Seth Beers Golf Holiday Scotland TestimonialSeth & Steve Beers, USA

Thank you Neil for setting up a wonderful golf vacation in Scotland for Seth & I. The personal attention you gave us along with all your little helpful tips made for a wonderful experience. We were very happy that with your help we decided to go up and play at Cruden Bay too ... that was terrific. You also did a splendid job with the weather and I've told our friends that if they use your company you can "guarantee" them a similar weather experience!


Darrell Bergeson Golf Vacation Scotland TestimonialDarrell Bergeson, South Africa

On behalf of our South Africa group I would like to thank you for a great tour. The weather bar the last day was superb! The guys all had a fantastic time and enjoyed the golf and Kingsbarns gets top marks. Carnoustie was a massive challenge and a most fitting way to end the tour.


Pete Breier Golf Holiday Scotland TestimonialPete Breier, USA

Neil, what a great trip! Many thanks for arranging the golf at Fortrose, St Andrews and Carnoustie, with fly fishing, transportation, dinner reservations and accommodations. Everything was 1st class and we immensely enjoyed our week in beautiful Scotland and our time went with you. Many thanks for hosting us and arranging for my parents to join us and then stay on in London and Rome.

Mark Collier Golf Vacation Scotland TestimonialMark Collier, Reed & Associates, Florida, USA

I am privileged to have participated in the golf trip to Scoltand. Personal presence and detailed co-ordination provided by you gentlemen made the experience far exceed my expectations. The golf courses were great, as was the weather, but your personal and direct involvement each step of the way made the memory much more special. My favourite golf course was Turnberry and my second favourite was Balcomie Links. All the courses were memorable. Again, your personal touch and friendship made this an experience of a lifetime for me. Many, many thanks to you and I look forward to seeing you again.


Richard Connelly Golf Tour Scotland TestimonialRichard & Wendy Connelly, Canada

We are 4 couples who have been doing small golf tours for 20 years. To celebrate this milestone we booked a week in Scotland with Neil at Scot Golf Travel. We wish you much success in the future and hope our paths cross again.


Marc De Baptiste, ARA, Florida

It was a very well organised golf tour to Scotland. The golf, food and other events were wonderful. I especially enjoyed the Scottish Festival. If you guys can maintain the control of the weather you will continue to flourish beyond the wildest dreams. Great job Neil.


Marc and Kathy Festa Golf Tour Scotland TestimonialMarc and Kathy Festa, Istanbul, Turkey

To all the team, Kathy and I would like to take the time to say thank you for the "Trip of our Life". It would have been easy to just give us our itinerary and let us go. The things you booked and the mystique of The Old Course would have been enough. But you did not. There was someone checking in with us to make sure everything was ok and guide us along the way. It made it personal and friendly. The planned itinerary was well thought out and not overly busy. It allowed us to enjoy and take in the full breath of Scotland and enjoy what we love the most, golf. We will talk about and enjoy our trip to Scotland for many years to come. Saying thank you is not enough, hoever they are the words that keep coming to my head every time we think about our trip. So thank you many many times.


Loy Forster

Neil, thank you so much for your help in making our stay in St Andrews so wonderful. It was definitely the highlight of my vacation. I hope I can make it back there in a few years and spend several more days in Scotland. What a wonderful corner of the earth! It was one of the best trips of my life. Dan and I enjoyed your company as well as Ron and Jim's during the last round of golf.


Mark Fuller, President, De Paul Organisation, New York

I wanted to commend you on a fabulous trip, Neil. Iw was truly an experience of a lifetime. The attention to detail really makes the difference. You guys were great.


Hemenway-testimonialDoug Hemenway, USA

Well you did us a big favour that Ron, Tess and I won't soon forget. We played on the last group of they day. Finished at dusk and had a great time on The Old Course - the Road Hole being an exception! Had a lovely dinner afterwards and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We are running, but thank you Andy, probably wouldn't have made the effort if you hadn't suggested these gentlemen. It was terrific!


Phillipe Jouve Golf Travel Scotland TestimonialPhillipe Jouve, France

We arrived safely now it's time to go back to work. But before, I want to thank you again for this fantastic golf travel and for your help through this week. It was a dream for us. We enjoyed hotels and all golf courses, furthermore the weather was perfect. thank you again for the clubhouse visit in St Andrews, it was a very special moment for us. I hope that we'll come back and play golf again, especially on The Old Course. Many thanks again for all.


Steve Junken Scottish Golf Experience TestimonialSteve Junken, Indiana, USA

Neil just a note to say thank you for your part in arranging our golf experience and for seeing to it that we had good weather. I'm already planning to return next year with the whole family and will look forward to more good golf and good fun.


