Discover Golf : August 2014
A t Discover Golf each month we bring the world’s most alluring golf and sightseeing destinations to your desktop. Better still, we want to make it easy for you to experience the best the wonderful world of golf has to offer. We’ve canvassed the country’s top golf tour companies and we’ve spoken to well- travelled Drummond Club members and industry colleagues. The feedback was compelling and we are pleased to announce that Discover Golf is partnering with Go Golfing Travel to present you with great value golfing holidays throughout Australia and to all parts of the globe. Based on the Gold Coast, Go Golfing Travel is a licensed travel agency that has been operating for 20 years. They take golfers on hosted golf tours all over the world—everywhere from the US Masters to the wilds of Africa, the pristine beauty of the Canadian Rockies, to the burgeoning golf tourism destinations throughout Asia. A quick check of their tour blog reveals in the past couple of months they have hosted groups to Hawaii, Canada and Mexico. With trips to Thailand, France & Italy and Western Australia’s Margaret River departing soon. According to Go Golfing’s founder and managing director Peter McCarthy, sharing the tour event with like-minded golfers of a similar age and a diversity of life experiences adds to the tour experience. ‘We listen to our clients and their feedback has been the inspiration for much of what we offer. The itineraries are well planned and run at a leisurely pace so you have time to enjoy the experiences. We have established contacts that allow us to play the best private and resort style courses.’ ‘Our itineraries are laced with quality sightseeing and famed attractions as well as those quirky, off the beaten track, hidden gems that immerse you in the local culture and make the trip all that more enjoyable and memorable. Just as much thought and planning goes into the itinerary for non golfing partners so they enjoy the tour just as much, and without the frustrations of the odd bad round.’ ‘Typically the majority of tour clients are aged 50 plus. Our affable tour hosts look out for first time travellers to make sure they feel welcomed. Client communications are of the same high quality you would expect from a Scenic, Trafalgar or Captain’s Choice tour.’ ‘We negotiate hard to deliver quality inclusions and tours that are competitively priced. Our clients are travelling with golf clubs so we have sought additional baggage allowances with a number of international airlines. Go Golfing Travel is the only travel agency in Australia approved for the carriage of two bags (each up to 32kg) as standard with Virgin Australia flight bookings. No fear of being slugged when you check in for your flight.’ And if you are looking to do your own thing, whether overseas or closer to home, Go Golfing can arrange your golf, accommodation, travel and more. Their friendly team of golf and travel professionals willingly shares their knowledge and experience so you enjoy a fantastic holiday and a great deal. At Discover Golf we want you to feel special.
