A Few Comments from our Clients...
Golf in Tenerife (December - 2 persons)
I just wanted to say thank you very much for looking after our golf bookings – everything was perfect.
Tony, UK, December 2018
Golf in Gran Canaria (September - 12 persons) and Algarve (October - 5 persons)
RE Gran Canaries, the txi transoort was absolutely spot on, a hic up on the last day for pickup to the airport, they wer coming on the original time not the rearranged time we asked for, but after a phone call,that was sorted.
The El Cortijo Golf, we found the club house and staff brilliant. The course just in need of some TLC, water features were dry and not working, the greens were ok, bunkers had grass growing in them, the fairways needed attention. Whilst we were there we saw no groundsmen working anywhere, this did not detract from the enjoyment of the course.
Re Portugal, the Santo Antonio Golf turned out to be the best course, we all thoroughly enjoyed playing here, everything was absolutely spot on, course,staff and club, catering.
I know you did not ask about BoaVista, but it has horrendous there, the course was over subscribed, it took 6 hours to do the course, and it was pitch black when we got on to the 18th, there were a further 3 groups behind us. The man on the buggies said, that the following day they had a further 20 tee times added to the figures on the day we played. ( course its self was very good).

6 rounds of golf on Gran Canaria (2 persons)
Am back home now and this is a quick note to thank you for the smooth GF reservations
Adyl, Morocco, July 2018
Golf Holiday to Costa del Sol (13 persons)
We had a great time thank you. Courses [La Cala America, Europa, Asia and Santana] were excellent and hotel [La Cala] great. We really had no complaints at all.
Also all booking items (transfers, vouchers, etc.) were good. Just to let you know some of the guys always do comparisons on line and you always come at least as good or better than the competition.
Thank you very much for all your assistance and I will be shortly sending you a couple of further quote requests
Thanks for everything
Colin, U.K., June 2018
Golf in Tenerife (2 persons)
Had a great time courses [Costa Adeje, Las Americas, Golf del Sur] were in fantastic condition,but by far the best was Las Americas would definitely go back there it's just a pity it's so expensive in the winter.
Sorting out our December trip again will be in touch soon,
Andrew, U.K., June 2018
Golf on Anfi Tauro, Gran Canaria (2 persons)
I'd like to thank you guys for sorting a tee time on the 7th for us it is much appreciated.
This is the first time I have used your company and I have to say it has been a really great experience and I look forward to contacting you in the future.
Edward, U.K., June 2018
Golf on Valleromanes, Barcelona (8 persons)
The conditions were fine at Vallromanes. Greens were fantastic. Only minus was the bunkers, filled with water or way to solid.
All in all the course was wery nice.
Gylfi, Iceland, May 2018
All-Inclusive Golf Holiday staying at Sol Don Pedro Hotel in Costa del Sol, Spain (24 persons)
Than you very much for organising our trip it was very good as always.
Can you please pass on my personal thanks to the shuttle people, as they were excellent. They were always on time which took a lot of pressure of off me.
The courses [Parador Old, Lauro, El Chaparral, Calanova] were in very good condition, although it took some adjusting to get used to the no buggies on the fairways at El Chaperal.
Please accept from my personal thanks for all what you do for us.
John, England, May 2018
Golf in Algarve, Portugal (8 persons)
The trip was excellent - weather great and the golf was most enjoyable plus I won a few ££ :-)
I think in previous years, i have found something to constructively criticise at least one of the courses, but this year I dont think I need to.
[Vale do Lobo Ocean and Royal, Laranjal, O'Connor, Old, Faldo, and Victoria] Courses were all in good condition - pace of play was a little slow , but the courses are tough and even trickier with a little wind.
We played O'Connor for the 1st time since about 4 years ago - suspect we will drop it again as generally the guys didn't enjoy it as much as others finding it not as playable.
It was a windy day and the pins were tucked away, but even so we thought there were too many long iron shots into challenging greens - this was from both our single figure and higher handicap golfers.
All the other courses were enjoyed - practice facilities at Amendoira and Victoria are second to none.
In terms of next year, we will probably keep the same courses, other than swapping out O'Connor for Vilasol (as we stay on this course).
Its definitely getting busier out there, so I wont leave it too long before requesting tee times for 2019
Thanks for all your help
Neil, UK, May 2018
Golf holiday to Cascais, Portugal (8 persons)
Bonjour , un grand merci à Daniel pour l'organisation de notre séjour à Cascais.
