2012 Ireland and Scotland Guides Update

The Ireland Golf Adventure Guide and Scotland Golf Adventure Guide have been updated for 2012.

The details for every golf course and accommodation — and everything else in the guides! — are carefully scrutinized and updated for each edition. Here’s an example from the Scotland Golf Adventure Guide.

All new purchases (PDF download and printed) will receive the updated versions effective immediately. Customers who have purchased a previous PDF version of the guide can download a free update to this latest version. This is just one of the many advantages of purchasing one of my guides.

Updated information includes, but is not limited to:

  • New accommodations and courses (Lough Erne in Ireland and Trump International Golf Links in Scotland)
  • Green fees and accommodation rates/tariffs for 2012
  • Golf course contact info (email, websites, etc.)
  • Accommodation contact info (email, websites, etc.)
  • Flight schedules and airlines

New buggy icon indicates if motorized carts (buggies) are available.

Buggies! New for 2012 — courses that offer motorized carts (they are usually referred to as “buggies” in Ireland and Scotland) have a green buggy icon as part of the course entry. If a medical certificate is required to use a buggy this is indicated by the word “MED” next to the icon.

Reduced rates for 2012. You’ll be happy to know that many golf courses — especially those in Ireland — have further reduced their green fees for 2012. Same with hotel rates. Unfortunately, this does not seem to be the case in Scotland where most courses continue their 5-10% year green fees increase despite the gloomy economic environment.

If you buy a travel guide book that was printed sometime last year, or you already own one, I can guarantee that a good portion of the information in it is out of date and/or incorrect. By publishing my guides electronically, I can easily deliver you the latest — and most correct — information. And, even after you’ve made a purchase, because you get free updates you’ll always have access to accurate information when you plan your next trip.