Peter Kesel, USA

My dad and I had a wonderful trip, and got to Prestwick in fine fashion, which was also very nice. We had an amazing time at Troon, our caddies were fantastic, Prestwick was neat, and could have been just amazing but simply excellent. I think we both thought that Troon was the best course, but oddly, I remember the most about The Old Course. It was a "Trip of a Lifetime" and I thank you so much.


Rich McCarey Golf Vacation TestimonialRich McCarey, Senior Vice President, Comerica Bank, Florida, USA

I cannot express what a fantastic time I had. I now know what it feels like to be "Scottish Royalty".


John Mcintyre Golf Holiday Scotland TestimonialJohn Mcintyre, Scotland

The actual golf experience was for us unforgettable, with well organised tee times, arrive early to give yourself a chance to soak up the atmosphere while you check in before the start of your round thereby enhancing the whole St Andrews stay. The weather was in our favour which helps, both Courses were in very good condition, as always, and while we declined the use of a caddie having previously walked the Course, perhaps visitors may wish to consider at least One local Caddie between them as they can be invaluable in avoiding the many bunkers on The Old Course, some can be Hell, and the breaks on the greens are not always easy to read, thankfully for our opponents, so it may be something to allow for to enhance the package. Overall we all agreed that our Scot Golf Travel package with Neil proved to be something we will ALL remember for the rest of our Golfing lives. Continue the good work Neil.


Jes Bech Muller Scottish Golf Holiday TestimonialJes Bech Muller, Denmark

We were very happy with your planning of golf transportation etc., as well as the attention from your staff at the different courses. Thanks to Neil for the extra last minute round on The Old Course. You are in good hands when you book with Neil at Scot Golf Travel Vacations. Best Wishes.


Johannes Nermo Scottish Group Golf Holiday TestimonialJohannes Nermo, Nermo Golf Hotel, Norway

Neil, thank you again for arranging our trip to Scotland. We really had a great time with Excellent Service and Great Golfing Locations. Our goal of playing all of the top 100 ranked courses in Britain is under way and we will use your services again for some of the others.


Mike Paquette Golf Vacation Scotland TestimonialMike Paquette, Canada

Neil, thank you for arranging our Trip to Scotland. We really had a fabulous time and I am already making plans to come over to Scotland again.


Jon Preble Golf Vacation Scotland TestimonialJon Preble, USA

Our trip was not only memorable, but very well planned and coordinated as well. Than you for taking the time to meet with us in St Andrews and Edinburgh. I forwarded your info to a few of my friends, explaining to them that you not only provided excellent golf packages, but also a true Scottish golfing experience. Thank you again for the experience.


Chuck Preble Golf Vacation Scotland TestimonialChuck Preble, USA

Although we are now settled back into our normal daily life, the wonderful golfing trip that we had in Scotland is still with us. It was a marvellous trip, well organised without any hitches. Each course presented us with its own challenges and character which made our trip all the more enjoyable. I was sorry that I did not get to play Ailsa but then Jon and Ed both experienced an event that surely is not normal in Scotland. After nine holes, the course was closed due to inclement weather. Jon and Ed join me in thanking you and your staff for organising the trip and seeing that all details were in place. Meeting you at St Andrews gave us your personal touch which was greatly appreciated. We will never forget. I will have no problem in recommending the services of Neil and Scot Golf Travel Tours.


Stuart Rappaport Golf Tour Scotland TestimonialStuart Rappaport

It was just perfect. Your usual great job. Indigo very nice and well located. 1860 club worth every penny. Talk to you about next year soon. Thank you again.


Dan Reeve Irish Golf Tour TestimonialDan Reeve, Managing Director, Horsley Bridge Partners, California, USA

In short, the trip was wonderful, Alistair (the driver and guide) was excellent. He was attentive, timely cordial and courteous. We couldn't have asked for anyone better. The bus was extremely comfortable - a real luxury to have a vehicle that size with only the 4 of us. The hotels were good. The Mont Clare in Dublin was a little noisy but the rooms were perfectly adequate. The Lahinch Golf and Leisure Hotel had a little rough edge on it because it appears brand new and they are still trying to get a few things done. But, the rooms were very comfortable and suite arrangement was very nice. The Portmarnock was absolutely excellent. I wish I had had more time to spend there. First rate hotel all the way.

The courses we played were excellent. I think the Portmarnock was under some repair due to damage of a fungus of some sort on the turf, so I'm sure it wasn't up to its usual standards. But I can only say that the other courses were beautiful, challenging and enjoyable. Your arrangements went without problem. All vouchers were accepted without second thoughts. We were treated very well by every course. Your ability to secure me a buggy at 4 of the courses was much appreciated. It probably made the difference of my being able to play all of the courses as opposed to having to take a day or two off.

