Andrew, we had a great time and I wanted to drop you a line to thank you for your help.  We were able to play the Old Course two days.  We loved all the golf, but all agreed that Kingsbarns was high on the list.  Thanks again for your help…. we hope to make the trip again in the future.

I have booked four different Scotland trips with Thistle Golf and cannot say enough positive things about their service and excellent work.   Their knowledge of Golf Courses, Hotels, Sightseeing Opportunities, Motor Coach / Driver Options and Excellent Restaurant Recommendations will make any group's trip more enjoyable.

I have used Thistle Golf on two of my trips to Scotland and I can testify that Andrew Syme runs a first-class operation.  His attention to detail and staying in touch with his clients every step of the way are the reasons I will use Andrew the next time I return to those bonny shores!

We have done 3 tours with Thistle Golf and find their choices of golf and lodging first class along with arrangements of ferries, change of bookings, and all our needs.  Thistle Golf is 5-star!  We are considering doing our 4th golf vacation this spring in Scotland with Thistle Golf.

We asked Thistle Golf to put together a late October golf tour in the North West of England. The tour was a great success, largely due to Thistle's attention to detail in putting together the golf, accommodation and restaurant arrangements - the courses at Southport & Ainsdale, Hillside and Hoylake were of the highest quality and we were based at a very comfortable and efficient hotel in Southport, an ideal location for the courses selected. The group chose to dine at the hotel and at a number of local restaurants recommended by Thistle, all conveniently situated, good value and excellent food. We would have no hesitation in using Thistle's services in the future.

We had an excellent Golf trip "around" Scotland. You showed us very interesting Golf courses which we would not have find ourselves. All Starting times were booked! Followed by reservations of excellent and "nice" Hotels. Transportation excellent. Shall we think of another visit to Scotland, we know who will organise it for us.

Thanks again for everything. The trip was extraordinary and your preparations were far and above our expectations. You not only performed as promised, you exceeded the performance to enhance our vacation most happily.

Steven Price Idaho, USA.

On behalf of the entire group – we had a fantastic holiday. The service you provide is exceptional with special attention to your clients throughout the trip. You guys are the best.

This was our second trip to Scotland and we had a terrific time. Thistle Golf made our planning very easy. It was great to rely on their expertise and local knowledge. They helped take all the hassles out of planning the trip. Definitely would rely on them for future visits.

Jeff Lerner, San Francisco, CA, USA

This was our second trip planned by Thistle Golf (8 years apart) and they did a great job both times.  All the details are taken care of before hand, so all we had to do was enjoy the golf and our travels. Everything went very smoothly and we will definitely use them again.

Alan Gregory Group, Jackson, MO, USA

Wanted you to know that we loved the trip…the courses were great and we had a good time. Would highly recommend you in the future and hopefully use you again ourselves.    Again thanks for everything!!!  (Photo: Gullane No. 1 by Glyn Satterley)

It was indeed a great experience to visit Scotland, and we got the most out of it. From Carnoustie in rain and storm – the caddies had never experienced a weather like that in July – to Panmure, Edzell and Scotscraig in nice weather. And being at the Open was a very good experience. On television you do not realize how narrow the course actually is, and it was fun to sit and watch several holes at the same time and see how much attention the players constantly had on things going on at the neighboring hole to avoid disturbance. And we had a party watching the final Monday afternoon at the hotel at Carnoustie. The rain was pouring down outside, and golfers came in, had beers and cheered. It was so fun! We appreciate very much the courses you had picked for us. Panmure was like Northern Jutland, where I spent all my Summers at grandparents. Same vegetation, smell, birds etc, and it was in very nice condition. We loved Edzell and Scotscraig too! After Edzell we went for a beautiful drive in the mountains (or hills I believe you call it). Loved it. And the Glamis castle was a very good experience as well. Bed and Breakfast was fine with very nice breakfasts.    Looking forward to visiting Scotland again sometime!  

Rob Ferguson Group, Durban, South Africa

We really enjoyed our trip to Scotland and the hospitality of Thistle Golf. The trip was well organised, the golf course selection and confirmed tee times all worked out perfectly. We will be back again.