L'hôtel Pestana [Cascais] est très bien situé ,et nous avons toujours reçu un excellent acceuil dans tous les golfs [Estoril Golf, Lisbon Sports Club, Penha Longa, Oitavos Dunes].
à bientôt pour un nouveau séjour
Pascal, France, May 2018
Golf Holiday to Algarve - staying at Dom Pedro Vilamoura Hotel, playing Old Course, Pinhal, and Victoria, with airport transfers (12 persons)
Our golf week was fantastic no problems at all I'll be in touch some time in July regarding next year.
Con, Ireland, April-May 2018
Golf and Transfers - Tenerife (6 persons)
golf holiday was great, everything went just as planned, courses [Amarilla, Costa Adeje, Las Americas] were fantastic, transfers all turned up exactly on time, very friendly drivers, looking forward to booking next year's trip.
Ronnie, UK, April-May 2018
Golf on Tenerife (2 persons)
A few quick observations............
Adeje:- great course with interesting holes - a good test.
Buenavista:- terrific course which made you think. Lovely setting but helluva trek to get there. Our favourite.
Las Americas :- A boring slog on a very flat overplayed course. 5 hours. Not a single memorable hole. Never again.
Golf Del Sur :- No technology in buggies so without own GPS a navigational nightmare on the blind tee shots. Loved Links (red) and North (blue) nines but South (yellow) was not of same standard. Huge potential but better equipped buggies needed.
Hope this helps,
Barry, U.K., April 2018
Golf on Gran Canaria (2 persons)
thanks for the consultation. Our golf vacation was great. The care on the golf courses [Maspalomas, Salobre Old & New, Meloneras, Anfi Tauro] was very accommodating. Gladly again next year.
Lutz, Germany, April 2018
Golf Holiday in Costa del Sol, Spain (3 persons)
Thank you for your email. All good thank you. [Westin La Quinta] Hotel was good and all the courses [San Roque Old & New, Valderrama, La Reserva, La Quinta] we know well so all good there. Weather wasn’t great but we made the best of it. On one day we couldn’t play as courses were closed so we moved 1 booking to our final day- we tried to get a refund on cancelling La Quinta Golf but they said they required 72 hours notice! Not sure if this was correct information- so because of this we let the booking in place. But all good otherwise. Thanks again and we will be in touch again when we head away. Thinking of the States for October- I think you do do this! If not can u recommended?
Rory, Ireland, April 2018
Golf in Costa Blanca, Spain: Roda Golf (4 persons)
That round was fine. It had been some rain in the area earlier that day, so some parts of the course was wet. But the overall condition was great.
Nothing to put my finger on.
Thanks for all help again :)
Rune, Norway, April 2018
Golf on Tenerife: Amarilla, Golf del Sur, Costa Adeje, Las Americas (6 persons)
Everything was perfect.
Thanks a lot for organizing our golf courses.
My friends also were very pleased with your services.
Georges, France, April 2018
Golf on Tenerife: Costa Adeje, Las Americas, Amarilla (4 persons)
All went really well many thanks I will recommend you to all I can
Sam, UK, April 2018
Golf Holiday to Cascais, Portugal (3 persons)
The golf holiday went well without any negative surprises.
We all agreed that this was our best golfholiday so far! The [Quinta Marinha] hotel was very nice with good standard, nice breakfast and a good golf course aswell.
All the courses we played [Oitvavos Dunes, Penha Longa Atlantic, Quinta da Marinha] had good (above average) standard.
The transfers were roomy and always on time. So there’s a good chance that we will try Lisabon again next year.
The only thing that I can complain about was the payment process. I don’t think paypal is good and would like to have other payment choices aswell.
Thanks for everything ! until next time!
Kåre, Sweden, April 2018
Golf Holiday to Costa Blanca (4 persons)
Everything was perfect thank you :) The [Alicante] golf course was very good and the [Alicante Golf] Hotel was ok.
We are planing another trip to Alicante Golf next autumn, maybe we will be 8 sometime in October, if you have good golf package for 10 - 14 days please let me know.
Thrainn, Iceland, April 2018
Golf on Alicante Golf and Bonalba Golf, Costa del Sol (2 persons)
Everything was just perfect!
Roger, Norway, April 2018
Golf on Lanzarote Golf (2 persons)
the [Lanzarote] golf course was a heck of a challenge, it was extremely windy, there were many slopes running into lava, quite picturesque but not for me.
Victor, UK, April 2018
Golf Holiday to Costa del Sol , Spain (8 persons)
[Tryp Alameda Malaga] Hotel good standard and walking distance from old town....great breakfast.
