Just now found a few minutes to get back to you with some feedback on our trip. In a nutshell, it was outstanding. With the exception of the last-minute confusion with Andy on the 13 July airport transfers, everything went off without a hitch from a logistics standpoint. Though I brought the hotel and golf course vouchers with me just in case they were requested, all the inn keepers and starters were expecting us, and we had no difficulties whatsoever getting where we needed to be each day.
From meeting Colin upon arrival at The Dunvegan on Friday night to our daily rides through the countryside with Andy, the service we received from these gentlemen was exceptional. My back is still a bit sore from the lads slapping me on it, with all the congratulations I recieved for putting together such a great trip.
The guys definitely want to book another journey, this time to Ireland and perhaps a little earlier in the year (late May-early June), so feel free to forward some suggested itineraries and course options at your convenience. Thanks again, Adrian, for all your help and support in planning this trip. A great time was had by all, including yours truly."
"Adrian, I just want to thank you for the best trip we could have ever dreamed of. Everything was perfect. We upgraded our room at Rusacks and they gave us the Tom Morris Jr. Suite which was perfect. Every morning we got up and saw the 18th green, the 1st tee and the beautiful Ocean. Also it had a balcony that we could go out on and take pictures of the great scenery. We loved it so much. The breakfast was so good and we are so glad you set our tee times a little later so we had time to eat and practice.
The lock green Estate was wonderful. The rooms were beautiful and large just like you said. The people in all the hotels were so nice and helpful, it was overwhelming. Turnberry’s room was just perfect even though we didn’t spend much time their. The food in all the hotels was so good especially at Lockgreen. Thank you so much for the dinner upgrade. You did such a wonderful job we will recommend you to anyone going to Scotland for a perfect vacation.
But last but not least we want to say thank you for Stuart. He was the best personal driver and tour guide we could have ever expected. He was so nice and helpful with suggestions for great dinners and took pictures of us for great memories we can have forever. He was always their when we needed him and thank you for letting him take us to the airport when we left. We felt so much better with him rather than someone we didn’t know. He is a great asset to your company. We will be back sometime in the future and will call you when we do. We would never use anyone else.
Sorry for the hard time I gave you, I should have just trusted you and probably it would have been less stress on you and me. The only problem we had was with the US Travel agent. Maury turned us over to someone else and she was not experienced and that was too bad. I would never use them in the future. Other than that again thank you and you will hear from us soon."
"Adrian, Just to let you know the entire trip was excellent (except for (1) the fact that BA misplaced our golf bags at Heathrow, requiring us to sit around Glasgow for 7 hours, and (2) the rain the first two days, neither of which was your responsibility. The accommodations were excellent, the food was surprisingly excellent, and the golf of course was terrific. My son got to play the Old Course twice (he went out early the second morning we were there) and the trip was everything he looked forward to. You did a great job. Thank you."
"Adrian, Just wanted to say thank you for all that you did in organizing our group's recent trip to Scotland. Simply put, it was our best golf trip ever. I especially want to note Stuart Gatherum, our driver. He was absolutely phenomenal and treated us wonderfully. His interaction with the group made a good trip great. Also Alex and Helen from the Russell Hotel were extremely hospitable as well. The courses and weather were great as well. Thanks again for a wonderful vacation package. Look forward to returning again."
"Adrian, We had a wonderful time, thank you. Russ played the Old Course the 1st day after about a three hour wait. The day he was supposed to play Jubilee there was a tournament and it was closed, so he played the New course with a wonderful family group that nearly adopted him. He liked Kingsbarns a lot, and again met a great fellow who took him to the member’s only St Andrews golf Club. Altogether a grand experience. We fell in love with Scotland."
I was one of the members of the Greg Moyle golf group from the US who recently contracted with AGS for a golf trip to Scotland. I wanted to drop you a note about the wonderful experience that I had on my recent golf outing to Scotland. AGS Golf is one class outfit, I could not have been more pleased with the outcome. In fact the trip so exceeded my expectations that I can’t say enough great things about AGS.
I will recommend AGS Golf to all my business associates and golf buddies for their golf trips to the UK. I also wanted to let you know what a gem you have in Frank Roberts. Frank is
a great tour guide/golf instructor/driver/ and overall guardian. Frank took excellent care of us over the past 10 days and is clearly an asset to AGS Golf. I’m looking forward to signing up for another AGS Golf outing in the future. Thanks for a wonderful experience"
I wanted to let you know that we had a great trip and the golf package was outstanding. Our van was little small but we managed by doing some rearranging and repacking and “sucking up”. They were having an air show at Port Rush on Sunday when we got there and the town was slammed with people so it was difficult finding our way around the area.
If I ever do this again, I don’t think I want to play the same day of arrival. The courses
were awesome and the food and hospitality was great. Never had a bad meal. Thank you for a trip of a lifetime. I will gladly recommend AGS to anyone interested in a golf package to Europe.
"Adrian, We have all arrived back at our various destinations with great thoughts of our time in Scotland. Thanks to you and your staff for your suggestions, arrangements, help. We will gladly recommend you to anyone we know who wants to have a great golf experience."
Just a thank you note. Our trip was fabulous and exceeded our expectations. Everyone had positive comments about the lodging, bus drivers, golfing and weather. Every detail for the most part was right on schedule with no hassles. Only 2 comments for future trips. No one met us at the airport baggage terminal when we arrived.
The bus driver was in the bus parking lot waiting. Secondly, the bus “van” the second week was a little too small. However, the driver (Angus McDonald) was excellent and very entertaining, and made up for some of the inconvenience. Again, thanks to you and your staff for a marvellous and memorable trip. If you ever need a recommendation, do not hesitate to ask. Sal."

"Lynne, Just a note to say thanks for everything. Trip was fantastic."
