“Many thanks for the organization last week. Let me say that we appreciated all the friendly help we’ve received from Scott and the team of Scotland for golf. We had a great time in St Andrews and played some fine courses. everybody was very happy and pleased with the experience and are all looking forward to a next time. Scotland for golf will be the first to get in contact with if this will happen. Also I will advise friends who want to go to St Andrews or Scotland to get in contact with you.”

- Sam Fayon, Switzerland

“Hello Craig, For me all of the courses were excellent…….with the best being Kingsbarns. I don’t think you will find anyone who won’t love that place. Your company & you did a great job and I will pass on your company name to any of my friends that are considering a Scotland golf trip.”

- Larry Ward, USA

“Hello Craig, First of all, I very much enjoyed my trip to play golf in Scotland and the service provided by your company. The highlight was obviously being able to play The Old Course on a not too windy day. The lowlight was having to stay at the Hotel Du Vin. The service at the hotel was excellent, the food was good, and the room was nicely appointed and comfortable. Overall, I was very happy with the service provided by Scotland for Golf, and I will use you for my next golfing adventure.”

- David Giguere, USA

“Hi Craig, Thanks for everything. We had a wonderful time. Transportation, Lodging, helping to first tee, drop off at first tee – all that was great. Very responsive. And you are all great guys – happy to have met you. Overall great, and Myles and Ed are already talking about coming back. Hope we do. Plus, I get through the UK on business quite a bit, so I will probably email you all occasionally just in case there is a single open on one of your times… ”

- Michael Collins, USA

“Craig, All went well and I am now safely back in Canada. All of the course that we played were outstanding my favourites were Portrush and Royal County Down both from the perspective of the the courses themselves, the views and their long standing traditions. A great trip extremely we'll enjoyed by the group. Hope to come back to Scotland next time. Many thanks for your assistance.”

- David Clark, Canada

“Thank you and Bill for providing a wonderful trip to Paul and myself. I really appreciated the information you and Bill provided to us throughout our stay. I also respected how Bill was known at the courses he took us to by employees at the courses. That provided validation of Bill’s history and performance of his current job. Everything you arranged for us was top-notch. The accommodations and scheduling were exactly as you advertised and met all of my expectations. And, of course, the golf was fantastic (or lovely, as you say in Scotland!). Please share my thanks with Bill. I’ve told friends about your services and expect you’ll be getting some inquiries from that. Now I’m looking forward to the next booking with Scotland for Golf – hopefully in 2018. ”

- Andy Jackson, USA

“I just wanted to thank you for a great vacation. It truly was a pleasure for us to meet you , George and Bill. We had a blast the whole trip and despite me losing my phone, passport, money and phone again everything was eventually found and returned, unbelievable. I give you a lot of credit figuring out the logistics of driving and tee times and hotels. We really enjoyed traveling with Bill, great guy and would definitely want to have Bill again when we return. The driver in Belfast, Michael, was also pretty exceptional. I lost my phone at the airport and he tracked it down and brought it to me the next day so we didn't waste any of our vacation time. Just a great trip and hope I can send you some other travellers in the future. I will definitely recommend your company.”

- Gary Schorr, USA

“Many thanks for your perfect arrangement. We really satisfied your warm treatment to us and very flexible arrangement to our sudden request to change the schedule. We really enjoyed one week at Scotland. Thank you again.”

- Nobuhiro Yaji, Japan

“It was a really fine experience. Every one of you were helpful and genuinely interested in our satisfaction- a great team effort! Special thanks to George & Scott for getting me on Carnoustie & the Old Course. Our accommodations were "scratch". George & Scott are Class A pros!”