Both golf courses [Guadalhorce and La Cala Europa] excellent with a nice challenge.
Malaga town lovely.
Our group prefers the city break and travel to golf.
Philip, Ireland, April 2018
Golf and Transfers - Tenerife (16 persons)
As usual everything went very well. The hotel is excellent and all courses [Las Americas, Amarilla, Golf del Sur, Buenavista] were in perfect condition.
There was a slight issue with transfers due to the fact one of the company’s buses was garaged, but it didn’t cause any disruption as we took taxis [provided by the bus company].
Look forward to next year, I’ll be in touch soon.
Many thanks again.
Ian, UK, April 2018
Golf in Costa Blanca Spain (8 persons)
Probably wouldn’t go back hacienda [Riquelme]
But all others [Roda Golf, La Finca Golf, Lo Romero Golf, La Marquesa Golf] very good , la Finca could do with tidying up , great course but a bit aesthetically scrubby around clubhouse etc
Roda great course, all enjoyed
Thanks for all
Brendan, Ireland, April 2018
Golf on Lanzarote and Costa Teguise (2 persons)
Everything was well arranged.
We did like the Lanzarote golfcourse more than Costa Teguise Golf because of the combination lava-stones and fairways.
Our next trip will be in august to Poland and November to Canaries or Florida.
Frans, Netherlands, March 2018
Golf near Obidos, Portugal (2 persons)
Here's some feedback about our golf holidays in Portugal:
• quality and conditions of the 4 courses [Bom Sucesso, Royal Obidos, Praia del Rey, West Cliffs] were excellent (we didn't play the Campo Real due to heavy rain)
• we could tee off on all courses at the confirmed time, carts were available (recommended for Bom Sucesso, Royal Obidos and West Cliffs)
•very friendly and competent staff
the superb experience with Golf Sun Holidays resulted in another booking for October/November (Daniel)
Frank, Germany, March 2018
Golf on Fuerteventura (2 persons)
A couple of comments….
We found that the courses at Playitas and Salinas were both quite dry and therefore the fairways were pretty hard, which for medium/high handicappers such as ourselves is not ideal.
Fuerteventura golf course was in good condition which allowed for a more enjoyable golfing experience.
The level of service at all 3 courses was good.
We do hope to return next Spring and have decided that, if we do, then we will mainly play at Fuerteventura.
Booking through yourselves has been easy and stress free so we will use you again next year .
I hope the above helps.
Willie, Scotland, March 2018
Golf on Fuerteventura (2 persons)
Yes, the [Jandia] course was great thanks. Tees, fairways and greens all in good condition. The only problem was the wind! The staff there were particularly friendly and helpful too. We were able to store our clubs there between rounds, and they always arranged a taxi for us to get back to our hotel.
Ian, England, March 2018
Golf Holiday to Gran Canaria including hotel, golf and transfers (11 persons)
Thanks again for all your help. You were great. We all had a wonderful holiday and plan on going again next year!
One hiccup, though, was that one other couple and ourselves didn’t have a sea view due to the palm trees that blocked it. The other couple moved to a better view room but the other room offered to me, although on the fifth floor, was still blocked with palms, so we stayed where we were.
The [H10 Playa Meloneras] hotel admin said that they sell the rooms, although blocked by palms, as rooms with a view.
Catherine, Ireland, 28 January 2018
Golf Holiday to Fuerteventura (1 person)
The [Sheraton Fuerteventura] hotel and [Fuerteventura] golf course were superb, the staff at both were wonderful. The winds gusting to 80 km/hour made for some great fun and memories which will live on - sad for the people who cancelled on the Tuesday because of the wind, great for me because I could get a buggy ! On the Monday, we had rain on the 6th and hail on the 8th and impossible to get the waterproofs on because of the wind. Clothes dried by around the 15th, except the socks which were still wet on return to the hotel ! As a result, I barely made it up the hill of 17th and to 18th. I should perhaps have done a bit more research, but it could be worth advising others, particularly those of us with ageing bones, that the finish is tough and to consider a buggy. Maybe worth adding as a booking option if you can pre-book with the club, as they are in limited supply.
No complaints, excellent !
Kevin, Belgium, 20 January 2018
Group Golf Holiday to Gran Canaria (11 people)
Thanks very much, Carol. We now have vouchers for [H10 Playa Meloneras] hotel, [Maspalomas and Meloneras] golf and [private bus] transport and that seems to be all that we need! If anything comes to mind, you will be the first to know!
