp out in the club house who were very hospitable and treated us very well.
The golf courses were stunning. Praia d'el Rey was probably the best course I have played, especially with those fantastic views on the back 9. Royal Obidos was of equal standard with great views from the club house.
Bom Sucesso golf course was for me a very strong 3rdif not joint second. Overall a great trio of courses which off the backs were a great challenge.
Eagle tours were very good as well. Nice surprise with the cool box of beers and cheese and ham rolls, sky tv and wifi on the mini bus. If Carlsberg did transfers..!
We all had a brilliant time and it felt like we got good value, 2018 is already on peoples mind. All-inclusive does keep it simple and easy which was great. I think we’d all be happy to do same deal again to be honest but good to find out what other options there are for next year.
Bom Sucesso Resort, Obidos
EG, London (May 2017)
Just on the way to the office after an excellent stay at Foxhills - thank you again for all your help in organising/venue selection etc.
In terms of feedback it's really positive...
- Having a Par 3 on site was a big win. Whilst we planned to play Monday evening we actually went out Monday first thing which blew away the cobwebs of the night before and built an appetite for breakfast!
- Great to play two different courses. Think Longcross is indeed a bit nicer than the Bernard Hunt, though the latter certainly no slouch. Quite different challenges as suggested previously.
- As a resort everything was slick re check in/out. We didn't have to waste any time on 'admin' which was awesome as meant we could really just focus on enjoying our time there.
All in all we had a fantastic time and feedback I got from the group was of a set of very happy campers. We will certainly look to do another trip either later this year or similar time next so please get thinking cap on for anything suitable!
Foxhills Club & Resort, England
PV, Purley (May 2017)
The courses were all good, with Secret Valley being one of the best courses in terms of design and condition I have ever played.
The hotel was outstanding, food and rooms were all excellent and staff were exceptional. Transport was good and very efficient too.
Thanks for organising so well, and I would have no hesitation recommending this trip or your firm again.
Thanos Hotel Almyra, Cyprus
BS, Essex (May 2017)
We had a wonderful few days. The hotel is quaint, the room was of a good size, with huge and very modern bathroom. Our room looked over the courtyard.
The golf course was challenging but most enjoyable. Very beautiful scenery and peacefully quiet.
The breakfasts were very filling with a vast choice and such a great outlook over the course and lake.
The A la carte had great meals which were very tasty. The view was again awesome with the setting sun and the golfers playing into the 18th green.
All round a good and enjoyable Golf Escape.
Hellidon Lakes Golf & Spa Hotel, England
RR, Swansea (May 2017)
We had an enjoyable trip, thanks, despite the unusually bad weather for that part of the world. At least we managed to play Calanova and Mijas Los Olivos in decent weather, so the trip was far from wasted.
May I start by complimenting Kim and Rachel for their help in trying to rearrange things for us, so that we could make the most of the trip after 2 of the days of golf had to be written-off due to rain/flooding. They did all they possibly could to help and it was much appreciated by the group.
I’d also like to pass on praise for the services of Simply Shuttles. The transport was punctual, the drivers courteous and helpful and the vehicles were of the highest possible standard. We couldn’t have asked for better.

RT, Worcestershire (May 2017)
Got back home on Tuesday after a brilliant golf break, thank You for your excellent organisation.
I'm not on Facebook but I would just like to say that everything went expertly to plan, except for gale force winds on the first day when playing Laguna.
The golf courses, tee-times, pick-ups, hotel, everything was superb.
Many Thanks to you and the team at Golf Escapes, we will be in contact to sort out next year’s trip later in the year.

