Golf Holidays

Every golfer has a dream destination that they would love to visit for a golfing holiday. Accessibility to some of the world’s best golf courses has become easier in recent years with golf tourism becoming more popular and clubs around the world opening their doors to accommodate players wishing to play their course.

Using a golf travel provider to arrange your golf holiday comes with many advantages. Firstly, it removes the hassle and stress of arranging flights, accommodation at the best hotels and tee times. While doing some things for yourself online can be cheaper, the reality is that when it comes to golf travel, experts in the field such as International Golf Specialists not only make the holiday hassle free from start to finish, they are also able to provide better tee times and rates for most parts of the holiday than people who are doing it for themselves.

International Golf Specialists recently led a group of American golfers on their golf holiday on a lifetime to Queenstown in New Zealand, where they took in a week of golf at some of the best courses in the world. Our New Zealand supply partner had arranged everything so well that the group commented it was the best golf holiday they had ever experienced. Having tee times, hire clubs, golf carts and transportation from hotels to and from the courses, meant the group could sit around and relax after our rounds and enjoy a drink and food at the clubhouses.

With many hours left in the day after the golfing was done, the group took in experiences such as Shotover Jet Boating, wine tasting, gold panning, fly fishing and para gliding. Accommodation in Queenstown was located centrally and meant restaurants, bars and attractions were all within easy walking distance. The advantage of using a specialist in the field of golf holidays was apparent with the requests from this group for IGS to arrange their next golf holiday to Australia in 2018.

In bound golf holidays to Perth are growing in popularity largely due to people from around Australia and internationally taking advantage of the services on offer from IGS, who are based in Western Australia. Having Western Australia’s number one golf tour operator arrange a golf holiday in their home state is advantageous in so many ways. Managing Director of IGS, Gary Allomes often provides hosted tours for groups staying in Perth. As a capable golfer playing of low single figures, a president of one of the private clubs in Perth and with over 40 years of experience in the travel industry, Gary knows what is required to provide the best of golf holidays.

Gary also takes groups each year on hosted tours to Tasmania, Thailand and Vietnam. The numbers of people on these golf tours are growing every year and the majority of the guests are repeat customers who are returning for some more IGS hospitality. These tours are often the highlight of a golfer’s calendar, and with new products and tours added each year by International Golf Specialists, there are always new guests from all around the country wanting to come along with our groups for a golfing holiday to one of their dream destinations.

To arrange your next golf holiday, speak to the guys at International Golf Specialists. They have the expertise and experience to create the best itinerary for you and your travelling partners. Non-golfing travellers are also accommodated for with our recommendations of great activities away from the golf addicts within the group.
