Chuck R. BI 2023

“We are back home and enjoying reminiscing our trip. Our accommodations were incredible! The tee times were great and the reservation you made for us at Tomatin was perfect. Thank you for your effort to get us on the Old Course. The drivers, particularly David in Scotland, were knowledgeable and accommodating, although the Irish accent was a little hard to get used to, and the vans were very comfortable. We would definitely recommend you to anyone we know that might wish to travel to the British Isles. Thank you.”

Bill S. Ireland 2023

“What a great trip. Four of us – my son, son in law, nephew, and me, the old man. Everything was perfectly organized and ran like clockwork. Jonathan was great on the pre planning, with good suggestions and he was very flexible. The itinerary was exactly what we wanted, our driver Mick was perfect for our group and kept us on schedule and the hotels and meals were great. We discussed it afterward and would’t have done anything differently. Thanks to all at Cloud 9 Golf and Travel.”

“I was one of the 11 people from NYC that traveled to Scotland golf trip with the Zeng Group in July. We had a few drivers and they were all very good. I want to specially mention Aaron, who had been with us from St Andrews to Inverness and back to Edinburgh. He has very good driving skill, pleasant and patient, always on time, prepared water, soft drinks and snacks for us, even took a group photo and framed it as a gift to each of us. We had such a wonderful time in Scotland.”

“Trip was fantastic. We lucked out with weather and the accommodations were great. Our driver, Donald, was such a pleasure. He really made our trip fun and went out of his way to make sure our non golfers made the most of their time while we were hacking away. It was a great trip, all that I expected and more. No doubt we will be working with you once more!”

Chris M.

“We took a “guys trip” to Scotland back in April, 2019 with the assistance of Jonathan. It was an absolute blast and a trip for the ages. We had 8 guys, stayed in 3 hotels and played 8 courses, including 5 courses that hosted The Open. We had a driver with us the entire time who got us where we needed to go and wasn’t late once. Trip was seamless and we will be using Jonathan again for a 2021 trip to Ireland.”

“Thank you, Jonathan and Cloud 9 Golf & Travel. We had the most amazing family getaway in Punta Cana. The accommodations were great, very clean, comfortable with stunning views of the Caribbean from our balcony. The courses at Corales and Punta Espada were simply incredible! The Dominican people are truly kind and hospitable. Can’t wait to come back to play Teeth of the Dog!”

“It is hard to imagine a better group to hire for a golf trip to Ireland than Cloud 9 Golf and Travel. Not only did they get us on our preferred list of courses, but they helped us to do so during a challenging time to travel internationally. Excellent communication before, during and after the trip. Will definitely use them again for our next trip.”

“Speaking for all four of us I want to thank you for doing such a great job setting up the details for our Ireland trip. I am sitting here in The Dublin Airport sifting through the photos and reflecting on how much fun we all had. I’m not sure there’s anything that we should’ve done differently.”

Chris M. SCO 2023

“Our trip was fantastic! Every course we played was super challenging and fun, but the highlight was getting to play the Old Course at St Andrews. Our driver was awesome—very personable and accommodating. The locations of our two different accommodations were perfect. Chris did a good job communicating with everyone and did his best at the impossible task of making everyone happy :)”

Nick H. SCO 2022

“The trip was great, to get an opportunity to play at the home of golf was a very cool experience. Between getting us set up for rental clubs the couple days my dad and I didn’t have clubs because of the airline hiccup to getting the last minute switch on the Kingsbarns tee time, everyone at Cloud 9 went above and beyond my expectations. Not to mention all the work with the numerous Covid related delays we had, we really appreciated all the additional work. Definitely hope to go back again someday in the future.”

Nick B. Ireland 2023

“This trip to Ireland could not have gone any better. Jonathan and the Cloud 9 team did a great job organizing the trip and their communication throughout the process was outstanding. There was a great blend of golf and activities for the non-golfers. Our driver Matthew was great and a tremendous help in dining and activity recommendations.”