- Dr Boyce Elliott, III, USA

“Dear Mr Craig I want to thank you very very much for that first scotland trip. We all loved it. The only hard part for some of the friends was that they are not used to walk. And for 36 holes they were really tired. It was a fantastic trip and you helped it make it real. Thank you again in the name of all of us ”

- Efraim Horn, Brazil

“Best golf trip ever! You and your mates made it seamless and I would certainly recommend other groups to you. Thanks for your hospitality, promptness, friendly lesson and making the trip as close to perfection as possible. Oh, and thanks for the great weather. Please see that it is the same when we return! ”

- Mike Stafford, USA

- Patrick Rona, Singapore

“Myself & my son had a fantastic couple of days in St Andrews but the highlight was watching my son teeing off on the Old Course with a fantastic gentleman & golf pro, Bill McColl. His experience, knowledge & witty banter made for a memorable experience.”

- Jim Corcoran, Scotland

“There are no words to thank you for setting up such a wonderful week for our golf trip to Scotland. What started out as a golf trip, turned into so much more because of Scotland for Golf. I doubt if other companies can provide the personal touch and laughter we experienced all week. Those special touches will not be forgotten. I have so many wonderful memories and pictures. I cannot thank you enough for your kindness, patience and humour. I had such a lovely time each time that you drove us from place to place and shared your favourite sites and stories with us.”

- Penny Reynen, USA

“I also returned home today. The trip was fantastic, really a lifetime event! Thank you for your perfect arrangement and hospitality. Please convey my best regards to David and Linsey. T. Soejima ”

- T. Soejima, Japan

“My golfing trip you arranged was an "unreal" experience. Everything happened just like our travel agenda indicated. From the ease of obtaining our rental car at the airport, to our wonderful accommodation, to the golf instruction and tour of the area and finally the golfing venues. The opportunity to play the Old Course with Bill McColl was so much fun and listening to the history along with just watching him play was certainly a highlight.”

- Steve Stringer, USA

““Just wanted to let you know that we (the Keating Group) had the best trip! I want to thank you, George, Bill, Allen and everyone else especially the drivers for everything you did. I can't imagine how that trip could have been any better. I know you didn't have anything to do with the weather, but I am giving you some of the credit anyways, never once did we get cold and wet. The house we had was perfect so whenever you get another large group like ours put them up there, we all fell in love with that house. Scotland for Golf is a fantastic company and you will be well represented here in Florida and I hope to send some business your way. “Best time Ever!" Thank you, Thank you!!!!!””

- Carrie Parmer, USA

“Please can I say a HUGE thanks to the team at Scotland for Golf for the chance to play a round at St Andrews with Bill McColl. Quite honestly Bill made the day for me. He was simply FANTASTIC. I couldn't have been luckier with the weather and with Bill. He was great chat, great coach and good fun. I thoroughly enjoyed the day. Best wishes for much success and thanks again for arranging the day for me. Kind regards Jeff ”

- Jeff Strachan, Scotland

“We arrived and everything went smoothly. Unusual for us. I just want to say thanks to you,George and the rest of your team. Six months ago I started the planning and I knew nothing. By luck I was referred to you. You were very patient and tolerant to all my crazy American needs. You planned a great trip for us. We loved every minute of it. George was the perfect fit for us, we enjoyed his story telling and his knowledge of the Scottish scenery was excellent. We really appreciated the extra time you spent with us, having a chance to get to know you and discuss world politics was an extra bonus. I know you didn't have to do it. I will refer anyone I can to you. If you come to the states give me a call, maybe I can repay the favour and buy you a pint. Thanks again, Doug”

- Doug Manos, USA

“Bill ,wanted to thank you and Miruna for making my experience at St. Andrews – Old Course , a wonderful one! I had a great day and thanks for arranging the sunny weather, a bonus. Bill, watching you shoot a 68 was also something special to be a part of. You still it have my friend! You were a great host and your swing tips and course playing strategy were very valuable and needed. I was surprised afterwards when my youngest daughter Johanna asked me if I would take her out golfing and help her to learn how to play! I think she might have caught that magical golf bug just by being at St. Andrews and seeing the place. I will make sure I arrange private lesson for her and not try to teach her myself. Hope to see you again maybe next year if I can get a group of guys together for a tour.”

