About No Traps Golf Tours
No Traps Golf offers the overseas visitor personalized golfing vacations all around Scotland – the wonderful west coast links courses such as Turnberry, Troon and Prestwick, the East Coast challenges of Carnoustie and The Old Course at St Andrews or the splendour of the Highlands with Nairn, Castle Stuart or Royal Dornoch. But with a little bit of advice and guidance the visitor can get more; Machrihanish or Brora, Golspie, Cruden Bay – all absolute diamonds sparkling along some particular part of Scottish coastline. It is the knowledge that can make the difference between a good golfing tour and a great one. David Horne of No Traps Golf gives his background.
“My knowledge of golf came from years of caddying, primarily on the Old Course and Kingsbarns. I also spent some winters caddying at country clubs in Florida, with a view to learning the service levels that Americans are used to. I got into the tour business when a friend asked me to help out by doing some driving for him several years ago now. We still often work together although I am now an independent company.
Year in and year out I have had many clients who have wanted to come back and use me again. As I have worked for many different tour operators and various transport companies this has not always been possible. No traps was formed for these people. I now have the facility to welcome back old friends and take them on tour again.
Needless to say these people or their recommendations take priority but that does not mean that there is not a space available in my calendar. If I personally cannot take you I can place you with a good company that will. Remember I've worked for many and know the good from the bad. If you wish to drive yourself around let us help you book the tour. We know the car hire companies and will always try to get you the best deal for you. Even if you just want some advice give us a call or an email and we will try to help.
I Look forward to talking to you soon.”
David, You may recall our group of 8 that toured with you in June of 2006. We had a dream trip that totally exceeded our expectations; mostly because of you!
Your knowledge of the golf courses, connections with locals, ability to solve problems, flexibility, and your fun attitude made it an experience our group fondly relives every time we get together.
Simply stated: “You’re the best!”
