Golf Trip Reviews

Don't take our word for it. Here are some reviews from of our satisfied clients.

Tom –

I can’t thank you enough for a trip of a lifetime. All went amazingly well. I greatly appreciate you taking the burden off of me by planning our golf and hotels. It was a truly great week and I greatly appreciate your attention to the details to make it so wonderful.

I will call you later to give you a recap.

Thanks again!

Hello Tom,

Wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how much I appreciate your work in our behalf on our recent trip to Scotland. The arrangements went off like clockwork, truly the trip of a lifetime (I’m going to do it again, however). Loved our drivers (Lindsey at the Old Course, Jim Traynor for the rest of the trip), loved the courses (Old Course, Kingsbairns and Dornoch were the kings), and I had great caddies (my caddie at Kingsbairns, Joe Duddy, is from my grandparents’ hometown, Motherwell). I am recommending you to a number of friends and associates, hope they engage you.

Best regards,


I would like to thank your for arranging a fantastic golf trip to Ireland and Scotland.

Clearly the ease with which tee times were made and caddies were arranged was a huge benefit, but the biggest benefit of using your service was the arrangement of travel.  In Scotland we had 3 different drivers and each was good but Jim was by far the best.  In Ireland John was simply awesome.  In both instances Jim and John truly added to the enjoyment of our bucket list trip and the overall experience would have been dramatically reduced without either Jim or John.

Thanks again for helping us, we had wonderful weather and a wonderful time! Not not to mention playing the finest links golf in both countries.


I would recommend you to any of my friends planning an Ireland golf trip. Bjorn, the Concierge from the Malton Hotel was very helpful in picking me up at the Shannon airport, after my passport snafu, and it was a pleasure talking to him as we drove thru the Irish country side. The trip quality was outstanding, the value excellent. The courses selected were awesome, the weather great. The coach driver, Senan, was very attentive to our needs. Your advice and guidance were excellent.  Hope to do it again someday.

For a great price, personal service and ability to make any arrangements I strongly suggest Toms Golf Tours.

Thanks again,


We made it back safely from Scotland and had a great time.   Everything ran very smoothly including the drivers, hotels and courses.  Your services and contacts in Scotland worked flawlessly.  I understand that you were in Ireland during some of the same days and hope that your weather was as good as ours.  We only had sprinkles of rain on about 3 holes out of the 7 rounds.  There was plenty of rain each day, but our tee times were perfectly timed to avoid the weather.

I loved Royal Dornoch!  I have played over 500 different golf courses, and the 17th hole at Dornoch may be my favorite of all time.   I finally understand the enjoyment of links golf which often rewards bad shots with fortuitous bounces, while evening things out by punishing a good shot.   

I wished that we had scheduled Cruden Bay instead of Trump.   Trump is grand in scale, but lacked in personality and character, much like its owner.  It seemed to be more focused on routing the course to create postcard views rather than designing holes that make you think about what shots to play. 

We went first class on this trip, but in the future, I would like to visit many more links courses besides the famous ones  - “Hidden Gems”.

Once again, thank you for your fine service in arranging our trip.  It could not have been better.


Tom, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Ireland this June. Thank you.

The friendly  personal service you provided in planning the details of our trip and your and accessibility made it special because we could customize our itinerary and golf.

Going out of your way to personally contact each club on our behalf and request senior caddies and introduce us made our welcome at clubs like Dooks, Waterville, Tralee and Lahinch very warm. We had terrific caddies the entire trip.

We really appreciated you rebooking our rooms at The Slieve Donard and getting us on RCD with two members on Saturday. They could not have been better hosts.

Noel at Waterville allowed us to play an extra nine holes at no charge. He could not have been friendlier.

Mary in the pro shop at Lahinch was a sweet lady and so helpful.

Mossie Cremin was an extremely reliable, informative and friendly driver. He was very helpful and flexible if we wanted to change our plans a little. He kindly waited while we enjoyed a pint of Guiness after a round or played an emergency nine. We felt extremely safe the entire trip. He was a very conscientious driver. He personally introduced us at each club, made sure we got underway and was always there waiting. Gave us lots of history and local perspective on each place we visited as well as great Restaurant recommendations.

The value of the trip was very strong. Excellent accommodations, all transportation and lodging with golf and breakfast each day.

Golf in Ireland is an experience like no other: true links golf on amazing courses with the friendliest people on earth. So different from Americanized golf...... It's much about using your imagination and skill to run the ball or keep it under the wind and about the match and the friendly completion rather than a score. You play fast, are constantly facing different conditions, and get to enjoy amazing scenery at every turn.

Thanks a million.

See you at Mountaintop soon,
