Chhosing Your Golf Tour Operator
Choosing your golf tour operator is one of the most important decisions that you make when planning a golf holiday or vacation to Ireland. A good travel partner:

This page introduces Tailor-Made Golf Tours, offers some points to consider when choosing a golf tour operator and points you in the right direction if you are not convinced.
|Of course, your golf tour operator should have a thorough knowledge of Irish golf courses but they should also know Ireland - how to to get around and how long it takes , where the most sensible places to stay are, what is on offer when not golfing and where the best places to eat & drink are. All of these details can affect the quality of your vacation and it is in your best interests to ensure that you have a knowledgable operator.|
This is critical to a successful golf trip. First and foremost the operator must be "at the coalface" to ensure that you plan your trip on a solid foundation of knowldege. You must be sure that courses are not undergoing maintenance and are generally playable, that accommodations are not renovating next door, etc. etc.
Your golf tour operator must also be on hand in Ireland to sort out any problems that arise, accidents, emergencies and plain communication failures that suddenly occur. You have a prang at your first roundabout, wind forces your helicopter to be cancelled, the golf course can't find your booking. Time zone & distance means your tour operator at home is powerless to help.
Finally, once you have left Ireland you need an agent and friend to take care of outstanding issues: torrential rain forced a course closure and your green-fee needs refunding, your jacket is in a locker room, you need flowers delivered to the landlady of that wonderful B&B....
Does the operator offer tours in other countries?
|It takes a lot of effort to keep abreast of developments at Irish golf courses - an operator that offers golf tours of Thailand, Spain, South Africa and Scotland as well is hardly going to know the level of detail required for your individual golf trip to Ireland.|
Does the operator also provide other types of activity tour?
|Tourists and travellers need accommodation, transport, food and something to do. Many companies take the opportunity of the commonality of the first three and spread themselves across the breadth of Irish holidays: general, walking, fishing, golfing, camping, horse-riding.... If you are planning a golf holiday, golf should be the most important factor. Unless the operator has a dedicated golf department they should be avoided.|
Does the operator offer you a friendly, efficient and professional service?
|Your Irish golf tour operator should respond promptly to your initial request for information and to all subsequent requests. They should be enthusiastic about and helpful towards your planned holiday and you should always have the feeling that it is your itinerary. Do not let your operator pin their preferred itinerary on you.|
Does the operator offer you flexibilty?
|Your operator should understand that the best laid plans can and will alter, especially when made months in advance. Illnesses and accidents occur, schedules are changed, you have heard of a golf course you want to add...your operator should accommodate these events and be prepared to find the best solutions.|
Does the operator have a visible track record?
|Always check references and testimonials from your operators previous clients.|