- Ken Spinner, Canada

“A big thank you for everything ! We had a fabulous two days and really saw the Old Course as it should be played, a true test in winds like that !! ”

- Chris Sydenham, London

“St Andrews Golf Experience with the Pro- Thanks for a great session today. I liked the understanding you gave today and hope I can improve on the areas you highlight. I will probably take you up on the support offered and will be in touch through the golf season. Thanks again Andy ”

- Andy Somerville, Scotland

“Dear Scott and George: Scotland seems like a long time ago but all my memories are wondrous!! Both of you were gracious hosts and offered us a view if Scotland that I am not sure we would have seen otherwise!! The golf was unparalleled!! From St Andrew's to Turnberry……..WOW! The little bit of rain we had really didn't matter. The trip was beyond expectation! Ian took such great care of us from start to finish!! He seemed to anticipate our needs before we did! Please thank him for all of us!! Thank you to both of you as well.”

- Warren Terrace, USA

“Dear George, Many thanks for sending the pictures. I enjoyed my day and it was great to meet you and Bartek. I have already been trying to put some of your tips in to practice, with varying degrees of success. Will try and get up for another lesson soon. Kind regards Dougie ”

- Doug Steed, Scotland

“Hi George, Thank you, we had a very nice experience. Billy is a valuable addition to your company! My two friends and I travel and play around the world, and they both said that this was the best golf experience so far. Not bad feedback, we have been to some nice places. A lot of this was thanks to Billy. We will come again and play the Old Course. Kind Regards, Svein”

- Svein Sandvik, Norway

- Neil Pederson, UK

“George, I could not have asked for a better combination of a playing lesson to improve my game, detailed guidance on playing the most famous course in the world, and your entertaining company. Also, I know arranging perfect weather can't have been easy. Again, Peggy, Richard and I appreciate your making our trip to Scotland so enjoyable. -Dick ”

- Dick Fitzgerald, USA

“George Two very informative days on the range. You certainly gave me a few pointers to work on and I was straight down the drving range on Monday morning trying them out. My hook is coming along nicely!! If you can arrange for the same weather as we had at the weekend then I could easily convince Marissa to join me. However as a minimum, I will be back to build on your teaching. Thanks Craig ”

- Craig Carson, UK

“Hi, Just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your patience with us on our trip to the old course, we both enjoyed it enormously. We shall also be looking at your weekend training sessions once we get back from our visit to Australia. With luck you maybe able to sort out my grip! With thanks. Kate and Michael Wright. ”

- Kate & Mike Wright, England

“I had a wonderful time. Clearly, the facility and course qualities go without saying, but these where complimented faultlessly by your lessons. At one time straightforward and demanding, friendly and businesslike. Amusing too, I don’t think you need envy the west coast their sense of humour. There were moments I felt a childlike joy in our work. It was a forgotten pleasure to be pushed beyond my abilities, listened to with a responsive attention and dryly mocked all at the same time.Thank you for everything. I believe you to be a man after my own heart and not my own dollars, such as they are. I already want to do it all again and if the funds become available, so do my deeply envious mates. Your generous offer of putting something together within our means is not forgotten. All the best to yourself, Geraldine and Scott, Duncan ”

- Scott Duncan, USA

Thank you again and hope to be working with you soon. Regards Miho Toshiyoshi Client & IR Services ”

- Miho Toshiyoshi, Nomura UK

“HI George, Hope all is well with you. Many thanks for you help and patience last Wednesday, I really enjoyed the experience and learned plenty from the day. I got back home yesterday evening and headed out to practice some 30-60 yard wedge shots - I'm looking forward to playing those shots from here on. Once again thank you and please pass on my regards to Bill. Neil ”

- Neil Walsh, Ireland

“ I enjoy my golfing experience with Bill on the Jubilee course greatly, despite my 9 at the first hole, taking 5 to get out of my first greenside bunker!! However on hole 2 I did get out of my second greenside bunker in 1. From then my game improved, & I was pretty satisfied with my performance ... but there is reom for improvement as Bill pointed out. Bill was a very good coach & a good companion. Please pass on my thanks to him. Many thanks for the memorable experience. Sandy Morrison”

