“We know the closer you look, the better we look”


I can’t think of anything you could have done better nor anything you left out, all in all, an absolutely perfectly planned trip.

The golf courses were fantastic ; both hotels were excellent, each with terrific rooms, outstanding restaurants  and superb service.

Everything about this trip was definitely first class. Thank you.

Joseph Huffman Scotland August 2017 September 7, 2017

Liz was fantastic and planned a trip that was truly outstanding and much appreciated by the entire group.

Our driver, Jim, was proactive and very knowledgeable, with a sense of humor and ongoing commentary on Scottish history and sights that was most fascinating and educational. The plush new bus, complete with 4 poker tables and a bathroom was superb – what a way to travel!

Everything was prearranged and fell in place without a single hitch. As one of our group said, “Golf International, Just keep doing what you are already doing so well”.

Richard Noechel, The Noechel Group of 12 Scotland August 2017 September 7, 2017

As usual, Golf International’s level of service was over-the-top and impeccable from beginning to end.

Jim, our driver/guide was such a Godsend…he has done a fantastic job for us before, but helping me herd (myself) and my 11 cohorts on this trip, was nothing less than a miracle in the making. Jim flawlessly and happily looked after us perfectly.

The courses were all outstanding from St. Andrews to Carnoustie, Kingsbarns and Gleneagles, but the Highlands were especially so, where Castle Stuart, Nairn and Royal Dornoch proved to be winners all. A special thank you for recommending the Links House for our stay in the Highlands … Superb service, wonderful hosts, an unbelievable restaurant and phenomenal accommodations… I may live here some day – it’s my favorite place of so many I’ve had the opportunity to enjoy. And the impromptu Scotch whisky class they put on for us, I highly recommend to all who may be visiting this stunning part of Scotland.

Tom Wake, The Wake Group of 12 Scotland July/August 2017 September 7, 2017

The trip went exceedingly well. For me all of my expectations were met and many times exceeded. It was a great trip and one which I will always remember.

Our driver/guide, Keith, was great. He made things flow so smoothly, keeping us on time and getting us around safely. In my opinion he went out of his way to make sure we were having a good time. He knew so many people at so many places and made sure they took good care of us. If ever I go back I would insist on Keith as my driver.

All of the courses we played – West Lancashire, Formby, Hillside, Royal Liverpool, Royal Lytham & St. Annes and Southport & Ainsdale – were exceptional, yet each was different from the others and they all treated us so well and had great locker-rooms and restaurants.

The Open at Royal Birkdale was something very special…it literally blew me away and was something I will never forget.

I would recommend giving the Golf International team who assisted in planning this trip, a standing ovation (and maybe a raise) for all they did to put such a fabulous experience together for our group.

Dr. Mike Robichaux, The Daniel Group England and The 2017 British Open July 31, 2017

The advice and attention to detail of the Golf International staff was first class in all respects! Liz in particular went well above and beyond to make this dream trip with my sons possible and flawlessly executed. I will strongly recommend GI to others! Thank you so very much.

Kevin Hartley & Family Scotland June 2017 July 31, 2017

Jim, our driver/guide, was just one of the highlights in a trip filled with highlights. We know drivers well (we employ 600 of them) and Jim is as good as any of ours!

David Boucher Group Scotland June 2017 July 31, 2017

Liz was a joy to work with, handling all of our needs very well and making great suggestions. It’s not often I have dealt with a more pleasant and accommodating person on an endeavor of this nature.

We got to play real links golf and alongside some of the established championship layouts like Royal Troon, Prestwick and Turnberry, tackled some true “Hidden Gems”. Cruden Bay is the best course I have ever played and North Berwick comes in at a very close second, followed by Peterhead, which we really loved  with some of the most spectacular holes on the entire trip.

The hotels Liz recommended were perfect…extremely convenient locations for our golf and they all had great kitchens, each with menus that included some outstanding local dishes.

This was our third trip with Golf International, so it’s clear I believe in your competence, but you had better keep Liz around for our next trip, which she can start planning now for May 2019.

Col. John and Mr. Andrew Van Domelen Scotland May 2017 July 31, 2017

Golf International’s service was excellent from start to finish – our driver was terrific, the hotels were tops and every one we came in contact with, were all great. The golf courses were consistently excellent and we loved them all, Turnberry was a complete surprise and our most favorite. We added Kingsbarns which also proved to be amazing. The town of St. Andrews and its many attractions was simply awesome.

