Just a quick note of thanks for all your help organising our recent trip to Southport.
The golf courses were excellent, we were given tremendous welcomes at the three courses we played and the hotel was excellent.
Everything was fantastic and went to plan and we were really well looked after by all the golf clubs as well as Picollino in Liverpool. Thank you very much for everything and to be honest I think everyone enjoyed it so much they want to go back next year rather than Kingsbarns as we originally planned so I may well be in touch sooner rather than later! Liverpool was also a top night out and I’m still feeling the effects of it!
Everything sorted out and we have had a great time. Just leaving for Formby Ladies.
Hotel excellent and all the courses very welcoming. They also speak highly of you!
Thanks for all your help.
Your organisation was spot on. All aspects of the tour ran smoothly.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable time in Southport and Birkdale. The hotel was comfortable and the breakfast we great. The golf courses were in good condition and the hospitality at the courses was superb. It was very windy at Royal Liverpool so it was tough going as us southerners are not accustomed to playing in gusts over 10mph!
Once again thank you for organising a thoroughly enjoyable trip. We will definitely use Southport Tours for any future trips to the North West.
Ease of doing business with you was top notch! I know I emailed you a bunch of times on different things over the past few months and you were always very responsive and took care of all of the details. The trip ran seamlessly and the guys were all thanking me for organizing. I kept telling them about your company. I can’t thank you enough.
The Hard Days Night was a good spot for us. The only negative was they were having some sort of hot water issue. We had to take cold showers three mornings during the trip. I think they need a larger hot water heater. I do need to recognize one employee there though. Debbie in the restaurant was wonderful. She looked out for our guys and made sure we were taken care of. Her sense of humor combined with her customer service was perfect for our group.
The golf courses were great. I had guys on the trip who have been on tours of Scotland and Ireland. The agreed that the Liverpool area is the best for a golf trip! The caddies were all very good. I had Ian Rodwell for a couple of days and he was superb to work with. I had to cancel a caddy on Saturday at Ormskirk because one of our guys got a call to fly home immediately due to his mother’s health. Ian worked with us on that one.
What can I say about Jason? He is the best. Our guys all loved him and he took care of us on the transports perfectly. We changed a few times and he was so easy to deal with. He really became part of our group during the week and we’ll be requesting him when we come back!
In closing I want to thank you again. I believe one of my guys may bring his sons over next year and I’ve already been talking to him about using your company. Our big group will be back in 2020 and I will definitely be working with you for that one.
Great few days, very nice Golf courses and friendly. Hillside I think was the standout, especially the back 9.
Thanks for your help.
We thoroughly enjoyed all three courses and also the two nights at the Vincent hotel.
The starters at all three courses, catering staff and also members were very welcoming. The Pro shop staff at RB and at Hillside were excellent and greeted us warmly. The welcome in the pro shop at S&A was less warm and we were a bit surprised to be asked to pay the green fee there which necessitated a trip back to the car to get the paperwork.
By the way, your paperwork was excellent – very clearly set out.
We struggled to find the hotel as we drove down Lord Street as the Vincent was well screened by the trees on the attractive plaza in front of it. We would have been better off if we knew to turn in to Market Street first – our fault really but perhaps worth adding a line to the hotel address on your confirmation sheet to help newcomers.
Hotel staff were very helpful and courteous and nothing was too much trouble. Good room and excellent restaurant for both dinner and breakfast and great to sit outside in the late afternoon sunshine for drinks.
Thank you for making it all run so smoothly with perfect tee times. Much appreciated.
The trip was great, the weather was so hot!! Birkdale was first class, we all really enjoyed it.
We found the hotel hard to identify after dark, we arrived at 11.00pm and there were no clear signs on the building and then trying to find the car park was also tricky!! The stay there and breakfast was very good. One vehicle was charged £10 for overnight parking but the other car was not charged!
Thanks for all your help.
It all went smoothly thanks. We were happy with the trip although the Bistro at Birkdale was a little disappointing
First point - all our "destinations" were fully expecting us and were very well organised and so all of "the admin" worked a dream!
Second point - it was apparent that all 3 of the Golf clubs held Southport Golf Tours and you personally in high regard as, separately, all commented positively that we (i.e. Debbie) "had made a good choice" and "they really know what they're doing" etc. All of that was, of course, very reassuring for us and they all made very proactive steps to make sure we were well looked after (although I'm sure they do that for all visitors) and made welcome etc.
Third point - thanks for arranging the "good weather" option in our package!
Final point, we have been telling anyone and everyone who will listen what a great time we had and that includes singing your praises so hopefully if an of our golfing buddies want to do a trip (or if Debbie ever repeats the present!) we shall be sure that we call you first!
My thanks again and very best regards
