Planning an Ireland Golf Trip from Scratch
Planning an Ireland Golf Trip is a detailed process for any group of golfers. Essentially, your main question is to ask, what else would we like to do besides playing golf all day? You may decide that there are two parts to your golf trip. Such as playing golf is one part of the trip and the other part are the cultural experiences.
Indeed, when planning and mapping out the critical parts of the trip, it is important to identify what the group would consider a great golf trip. Such as playing the great Irish links, nice hotels to enjoy, the correct type of transportation, sights to see and the restaurants. Ireland is full of culture, some parts can be arranged or let it all happen naturally in the pub!
Initially, you must create an itinerary for the group to identify the golf courses to play, what hotels to use and the type of transport the group will require. Also, consider arranging a presentation night for your members that are interested in a golf trip to Ireland.
Once that information is collected and agreed upon, then it is time to work on the details such as the following snippet into transport selection. Ensure to arrange transport for the group that caters to all their needs, such as:
- Note and recommend the best airport for the group to use for the trip.
- Ensure you have the correct and up-to-date airline carriers and the arrival and departure times for the group.
- Will the group require one bus on arrival or multiple cars for transfers?
- The correct bus size to cater to the group’s daily transport to the golf courses and back to the hotels.
- Be aware of the various laws that apply to coach drivers’ operations.
Once all that information is gathered, the question to ask is what transport company should you use? A google search will identify a range of transport companies, but out of all of the search results, how do you know which are the best operators to use?
Indeed, Concierge Golf will only partner with the best transport companies that will provide the services for all requirements. Certainly, Concierge Golf is to coordinate multiple transfers on arrival and departure.
