Wk2 Central North Island & Hawkes Bay NZ Golf Tour - 17th - 24th Nov 2018
17 Nov 2018 - 24 Nov 2018

Type: Escorted Golf Tours | Country: New Zealand

David Short Golf began in the early ‘90’s, and at all times I have imagined how wonderful it would be to embark on a tour to New Zealand. Well, 30 years on, it’s finally happening! I am thrilled to present the tour to New Zealand in November 2018. The tour will cover both the North Island and the South Island over a period of three weeks, although as ever if you wish to travel for an amended duration, this will not be a problem at all.

New Zealand is home to a stunning array of golf courses. From the most magnificent ocean-side layouts to those courses carved out of the mountainous backdrop of Queenstown. New Zealand is quite simply one of those destinations that must be done at least once in one’s golfing lifetime. Marquee golf courses such as Kauri Cliffs, Cape Kidnappers and Jack’s Point have been designed to make the most of the natural terrain and to show off the amazing scenery. As well as the golf, we will experience the sublime natural environments of the Country, the exquisite food and wine and the warm hospitality. With dramatic scenery, greenery, long stretches of coastline, soaring mountains and fabulous golf courses, New Zealand is a must, even if it has taken 30 years for the tour to commence!

Tavira Portugal Christmas Golf Week - 22nd December 2018
22 Dec 2018 - 29 Dec 2018

Type: Escorted Golf Tours | Country: Portugal – Algarve

For Christmas 2018 we return to the superb Robinson Club in Tavira. The Robinson Club, which has also been our ‘Christmas home’ for many years now, as well as the location of a number of our Portuguese ‘Golf & Coaching’ weeks, provides high class accommodation, superb service, excellent cuisine and a wonderfully relaxing setting. The terms of stay are also ‘All-Inclusive,’ thus providing excellent value for money. This year we will play two rounds each on Quinta da Cima and Quinta da Ria, both of which are on-site, as well as a round on the superb Quinta do Lago South course, which is just a short drive away.

Throughout the Tour, there will also be the opportunity for some informal golf lessons. Simply let me know if you would like some tuition and if so, clinics will be arranged accordingly.

This year we are running two Christmas tours, with indeed two New Year tours. Whilst I am hosting the Tavira tour, Barney will be hosting a week based in Vilamoura, playing five courses local to the area. For both the Christmas and New Year weeks, we want to provide the option of either having an on-site venue, or the opportunity to stay in a central hotel, playing five local courses.

Vilamoura Portugal Christmas Golf Week - 22nd December 2018
22 Dec 2018 - 29 Dec 2018

Type: Escorted Golf Tours | Country: Portugal – Algarve

For Christmas 2018 we are running two Golf Weeks, one based in Vilamoura, which is being hosted by Barney, and one at the Robinson Club in Tavira, which is being hosted by myself. The concept this year is to offer one ‘on-site’ tour and one tour where a range of different courses are played.

Barney therefore invites you to join him in Vilamoura, where the tour is based at the quite superb 5-star Hilton Vilamoura Hotel. The golf itinerary features the old favourites of the South and Laranjal courses at Quinta do Lago, the Royal and Ocean courses at Vale do Lobo, as well as a round on the prestigious Old Course in Vilamoura.

With regards to dining, we have booked three dinners at the hotel, one of which is a special Christmas Eve Dinner. Barney will book restaurants on the other four evenings, thereby providing the opportunity to have both the convenience of dining in the hotel, but also the opportunity to dine out at some fine establishments during the course of the week.

Throughout the Tour, there will also be the opportunity for some informal golf lessons. Simply let Barney know if you would like some tuition and if so, clinics will be arranged accordingly.

As has become the tradition over the years, the New Year Tour that I host will be based in Vilamoura.

With regards to the golf, for this years’ tour we will play all five of the newly named Dom Pedro course, Laguna, Millennium, Pinhal, Victoria and the Old course.

With all of our events, we do our utmost to ensure that we have good quality accommodation an exciting and interesting golf courses to play. But we also put a huge emphasis on the social side of the tour and aim to ensure that everyone feels ‘part of the family’. We dine, drink, smile and laugh together and collectively enjoy what should be a fine social week of golf.

Throughout the Tour, there will also be the opportunity for some informal golf lessons. Simply let me know if you would like some tuition and if so, clinics will be arranged accordingly.

We will stay at the Vila Gale Tavira Hotel, which is ideally located for the superb restaurants in the town, that we will frequent in the evenings.

As mentioned above, we will explore different restaurants each evening and enjoy some excellent food and wine. Indeed the ‘Algarve Golf Week’ in many respects is all about the camaraderie of the clients who book. We will play five super rounds of golf, enjoy our evenings together and soak up the ambience of Tavira, but it is friendships renewed and newly made that make the week such a success year after year.

For the 2019 winter season we want to ensure that we have some week long European Golf Week options to escape the winter blues, as well as the longer-haul Golf Tours.

And the destination for February is Gran Canarias, where the weather is on average a very pleasant 18-degrees during the day. We are returning to the excellent 4-star Lopesan Costa Meloneras Resort, and we will play five rounds of golf during the week. Considering recent requests, four of the rounds will be played on the Resort’s two courses, Meloneras and Maspalomas and one at the most enjoyable Anfi Tauro golf course. Indeed, three of the rounds will be played on the Meloneras course, which is a super course and well worth playing on several occasions. We also have private transfers booked to the golf courses each day.

The terms of stay are ‘Dinner, Bed & Breakfast’, which allows for a more relaxed pace in the evenings, and dinner can be taken earlier than if we were dining off-site each evening. As with all our events, we put a considerable focus on the social experience, as well as playing some superb golf courses. Our aim is always for you to have a wonderful week of golf, dining and socialising in the company of like- minded golfers.

Type: Escorted Golf Tours | Country: USA – Southern California

Southern California! The imagery is of wine-making country, the beautiful Pacific Ocean coastline, elegance, charm, sophistication and living the American dream. And it’s all true! Add in some quite wonderful golf courses, super hotels and three quite distinct regions of California to stay in, and we have a golf tour that should live long in the memory.

The golf tour commences in Palm Springs and then moves on to the Temecula wine region, with the third week being on the coast in Santa Barbara. The golf will be played a variety of different courses, each of which provides a super playing experience and importantly, a real feel of being in Southern California.

It is not just the golf and the wonderful regions that we visit that make our golf tours such special occasions, but the camaraderie of the tour members.  Each evening Barney will book different restaurants, the experiences of which are always great fun and indeed we put great emphasis on the social side of the golf tours, to ensure that they are enjoyed by all.

The tour is structured so that you can book all three weeks, or perhaps weeks 1 and 2 or 2 and 3 for example. Please tell us what you would prefer, and we will make the appropriate bookings.