You were great to liaise with and couldn't have been more helpful. I will contact you after the hol with, hopefully, all the good news about it.
Catherine, 30 Dec 2017, Ireland
Golf holiday to Tenerife (2 people)
These few lines to tell you that we had a wonderful time in Tenerife and that your organization as well as with the [Sheraton La Caleta] hotel and all the tee times [at Buenavista, Costa Adeje, Golf del Sur and Las Americas] worked out perfectly!
Thank you very much!
The Sheraton [La Caleta] was perfect and an excellent choice! The pool was really heated to an acceptable temperature of 27-28 C. We visited also other hotels and not all of them had a temperate pool. For example Abama had several pools but not even one of them was warmer than 26 C.
What I am always missing in the advertisements of all the hotels is the temperature of the pools they offer. This could really be used to choose out of all the offers and make decision easier for the customers!
For us its always one of the decision factors and if you know about other hotels which really heat there pools ( Canary islands or other Golf destinations) I would be happy to get some names from you.
Take care and perhaps there will be some future occasions
Mattias, Switzerland, 28 November 2017
Golf Holiday to Spain and Portugal (4 people)
Everything was organized perfectly , Again :)
[Senator] Cadiz hotel was very good, parking was quite expensive 70€ three night ( not any whole day), because our car Peugeot 508 did not fit in hotels garage ( or lift to garage) and we did not like far away parking places, Cadiz old town has no room for cars. You can recommend hotel.
[Marina Club] Lagos hotel was good+ , rooms were big and nice, full kitchen and so on. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was ok. You can recommend.
[Melia Costa del Sol] Torremolinos Hotel was absolutely nice, rooms were just renewed and when I asked about that, they said that they renew hotel +0.all the time. Bre
akfast was very very good. Also they have car parking 12€/day. You can 0be sure to recommend this hotel.
GOLF LA ESTANCIA was nice course , good condition and not bad walking course.
BOAVISTA was hard to walk ( first round) , long transit from many fairways to next fairway and also lot of going up and down, we took buggy next time. Course was in good condition although there has been no rain in six month.
PALMERAS was also hard to walk (first round, others with buggy) long transits and up and down also on this course. Greens were good, but fairways was like concrete because lack of water.
ESPICHE was best of Portugal courses, Greens and fairways was excellent, Staff was super and clubhouse wonderful. This course could go also walking at this time, but earlier when it is more hot, the buggy is must.
PARADOR was in its normal condition, so in good condition.
So many thanks again for this holiday, next holiday will be 1.3.2018
and after that I will retire :)
November 2018 we have planned two week golf trip to Florida, have You any contacts there?

We had a great trip, wonderful hotels etc.
Best things though was the golf courses – especially Ballybunion was an experience.

Golf Holiday to Costa Blanca, Spain (8 people)
Thank you so much for organising such a fantastic golf trip. It was really
so well organised from start to finish. The [Servigroup La Zenia] hotel and staff were brilliant
and the [Lo Romero, Mar Menor, Las Colinas, La Finca, and Hacienda Riquelme] golf courses were top notch. Also, our travel arangements were first class.
Everyone had such a great time.
Thanks again Carol, and looking forward to arranging our 2018 trip with you help.

Golf holiday to Mallorca, Spain (2 people)
siamo tornati da Maiorca e, come sempre, è andato tutto benissimo, la tua organizzazione è impeccabile! Complimenti!
Potresti consigliarci qualche pacchetto, anche semi-all inclusive, per il periodo dal 1 settembre in avanti?
Non troppo lontano dall'Italia, al massimo a due ore di volo. Ci sono delle offerte interessanti?
Ti ringrazio fin d'ora e resto in attesa di tue notizie.
Paola, Italy, August 3, 2017
Golf holiday to Costa Blanca, Spain (2 people)
Just a note to say, thanks for the booking.
The Vista Bella still has not opened the other holes, they think it will be about November now, still a very good course.
We thoroughly enjoyed playing the fabulous Colinas course, it was very, very busy and slow, but still very enjoyable.
The LA Finca course, played well, the greens and course was not up to the standard last and previous years, and the rest of the site was
to say the least neglected, and scruffy. Dirty buggies with rubbish still in them from previous players. We were some whatdisappointed, and wonder if you have had any other reports on this course.
Derek, UK, July 4, 2017
Golf on La Finca, Las Colinas, Villamartin - Costa Blanca, Spain (6 person)
Just returned from our golf trip and would like to thank all of you for such
a quick response all went well very enjoyable golf trip.
Once again thank you for all your help will be in touch for our next trip.
