European golf programs
Golfing the great courses of Ireland and Scotland requires planning ahead. Often the tee times you are looking for may have to be requested a year in advance. And we know it is hard to get your golfing gang to commit to anything a year in advance. That is why we have developed an exciting program to turn your idea for a European Golf Trip into a reality.
The Golf Trip to Ireland and/or Scotland is on almost every golfer’s Bucket List. Unfortunately, for some that is exactly where it stays. At The Golf Group we have created a planning process that will assist you getting this trip off your “bucket list” and on to your “looking forward to list”.
So many times, the best laid plans for such a trip fall apart, as it is difficult to get the group to commit to something so vague and so far out in the future. To address these problems, The Golf Group has created a planning process that is designed to get potential players familiar with all aspects of the trip months in advance of the deadline for actually committing to the trip.
Let The Golf Group assist you in planning this adventure…
- Our European Golf Trip program
Our European Golf Trip Program has become a popular tool to help groups get organized in a timely manner for their European Golf Trip. Here’s how it works…
- Tell us what you have in mind. Number of players, target dates, area, must play courses and budget.
- We will design an itinerary based on your preferences. This itinerary will be posted on a personalized trip website.
- You can direct possible trip participants to the website to get familiar with the trip, the dates, the cost, etc.
- The website will ask for input on all facets of the trip and will ask viewers to submit a form that indicates their interest level.
- The website will also let the viewers know that there is a date on which we will be asking for commitments for participation.
- Responses are logged and interested parties are kept up to date with trip details and reminded of upcoming registration deadlines.
- When you reach your registration date, participants will be asked for a down payment to confirm their spot.
- What you will find is that we will be able to compile a list of possible participants and rank them by their level of interest.
- The possible participants will have a great heads-up in regard to the trip as it concerns home, work and budget.
- Many times date conflicts can be avoided just by having the trip tentatively on their calendar.
- When the time comes to commit, you will get a number that will sign up immediately because they have been thinking about this for plenty of time.
- Once that happens, the rest of the slots will fill up very quickly because players will see that there is a limited number of spots and also will be able to see who has committed. As you know it is always, “who else is going.”
- Once you fill, start a waiting list— inevitably when you plan something this far in advance, someone will have to cancel. The wait-list makes it easy to keep the trip full.
The program gives possible participants plenty of time to plan, along with a definite decision date. It also allows us to file tee time requests in a timely manner, resulting in the best chance of getting on the courses of your choice.
Many consider The European Golf Trip to be a Milestone Trip—and indeed it is. The good news is that you can decide which milestone it commemorates!
