"We were all delighted with the trip. Used restaurant Auberge a couple of times and liked it. We also met John Smith in the bar of the hotel and we all had lots of his ale. :) Loved the golf. Asked one of the lads if he would drop a course in order to include S&A and he said no - we should play four days the next time. All in all a wonderful trip."

"Just to say the whole thing from start to finish was just exceptional so thanks again for all your help. From sunstroke potential at Ormskirk to lashing rain and 60mph gusts of wind at Hesketh it was the true links experience :-) The Hotel was spot on, the rooms were comfortable, breakfast excellent and staff very friendly. We were made to feel incredibly welcome everywhere we went."
