“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.”
