Bethany Anderson, USA Tour Group
Thank you, the actual "tour" portion was lovely, just wish it could have been a bit longer! Our teams loved Loch Ness and the Cruise, the storyteller and lunch were absolutely fabulous. Thank you for all your help.
Gerald Biondo, Lecesse Group, Florida, USA
Scotland is a wonderful place and you showed us the very best that it has to offer. The accommodations, food and travel were all first-rate. It was a an incredible trip ... the accommodation and meals were incredible and the golf courses everything they were touted to be. Our bus driver was a delight and kept us both informed and entertained. I would rate the trip a 10.
Lindsay Brown, Australia
We have all settled into the routine back here with plenty of fond memories thanks for all your help. We had a great time at the Claymore. The food was excellent and drink as well. All aspects went according to plan. The Irish leg of our Tour also went well. We could only manage to binge every second night must be getting old! All the lads send their regards. We are already talking about planning the next trip.
Jeff Crevolin, Canada
Just arrived back home. That was one hell of a golf trip Neil. Rave reviews pouring in from everyone so thank you for all your hard work and effort to make it such a memorable journey for the twelve of us. I'm going to start planning my return trip as soon as possible!
Jim Irwin, Doug Group, Canada
Neil I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for all the attention you showed us on our trip to Scotland. There is never a dull minute when you travel with the Doig's! Quite often when you are looking forward to a trip it never lives up to your expectations, this trip was not the case!! It was everything I expected and more. You guys had a lot to do with that. I hope we see you over here on this side of the ocean soon and make sure to look us up so we can show you some Canadian hospitality, I am sure we will see you again in Scotland for another trip some day.
Stan Elwell, USA
Neil, our group still talks about the five golf courses you arranged for us to play during our eight day visit to Scotland in July. It seemed as if each one was better than the day before and this could only have happened with your suggestions and planning. The travelling from one course to the next with some sight-=seeing en-route was also a special treat. Of course the excellent weather, your accommodating driver and the comfortable coach helped some here. All in all ours was a trip most golfers only dream about.
Mike Ertel Group
Epic trip and what a great group. Thanks to everyone in our group for making the trip to Scotland, it did not disappoint and the weather gods were smiling favourably on us all. This will be hard to top, Great Memories and Great Buddies ...
Agreed, What a fantastic trip and a quality group, it was a privilege to be part of it all. thank you everyone especially Mikey
Thanks for a great golf trip and special kudos to Mike for organising it every step of of the way. Looking forward to the photos
Thank you Mike for inviting me on such a special trip. Trip of a Lifetime with many memories and tons of laughs!! Great Job. First Class.
Zach Fuller, Bonadio Group
It was an unbelievable, once in a lifetime experience. Every single aspect about the trip was incredible. I can't wait to go back and play again.
I want to thank you for the great trip agenda you put together for us during our holiday in Scotland and Ireland. The hotels you picked wre great, starting with Rusacks. The Bonham in Edinburgh, although nondescript from the outside, was actually very charming. And kudos to the restaurant in the hotel. Fabulous meals and great wine selection. The hotel in Portmarnock was great and we are all still talking about the wonderful shower heads they have in their rooms. Restaurants in the area were great. King Sitrick and Seabank Bistro. The Castlerosse hotel waa charming with a great view of the leakes. This was probably a little disappointing in that the rooms did not do the view justice, but the people in the hotel were very nice, especially Danny the GM. We had 2 great meals in Killarney and Bricin. As for the golf ... Fantastic. The 3 courses you picked in Scotland couldn't have been any better. We all thought Carnoustie was the best of the entire lot as it was hard enough but fair, (we also had a lovely day with the wind down quite a bit). The Irish course just plain kicTked our butts! The island was the best of the lot on the East Coast of Ireland but very difficult if you tended to spray the ball. Quite a challenging day for yours truly.
My favourite Irish course and second only to Carnoustie was Ballybunion. What a fantastic last day of golf for all of us. The great views and very difficult back nine. Tralee was also a close second to the Irish courses. We took hundreds of pictures to remember the great time we had. I will definitely pass on your name and company to other American's looking for a great golf holiday in Britain and Ireland. Thanks again for your assistance and friendship during this trip of a lifetime. Hopefully we can have a repeat performance in a year or two.
