As golfers ourselves, we know from experience that arranging a holiday, even for a small group, can be a challenging and stressful responsibility.
We appreciate that if you are arranging a golf trip for a large group, you may not have all the names to give the airline at the time of booking. We deal with a number of airlines who recognize this and offer the facility to book flights, requesting only a deposit payment. Names are often not required immediately. Our experienced staff will be happy to assist with booking your flights for individuals or groups.
Also, many hotels and golf courses give better rates for 8 or more people travelling together. We will give the best possible price at time of quotation and booking.
Destination Golf tailor make every golf trip to suit your exact requirements. In relation to flights we offer you flexibility and recognize that it’s your choice. If you would like us to find you a suitable flight we will be only too pleased to offer this as part of our service. However we fully accept that you may want to take care of your own flight arrangements, which is fine. The advice that we would offer is to allow us to check hotel and golf availability, before you book your flights. This will help avoid disappointment and also with full knowledge of the tee times that have been secured on your behalf it will enable you to book suitably timed flights.
Many airlines are now levying a surcharge for golf club carriage. This can vary considerably depending on the airline and we would advise you look at the airline’s webiste for the baggage policy. Please not that Virgin Atlantic do not charge for golf club carriage and this can save over £100 on transatlantic flights. Further information can be requested from our reservations staff.

This is the most important part of your golfing holiday. As soon as you have decided upon which golf courses you want to play, and you have given us your instructions, we will request a tee-time booking from each golf course for the preferred time indicated by you. We will endeavour to meet requests for specific courses, dates and times, but it will be understood that requests are subject to availability, and accordingly are not binding on us. Green fee vouchers are not transferable, and not refundable, unless the course is closed because of bad weather.
We cannot overstress the importance of travel insurance, as so many of our clients have an annual travel insurance arrangement we do not automatically include travel insurance in our prices.
Travel insurance can offer protection against liability in the event of:
- Cancellation caused by most unexpected emergencies
- Cover medical expenses
- Repatriation and other losses whilst still on holiday
Please Note: Travel insurance cover given by certain credit cards is restricted

The policy of many overseas golf courses is that handicap certificates must be presented before play. It is the player’s responsibility to ensure they are in possession of this. If you are not in possession of a current handicap certificate Destination Golf have teamed up with the Golfers Club who can provide you with a handicap certificate by joining their club. They can be contacted on www.golffrontiers.com