Ed Wirtz Group Scotland May 2017 June 14, 2017

Everyone at Golf International was terrific and our driver Sam, was fantastic…he was knowledgeable, kind, attentive and most enjoyable. Rusacks Hotel and our rooms overlooking the 18th hole at St. Andrews Old Course, were amazing. The entire experience with Golf International was nothing less than excellent!

Keith Barton Group Scotland May 2017 May 30, 2017

Many thanks for a fabulous trip that was extremely well organized by Golf International through your man, William. I still can’t believe how good the courses were and although they were all outstanding, the highlights for me were Ballybunion, Turnberry, Royal Dornoch and Carnoustie.

The combination of great quality courses and fabulous accommodations, as well as the different weather experiences made this a very special trip, all pulled together perfectly by William

We will be using Golf International again when we bring back sixteen of our mates in 2019!

Luke Fildes party of 4 from Australia Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland, September 2016 November 22, 2016

We had a wonderful time and the weather was just right with only one day of golf when it was raining. Everything was so well organized with addresses, telephone numbers, distances etc. and you thoughtfully provided a car rental with a GPS, which proved to be a God-send with all of those roundabouts.

A sincere thank you from Donna and Dave – we will definitely be using Golf International again.

Mrs. Donna Brown and Mr. Dave Okrainec Scotland, September 2016 November 21, 2016

You were very professional and organized a wonderful trip for the 12 of us.

Mr. & Mrs. John and Nancy Berg, Party of 12 Scotland and the British Open, July 2016 September 26, 2016

Liz was wonderful. She was informative, patient and responsive!

Mr. Dave Pierson, Party of 12 Ireland and Northern Ireland, July 2016 September 26, 2016

The staff was very attentive to our needs and preferences. The golf courses, the caddies and the accommodations were all very enjoyable and resulted in a great vacation.

Mr. Richard Pates Scotland, July 2016 September 26, 2016

It´s almost one month since we were playing golf in Scotland. We had a wonderful time there and everything that Jenny planned was very, very good. I will surely recommend your company to my friends. Thanks again.

Mr. Álvaro Sepúlveda, Party of 8 Scotland, June 2016 July 19, 2016

The golf, accommodations, restaurants and transportation provided all worked out excellent. Thanks again for organizing a great trip.

Mr. Brad Nelson, Party of 8 Spain, June 2016 July 19, 2016

Golf International made this trip a complete pleasure. Your staff were superb to work with and always so helpful and knowledgeable, working hard to accommodate all of our needs and desires – They get an A plus. I highly recommend Golf International’s services.

Halley Family Scotland, June 2016 July 19, 2016

Liz is phenomenal, knows exactly what our group is looking for in regards to lodging, golf courses, tee-times, dining…everything! Response time with Liz and her team (Ameli for this trip) has always been extremely quick, feel they are making sure the trip is perfect, going above and beyond including checking in with us during the trip! This was our 5th trip with Golf International  and each one has exceeded our expectations.

Looking forward to planning the next one with Liz and the team!!

Mr. Kevin Allen, Party of 8 Ireland, June 2016 July 19, 2016

Thank you so very much, you put together the trip of a lifetime for me and my family…Wow!

The Golf International Team were “front & center” at each designated location. Their involvement, recommendations and assistance were very comforting and much appreciated.

The list of premiere golf venues does not get any better than this list! We were all very pleased and privileged – The lodgings were “top-shelf” and we couldn’t have been happier or more comfortable. This trip was spectacular in every way…The golf, the hotels, the planning, the transportation arrangements and the ultra-professionalism we experienced throughout…There is none better than Golf International!!!

Mr. Len Damico & Family Scotland, May 2016 June 6, 2016

Liz, I wanted to let you know that you and your New York staff were absolutely top-notch. This was our group’s 3rd overseas golf junket, using three different golf travel companies, because of going to different locations. Of the 3, you folks at Golf International were by far the best, always responsive and very thorough.

Our trip to Spain and Portugal will long be remembered.

The golf at Valderrama and the tour of their golf museum was very special and dining at the clubhouse that evening was terrific. Monte Rei Golf Club is truly a special place… their level of service was very impressive and the course was great.

It was a wonderful trip and I wanted you to know how much all in the group appreciated your help in scheduling 180 holes on the best courses in Spain and Portugal. Great job Liz!

