The holiday golf specialists are running a Scottish Winter Pro-Am next February at the renowned Vila Sol resort in Portugal and there are still spaces available for you and your friends to join in the fun.

Holidays 4 Golfers are well established as expert Pro-Am organisers in the north of England, having worked on many occasions with the local PGA regions in Lancashire and Yorkshire doing similar events.

After more and more teams from Scotland started to travel from Scotland to Manchester just to fly to their events, they decided to set up a Pro-Am dedicated to Scottish golfers.



Holidays 4 Golfers directors Julie Franklin and Mark Earnshaw first set up the company in 2010 and it has continued to go from strength to strength since. They partly put that success down to their bond with the Travel Trust Association, which offers 100% financial guarantees to the company’s customers and suppliers.

The company ran its first Pro-Am in January and it’s went from strength to strength since, with 32 teams competing last time out. “This year we ran three Pro-Ams – Yorkshire; Lancashire; Shropshire and Herefordshire – and nearly all of the teams re-booked for next year,” explained Franklin. “This gave us a problem creating space for all of the other enquiries we have. That’s why we’ve decided to introduce the Scottish Winter Pro-Am and the North West Pro-Am.”
