A big thank you to John @ 19th hole golf for organising our recent golf break to Camporeal in Lisbon. We are a group of 8 discerning golf club members (not always easy to please) and to a man we thought the whole experience was superb. As the organiser of the golf party it meant with John’s excellent organisation I could also have a stress free trip with everything John arranged being perfectly executed. I would thoroughly recommend John and 19th hole golf and will definitely be using them again.
many thanks

“As this was the society’s first trip overseas, it was a bit of a leap of faith and a journey into the unknown. As the organiser, you can imagine, there were many questions from the group, and they basically needed plenty of re-assurance leading up to the trip.

I’m glad to say, that everything ran like clockwork, and fell into place perfectly. All timings of the travel company were prompt, all golf bookings were smooth, and the Hotel was spot on. We stayed in the Holiday World Polynesia in Benalmadena, and played 3 courses in 3 days. (Cabapino, El Chapparel and Torrequebrada). Golf was very good at all courses especially Torrequebrada. On behalf of MGS, I would like to thank yourself and 19th Hole Golf Getaways, for providing an excellent, all round professional service, which contributed significantly to making our first trip a memorable one.

The society now officially have the ‘travel bug’, and are already talking about next year!” — Rob Pickthall, Marina Golf Society

Superb attention to detail and very knowledgeable with great local contacts. We will be booking again next year with 19th Hole Golf Getaways.” — Andy Mac (2016)
