So, you’re looking to go away on a golf break? Great news - you’re in the right place! But what else do you need to know before heading on your first trip? With more than 25 years of experience, our team are perfectly placed to answer any questions you may have.

So, whether you’re hoping to go all-inclusive in Mauritius or looking to stay closer to home, check out our quick guide to booking your first golf break below.

1. Spend some time on our website

It might sound obvious, but our website really is the best place to start. It’s packed full of information, imagery, and reviews, giving you a real flavour for our 2,500+ destinations! If you already know where you’d like to go, you’re able to navigate the site through both the search functionality and our site navigation – with courses and venues grouped not only by country, but also by specific regions.

However, if you’re looking for some guidance, why not check out our article hub or latest brochure, bursting with ideas for incredible breaks and golf travel inspiration.

2. Read our reviews

Once you’ve narrowed things down, check out the reviews of your favourites on our site. Through our partners at Feefo, customers can leave thorough reviews of all our destinations, and with thousands of reviews across the site, you’ll get a flavour of every aspect of the venue.

Feefo is the world's largest verified buyer reviews platform, enabling us here at Golfbreaks to get real reviews from genuine customers. We appreciate clear, honest, and unbiased feedback from our customers on their golf break and holiday experiences.

3. Speak to an expert

At Golfbreaks, our team help more than 200,000 golfers each year get away on a trip. We know golf holidays! That’s why our Golf Travel Experts are the perfect people to help you plan your first break. We’ve been to every venue and can talk you through some of our favourite locations, as well as helping you to plan the perfect itinerary. Our team will likely ask you about your group size, preferred destinations, and travel dates – so it’s worth having these in mind beforehand. However, it’s a good idea to have an open mind, particularly around specific days of the week, as there can be some great savings to be had if you have some degree of flexibility.

To speak to the team, give us a call on 01753 752900, or fill out an enquiry form on the website and we’ll call you back whenever suits you best.

4. Confirm your group

One of the trickiest aspects of booking your first break is getting the group locked in, particularly for those travelling in larger groups. Once you’ve got your preferred dates and quotes from our sales experts, make sure to get these across to your group quickly. Experience has shown us that it’s much easier to get your group confirmed and on board once the excitement around the trip is still at its highest. This can save you lots of time (and stress!) versus continually having to chase up that last group member for confirmation.

5. Get back in touch

It’s likely that you’ll have been speaking with one of our team throughout the process, but as soon as you’ve got the thumbs up from your group, make sure to reconnect with your expert. The great news is that your work as the group organiser is almost done! We’ll ask for an initial deposit from you as the lead booker, but then our customer portal allows each member of your group to manage their own payments, adding their details and confirm rooming lists. For added peace of mind, we’re both ATOL and ABTA protected, meaning the only thing left to worry about is the opening tee-shot of the trip …