We had four “new comers” on the trip this year and they were all astounded by the quality of the golf and accommodation provided.
I have always been impressed with the support you have given us over the last six years.
This year I agreed to make the arrangements but for one year only. This isn’t written in stone but, may I just thank you all.
It’s been a delight.
Sirene Belek Hotel, Belek
PM, Hants (April 2017)
The Grove Hotel and golf certainly deserves its 5 star rating. The staff were all fabulous, making us feel very special. All your arrangements were spot on, so thank you for that, well done.
Our room was over the entrance but was so quiet. Collettes restaurant was good, next night in The Glasshouse - buffet was fabulous, so much choice and better atmosphere, so a positive for us.
Golf was great, buggies were all pre-booked, thank you. Weather was cold in the morning, but warmed up later. The course was well presented, greens very fast!
Anyway Claire, all that you arranged was great, overall we had a fabulous time, both of us would have no hesitation in contacting you for future UK trips.
The Grove Hotel, England
SW, Nottingham (April 2017)
The weather was very kind to us on all three days, and I came away with being on the winning 4 ball team every day. didn’t manage to win any particular days comps but played reasonably well to my handicap. The lads all enjoyed the weekend:- Jury’s Inn Hotel in Oxford – Excellent in all aspects, would recommend strongly that you accommodate golfers there. Modern, clean, friendly staff, great breakfasts and a good small spa area.
- The Oxfordshire Golf Club – Wow, wow, wow. We all agreed that it was the best Golf Course any of us have played in the UK. The club house was stunning, pro shop friendly and helpful, but the course itself was just out of this world. All aspects of the course were outstanding, the layout, fairways/bunker/green conditions – the best. I would travel to this course from Nottingham to play it at anytime.
-Magnolia Park Golf Club– It couldn’t compare with the previous days golf, but a decent steady course. Some interesting holes, long and challenging course. A better than average course, but without much effort could become much better.
- Golf Escapes – Great to deal with, thank you Claire for your good service. Vouchers all worked well.
I would certainly use Golf Escapes in the future for any upcoming golf trips.
DJ, Cheshire (April 2017)
The guys had asked me to thank you arranging another great holiday.
We had a great time with 3 courses but the Vale Do Lobo Ocean course was stunning.
I am sure we will be in touch later in the year looking for something for 2018!
Real Bellavista Hotel & Spa, Algarve
MP, Manchester (April 2017)
The trip was excellent thank you. I think we chose an excellent weekend.
I didn't play as well as I would have liked and the courses were both tough in their own ways.
Everything ran very smoothly when we got there so thank you for all your help.
I have been asked to look at organising another at some point but need time to recover first.
Carden Park Hotel, England
AM, Bellshill (April 2017)
All the boys thoroughly enjoyed our trip and everything was first class. From accommodation to the golf courses and even the weather. We will not hesitate in using Golf Escapes for our next break away and hopefully you'll hear from us soon. Once again, the whole experience was first class.
Castro Marim Golf Resort, Algarve
AF, Eastbourne (April 2017)
Our trip was fantastic thank you. We had brilliant weather throughout the three days we spent at Stoke by Nayland. The hotel and facilities were exemplary and the golf courses were amongst some of the best we have played on. Upon leaving the complex we both decided that it is somewhere that we would definitely want to visit again in the future but would love to play abroad for our next golf trip. Thank you for organising such a good trip, we really had no complaints and it was really fantastic value for money.
Stoke by Nayland Hotel Golf & Spa, England
IW, Bedworth (April 2017)
Excellent few days’ golf and the weather stayed pretty good, sun and blue skies Friday with rain only on holes 1 & 2 Saturday.
Hotel, food & drink was excellent too, so pass on my best wishes to them, all staff were very helpful.
Thank you for your help to organise and I'll be sure to be in touch again in the future.
Mottram Hall, England
CW, Tadley (March 2017)
May I thank your team for a very cost effective and enjoyable trip to Cascais. Everything went off really well apart from the weather.
All the courses were in pretty good condition. Penha Longa was the star, the service and people were a delight, especially Eusebio. He was marvellous and certainly went above and beyond what you would expect.
A credit to your company.
All round a successful trip and thanks to you and all your staff.

Ramside Hall Hotel, England
CL, Faringdon (March 2017)
I on behalf of our party of 12 would like to thank in particular Stuart Ridley and Kim Pollard of Golf Escapes for all the organisation of our recent trip to Spain.
The transfers from the airport and to and from the golf courses by Simply-Shuttles were absolutely brilliant, on time every day and pleasant drivers.
The start times for the golf and pick up times worked out very well. We hadvery bad weather on the last day which meant we were unable to play but Golf Escapes gave us a refund on the green fees with no hassle and very prompt payment to us.
Very many thanks and we will definitely use you again for our next trip.
Las Palmeras, Costa del Sol
RE, Sittingbourne (March 2017)
Many thanks for the below.
We had a great holiday thanks, was pretty ill at the start and my misses got a dose of it towards the end but apart from that was superb.
The hotel Conrad was incredible, will certainly be re-booking again in the near future through yourselves.
Cheers and thanks for the professional support.
Conrad Algarve, Quinta do Lago
LV, Thatcham (March 2017)
As per normal excellent service from Golf Escapes and your guys in Belek, couldn’t fault anything from start to finish (even the weather was with us). Please pass on our thanks to Golf and Wellness for the excellent service they provided.
We will be back in touch shortly.

