Scotland - July 2022

My brother & I were referred to Ginger Beer Golf (Chris) and the results were fabulous! We wanted (3) rounds in the Glasgow area and (3) rounds in the St. Andrews area. We were willing to try the ballot process to possibly play The Old Course and Chris was kind enough to submit our ballot. The courses we played were Royal Troon, Turnberry, Prestwick, The Old Course, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns! We never had any issues with our tee times or our hotel reservations! Chris, also, lined up taxis throughout our trip for safe travels throughout Scotland! Thanks so much!!! The Williams brothers ⛳️

Marty and Dave, Thanks for your kind review. It was a pleasure taking care of you. Over 2 years delayed because of Covid. I'm so pleased you had a great trip, topped off by getting picked for an Old Course ballot time - you deserved getting lucky after so many postponements. I hope I can help you again sometime. Best wishes, Chris

Exceptional Golf Trip

Chris planned a trip to Scotland for 8 of us in 2020. Due to COVID it was cancelled and rebooked a couple of times, and FINALLY we were able to travel in 2022. Throughout the process, Chris was in constant communication with changes and rebookings. The hotels and transportation arranged by Chris all exceeded our expectations. He also managed our tee times throughout Scotland as well as the daily lottery at St Andrews. We really can't say enough good things about Chris and the service he provides. We highly recommend Ginger Beer Golf for your next golf trip and we can't wait to use him again.

Wow, thanks so much Nicole for your great review! It's been a pleasure. I'm pleased the planning, re-planning and re-re-planning culminated in a great trip, with a prime-time Saturday Old Course ballot tee time being the cherry on top. Thank you for your help and diligence in keeping your group informed and updated, and managing their expectations along the way. All the best. Chris

Sotogrande Golf

Together with three golf mates we wanted to play the premier courses in the Sotogrande area, including the bucket list Valderrama. Chris managed to get us perfect tee off times at it and La Reserva and Real Sotogrande - and even to arrange a same day change when we were hit with unscheduled biblical storms and rain on the first two days of our trip. Extremely professional and courteous throughout, he clearly is the “go to” guy for people who want quality bespoke golf trips, and he comes highly recommended. There is no question we will use him again when planning our next trip to the championship links courses around Liverpool in the North West, including another bucket list course, Royal Birkdale. Many Thanks Chris.

Thanks so much for your really positive review, Tony. I'm so pleased you got to enjoy some great golf after your initial weather-related blip. I will be delighted to assist you in again in the future. All the best, Chris.

Golf in Fife

We are ten men from Norway who have had a fantastic stay in Scotland and played challenging and very good golf courses. We have booked this through Ginger Beer Golf. Chris who runs Ginger Beer Golf is very professional and 100% serious. He responds quickly and is very solution-oriented. We had to move on our trip three times due to Covid-19 and Chris solved this in a very good way. I can highly recommend Ginger Beer Golf for your next golf trip. We'll use him again.

Thanks Svein Harald. We got there in the end! So glad you had a great time - congratulations on your hole in one.

Scotland golf done seamlessly

I was fortunate to jump in on an open spot for a recent golf trip with 7 other great guys. Dornoch and St Andrews for fabulous golf, reliable travel arrangements and good hotel accommodations. All went without a hitch making the experience even better than expected.

So pleased you had a great experience Greg. You played some stellar courses! Thanks so much for your kind review. All the best, Chris

Scotland Golf and Gingerbeer

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.

Thanks John for your kind review. 2 years between planning and execution and many Covid-related twists and turns to negotiate. Thank you for being the group lead on this trip. You made my job much easier to carry out. I hope playing Old Course, Royal Dornoch, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns (to name but a few) will provide you with some great memories of your trip. Best, Chris

Bucket list golf experience

8 guys, 2 cities, 9 rounds of Championship links golf over 6 days, the experience was PRICELESS.. Thanks to Chris at Ginger Beer for making it all work flawlessly.

You are very welcome Dave! Thanks for your kind review. Best, Chris

Golf trip - Covid delayed

8 of us were planning to go to Scotland in Aug 2020. Covid caused the trip to be canceled so Chris did a phenomenal job keeping us informed on our options, rescheduling everything for us. Golf was fabulous, the hotels were great, transportation reliable and comfortable and dining recommendations top notch. I will do this again and will be using Chris at Ginger Beer. Thank you for making a bucket list trip so memorable.

Thanks so much for your kind review Jeff. I'm really pleased the trip was memorable for you. I'll be delighted to help you plan another trip in the future - there are so many great courses in Scotland to choose from. All the best, Chris

St Andrews Golf Trip

Getting tee times at St. Andrews so we can plan our Scotland vacation is tough enough - throw in a health dose of COVID 19 and 2020 tee time transfers to 2021, and the challenge becomes almost unsurmountable. Thankfully, I stumbled across Ginger Beer Golf Travel and engaged with Chris in helping us get our heads wrapped around the various options. Chris was extremely helpful and navigated us to a successfully scheduled four day golf package which will now allow us to plan the remaining days of or Trip. Chris's knowledge and ability to answer questions we had, and even those we didn't, but still needed to know, helped us immensely. Hats off to Chris for his professional and personal touch.

Thanks so much Mike for your generous review. Yes, finding a tee time for 2021 is quite a challenge but we got there, thanks in no small measure to your thorough understanding of the options, flexibility and great communication. It was a pleasure to assist you and I hope you have a great trip next year. All the best, Chris

Understanding the Ballot System

I have been looking to see how to best secure a tee time for the Old Course without paying the high prices of “Authorized Provider” packages that didn’t fit our plans. I came across Chris’ website and was amazed at the amount of information provided. My direct communications were even more informative. He is extremely knowledgeable, forthcoming with information and quick to respond to all inquiries. After previously being shut out to play the Old, I am confident Chris has improved our chances significantly. I highly recommend working with Chris on however you plan to approach visiting and playing at St Andrews. You won’t be disappointed.

Thank you so much for your review Michael. Getting an Old Course tee time can be a difficult process, so I was happy to clarify the options for you. Although not a guarantee of future results, I hope my analysis of 2018 and 2019 ballot results will help you target an interval that optimises your chances of a ballot time. Enjoy your stay in St Andrews next year! Best Chris