- Sandy Morrison, USA

“Hello George Many thanks for the video with instruction, and indeed for the three days as a whole. As I said when we finished on Wednesday, I am delighted with the progress you helped me to make. I'm raring to get out and practise now. Thank you also for the wonderful weather. We are sure to return to St Andrews; when we do we will certainly be calling for more of your magic. Enjoy the winter season. Very best wishes Julia ”

- Julia Olisa, England

- Giovanni Guidetti, Italy

“Well said Steve. We were very well cared for which made for a most enjoyable trip. Thanks for the golf tips Scott. I’m swinging the club more around my body on a flatter plane with good result……..most of the time. Practice. Best, Mark P.S. Do you know where I can get any sausage rolls here? ”

- Mark Rekow, Uruguay

“Scott & George: Thank you for the great care and attention paid to our group last week. I was under the impression that this was going to be a chance to cross golfing in Scotland off my bucket list. Little did I know that the trip merely whet my appetite to come back for more. The personal touch that you gave us, Scott, was well beyond our expectations. Even though we are probably older than you are, George, we felt strongly that we made a new friend in Scott. Not only was the golf sensational, our time in Edinburgh was phenomenal and certainly too short for Mark Rekow and me. What a fabulous city! Thanks to you both for making this the trip of a lifetime. Good luck topping it on our next visit. Regards, Steve Jaffee USA”

- Steven Jaffee, USA

“My name is Matt Ulliman and I am sending you this email regarding the quality of service that our group received from Scotland for Golf. I can honestly say that their quality of service and attention to detail exceeded my expectations. They arranged for our golf, hotels, meals, and transportation with great efficiency, and there was no issues to deal with except to relax and enjoy ourselves. I highly recommend that you hire them to drive your group, if it is in your budget. Scott Finlayson was our driver and he was a wonderful host and very knowledgeable about Scotland. We went on our trip to Scotland in 2007. Not only was this trip of the highest quality, they also provided the best value. We have 8 going to Scotland again in summer 2011. Because of my past positive experience with Scotland for Golf, I did not even consider any other tour company. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Regards Matt ”

- Mat Ulliman, USA

“ I am writing to you to confirm that I have used Scotland for Golf on several occassions since 2002 and most recently earlier this year to help arrange golf tours and accommodation in Soctland and Ireland. George and Scott have been fantastic - very attentive and responsive to special needs and their pricing is far better than any of the standard packages that you can find from Canadian or US package tours. I have recommended them to other groups who have been completely satisfied as well. Regards, Tom F. O'Shaughnessy, CA ”

- Tom O'Shaughnessy, Canada

“Hi George, Thanks for a great day at St Andrew's -you're a brilliant teacher ! It was really friendly, informative and inspirational. With the benefit of your expert tuition I am determined to put the lessons learnt into practice and cant wait to shoot some low scores, get a nice little "draw" going on and straighten out that pushed, slicey drive !. I'm working hard to keep that spine angle through impact - its really paying dividends. -Future goals are to get a bit more width, shorten the backswing and hold back the wrist "uncock" a little going down to impact. Thanks again and all the best for the future. Regards Chris ”

- Chris Conboy, England

“ Scott, just wanted to thank you again to adding to the great times Dad has experienced during his first trip to Scotland. He has not stopped talking about his golfing experience which he thoroughly enjoyed. We were able to grab some St Andrews shirts for the family at the golf shop. Thanks again and I hope to see you one day in Sydney. Stay safe, warmest regards, Penelope x. ”

- Penelope Brown, Australia

“Many thanks. Really enjoyed it and Bill was an excellent teacher, Regards, Brian Lane ”