I just wanted to say a big thanks for your recommendation of El Rompido.
The resort is fantastic, matched by both golf courses. The transfers worked perfectly.
All in all we've had a great time & may well be looking to go back next year.
We will be looking to book up for next year at some point over the next couple of months so I will be in touch then to see what you can offer.

SS, Guernsey (March 2017)
Just wanted to say what a fabulous place this is, we had a really great time and would recommend it to anyone. Beautiful hotel, fantastic pools and spa and the food was absolutely superb. The courses were extremely well kept and definitely not easy!
Pete and I would love to go back sometime and would be grateful if you could let us know if they have any special offers as it is rather expensive but very well worth the money.
Many thanks for organising another great holiday.
Sheraton Gran Canaria Salobre Golf Resort, Gran Canaria
CN, Withycombe (March 2017)
Thanks for arranging the trip, very easy and hassle free. All transfers (from the airport and to all the courses) and hotel booking went without a hitch.
We had a great trip, courses were great, and the transfers to and from the courses were on time and the drivers very helpful. Would highly recommend the hotel as well, helpful staff and nice rooms.
Will definitely book through Golf Escapes next time.
Vik Gran Hotel, Costa del Sol
CB, Hampshire (February 2017)
Our weekend was exceptional value. The hotel and spa were both first class, as was the service provided by all the staff.
The golf course was great too with some excellent holes, however, what made it was the quality of the greens at this time of year. They were quick and true and the course was well kept.
Bicester Hotel, Golf & Spa, Bicester, England

Dubai - Golf only
GP, West Midlands (January 2017)
Just to let you know everything went well (though it was ridiculously cold on Wed 18th). However given that the rest of Spain had snow I think we were fortunate to be on the Costa del Sol. One immediate point to make is just how efficient throughout the transfer company Simply Shuttles were. They could not be faulted in any respect.
As for the Golf Courses it is fair to say they may have deserved better Golfers than us! Torrequebrada (Tue 17th) is a fantastic course, as is Mijas Los Olivos (played on Sat 14th). We also enjoyed playing both Lauro (Sun 15th) which is high up in the hills and the incredibly scenic El Chapparel (Wed 18th) although warmer weather on that day would have been appreciated!! As for 'Golf Escapes' all I can say is that the company has been excellent from my initial phone enquiry last summer to being dropped off back at the Airport. Not only has the organization has been flawless, but the communication throughout by both email and phone was 'spot on' especially when minor changes had to be made. When we make plans for our next Golf holiday you can be assured 'Golf Escapes' will be the first company we look at.
Mac Puerto Marina, Costa del Sol, Spain
GW, Bishop's Stortford (January 2017)
I would like to thank you for organising yet another great golf holiday for me and my friends.
We had a great time in Tenerife and all of your arrangements worked perfectly.
The hotel was very good and we all thought it was the best we have stayed in since we started having golf holidays 17 years ago.
Golf der Sur has improved massively since we last played there, so thanks for changing my mind on this course.
Looking forward to our next Golf Escapes golfing experience in April (my son's 30th birthday event).
Dream Noelia Sur, Tenerife
VK, Finland (November 2016)

Aphrodite Hills Residences, South Cyprus
RB, USA (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
DJ, Bangor (October 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
LS, Thornaby (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
RB, Bracknell (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.

Palmasol, Costa del Sol
RC, Reigate (October2016)
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
MP, Bristol (October 2016)

Our holiday arrangements worked out in every aspect.
The transport to and from hotel was punctual and helpful. Tee times were all met on time and the courses were in good condition.

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 a quick note to thank everyone at golf-escapes for organising such a great holiday in Portugal for our family.

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.
Vik Gran Hotel, Mijas
CB, Hampshire (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.
Murphys Guesthouse, Southern Ireland
MA, Beverley (June 2016)
Thoroughly enjoyable and the service from Golf Escapes was excellent.
Hotel Princesa Playa, Costa del Sol
JP, Scotland (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!
Crowne Plaza Vilamoura, Algarve
RG, Radlett (June 2016)
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,
AR, Somerset (June 2016)

Hotel Plaza Beach, Majorca
MM, Dorset (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
...and there you have it! Our feedback speaks for itself!