Mr. & Mrs. Bill Fowler, Party of 12 Spain and Portugal, October 2015 November 16, 2015

25 m.p.h. winds did not dampen our enjoyment of Carnoustie. Rain all day at St. Andrews New Course did dampen that experience a tad, but warm, sunny days at The Old Course and Torrance Course was a great ending to a week of ever- lasting memories!

The historic town of St. Andrews was like going back to the 15th Century and one of the many highlights of a perfect trip filled with so many wonderful experiences.  Your Scottish staff were fabulous and couldn’t have been more accommodating. Your recommendations and suggestions were all spot-on and the attention to detail in ensuring every single element flowed flawlessly, was pure perfection.

Thank you for such a well-planned trip that was nothing less than excellent from start to finish.

Mr. Bob Bialobrzeski Scotland, October 2015 November 3, 2015

This was the trip of a lifetime for me and my son! Thank you for making it such an awesome experience for both of us.

Mr. Michael Dukette Scotland, September 2015 September 28, 2015

I have had good luck with travel assistance from other companies in the past, but nothing that matched the outstanding service I received from Golf International, which was A++.....you are the best!

Everything went like clockwork… the chauffeured transfers in Scotland and Northern Ireland were perfect. The golf was incredible and included some of the best courses I have ever played. I loved the hotels you suggested and your restaurant recommendations were all so very special, I felt bad my wife wasn’t with me at each of them.

Thanks for a great trip.

Mr. Matt O'Neill Northern Ireland and Scotland, July/August 2015 September 2, 2015

This was an excellent trip and our driver/guide, Jimmy was the best – cordial, accommodating, knowledgeable and an all-around wonderful person, he helped make this the best travel experience we have ever had.

Y’all do a wonderful job!! Thanks for the experience. Everything we did was wonderfully planned and gave us a special appreciation for the golf, history and awesomeness of Scotland.

We had a fantastic time and were treated very well throughout. We will absolutely recommend Golf International to others.

Mr. & Mrs. Shawn Cooksey 2015 British Open Escorted Tour September 1, 2015

Congratulations and a big thank you to the entire Golf International team for arranging such a terrific trip to The British Open at St. Andrews, it really was the trip of a lifetime.

While our husbands played golf, we who are not players were taken on some truly memorable sightseeing excursions and with the expert guidance of our knowledgeable and personable driver/guide, experienced the beauty and fascination of Scotland and the super friendly, Scottish people.

Your restaurant choices couldn’t have been better, the hotels, nothing less and despite some terrible weather, The British Open itself was even more exciting than we had been told it would be.

I shouldn’t miss telling you that all of the golfers on the trip, also thoroughly enjoyed playing what they described as some of the world’s very best golf courses. I think they all left Scotland totally inspired by their playing experiences and plans are afoot to return. Of course we will be relying on our friends at Golf International to bring the trip together for us.

Again, many, many thanks for this fantastic first experience, we are all looking forward with great anticipation to the next one.

Mrs. Fred McGovern 2015 British Open Escorted Tour August 31, 2015

Your excellent services provide the organization and handle what often times can be difficult logistics and put the customer at such ease. This ultimately leads to a far more relaxing and totally memorable trip. Thank you Golf International for what turned out to be a perfect vacation.

Mr. Brent Meskimen Scotland and Ireland, July 2015 August 11, 2015

Everything was excellent. We were so impressed with our accommodations and the golf was not only challenging, but amazing.

Liz and Ameli are great people to work with and their customer service skills are great. That’s why we keep coming back to Golf International! We will absolutely keep recommending you.

Mr. and Mrs. Charles Larson Scotland, June 2015 June 22, 2015

Have always received very good service from Golf International when planning my trips and this was my third time with you! Your expertise, advice and suggestions have always been very helpful and this trip was no exception. Everything was great.

Mr. Gerald Peck Scotland and Ireland, May 2015 June 8, 2015

What a treat! Everything was effortless, allowing our group to focus on enjoying our vacation, which we did.
Our driver Jim, who met us at Edinburgh Airport, set the standard with his professionalism and genuine desire to make sure we enjoyed the beautiful country of Scotland. The re-assuring presence of your St. Andrews Golf Manager was another, very professional touch.
We had a great time and thank you for providing a genuinely superior, first class service.

Mrs. Helen Zorich Scotland, May 2015 June 8, 2015

Liz was super-helpful and had many excellent suggestions that resulted in a perfect, no stress trip, where every detail was perfectly taken care of.
The golf was excellent throughout…St. Andrews New and Old Courses were full of traditions and memories, Carnoustie was very challenging, Royal Troon was beautiful and Prestwick hilly and challenging.
Our hotels were both elegant and very classy and Lochgreen was simply extraordinary.
Your restaurant recommendations were all excellent.

