Golf travel advice from an expert

 

We get some travel advice from one of  Golfbreaks.com’s top customers.

Earlier this year we were lucky enough to be invited to a Golfbreaks.com event at Celtic Manor. While we were there we took the opportunity to speak to Calum Meiklejohn who is a top booker with Golfbreaks.com

He had a lot to tell us about what makes a great golf break. Here are his stats:

Handicap: 9
Bookings made with golfbreaks.com: 15
Booking with golfbreaks.com since: 2008

Calum is a seasoned golf traveller with some top tips and invaluable travel advice.

  • Plan ahead – go online and do your homework
  • Are you going to take your clubs or hire them?
  • Do some research into insurance and make sure you purchase it ahead of your trip.
  • Suncream – If you’re heading for the sun, be prepared.

So what were Calum’s top tips for a successful suitcase?

  • Good pharmaceuticals, especially sun cream
  • The right clothes for the trip, including waterproofs (especially for a Scotland trip)

Finally, Calum told us his top 3 golfbreaks.com destinations.

1. Portugal
Superb courses, people, food and weather

2.Turkey
Quality golf courses and hotels where they really do look after you.

3. Scotland