Overall, I was very pleased with the entire experience. You were very helpful and extremely responsive to our requests, even though one or tow of them might have been a little over the top. Our experience with your organisation has been first rate and I would not hesitate to call you again for future needs. The surprise of having you show up at the Royal Dublin and spend time with us was unexpected and much enjoyed. You went the extra mile on that one. Thanks so much. Again thanks so much for all you did to make our trip so memorable. It was something none of us will soon forget.


Stotz-testimonialWendy & Reg Stotz, Canada

Hi Neil, we arrived home safe and sound after a wonderful vacation. We would love to do it again someday and again thank you for everything.



Joanne Taroli Golf Tour Scotland and Ireland TestimonialJoanne Taroli,

You and your peers had set up a fantastic journey for us, much appreciated. The experience was phenomenal. So many wonderful memories and happy ones. Many thanks to all who helped make our stay in St Andrews and Dublin a marvellous adventure.


Dennis Tesnow Golf Vacation Scotland TestimonialDennis Tesnow, USA

Hi Neil, you did a wonderful job putting everything together for us. The accommodations were wonderful, very impressive. Your personal attention to our needs was great. I have already told several people of your business to have them call you and arrange their trip. We certainly hope to return to Scotland again to play more courses, and to see more of your beautiful country. I will always keep in touch and hope to again use your services in future. Thank you again for arranging such a lovely holiday for us.


Mr & Mrs Uccellini and Mrs & Mrs Boardman Golf Tour TestimonialMr & Mrs Uccellini and Mrs & Mrs Boardman

First let me say what a wonderful time we had - Rick, Martha, Sheila and I had a most wonderful trip; highlights included the R&A club tour, the golf package, St Andrews Old Course and the scenic views and strong winds at North Berwick. Rick and I getting exhausted trying to keep up with our caddies; truly one of the highlights had to be Allan, our driver, he truly went the extra mile on our behalf, even caddying for me when one of the caddies walked of the course at North Berwick, without him the trip would have included too much travel between venues, too many venue changes and too much luggage transport, he was truly magnificent! Thanks to everyone for a most wonderful tour.


Dave Varga Golf Vacation Scotland TestimonialDave Varga, Aurora, Ontario, Canada

Many thanks to you Neil for your efforts in setting up our golf vacation in Scotland. It went so well, and we had such a good time, that I have already passed your name on to others here at home and I will not hesitate to recommend your tour company to anyone looking for a golfing vacations in the UK. Your attention to detail ensured that we did everything we wanted to, and still had enough downtime between events to relax and enjoy ourselves. Having a driver and van was essential, and our driver in particular was excellent. Paul was professional, very friendly, very funny and was above and beyond our expectations and Karensa and Michael were excellent hosts, not to mention the food at the Royal Dornoch - Michael is a fantastic chef. St Andrews, The Old Course and The Rusacks were everything we were expecting them to be thank you for that. The kilt hire in St Andrews was also a great idea - we have some great pics, and the kilts went over really well in the Dunvegan. Meeting you (and John) in St Andrews, then you again at the Stirling Albion Football match with the guys that set it all up made it even better. To sum it up our driver was excellent, the golf courses were incredible, the weather was perfect (it almost didn't rain in our 9 days: not sure how you did that, but well done!) and the accommodations were fantastic. The memories of this trip will last a lifetime.


Mike Walsh Golf Vacation Scotland TestimonialMike Walsh

I do want to tell you we had a glorious time. The hotel accommodations were superior and the golf was truly memorable. Castle Stuart was certainly my favourite course. The majestic views coupled with the pristine condition of the course was really a shock to our systems given what I had expected to see in Scotland. It didn't hurt that the weather continued to co-operate. If that course could make arrangements with a local hotel a grand trip would be to stay there. Play that course 2 / 3 times then try some other local beauties. Again my thanks for making what we thought would be a "Once in a Lifetime Trip" so wonderful and memorable. I am sure we will be in touch in the future for a return engagement. Oh and thanks for the beautiful pictures from number 1 tee at The Old Course. What a nice touch.


Tim Zado, Director of Golf Operations, Silvertip Resort, Alberta, Canada

Neil, I would like to thank you for your time and your kindness when my girlfriend Andrea and I came to visit from Canada. Our visit to Scotland was wonderful and I will always remember the hospitality you showed during our time in St Andrews. In my many years of travelling I have never before felt so welcome as I did when you toured us around. Thank you so much.