- Brian Lane, Scotland

“Mr. McColl's skill and knowledge have developed over a lifetime in golf, but even more important is his ability to communicate this knowledge to his pupils in a seemingly effortless way. After six hours, my wife's enthusiasm for the game was re-kindled, her grip sorted, her stance sorted, and her first eighteen holes on a proper course completed to her total delight and no little self-satisfaction. In short, a miracle! Oh, and my Chinese wife's English is not too good, but once again, no bother to Bill MacColl. Six hours expert tuition from a genuinely accomplished professional in the most famous golf venue in the World. Not just a great experience, but great value for money. Many, many thanks indeed. Sincerely Michael Begg ”

- Michael Begg, Scotland

“Just to say thank you for the lesson, and for the clip of my swing. My golfing was hopeless before hand and now, with a bit of practice (or maybe alot) i can improve my game greatly. Your advice was very clear and i had a great time. I wont be surprised if I return for another lesson soon thank you again, Euan Corstorphine. ”

- Euan Corstorphine, Scotland

“Hi George, Thanks for the commemorative photos..I will endeavour to practice on the tips that you gave me, I know you must hear it all the time but I cannot fathom why I was so dreadful on the day, nowhere near my best. Thanks again for a wonderful experience, a great golf day despite the conditions. ”

- Colin Beresford, England

“Thanks Steven you said it all, we are very lucky to met George and Scott, they know how to do it right, now it is up to me to figure out how to do the golf right. Edinburgh was amazing and I haven't stopped telling my German friends about it.”

- Mark Jaffee, USA

“We were very well cared for which made for a most enjoyable trip. Thanks for the golf tips Scott. I’m swinging the club more around my body on a flatter plane with good result……..most of the time. Practice. Best, Mark P.S. Do you know where I can get any sausage rolls here in the States? ”

“It’s been a few weeks since we came back and I am glad to share that the entire group had a good time and the stories of our trip continues to be shared to those who weren’t there. Having been there gave us better understanding on the challenges of playing links golf especially at the recent concluded Open. It was a memorable and enjoyable trip for all of us. Thanks for the special dinner hosted by George which was a nice cream on top of everything we planned for.”

- Jason Ong, Malaysia

“I wanted to thank you personally for organizing and advising me on the best vacation I have ever had. We enjoyed the trip immensely and your suggestions and tour advice was appreciated and spot on. I can’t thank you enough for all your efforts, professionalism and making this golfing holiday one we will never forget.I look forward to planning our next golfing adventure to Scotland with you. ”

- Stevan Lambert, Australia

“Being back at home, I am still overwhelmed of this incredible Golf trip. I have done some fine Golf journeys, and so I expected quite a lot, when we planned the trip to Scotland,-but what we had experienced was really magnificent!!I would like to thank you so much for this perfect organization of our journey. The hotels you have chosen, were excellent and atmospheric, mostly the Greywalls in Muirfield. All the courses were breath taking,-I liked them all. Congratulation Scott you did a perfect job!!! Looking forward to our next trip to the west coast of Scotland I remain with.”

- Dr. Klaus Zimmermann, Austria

“Hi Miruna I congratulate Billy McColl on his input to a very successful day on Tuesday 19th at St. Andrew's. The weather was fabulous and Billy ensured that it was definitely sunny on the golf course. An excellent ambassador for scotland for golf. Regards Frank Corrigan. ”

- Edward Rodney-Smith, UK

“A somewhat belated thanks to you and Billy for making our golfing stay in St Andrews such a pleasant one. It was great to play on the Old Course and well done to you both for making it happen. The hotel was excellent and of the course the setting fabulous. We would love to get back there one day but in the meantime it is a very happy memory. ”

- Charles Parry, UK

“On behalf of Andy and I – thanks again for providing such a wonderful, first-class golf holiday! We both thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the trip and the details that Scotland for Golf took care of to ensure a memorable experience. In particular, we’d like to thank you for the time your personally took to ensure we were well looked after. Please also pass along our thanks to George who provided us a great orientation. Andy and I are already discussing the next trip over and would like to line up something that involves: Old Course, New Course, Carnoustie, Troon as part of our line-up. Any other suggestions we would welcome. Once we get an itinerary we will look at talking to some of our golfing friends about joining.”

