Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) February 14, 2012
Go Ahead Tours has recently revealed a new portfolio of European Golf Vacations to Scotland, Ireland, Portugal and Spain. These new golf itineraries not only bring golfers to the best courses in Europe, including St. Andrews, Royal County Down and Valderrama; they also include guided sightseeing itineraries so golfers’ traveling companions can enjoy the trip too.
“When we looked at the market, we realized there was an opportunity for affordably priced, expertly designed golf vacation packages that include guided sightseeing itineraries for spouses and travel companions who don’t play golf,” said Christy Waller, Go Ahead’s Vice President of Marketing & Analysis. “We worked with top-ranked golf pros and amateurs to design these tours, and included courses that have hosted British Opens, Ryder Cups and major championships. At the same time, travelers who don’t golf will enjoy guided sightseeing tours of Dublin, the castles of Scotland, Spain’s Costa del Sol and more.”
Go Ahead is also rolling out new Golf Instructional Tours on select departures. Led by former touring pro and Swedish National Team coach Olle Karlsson, these Instructional Tours will help golfers of every level score better than ever before.
