Gary has played most of the top courses in the country, so we feel well qualified to organise your golfing holiday. We can book your Tee time, arrange equipment hire, organise transportation, book you a lesson or a private coach for a day, or a week, but at the same time it would also be our pleasure just point you in the right direction for a day on the driving range. You will have so many options that you’ll soon realise it’s a golfers paradise here, and you’ll be booking your return trip soon. You may even get to play a round or two with your host!
