Mid-April through Mid-October is peak travel season when the golf clubs are open and the weather is appropriate for golf (although perfect weather can’t be guaranteed!). July and August can be quite busy with tourists and September is a busy month at the golf clubs, so we recommend May and June if possible.
Our vehicles fit group’s of all sizes so there is no perfect group size. The larger the group, though, the earlier you will need to book your trip to ensure availability.
Absolutely. Your group’s driver will be available to the non-golfers while the golfers are at the course, meaning a fairly full sightseeing itinerary is feasible in conjunction with any golfing itinerary.
The easy answer is: the earlier the better. Let’s be a bit more specific though. Hotels and golf course tee sheets begin to fill up for the busy peak season 6-9 months in advance. To ensure optimal tee time availability, we recommend booking in the fall in the year prior to travel.