- Deb Zelisko, Canada

“I finally have a chance to email you regarding the trip that you set up for us in Northern Ireland this past July. The accommodations were perfect both in service and location to all courses and points of interest.The golf was superb; your plans and vouchers were all on file and there were no issues at any course at any time. The Ardglass course that I played last is really fun, it has some very rugged holes early on in the round. It's perhaps more fun than many of the others as it has drivable par fours and short par fives and I should have finished under par except I limped home with a bogey, bogey, birdie finish to shoot even. It gives a golfer the rugged links experience with a chance to shoot a decent score. I really liked this course and would highly recommend it on your rota. The other courses were awesome, as one would expect from courses of their caliber. RCD and Portrush are in a class of their own with the others not far behind. Portstewart has some holes that are on par with either of the two more famous courses mentioned earlier but there are a few holes that are not world class, nevertheless it is a course I would love to play on a daily basis given the opportunity.Castlerock was a great track that I really enjoyed and although Tom Coyne in his book, A Course called Ireland had a negative experience I had just the opposite experience where the course staff that I met were extremely courteous, helpful, and welcoming. We had a tremendous holiday in Northern Ireland so thank you for your work to that end. I again want to thank you and your company for the excellent service that you provide in making golf dreams come true in the U.K. You have a standing invitation for our services as tour guide/host if you decide a trip to western Canada is ever in the cards for you. Take care. Grant Schaber ”

- Neil Pedersen, Scotland

“We had such a great holiday, and much of that was because of you and your involvment. What a bonus it was getting to know you. I will be in touch shortly. Tx so much for making the trip so memorable!! ”

- John Cocomile, Canada

“First of all, Ian was a spectacular host and gentlemen the whole time; its amazing how we didn't have any issues with tee-times, dinner reservations, hotel accommodations or logistics and that has to be because of great planning and also Ian was on top of every detail from beginning to end...he worked hard, earned the respect of the group and deserves a raise or at a minimum a bonus for sure. I would highly recommend Scotland for Golf to anyone that is considering a trip to the home of golf. From the initial planning calls and ongoing consultation, it was clear that you knew your stuff about the courses, locations & hotels and what we should consider for such a trip. It was truly the trip of a lifetime as described and we reminisce every chance we get about the great weather, awesome championship courses and outstanding food and hotel accommodations. I only wish my forearm was more fully healed so I could have enjoyed the golf more but I take great comfort in the fact that I will now have to come back to the Old Course and slay it at a later time when I am healthy and my game is back to par. (no pun intended) Scott, on behalf of the group, a fabulous job well done to you and your Dad (the finest Haggis Toaster in the Land) and of course Ian. If anyone needs a reference on your services, please send them my way! Looking forward to seeing you again in a couple of years. p.s. If you have any ideas on Golfing in Ireland, please send me some info to ponder. ”

- Renzo Dipasquale, Canada

“I can speak for all of us in saying it was a once-in-a-lifetime trip. The courses were great, and the hotels were in the middle of everything. In general, we liked the courses in the west better, although Steve loved the Old Course after shooting 81 there. Billy scored high marks with all of us”

- Dennis Levitt, USA

“We're back home now and i wanted to thank you very much for everything you organised for us. The planning was great and we enjoyed all the courses, of course. Bill was also very profesionnal, say hi to him from us. Thank's again, see you next year, all the best, Philippe. ”

- Philippe Jorand, Switzerland

“I played some great golf courses (Lahinch, The Old and Carnoustie the highlights), and stayed at some great accommodation (19th Lodge, Doonbeg and Old Course Hotel exceeded my expectations), and played the best golf of my life on my tour. So a big thank you to you and your team for making my dream golf trip a reality. I of course will recommend your company to my friends when they seek their dream golf holiday, and hopefully I can return soon to add more dream golf destinations to my CV.”