Mr. and Mrs. Pablo Jose Alvarez Scotland, May 2015 June 8, 2015

From start to finish, everything about this trip was excellent.
Our driver was super…he was so knowledgeable, had plenty of suggestions and was such a nice person.
The selection of golf courses was wonderful, despite the rain, hail and wind. The hotels were fabulous and the Scottish people everywhere were so friendly. We have already recommended Golf International to other friends… Keep up the good work!

Mrs. Judy Owens Scotland, May 2015 May 26, 2015

This was the 'fifth trip of a lifetime' I have taken with my friends to golf in Scotland or Ireland coordinated by Golf International. I was in charge of organizing the trip for my group and once again, GI put together a fabulous trip.  I recommend Golf International unconditionally. When we plan our 'sixth trip of a lifetime', you will definitely be our first call.

Mr. Allen Friday Scotland Trip October 20, 2014

Your recommendations on our lodgings were fabulous and our drivers couldn’t have been better or more accommodating. The golf courses were all excellent and the town of St. Andrews with all of its history was a pure delight. This was a life-changing trip and I really want to thank you and Golf International for all you did to make the dream come true.

The Wallace Family Scotland and 2014 British Open October 1, 2014

I have utilized the services of Liz and Golf International since 2005. We were part of a group tour to the Open in St Andrews that year and had a great time. While the group event was worthwhile, we learned that the true value of Liz and her staff are creating bespoke trips. Over the years Liz has recommended the best courses, hotels, drivers and professional guides for all parts of the UK. She is tireless in her efforts to make sure everything is perfect  for the entire excursion. She has pointed us towards courses we were not aware of, but should not be missed, and arranged for tee times on the most exclusives courses in the UK. Apart from that she has introduced us to guides for the likes of Westminster Abbey, Beatle tours, White Cliffs of Dover and other sites that make the trip more than just a one dimensional golf holiday. Her staff is efficient and forward thinking so your money is spent wisely. Wouldn't think of visiting the UK without her assistance.

Mr. Patrick Farber Scotland, Ireland, England, Wales Trips September 19, 2014

Ronnie was a huge help - Very knowledgeable, professional and friendly!

Mr. & Mrs. Esteppe Scotland and Ireland Trip September 18, 2014

Thanks to Golf International for a great time and for all of your time and attention. I’m running out of accolades, so we must go back!

Dr. John Hubert Scotland Trip September 16, 2014

From the courses to the hotels, restaurant and sightseeing suggestions, all were fantastic. Golf International’s professionalism, attention to detail and support were impeccable.

Mr. & Mrs. Anderson Scotland and Ireland Trip September 16, 2014

Golf International did not disappoint – everything was splendid and our arrangements were as smooth as silk

Mr. Frank Doheny Ireland Trip September 16, 2014

The material you sent in advance had us well prepared. The arrangements and the people were great. The driver was outstanding and very helpful, making absolutely sure we were well taken care of. The trip was outstanding from beginning to end without the slightest hitch. Congratulations to all at Golf International for a superlative job.

Mr. Paul Putzel Ireland Trip September 16, 2014

My first trip to Scotland and your New York staff couldn’t have been more helpful throughout the conception, planning and organizing, which made for a very successful trip. William always willing and able to answer any questions and work with me on dates, course selections, levels of accommodation, etc.  He was spot-on with course suggestions, where to take caddies and what courses we didn’t necessarily need them. All of the arrangements; car, tee-times, accommodations, etc., were scheduled properly and went off without a single hitch. Looking back, this was a truly fantastic trip and your staff were very instrumental in making it happen.

Mr. Jim Kaufmann Scotland Trip September 15, 2014

Everyone I had contact with at Golf International was excellent – another great job, 3 times in a row! Excellent!!

Mr. Gregory Turner Scotland Trip September 15, 2014

Liz was a delight to work with, she was so positive & gave a myriad of wonderful ideas and suggestions to make this a very special experience for our group. The result of all the extra assistance from Golf International was a very successful trip to Madrid and the Costa del Sol.

After talking and planning with Liz I knew we had chosen the right company.  Everyone made us feel special with so much attention to our needs and requests. Thank you for making our golfing \ sightseeing trip to Spain such an enjoyable and memorable time.

