Castle Stuart - Scotland 2019

Hi Tom - Great trip to Scotland! Thanks so much for putting it together. Accommodations were excellent, and excellent service throughout. Courses were great. #1 Kingsbarns. #2 Castle Stewart #3 Trump Turnberry. Old Course Hotel...excellent. Blythswood...excellent. Ate at the Dakota....best meal of the trip. Stewart was an awesome driver, guide, and concierge. He arranged a great experience at R&A for us. We would want him again next time. Overall the trip was a 10 out of 10.
Thanks again until next time. Tony

Holding the Claret Jug - Royal Birkdale 2019

Tom - I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for setting my family up with the golf trip of a lifetime through Tom’s Golf Tours. My sons, Jack and Michael and myself along with my non-golfing wife Linda went on this adventure. We played golf 11 times in 9 days on courses such as Royal Birkdale, Royal St. Georges, and ending our trip at Sunnydale Old and New in London. In all, we played the four current Open golf venues in England, former Ryder Cup Venues, Open Qualifying venues, and other great courses. We toured from the Irish Sea near Liverpool, across the country to the English Channel at Sandwich, and back to London to conclude our trip. This trip would not have been possible without the great assistance of our tour guide and friend, Stewart Smith of McLaren Golf. Stewart navigated our group across the country in a 8 passenger Sprinter Van, played golf with us, dined with us, stayed with us, and paid particular attention to Linda, as Stewart arranged tours at the Windsor Castle and the Kew Gardens for her while we were playing golf. While at Royal Birkdale, we were able to hold and take a picture of the Claret Jug. I have attached this picture. I cannot tell you how much Stewart’s assistance meant to our trip, as he made sure we had no issues. Once again, thanks again for planning and implementing a wonderful golf trip. We will be using Tom’s Golf Tours again.

1st Tee – St. Andrews Old Course

Without question, the best golf trip I have ever taken. Tom’s Golf Tours handled every detail and customized the trip to our wants and needs. Most importantly, we received fantastic service from everyone involved. I would not book a golf trip another way and look forward to future trips through Tom’s Golf Tours.

Links Golf in Scotland 2018 - 2nd Trip with Tom's Golf Tours

We just returned from Scotland after completing another great trip. After getting off our overnight flight from the US we drove straight to Kingsbarns where we enjoyed an afternoon round at this gorgeous seaside course. After dinner in the clubhouse we made the drive a couple of scenic hours up to our hotel, The Chester in Aberdeen, a beautiful boutique with a great restaurant attached.

Ireland 2018 - Best Golf Trip Ever


Our Ireland golfing trip that we booked through you was the best golfing vacation/trip that I have ever taken. We had superb service from beginning to end, starting with our driver, Maurice. His service and timeliness was outstanding, but he also served as a tour guide, very knowledgeable about the areas that we visited and Ireland in general. Our accommodations were outstanding as well, particularly Adare Manor, first class hotel and spa, the equivalent of any in the US.

From Augusta to Ireland 2018


Our golf group consisted of 8 players from the Augusta Country Club in Augusta, Ga. To say that we had a great time during our 17-23 Aug 2018 trip would be a huge understatement. We were treated like royalty everywhere we went, starting with our bus driver at the Dublin International Airport. It was a really good move to have a driver and his upscale bus. Our driver was extremely friendly, helpful, and offered us great VIP service, plenty of room to spread out, a very adequate provisions for our clubs and suitcases.

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!

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.

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,

Jim G.



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.

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.

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.
