Golf & Tours Testimonials

“The Spain & Portugal golf tour was my first solo golf tour and also my first time to Europe, so to say I was nervous is a understatement.  Upon meeting the Golf & Tours’ Hosts, any trepidation that I felt was immediately vanished. They are such warm, funny and intelligent women who empower other women to be the best that they can be. There is nothing that the Hosts wouldn’t do to ensure that we had the most wonderful experience. Asides from the golf, the other activities that were included in the tour were outstanding. Lookout Golf & Tours, I will see you in 2019.” Deborah Hemmings – Wynnum Golf Club Member

“I honestly couldn’t fault this golf tour run by Golf & Tours. From pick up at the airport, the initial meet and greet night with drinks and canapes, the communication through the free WhatsApp chat detailing everything we needed to know and more. To be able to have our golf bags taken care of from beginning to end was a real bonus, not to mention the friendships that were formed between the America and Australian guests. Couldn’t recommend this tour highly enough, and I look forward to the next one. Thank you for all your hard work behind the scenes.” Leigh Hatch – Cromer Golf Club Member

“What a wonderful tour for our ladies group! Our Host was a wonderful organiser and every detail was smooth, efficient but most of all friendly and relaxed. Even with COVID restrictions we all enjoyed our getaway to Byron Bay enormously. The accommodation at Elements was perfect for us. I would totally recommend Golf & Tours to organise your next golf tour.” Brenda Carrigan – Moree Golf Club Member

“What a fantastic week we just had at the Gold Coast with Golf & Tours! I really couldn’t fault it – I think it was really good value for money – and it was fun! Everything was PERFECT – the golf courses, the accommodation, the meals provided, the goody bag, the prizes, the transport, the Top Golf event, the weather, the fun, the laughter, the company, the G&Ts, the great golf clinics and tips and the amazing calm organisation, and even the golf improved (I hope!). I’ll be back!!” Sue MacDonald – Mona Vale Golf Club Member

Thanks Golf & Tours for a fun week.” Jenelle Sanna – The Australian Golf Club Member

“I’ve been lucky enough to attend four fantastic holidays that Ainslie has designed, two overseas and two domestically, and her organisational skills are exceptional, as is her attention to detail. When Ainslie attends a trip away as a tour host, nothing is a problem. She is always calm, caring, warm, very organised, perceptive and a lot of fun to be around. I’ve very much enjoyed her company on tour. She’s a wealth of knowledge and she keeps up-to-date with the best activities, good casual and fine dining restaurants, the best coffee in town, things not to be missed in the area, etc.” Jodie Lord – Manly Golf Club Member

Thanks for your help.” Valerie Donoghue – Toronto Golf Club

“I just want to thank you for our wonderful tour to the Gold Coast. It exceeded my expectations and I was so impressed with your organisation, calm demeanour and attention to detail.

That in itself is testament to you being so inclusive with every fabulous moment of every day.” Kerry Wynne – Terrey Hills Golf & Country Club Member

“Great opportunity to improve your golf in a non competitive relaxed fun atmosphere and to meet other women where we all had at least one thing in common – golf.

Very well organised.” Susie Davison – Wakehurst Golf Club Member

Highly recommend Golf & Tours and I look forward to my next one.” Ruth MacDonald

“It is without hesitation I recommend Ainslie Saunders as a tour leader for golf trips. Her attention to detail and communication skills during tours is wonderful. She makes all the golfers feel relaxed and well informed of each day’s events and nothing is ever too much trouble from booking dinners to organising day excursions, when we aren’t playing golf. Ainslie’s friendly disposition and thoughtful nature is very much appreciated. I look forward to travelling with her again on golf tours in the future.” Joanne Boreham – Palm Beach Golf Club Member

The accommodation and location was fantastic, the organised trips were fun and the final night dinner excellent! The Hosts ensured everything ran well and that everyone had the best time.

“Golf & Tours are the ladies golf specialists. For a fun time, cool dinner venues, great golf courses and superb organisation they are the best around.” Colleen Rumbal – Monash Country Club Member

“Building confidence to play a game on a golf course was the number one mental barrier for me as a beginner. The Golf & Tours beginner weekends are ideal as I have, with time become less intimidated by the courses and can focus on working out which club, what stroke and how to hit the ball. The supportive other women in the group and the off course socialising make these the perfect golf getaway weekends. I am particularly appreciative that I may never play on these amazing courses if it were not for these tours. I’m looking forward to my next one as soon as one tour is finished! You do an amazing job” Vijay Naidoo

The organisation was brilliant and the thought and attention to detail that had gone in to the planning was exceptional. There was plenty of great golf, on amazing courses, and then still lots of free time to explore and enjoy the restaurants and surrounds of the Gold coast. Tiffany’s wonderful help on the course and in the clinics was immeasurable, and it was also fabulous to be able to play some golf with her and to see her beautiful game.

It can be difficult to keep a group of diverse personalities with different needs and expectations happy but both Hosts handle every situation with integrity and sensitivity and ensure that every member of the group is given their time and help if and when needed. Their job does not finish once golf is over for the day. Evenings can be spent enjoying drinks and group dinners with restaurants and transport all organised. As the research and leg work in finding wonderful locations is done for you it makes for a truly stress free holiday. I am already excited about my next adventure with Golf & Tours. Well done Golf & Tours.” Kerry Wynne – Monash Country Club Member