Richard Graham, Ontario, Canada
My friends and I have been back from Scotland for a few weeks and have had time to reflect on our great trip. I wonder if Neil gets bored of hearing how great people's experiences were or that they loved The Old Course etc. I can only imagine how it must feel every week to be able to plan and be part of peoples "Once in A Life Time" adventures. To Neil and his cast of characters. Words are tough to capture the experience we had travelling through Scotland in October. It was the most amazing trip I have ever been on. When everything you plan comes together perfectly and the weather in Scotland turns sunny in October for 10 straight days ... Something amazing was going on! The golf was the one part I knew was going to be amazing and it was!!! The experiences of golfing with a caddie to the stunning views from the coastal courses (Royal Dornoch is a a must), being met every day in St Andrews for breakfast and hearing the many golf stories ... it was a golfers dream and will last forever in pictures and my memories... Teeing up on One at The Old Course can't be put into words ... I've never been so nervous, golfing with Neil on The Old Course was a real treat. It almost sounds funny to say, but I was expecting the golf to be all that ... It was ALL the small EXTRAS and unexpected things that made our trip a PERFECT 10. The bed and breakfast in Dornoch ... incredible ... the 5 star chef at the golf club for dinner, unreal food ... meeting Nikki at the Castle Hotel in Huntly ... priceless!!! The random stops at castles and Scottish stores, the distillery tours, golfing with professional footballers and then going to a match ... every day was a constant adventure of new highlights, and our drivers historical knowledge everywhere we went was invaluable. PS NOT using a DRIVER would be a huge mistake.
Trying to capture it all in a testimonial would be impossible, needless to say we all had our own highlights. Neil had arranged all of it and took special care to make sure every stop was better than the last. A true Professional who takes pride in planning "trips of a Life Time". Well ours lived up that and more. I can't thank him enough. .We even had a pint and a Scotch with his parents at the Cricket Club in Stirling. A great day and I even leaned a few new words at the football match that I an't write here ... lol. If you ever want to see the real Scotland, golf coast to coast and experience St Andrews and all it's history ... you can't do better and be more connected than with Neil and Scot Golf Travel. I can't wait to come back again.
Gary Johnson, Canada
Neil, Everyone arrived home well and have settled back into the "real world" without any ill effects. I have not stopped talking about this trip! Although the golf was fun and the cultural experience was equally enjoyable, the company, the banter, and the camaraderie, were undoubtedly the highlight for me. To echo Rob's comments, I do not think we could have asked for a better group of guys on this trip. Here's to Mike MacNeil! Thank you for sharing your dream and for many hours of research and organising this venture. SLANGEVA.
A comment on Neil and his Golf Tour Company "I cannot imagine any tour group exceeding the absolute top-notch service we have received from Neil and fearless driver! I have recommended this tour group several times since returning and will continue to do so when asked. As far as I was concerned, the customer service and attention to detail was outstanding and a final word to our driver Alastair, "He read us like a book and he fitted us like a glove. He just simply made our whole experience as pleasing as he possibly could!"
Michael Keen, "the Group from Tennesse" USA
First, let me say that I continue to be impressed with the professionalism of you and all your staff. You guys are a true credit to the travel industry. I cannot imagine a better group to work with. The personal touches you and John did for us by meeting us in Edinburgh upon our arrival and meeting us every day in St Andrews made us know that you were there to make our trip as grand as possible. I think you guys must also have some good connections with Mother Nature as even the weather could not have been better. There is little question that you guys are the best travel agency I have ever worked with. Please extend my best wishes and thanks to all your office staff for the help and guidance they provided over the last several months leading up to our trip.
Peter Kehoe, Canada
Thank you Neil for arranging such a great trip to "The Home of Golf".
All the guys thoroughly enjoyed it and I will be back in touch soon to arrange our next vacation.
Ron Laing, London
Everybody had a great time and enjoyed all the courses - Kingsbarns was awesome!! I am still getting stick for winning your very nice trophy for best scores over the week. All the guys are still raving about the trip, so thanks for all the organisation and attention, it was very much appreciated.
Sal Lecesse, President Lecesse Development Corporation, Florida
When I surveyed our travelling partners to ask what they most liked most about the trip. Every single one of them gave me the same answer - EVERYTHING! Thanks so much for everything that you did Neil to make our trip to Scotland special. To a man, our group has consistently used the words "over the top" to describe their experience. While golf was our primary objective when we headed to Scotland , everything that surrounded golf became just as exciting. The accommodations, the venues and the special events you scheduled couldn't have been better. The Scottish feast celebration on Friday was a fitting climax.
