Look what other travelers have said after attending the tour!

The British Open Tour was described as the “Bucket List” of golf experiences which was what drew my attention in the first place. The golf courses lived up to my expectations and more. Despite my advancing years and ever growing handicap, I never imagined how nervous I would be as I prepared to hit a drive on the 1st tee of The Old Course at St Andrews. Every course was different and magnificent in its own way; unfortunately my golf didn’t always match the course. My list of golfing memories from this trip would fill a book but my most lasting memory will be the new friends that my wife and I met on the tour. Bede & Michael were always there to assist. What a great experience – you’ve got to do it at least once! Gregory Bloomfield

The thing that stood out for me from the tour was that the organisation was outstanding. Things happened when they were meant to happen and I can’t recall an instance when there was an administrative shortcoming on the tour. That gives you a lot of confidence in the tour being a success. Add to that, nice accommodation and you have the basis of a most enjoyable tour. The golf courses were every bit as iconic as we had hoped they would be and to have the opportunity to play them was a unique experience. To witness the famous holes that we have heard about over the years, such as the “Postage stamp” at Royal Troon, the final hole at Carnoustie where John Vanderveldt had his famous ‘brain snap’ in the burn that fronts the final hole just brings a new meaning to the pressure the golfers must be under. I thoroughly enjoyed the 2 weeks we were away and can now tick off a few of my “Bucket list” items. David Wills, Former Captain of Elanora GC
