"If you play golf you are my friend" - Harvey Pennick
Like many of you, when I hit my first pure shot, I was hooked on the greatest game ever. I wanted to play the best courses that I could and develop my game as far as I could. Over the years I have been privileged to play all over the world, in China, Thailand, India, USA, the UK and in Europe.
Up until now it was never possible to play multiple courses in different countries in one trip because of the logistics involved, yet there were still so many beautiful courses that were on my list to play. After spending years working in the travel industry, I decided to take my extensive experience and combine it with my passion of golf to create LGT Golf, and provide the answer to the logistics question.
Our tours curate the best hotels and golf courses in the region of the tour. We take care of everything so you merely have to show up and enjoy your holiday. Fully escorted by a golf concierge and driver, enjoy a luxurious holiday with us on either a golf river cruise or a bucket list land tour.
Our golf river cruises take place on 3 magnificent rivers, The Danube, The Rhine and The Exotic Mekong. Visiting UNESCO World Heritage sites, unique cities and towns, you can experience travel in a luxurious manner meandering down the river. On nearly alternate days you will play golf on courses that feature in the Golf Digest International Best in Country, have hosted a PGA European Tour Event, or are ranked in the European top 100 golf courses. The ships are the best on the river, with more money spent on food and wine than any other river cruise company.
Our land tours are equally magnificent, where you can choose from The Alpine Tour Starting in either Vienna or Zürich and discovering the best of Alpine golf. We do not stay in cities on this tour but purposely stay in the countryside.
The Royal and Ancient Castles Tour is a bucket list of golf courses in the Worlds and European top 100 lists. Designed by master Architects such as Simpson, Colt, Mackenzie and Alison, your stay in 14th Century Castles or luxury Hotels, sampling Michelin Starred restaurants - the trip is simply amazing in all aspects.
Our Ireland Tours are designed to give you access to the worlds best links golf courses not only the highly regarded Royal County Down or Ballybunion, but also gems like Carne Links, The European, Ballyliffin, Castlerock, and Royal Portrush. We will also add some inland parkland courses such as Adare Manor, Druids Glenn, or the K club. There are some truly great golf courses in Ireland and Northern Ireland, and combine the loving Irish hospitality and some truly magnificent accommodation, these trips will have you coming back for more. Once is certainly not enough when it comes to Ireland and Golf.
Our tours and products are chosen to give you a truly great golfing holiday with the emphasis on Golf, accommodation and food and wine. But we don't stop there and add unique experiences in each destination away from the golf course. A whisky tasting at a private distillery that also specialises in Gins, a chocolate making tour with experts from the most famous chocolate country in the world or a private boat ride through the canals of Amsterdam. In Vietnam and Cambodia we play golf in some of the most prestigious golf courses, enjoy the exotic scenery, and have private tours to the more unique sights such as the Angkor Wat Temple.
I very much believe that a holiday such as ours need to be perfect in every way. After all its your time that you invest into them. So each and every tour has been personally selected and tested. As a panellist for Golf Digest International I bring my extensive knowledge from rating these courses to choosing those that are the best for our tours. My extensive travel experience and 1000's of nights in hotels across the world let me choose the right hotels - all to give you a perfect holiday.
The industry has recognized us with World Golf Awards for best Inbound Golf Tour Operator for the last 3 years in Germany, Czech Republic, and Cambodia. I am proud and thankful to everyone at LGT Golf and our partners in the Industry that allow us to make peoples golfing holidays come true.
I look forward to welcoming you to one of our tours in the future.
