The idea of Classic British Golf Tours as an independent golf tour company was conceived by Sean Arble, an individual with considerable knowledge and experience of golf in Great Britain and Ireland. The aim of Classic British Golf Tours is to share the knowledge and passion in helping golfers create the best possible golf holiday. We listen to the customer to uncover the desires, expectations and other pertinent information which help make a great golf trip. With over 20 years experience travelling extensively through Great Britain & Ireland, Classic British Golf Tours is well placed to research the various options and create your personalized itinerary.
The principal of Classic British Golf Tours, Sean Arble. Originally from Detroit, Sean has lived in England for 15 years. Consequently he has rich experience playing golf and organizing personal tours in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. In addition to having played hundreds of courses, Sean has also been a member of four English golf clubs and is currently a member of Burnham & Berrow GC, The Golf Society of Great Britain, The Alister MacKenzie Society of Great Britain and Ireland and The Max Behr Golf Club. When the customer calls Classic British Golf Tours he will be speaking directly with Sean Arble who is available evenings and weekends.
Our service is ideal
- for the golfers who want to participate in trip planning without having to do the hard graft
- for the second or third time visitor who is ready to embrace what the lesser known courses have to offer
- for small groups generally up to 12 players
Methods of Payment
Perhaps the easiest is by bank transfer. When the time comes, bank details can be forwarded.
Soon,we shall have a PayPay account where it will be possible to make payments even if you don’t have an account.
A bank draft in Pounds Sterling; this method obviously has a drawback in requiring more processing time.
Let Classic British Golf Tours organise your next golf holiday!