Mrs. Lynda Clark Spain Trip September 15, 2014

The Golf International trip evaluation form has a question, ‘How can we improve our service?’. My response to you is…How can you improve on greatness?

Mr. & Mrs. Hooks Ireland and Northern Ireland September 15, 2014

What an amazing trip! Excellent communications from the very beginning. Staff very knowledgeable about every aspect of our travel, from the hotels, the transportation, outings for us non-golfers and of course, the golf planning. Thank you for sharing your depth of knowledge, the great suggestions you gave us and your enthusiasm to create a truly very special trip.

Mr. and Mrs. Barger England and Scotland Trip September 15, 2014

David, I can’t say enough about your New York staff. I thoroughly enjoyed planning my trip with them and commend them on helping me navigate the process so smoothly. Your staff that met us at the airport & in St. Andrews were extremely helpful and accommodating. I will definitely recommend Golf International to other golfers who catch the golf travel bug!

Mr Devin Taylor Scotland Trip September 15, 2014

Liz and Ameli were not only very knowledgeable, but extremely helpful, patient and accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed. Thanks for a perfect trip

Mrs. Lora Lee Olsen England and Scotland Trip September 15, 2014

Couldn’t have asked for better service or experience

Mr. Jim Griffin Scotland Trip September 15, 2014

Liz and Golf International personnel spent time to understand and accommodate our group’s special needs and interests in the planning process and managed to deliver everything. GI’s Scottish representatives and drivers were always punctual, helpful with luggage, congenial and went beyond expectations. David, your golf manager in St. Andrews, was wonderful and full of information and stories! Anything we wanted, he would supply – golfers and non-golfers all enjoyed him immensely.

Golf International provided expertise, attention to even the smallest details, understanding our group’s special needs and interests, activities and arrangements for both golfers and non-golfers and the best of facilities available.
Liz was superb in helping us make the arrangements and then navigating the tricky details caused by an unexpected death and health problems that occurred in the group. The helpfulness in times of real need made all the difference.

Mrs. Diane McClurken Scotland Trip September 15, 2014

This was our second experience with your company and we’ve been very pleased both times. You do a terrific job.

Mr & Mrs. Willett Ireland Trip September 15, 2014

100% professional, prompt responses to inquiries, very knowledgeable, great personal relationship from a business standpoint. Both Liz and Ameli could not have been better (I will miss our e-mails and conversations).

This was as close to perfect as you can get!

You are a first class organization, genuinely interested in the best results you can give your clients. While Golf International is a golf travel business, I never felt (from my initial conversation with Liz) that I was just another paying client. Far from it. The feeling I got from Liz and Ameli was they always kept in mind I was a person with this (possibly) once-in-a-lifetime golfing dream, and they made my dream come true.

Mr. Paul Miceli Scotland Trip September 15, 2014

As always, another great job thanks to everyone at Golf International.

Mr. Rich Haen Scotland Trip September 15, 2014

Thank you Golf International. This was an incredible experience – everything I had hoped for and more.

Mr. Charles Wood Scotland Trip September 15, 2014

New York Office handled everything precisely and to a tee!
Your staff in Scotland was excellent – cordial, friendly, and ready to answer any questions. John, our driver, was so wonderful. He went to great lengths to help us. I feel he is now a friend.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith Scotland Trip September 15, 2014

Jim was awesome.  Could not have asked for a better experience.

Mr. Scott Thompson Scotland Trip September 15, 2014

Accommodated our frequent changes; made excellent recommendations + possible alternatives for golf, hotels, + meals

Mr. and Mrs. Clineburg Spain Trip September 15, 2014

Fabulous – very well organized and prompt – top quality in every way.

Mr. and Mrs. Schwartz Scotland Trip September 15, 2014

Although we had been told by our good friends, Jack and Jenny Mitchell (who travelled to Spain with you last year) that Golf International was the very best, the proof of the pudding was in the eating and the Iberian pudding you prepared for us this past May was absolutely delicious and almost beyond belief. Thank you for sharing your awesome knowledge of not only Spain and Portugal’s excellent golf and truly great hotels, but also your infallible restaurant recommendations and inspired sightseeing ideas.

We are well-seasoned travelers, but never have we experienced such a top-drawer level of well informed, personal service. You produced one of the most memorable vacations Jim and I have ever taken. We will be putting you to work on our next trip very soon.

Mr. and Mrs. Hutchison Spain and Portugal Trip July 15, 2014