Paul, UK, June 18, 2017
Golf and transfers in Costa Blanca, Spain (11 people)
As always all things were flawless from your side.
All transportation were perfect, as always, and 4 out of 5 Golf courses were fantastic.
Something to actually follow up, is our welcome at Lo Romero:
When we arrived the Pro Shop, the person there, said; “Mr. *****, 11 players and 6 Buggies. That’s €196 for the Buggies please.”
Not even a welcome.
And not checked if buggies were prepaid, as we always have… I don’t know if this is because of unclear messages from you, or what is it….
And they also pushed in at least 3 groups in before us, and we were 40-45 min delayed for our tee time.
And even thought La Finca is a great course, they could have noticed us, that the greens on the first 9 holes, were holed and sanded that morning…
Back nine were totally different with great greens.
And next year, you could promise us a little better weather ;) 13 degrades, rain and quite windy, isn’t what we hope for when going from freezing Norway, to warm spain ;)
Other than that, this was as always a great vacation.
So thanks to all of you in Golf Sun Holidays, for yet again making this a golf trip without concerns for us.
Everything went as planned, and some great golf were played :)
Rune, Norway, May 18, 2017
Golf on Gran Canaria (4 people)
We were very pleased with the arrangements which you made for us. The receptionist at Anfi Tauro remarked on how efficient the booking process was and the clarity of the communications. Well done.
Anfi had just dressed their greens so they were slower than usual. A reduction in the buggy price on both days of our visit as compensation was very welcome. It's such a spectacular course and always in excellent condition. Pace of play was acceptable and, despite the top dressing, the greens ran true.
As usual the penalty for wayward tee shots was severe. Your clients would be well advised to stock up on balls before a visit. Lost balls are a small price to pay for the stunning views, especially from the 13th and 17th tees.
The staff in the pro shop were friendly and helpful. If you can negotiate discounts for your clients, I'd appreciate it for my next visit. I couldn't get my wife out of the shop!
Meloneras was better than I remembered. I must have played poorly on previous visits! Their greens had been dressed in the week before our arrival and were getting back into good shape. The grain on the greens took a little getting used to. The place was a hive of activity as the tees were being hollow tined on the second day of our visit. It didn't affect our game, nor detract from the enjoyment of the course which, although lacking the spectacle of Anfi, is still a superb layout. The pictures on their website don't do the place justice. The stretch along the cliff top is very picturesque. That explains the many photo breaks which some parties took. It didn't help the pace of play but it is only to be expected.
Again the staff in the pro shop were excellent. I borrowed a Taylormade M1 driver on the second day. Sadly it didn't help and my wayward drives were punished. Fewer lost balls but any stray shots are punished by the placement of the palms.
We hope to return next May (or sooner if possible) and will certainly be using Golf Sun Holidays for our golf bookings. I think a 10 day stay will be required if we are to combine some of the other attractions with golf. I'll be in touch when our plans are firmed up.
Once again thank you for all of your efforts. Please feel free to quote any of our comments if you wish.

Peter, UK, May 13, 2017
Golf holiday to Costa del Sol, Spain (2 people)
we had a really good week, the [Los Monteros] hotel was great if not a bit pricey a bit too far away from any attractions if one did not have a vehicle. The golf [at Santa Clara and Marbella Golf & CC] was outstanding, everyone was lovely and we shall definitely visit again, maybe next spring.
Thanks for all you did, much appreciated.
Maureen, UK, May 13, 2017

Golf in Costa del Sol, Spain (4 people)
We came back happy and with very good experience. Weather was excellent for
golf, [La Cala Asia, Parador Malaga, Lauro, Calanova, Guadalhorce] golf courses were great and our game was not bad. We avoid golfcourses close to airport in the future, nevertheless they are nice. Car rental company Kaddy was good and friendly. Hotel La Fonda Benalmadena
Pueblo we choose is extremely nice and the village is an good option for
traveller who like some additional value. The after golf atmosphere in the
historical village is completely different from the costal mass hotels. Many
thanks for your assistance,

Just a quick thank you for booking our golf break.
Although due to a family bereavement 1 of our group had to fly home early and missed the last 2 days golf. The clubs were good about it and gave us a free buggy.

I just wanted to drop a line to say thank you for all the excellent service you gave us when booking this trip. We have now been home for a week and certainly miss the lovely weather and the daily round of golf!
We were very happy with the stay at the Sheraton Salobre and will most likely return in the future.
Once again - thank you for 5 star service!
With my very best -