Frank Grosch, Lecesse Group, Florida
It was an unbelievable "Once in a Lifetime" experience. Every single aspect about the trip was incredible. I can't wait to go back and play again.
Scott Corcoran, Hoffman Group,
Just wanted to drop a quick note on our recent trip to Scotland. I was part of the Hoffman party that travelled to Scotland for a "Once in a Lifetime" trip. I was very pleased with the overall exprerience, enjoying great golf with friends. The week could not have gone better logistically. Everything from the arrival to departure was pot on. The golf courses were top notch. Our driver "Alistair" was excellent. He went above and beyond. Very informative, knowledgeable, hilarious and flexible. High grades for him! I look forward to making the trip again in the future and will recommend to anyone too look you up. Thanks for a great experience that I hoped for when I signed up.... Even the weather co-operated!
Mike MacNeil, Nova Scotia, Canada
Twelve golfers, some of whom had never met before experienced a very well planned and thought out schedule. We were all in total agreement that the only way to travel is with a coach and driver. Both were top quality and we will always remember our Driver and what he offered to our trip.
Starting our golf at the beautiful North Berwick course was perfect. It gave us an opportunity to ease into our trip. My wife keeps reminding me about how lucky I was to have picked your name off the internet, and I couldn't agree more. The interest and time you committed to our group was amazing from the start to finish, and I will highly recommend you and your company to anyone who asks. Thank you Neil for making the ultimate golf trip for twelve golfers from Nova Scotia a very enjoyable one. Thank you again Neil.
David Mitchell, Canada
Thank you Neil for a most enjoyable trip, lots of fun had by all.
Doug Oliver, Kansas, USA
Thanks for the photos and many memories from my recent Golf Trip to Scotland. From the traditional Scottish Lodging yours arranged to the Classic Links Course, The Sightseeing and the Cultural Experiences with vacation simply "blew us away" . We will be back!!!!
Francisco Pinto Balsemao, Former Prime Minister of Portugal
Our tour to St Andrews was first class. Your organisation was excellent and your attention to detail was perfect! To be offered Membership of your Private Golf Club in St Andrews and to include unique Scottish Jewellery for the ladies were some of the delightful touches - very often it is the smaller details that make all the difference. We look forward to our next visit to Scotland - we will be recommending your Company to all our friends and colleagues in Portugal.
Mike Rigo, Vice President, Solution Delivery & Management, Ontario
We all had a fantastic time and would definitely come again. We all loved The Old Course Hotel. The staff were great and very friendly. The location was great. The bar was great and it seemed like many non-residents came there. We went to many other places for a few drinks but always ended up coming back to the hotel bar to hang out. We certainly recommend that you use it for other trips. Thanks for all of your planning and professional advice to make our 20th golf vacation a success.
Mark Squires, New York
On behalf of entire group let me say Thanks for helping to make our trip to Scotland a memorable one. From the hotels, to the golf, to the meals, to our driver Henry, it was all outstanding. I can't say enough great things about dealing with your company. As you can imagine it was a bit scary on our end dealing with a company so far away that we had no past history with, but now I am going to recommend you to anyone who is thinking about planning a trip to Scotland.
We are already talking about our return to Scotland or perhaps a trip to Ireland, and I know I will be calling you to make the arrangements. Thanks again for all your help and please feel free to use me as a reference.
PS great job on the weather also ... it was unbelievable
Thank you for putting together the "Golf Trip of a Lifetime". The courses we played and the hotels you lodged us in were outstanding. The driver you provided us was very professional and prompt and made sure we were on time for all our tee times. If or when I return to Scotland to golf you will be the only people I will contact to put my trip together.
Jack Williams Group
Thank you all for your organising our trip to Scotland. We had a wonderful experience and the fact that you all "looked in on us" made a huge difference. The personal touch is "Priceless". Our favourite courses were St Andrews Old Course, Royal Dornoch, Dundonald Links and my Personal Hidden Gem was for For Augustus at Loch Ness! How many courses could you play where the only others on the course are sheep. The views and the layout of the course was most enjoyable. The Loch Ness Boat Cruise followed by the Whisky Distillery visit rounded off the Tour perfectly. We have decided on Troon and Turnberry next so will be in touch soon. Thank you all again.
