The Good News

Well, 2020 turned out to be a real bust.  Every booking we had for the summer went down the tube due to Covid-19.  Airlines cancelled all flights to the UK.  The golf courses closed.  Hotels closed.  Rental car agencies mostly closed.  Tour busses were parked.

But the good news:  Every single booking we had for 2020 was moved over to 2021 with little change in prices and no loss of advance deposits.  Even the airlines moved the reservations without penalties.  And the US dollar is stronger against the Pound and Euro than previously.

So we are good to go for 2021.  Give us a call at 800-338-6259 and we’ll add you to the list of great golf trips we have planned.  But don’t delay, courses are filling fast.  Email us at golf@foregolftours.com with your request.

Add Dundonald Links to your choices for Western Scotland

You might want to add a relatively new course, Dundonald Links, to your program for the West coast of Scotland.  The course got a lot of attention in 2017 with the Scottish Open and Ladies Scottish Open events.  Just down the road from Royal Troon, it was known as Fort Donald with fortifications going back between 500 and 200 B.C. Originally built in the early 1900’s as a golf course, it was converted for military use during WWII and then back to a golf course in the early 2000’s.  A beautiful site.