Terry M. IRE 2022

“A quick note to personally thank you on behalf of all of the guys for a phenomenal experience. Your team took our course choices and worked them in to an enjoyable rotation and I know that isn’t easy, given all of the many factors that affect tee times, hotel availability etc. Your response times were amazing and all of the guys commented on their appreciation of the detail and helpful hints provided along the way. Our driver Sean became one of the group, he was always on time and blended professionalism with a great sense of humor. Thanks again for everything.”

“I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had in Ireland. After our flight was cancelled, you came to the rescue and rescheduled our tee time at Old Head, which we got to just in time and finished all 18 holes before sunset. The restaurants were all excellent and the hotels were very nice! And our driver Mike was terrific! Thanks so much for all your work in planning what was a truly unforgettable trip; and in particular the work arounds given our flight cancellation. Thanks again for all your efforts. You did a great job!”

“Jonathan, I am going to follow up with you personally to provide our feedback from the trip. I will say this, it was a great trip. I personally looked at the trip as a once in a lifetime, and Cloud 9 did not disappoint in providing a great golfing experience. All of the guys had positive comments on how much they enjoyed the trip. We were very lucky we found Cloud9 or Cloud9 found us. You made our trip complete, especially with the local transportation. We couldn’t have done this without your services. If only you could have influenced the weather a little more!”

“Thank you, Jonathan, for an excellent trip. Our final round we got 9 holes in at Punta Espada and then they had record rainfall for most of the afternoon and evening – then we got to finish the back nine early Friday morning before flying back. That may be one of the most beautiful and best maintained golf courses I have ever played. The boys and I had a great time and can’t thank you enough.”

Patrick G.

“Hi Jonathan. I just wanted to let you know that we absolutely loved our trip to Scotland! The weather was outstanding! The hotels you books were great. Our favorite was Rusacks in St. Andrews. All of the Golf Courses you selected were outstanding….especially North Berwick. The Caddies were awesome! Most of all, we loved our driver, Derek. He was so friendly and he took great care of us. He made reservations for dinner at some fantastic restaurants, made sure that our tee times and caddies were good to go, and he went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed Scotland. We had a “lovely” time with him! You did an fantastic job and I just wanted to that thank you!”

Patrick G.

“Jonathan and his staff arranged what was definitely the best golf trip I’ve ever been on – to Saint Andrews, Scotland. Everything was taken care of – lodging, transportation, teetimes, caddies… even seemed like they took care of the weather too. The most complicated thing we had to figure out during the entire trip was where to eat dinner!”

Peach R.

Rusty C. IRE 2022

“We thoroughly enjoyed the Irish golf trip, Jonathan. From the courses you selected to the hotel accommodations, I thought it was very well planned. Killarney is a beautiful location and we enjoyed going back to our room each night, instead of constantly packing and traveling. Travel to our courses was not a problem and let us see the country. Finally, the European Club was a highlight. Glad you were able to help us out!”

Rusty C.

“What can I say! Wow what a great experience. When I think of our golf in Cabo I think of the great views of the Ocean and the desert above and all I can think about is going back…If you have a group then Cloud 9 is the way to book. Thanks guys!”

“The team at Cloud 9 Golf and Travel were exceptional. They handled everything and were first class. When we had a tee time changed, they set up new times and transportation in an instant. When we had questions, they were answered 24/7! I will recommend and use them from now on for all my golf travel. Our trip was everything and more! The only thing we had to do was have fun and relax.”

“Since I first started playing golf in my 20s, playing Ballybunion has been at the top of my “bucket list.” Now in my 60s, with the great help from Cloud 9, and Jonathan, my dream became a realty. Not only did he put together a great trip to play 4 magnificent courses, he took care of all the details for me to take my kids and grandkids so that the golfers and non-golfers all had the trip of a lifetime…Our driver, Martin, was fantastic with the non-golfers – which included a one year old and two year old….In short, Jonathan put together the trip of a life time, taking care of more than just the golfing details. I could not have asked for better service.”

