Thanks again for everything. Another wonderful trip. All was perfect as usual. Although if we do Canterbury & the South Coast Links again we want Viv (now known to us as “Wrong Way Corrigan”) to dress as the Wife of Bath for atmosphere. Your poor Dad endured some rough traffic on the way back into London. You might have trouble keeping him with the team. Let us talk about St. Andrews for next year and we will come back to you. Thanks for the quick follow-up. Bill”

Thanks for the note. We had a fantastic time in Wales. Everything went off without a hitch and the weather was an unexpected bonus. I don’t think I would change much if I came back. We loved the Bear Hotel and Cowbridge. The courses were all terrific – Royal Porthcawl was a classic beauty, P&K was like playing two courses in one day, and Pennard was unbelievably scenic. The Twenty Ten gave us a good look at what the pros see. It was a bit intimidating at first but once we threw away the guide and had a beer we all played better.
And Mike the driver was a pleasure – just good company and a real gem of a man and a great promoter of Wales generally. We enjoyed him walking the courses with us.
A pleasure meeting you and seeing your beautiful country. I hope to be back with my wife one day to walk the trails. When we look at our next trip I will definitely send you a note to see what you can offer elsewhere in the UK”

“Encore mille mercis pour ce séjour au pays de Galles. Nous avons particulièrement aimé Pyle& Kenfig, Royal Porthcawl et surtout Southerndown, magnifique parcours qui ne pénalise pas trop les joueurs sauf en cas de très mauvais coup obligeant à jouer dans les ajoncs.”
Bien à vous.

“Once again Dylan, it was a great trip. Hopefully the sheep will now sleep a little better knowing that we are back in the states and no longer a threat. We look forward to next year, but if you are in the states prior, give us a ring if it is convenient. Cheers!”
Peter Ellis – Pittsburgh PA
“Dylan Many thanks for your email, we enjoyed ourselves immensely and will be back hopefully with more friends next time. I Next time we will let you make all the decisions on courses accommodation. Again many thanks from myself Gordon Edmond & Anthony.”

“Dylan, Just a quick note. Cheers, mate for a wonderful visit! Made it home after a long day of travel. Really, it was terrific and thank you so much for taking such good care of us. I’ve got a new book coming out in November, a second edition of a book I enjoyed co-authoring, on golf etiquette, of all things, that Tom Kite and Ben Crenshaw were kind enough to write the foreword and introduction to. Will send it then. Thanks again. Will be in touch.”

Dylan: Lorraine and I are missing you and Wales already. I cant even begin to tell you how much all of your help meant to us during our stay. It was a truly memorable, marvelous week. Lorraine and I are in the process of putting together a small token of our appreciation to you and Nanette (and the bambino en route)–keep an eye on the mailbox.
Evan Rothman – Editor, Golf Magazine, New York

Hello Dylan, I am so sorry that I haven’t sent you a mail before. The time just flies away and one have always a hard time to catch up. Thank you for your hospitality then we visited Wales. It was a nice but hard week. The Golf courses where very good but the wind was something special.
Lennart Nordblad – Sweden
Your service was excellent and we all enjoyed every minute of the stay. Thanks to you and John. Trygve will get in touch with you for next year visit.
Per Erik – Norway
Just to say thanks – we had a fantastic time. Everything went like clockwork – except the way some of us played after far too many beers.
Wayne Davies – UK
Your service and attention to detail was outstanding. The choices of hotels perfect matched our groups desires, and the golf courses were simply marvelous. Not only is Wales a fantastic value, and about half the cost of it’s more famous neighbors, but the clubs are very welcoming and portray absolutely no stuffiness. Visitors are welcomed with genuine warmth. If you ever need a third party testimonial, consider me at your disposal. “Wales Golf Vacations” does a great job and is highly recommended. Henceforth I will do all in my power to dispel the hidden secret of golf in Wales: truly one of the best golf experiences available on this planet. Thank you!
