Hunter and I had a wonderful time and appreciate all that you did. The book you gave everyone was wonderful.

Hope to see you again soon. e

Overall we had a very satisfying stay in Scotland and look forward to going back and playing Turnberry and some of the other great courses we were not able to visit on this first trip. Golfing is Scotland is absolutely wonderful, and the whiskey is pretty good as well!

Thank you again Bill for all your assistance in helping us plan a wonderful golf vacation.

The week has been great, courses fantastic, and the weather has cooperated.  Turnberry was outstanding.  Gleneagles was ok, but if I were to do this trip again I would probably try something else.  Also thanks for submitting our names for the Old Course ballot.  That worked put perfectly and gave us time to hit Crail in the pm where we had the strongest winds (no surprise there).  I have no suggestions to offer for the overall package and would recommend you to others plunging a similar trip.

Just wanted to thank you for a great week of golf in Scotland. The hotel was great. All the people were very friendly and helpful. The courses you selected were all wonderful. Obviously, the one thing you had no control over was the weather. Even then it was good until the last two days. I highly recommend your tour company to anyone wanting to take a golfing trip to Scotland.

The only regret I have is the lack of time to see parts of Edinburgh, maybe next time. Again, thanks for a fantastic trip. I look forward to seeing the pictures you took.

I wanted to thank you so very much for allowing me to participate in the golf experience in Scotland this past week. To sum it up – I had a fabulous experience and would do it again in a heart beat – even under the same weather conditions we had.

Your professional and personal planning and leadership of this trip are very much appreciated. The extra touches like the experience at Mussellburgh Golf Course, the autographed book, hospitaility at Maureen and Jim’s house and, yes, the “Mushy Peas” were beyond what I had expected. You, Maeve and Steve made me feel very welcome and very much apart of the group. I hope I did not disappoint. Please pass on to the staff at the hotel (Jemma, Lindsey, Andrew and the others) a special thanks for taking such good care of me during my stay and a very special thank you to Steve.

I look forward to receiving the pictures your took to help me memorialize my experience.

Again, thank you for a wonderful golfing experience and I look forward to doing another golf tour in Scotland or Ireland in the future.

Thank you!

Scotland has beauty and history that are unmatched in golf. I couldn’t be happier that I took the trip and I’m still smiling and telling friends two months after. Bill and Duffers Golf Travel made it all the better with the local knowledge to set up a trip to meet our desires. From the start of the tip (planning included) things went smooth and easy. Bill also possesses a unique and fun personality to keep things interesting as your trip unfolds. All thumbs up from me and I hope for a return trip.

We could not have a better guide in Scotland. You are an outstanding host for your birthplace. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. I have already mentioned your service to two very avid golfers. They may call you.

Also, golfing at the Glen was awesome; the views were better than Pebble Beach!

Tony Aram, VA

Surely a lot of tour operators can book tee-time and hotel reservations, but the personal attention that Bill has provided for the multiple golf trips I’ve taken with him has made each experience extra enjoyable and smooth in the execution. We always feel we experience more of the area we are visiting, rather than just being tourists. Duffer’s Golf Travel is the way to go!

“One of, if not THE Most Beautiful Place I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting. Vistas that you can barely imagine you’re witnessing with your own eyes…..while golfing”

And “Greatest Week of my Life”…… “86 at the Castle Course was the greatest DAY of my life… even with the horrific putting” lol

You are the ultimate Pro! Thanks for the best planned, timely delivered and most enjoyable trip I’ve ever taken. You set the Gold Standard. Thanks for laughing at so many absurd jokes. Great food choices, beautiful golf courses, fascinating country, wonderful company.

Hats off to Bill Duff for the awesome trip. It was truly a pleasure getting to meet/spend time with all of you. I look forward to seeing all of you in the future–maybe next time I’ll get to hear big Tom play his bagpipes, hear the rest of Jones’ jokes, taste DQ’s new taste sensation–the Haggis Blizzard (invented by The Big Lebowski), find out if Woody owns any dress socks!!!

Thanks for the invitation to join your group for a fabulous Scottish golf trip. The golf was excellent but the company was OUTSTANDING! Bill you made the trip effortless for us, I hope you recovered from the effort before your next group. Thanks and thank your mom for letting you go out and play with us. Hope to see you and Woody at the Wine Harvest soon.

“Can’t thank you enough for the fantastic job you did in planning our trip and making it runs so smoothly. I really thought you did a great job in picking a good set of golf courses to give us a flavor of Scottish golf —- I personally enjoyed them all. The excellent food, pints, the military Tattoo and of course the unexpected round on the Old Course, at St. Andrews were icing on the cake. Can’t say I’ve ever been on a trip where everything seemed to come off as perfectly as this one, and that everyone seemed to get along so well. Thanks again.”

“Our trip to Ireland with Duffers Golf Travel will never be equalled. Bill’s knowledge and scheduling made this a trip of a lifetime. Already looking forward next year.”

“What a fantastic way to see Ireland and it’s wonderful golf courses. No worries about getting lost, missing tee times or staying in bad hotels, everything’s arranged. I had a wonderful time with Duffers Golf Travel and would recommend them to anybody! I will certainly be booking my next trip with them. Cheers.”

“We had a great time – Duffers Golf Travel met our every need. Everything was taken care of for us, we didn’t worry about a thing. The accommodations were wonderful and the golf spectacular. A great value dollar for dollar. I would recommend Duffers Golf Travel to anyone wanting to play golf where it all began.”

“I never realized that Ireland would be so fantastic. The golf courses just got better and better, day after day. The best I’ve ever seen. I never realized how beautiful the country was and how friendly the people were. Looking forward to our next trip.”

“I have been on 2 trips with Duffers Golf Travel, one to Scotland and the other to Ireland. The 10-day trip to Scotland was incredibly economical, yet it still allowed us to play some of the best courses in Scotland, including The Old Course.

The 8 day trip to Ireland had 1st class accommodations and great courses but was still a real value for what we got.

Bill’s personal knowledge of the countries and his hands on approach to making his clients comfortable and happy has me planning a 3rd trip with him now.”