- Leigh Beaman, Australia

“Thanks again for the most memorable golfing experience I have ever had. I could not have asked for better guidance on playing the most famous course in the world, the Old Course, St Andrews and your entertaining company. Also, I know arranging perfect weather can't have been easy. We followed the route you suggested and had wonderfulafternoon. Enroute back to Gleneagles wehad a superb dinner at Yann's in Crieff. On the way up we happened upon Drummond Castle whose gardens were spectacular. Again, Peggy, Richard and I appreciate your making ourtrip to Scotland so enjoyable.”

“Just a kind e-mail to say thanks once again for a beautiful experience. Sending you one photo. Trying to have the hip lead the downswing and open its way for a smoother follow, or better position to strike the ball with body.! Anyway, good luck in your carrier, and hope to see you again.”

“We were very satisfied with the golf training program you arranged for us. Many thanks. Specifically we would like to thank for the excellent coaching we received from Bill: he was great in all his teaching that enabled us to improve our golf much more than we expected. In addition to his outstanding competence, we really appreciated the passion and motivation Bill devoted to our program, which went significantly beyond his normal duties. The most important outcome is that Bill made us love golf in a such a way that we will keep on playing with passion and continuosly striving for improvements ”

“trip of a lifetime--and you and Billy made it extra special! Thank you both very much. ”

- Steven Fisher, USA

“With about 3 weeks of reflection, my general assessment is that “this was a trip of a lifetime”. You, George and Ian all made us feel at home and made sure that both our golf and non-golf experience was virtually perfect. I have attached some pictures that I have been distributing to friends/family summarizing our trip. I have some special words of praise for Ian. He was very attentive and thoughtful. This occurring all the while his wife was getting a very important eye operation. I’m sure you know this already but he’s a pro! Final comment is reserved for the beautiful weather that you arranged.... well, we were at the least very fortunate. I wish you and the business continued success. ”

- Dwight Hawkins, Canada

“Just a short note to thank you for a wonderful trip. We all enjoyed it, especially the boys. Please pass along our thanks to George and Bill as well. Bill was a great host and the boys enjoyed his many stories and experiences. We will definitely look you up for our next trip. Great product and wonderful experience. Cheers Tim ”

- Tim Botts, USA

“From the first emailed inquiry until my final putt to end a memorable round on the Old Course, my experience with Scotland For Golf was outstanding. I feel privileged to have Scott as my pro on the day and having him guide me around the Course was the highlight of a month-long holiday in the UK. He pointed out a few interesting features around the course, gave me some good advice and told many interesting anecdotes about the Open. It far exceeded my expectations and, I feel, contacting Scotland For Golf should be the first priority for any keen golfer interested in playing at St Andrews. ”

- Andrew Cameron, Australia

“David and I really enjoyed our intensive golf lesson with you yesterday. Shame the weather wasn't like it is today. We have some good takeaways from yesterday and will let you know how we get on. I'll let you know how many air shots David takes :-) ”

- Stephen Hoare, UK

“We had a fantastic time in St Andrews. A massive thankyou for arranging it all for me. The accommodation was fantastic, great location and hospitality and the rooms were perfect. I am very keen in making this a regular occurence ”

- Jamie Hillier, PGA Pro UK

“On behalf of all the guys in our group, I would like to thank you and everyone at Scotland for Golf for the wonderful time we had in Scotland. The tour you put together was everything you said and lived up to all of our expectations. The courses were in great shape and the Scotish dinner you and Greoge provided at the New Club house was exceptational. It was one of the highlights of the trip and the first thing everyone mentions when we talk about the trip to our friend. Also, please thank Ian, our driver, for us. He was great and really showed us a good time. Selecting the limo as a transportation option was truly the way to go. I think we would have had a difficult time navigating around Scotland without him. Ian kept us focused and on track to make it to the various courses with plenty of time to spare and showed us several sights we would not have seen on our own. Once again, thanks for everything and if I ever get a chance I would definitely recommend Scotland for Golf. Rick Sibilla ”

- Richard Sibilla, USA