“Our trip was fantastic. Jonathan did a great job putting our trip together. He got us all the hotel and tee times that we asked for and gave us some very nice dinner recommendations. The entire trip from stat to finish was 5 stars. We were also very pleased with our driver Caroline. She turned out to be quite the tour guide and was extremely accommodating and delightful. We have ready shared the praises for Cloud 9 Golf and Travel with our friends. We look forward to our next trip!”

“Jonathan was kind enough to arrange bucket list golf trips for my group, including my 83 year old father in law twice—first to all the great course in Scotland and the next year the Irish version. Although we will be arguing forever about which was better—Old Head or the Old Course (they are both amazing) the universal consensus was that this was Class A treatment at every step. From the driver who met us at the airport and stayed with us the whole trip to the hotels, meals, attention to detail and of course, the golf. We did five courses on each trip and cannot wait to go back for more. If you are thinking about a life time golf trip that was surprisingly affordable, don’t call anyone else but Jonathan.”

“We had the absolute best trip in Ireland, all thanks to Cloud 9! We got to play at some very famous courses that were super fun and challenging. We really enjoyed our hotels and the independence of driving ourselves throughout Ireland’s countryside. Cloud 9’s execution was flawless- From excellent communication throughout the planning process to the actual trip. We are already planning a golf trip for next year with Cloud 9!”

Paul T. IRE 2024
We had an absolute gem of a driver who made the trip easy and interesting ( making suggestions on the fly) and provided top notch service. I would request him personally on my next trip to Ireland. We had the right balance for the golfers and the wives with highlights including the Dingle Penninsula, Doolin music, Kinsale ( Fishy Fishy-was outstanding) and golf at Old Head was spectacular plus the Cliffs of Moher. Lowlights…none.  Ok…the weather wasn’t great (windy) for our 1st 3 rounds…but not unexpected! Jonathan was awesome to work with.  Tee times were great and all hotels were very comfortable….especially the Plaza In Killarney.

Gary R. Ireland 2023

“Thank you and Cloud 9 Golf for arranging our golf trip to Ireland. Everything was perfect! We played six rounds of golf on the western coast and all the courses were excellent. Our tee times and caddie choices all measured up to what we had requested. The lodging choices also were excellent! The self-drive van easily accommodated the four of us, our golf clubs and luggage. We look forward to working with you again!”

Randy F. Scotland 2024

“We appreciate the wonderful week that you set up for us. The Lorimer House in St. Andrews was perfect and Scott was a wonderful host. Thanks for putting us on Kingsbarns, even though it was a bit rainy and cool that day, we certainly enjoyed it. It is much like the Bandon Dunes courses on the Oregon coast. We got to play with a SA local who invited us to join he and his wife at “The New St Andrews Club” the next day, quite a treat! Of all the many places that we saw and things we experienced, our time in St Andrews was our favorite and I’m almost comfortable driving on the Left side now….”almost”.  Thanks again to you And Lindsay! !  For all of your time and assistance in making our trip so memorable!”

Bill C Ire 2024

“We are on the flight home as we speak and I didn’t want to let the time pass without thanking you both for your help in creating an incredible 60th birthday celebration with my family and closest friends–truly a memorable experience!  Golf in the Northwest was spectacular, the hotel accommodations were great in every way, our driver and the coach were perfect for our group and of course the people and the pubs were exactly what we were looking forward to. Your advice and guidance was spot on and you were both so very easy to work with –and I especially appreciate how you were able to scramble and help me with my “oversights” and last minute changes!!! And in case anyone asks about traveling with non-golfers, it worked out perfectly and I think our 2 guys probably enjoyed the trip the most!  We even got them to join us for 9 holes at Cruit Island. Thank you again!”
