Not everyone wants to travel in a group to play golf. They prefer their independence and to choose where and when they wish to travel and where they would like to play golf. In addition to this, we are being approached on a regular basis to provide custom inbound itineraries for individuals and groups. Our contacts with hotels, golf clubs and transport providers means that providing custom itineraries both for New Zealand and overseas is an obvious extension to what we already do.
Therefore we have recently launched a completely new area on our website under the brand of Golf Encounters. You can switch between both sections of the website just by selecting the tour category you want under the Tours tab, or just type in www.golfencounters.co.nz to go straight to the custom/independent tours area. We have loaded up some sample tours to give people some ideas, but really the sky is the limit on what can be done here - whether it is just the two of you, two or three couples, a group of mates or a group from your golf club, we can custom build a holiday for you, gaining you access to those golf courses you have always wanted to play. We are still in the process of loading sample tours, so dont be put off by the handful that are there at the moment. More will be going up as time allows. To get a quote for your independent golf holiday, just contact us by email or phone. We will need to know where & when you want to go, the level and type of accommodation you would like, and whether you will self-drive or prefer transfers. We look forward to assisting you with your custom/independent golfing holiday in the future.
A very happy New Year to you and your families - may 2017 be a good year for you. We trust that you have been enjoying a restful time over this holiday period, and catching up with friends and family. We managed to have a few days away with friends in a great place called Kuratau, at the western end of Lake Taupo.
Traditionally this is the time when many of us look to make holiday decisions for the coming year. If you havent started thinking about taking a break this year, then maybe this newsletter will encourage you to consider taking a holiday with a like minded group of golfing mates!
Bookings for our Australia holidays over the winter period are building well, with the first dates for our Sunshine Coast golf holiday in August already booked out. But dont worry, we have arranged for a second Sunshine Coast holiday, so make sure you see the details in the tour updates.
We are conscious that not everyone wants to travel with a larger group to play golf and see the world. With this in mind, we have recently added a complete new section to our website, which highlights independent custom golf tours, both in New Zealand and overseas.
