“We just returned from an Irish Highlights tour and it was superb! Our travel director and driver were the BEST!... Truly a trip of a lifetime. Brendan took care of the planning so we could sit back and enjoy!

The guys played golf five times in 10 days and were ecstatic, especially after playing at St. Andrews, the pinnacle of the trip for them… It is an experience I will never forget.
