Chris at Gingerbeer is a consummate professional. Responsive, thoughtful and always puts the client first. He went above and beyond in planning our golf trip to Scotland. Details and execution matter, and Chris excels.

St Andrews

Chris has been extremely helpful to book our 4 day trip to St Andrews. His advice was spot on and his website has a wealth of information on the ballot process, available tee times etc. His responses were always prompt and detailed. I would highly recommend him for any golf trip to this area!

Thanks very much for your kind review Duncan. I'm pleased you all had a great time in St Andrews. It was a pleasure to work with you and I look forward to being of service again in the future. Best regards, Chris

Trip planning excellence

I contacted Chris to plan a four day golf excursion to Southern Spain. While my initial plans were vague and conceptual, Chris listened carefully to what I was trying to achieve for a golf vacation and then planned and executed a wonderful golf holiday. Chris's planning accommodated my interests and help shape my trip into something only a detailed-oriented, golf-knowledgeable, careful planner could accomplish. Car arrangements, club rentals, tee times and course selections all exceed my expectations and created a totally stress-free and wonderful escape into the world of Spanish golf. Chris was fun and pleasant to deal with and also provided a tech-savvy app for my phone that made understanding my itinerary simple and fun. I will use Ginger Beer Golf on my next golfing trip and be confident that the trip will be executed at better than par.

Thanks so much for your great review Mark. Really pleased to hear your holiday to Marbella went so well and you got to enjoy some wonderful Spanish golf. It was a pleasure curating the trip for you and I hope to be able to help you again in the future. Best, Chris

Spanish Golf Trip

This was our second golf trip planned by Chris Toll at Gingerbeer Golf. We were a group of eight golfers on this marvelous trip to the San Roque/Sotogrande area of southern Spain. Chris is the ultimate planner. Kind, responsive and just an all round great person to work with. The courses he recommended were spot on and beautiful. We played 7 rounds of golf and stayed in the Villa Casa Roble in the San Roque club area. A wonderful fully equipped and beautifully furnished villa. A double pool and hot tub. Beautiful gardens and a gorgeous master bedroom and bathroom. All the bedrooms were spectacular with great bathrooms. The kitchen had everything needed to cook . Great laundry facilities. Very spacious for eight people or more. Pauline Taylor who checked us in was always available. Also great references for restaurants and grocery stores. The entire trip was reasonably priced. I will certainly use Chris’s expertise in the near future for either a return to St Andrews, Spain or a new trip to play in Portugal. If you want a fine golf trip then I highly recommend using GingerBeer Golf

Thanks so much for your kind review Steve. So pleased you all enjoyed the golf trip - it was certainly a long way to come from the US, but you were rewarded with some great golf on a fine group of Spanish courses - Valderrama, Sotogrande, Finca Cortesin and San Roque Club to name but a few. It's great to get your positive feedback on Casa Roble, and how it was perfect for your group; and I'm pleased our restaurant recommendations paid off too. I'll be delighted to help you with your Portugal trip planning and look forward to catching up with you again soon. Best, Chris

Priceless memories

I found Chris online when googling how to get tee times on the Old Course at St Andrews. He immediately got back to me with several options with the last option of using his service.
I decided to go with Chris making all of the arrangements and I am so glad I did.
Our time in St Andrews was everything I hoped it would be with my husband and son playing the Old Course and creating memories that they will never forget!
Every aspect was great, the driver, hotel (Arran) and the weather! If you are looking for someone to plan a golf holiday and make it as stress free as possible then Chris is your guy!

Thanks Dianna for your kind review. It was a pleasure working with you planning this trip. I’m so pleased you were happy with how it turned out, and the great memories you all now have from your time in St Andrews, on and off the course. I’ll be delighted to help you again, sometime down the line. Thanks again and best regards, Chris

Excellently organized golf vacation

Our group just returned from Scotland with a St. Andrews portion organized by Chris at Ginger Beer Golf Travel. The St. Andrews portion was very special, and all of the arrangements were perfect.

Our driver Cameron was always on time and pleasurable. The accommodations at the Fairmont were first class. But the golf made the trip, all courses were in great shape and the weather was calm with little wind and hardly any rain. The round on the Old Course was the highlight and I was able to hold it together and made par on the last three holes.

I know that they are random draws, but the caddies that I had as well as the ones in our group were all knowledgeable and fun.

We had dinner one night at the Steak Barn and had a wonderful time.

A truly unforgettable trip. Ok, I will stop gushing now.

Thank you so much for your kind review Michael. It was a real pleasure arranging the trip for you. I’m so pleased you enjoyed the Scottish golf experience and I hope I can help put another one together for you some time soon. Best wishes, Chris

Exceeded Expectations From Beginning to End

Chris did an outstanding job with the planning and implementation of our Scotland Golf Trip. He was recommended by a neighbor who also spoke very highly of Chris. He appears very well connected within the Scottish Golf Community to arrange a tee time at preferred courses including the Old Course. He also arranged a wonderful driver who together with Chris' planning made for a stress-free golf vacation. (I recommend getting a driver as a more economical and worry-free alternative to renting a van.) Chris detailed every component of our trip on paper and in a very handy app which made access to every detail of our schedule immediately accessible throughout the trip. I highly recommend Chris at Ginger Beer Golf Travel for a care-free Scottish golf vacation.

What a great review Dale. Thank you so much. You were a pleasure to deal with throughout which made my job a lot easier. Really pleased the choice to go for a van and driver paid off, rather than worrying about self-drive. That was a great decision. I'd love to arrange another trip for you again sometime. For now though, thanks again and all the best. Chris

Comprehensive knowledge of the Old Course

I am planning a complex golf trip for my upcoming retirement. Chris has been very helpful in providing me options to best assure that we gain access to the Old Course. Different options have been tossed back and forth and a solution has been figured out. Thank you, Chris for all of your help.


Thanks Mark. I really hope you pull your challenge off. Play well! Best wishes, Chris

Fantastic Service from Chris

We planned a 8 day Golf trip to St Andrews without using an expensive tour company. I found Chris and GingerBeer Golf on line on someone’s blog. Chris did all of our tee times and our balloting for the Old Course. His communication with us was excellent and our phone conversations were a pleasure. His spread sheet for our schedule was great and easy to read. I will definitely use his services for our next trip to St Andrews. I highly recommend him. He is a Gem for golfers!

Thanks Steve for your kind endorsement of my service. I'd like to also say thanks for your clear communication with me and your group. It certainly made my job a lot easier! I know you're thinking of Spain for your next trip, and I'm going to be delighted to help you with that. Thanks again and all the best. Chris

Ayrshire trip

Chris organised our trip very well, from giving his recommendations to booking the courses. He’s always quick to respond to emails and when we had enforced last minute changes he was on it despite being away on holiday. Would definitely recommend him and will use him next time.

Thanks for your kind review Giles. I'm really pleased you had a great trip, and hope I can assist you again in the future. All the best, Chris

Chris seems like a great guy! I had a question regarding a last-minute trip I was planning and stumbled upon his site. I reached out to him and he responded right away. I would certainly do business with Chris someday for a more planned out trip! Thank you so much!

You're very welcome Mike. Thank you kindly for taking the time to comment. Wishing you a memorable trip with your uncle and some great golf thrown in. Best wishes, Chris
