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


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!

Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland, September 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.

Scotland, September 2016 

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

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.

Scotland, June 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!!

Ireland, June 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!!!

Scotland, May 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!

Spain and Portugal, October 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.

Scotland, October 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.

Scotland, September 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.

Northern Ireland and Scotland, July/August 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.

2015 British Open Escorted Tour  

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.

Scotland and Ireland, July 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.

Scotland, June 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.

Scotland and Ireland, May 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.

Scotland, May 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.

Scotland, May 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!

Scotland, May 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.

Scotland Trip 

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.

Scotland and 2014 British Open 

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.

Scotland, Ireland, England, Wales Trips 

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

Scotland and Ireland Trip 

Absolutely top-notch from start to finish. Liz and Ameli were knowledgeable and always accommodating, providing an incredibly terrific experience and great memories. 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!

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

Scotland and Ireland Trip 

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

Ireland Trip 

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.

Ireland Trip 

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.

Scotland Trip 

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

Scotland Trip 

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.

Spain Trip 

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?

Ireland and Northern Ireland 

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.

England and Scotland Trip 

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!

Scotland Trip 

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

England and Scotland Trip 

Couldn’t have asked for better service or experience

Scotland Trip 

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.

Scotland Trip 

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

Ireland Trip 

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.

Scotland Trip 

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

Scotland Trip 

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

Scotland Trip 

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.

Scotland Trip 

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

Scotland Trip 

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

Spain Trip 

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

Scotland Trip 

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.
