Casa Velha Golf  Madeira


Recent Trip to Madeira Island

Rob Stinson at Palheiro GolfI recently visited the Island of Madeira and stayed at the 5* Casa Velha do Palheiro Hotel – which has Palheiro G.C. on-site.  The resort has fantastic gardens, a beautiful spa, an award winning gourmet restaurant and a halfway house offering soup, sandwiches and home-made cakes etc. The capital town of Funchal is only 10 minutes away and the resort offers shuttles to the old town – where there is a great choice of restaurants and bars.  If for your golf holiday you are looking for a lovely year round climate, beautiful surroundings and good food & wine, Madeira is the place for you:

Palheiro golf course is challenging and fun with some tremendous views over the ocean.  I walked the course but would probably recommend taking a buggy.


Golf Networking 

This is only applicable if you are a director, owner or partner in a business.

I recently joined the FORE Business Networking group – which is networking with a difference.  You have an initial meet & greet and then play golf with directors of companies.  They have 62 groups throughout the UK and my local group is Liverpool (playing at Childwall G.C.).  I am able to introduce new members to any of the groups throughout the UK where you will have a free pass for your first event.

If after the event you think it will be good for you there are various memberships you can choose, with the standard package being £45 a month plus VAT.  For this fee you will be able to attend the monthly networking event at your chosen course with a round of golf, coffee & bacon roll – PLUS a complimentary 4 ball to use at this course on a Monday to Friday for the following month.  If you chose choose a higher membership you can play at any of the 62 courses (rising to over a 100 in the next 12 months) throughout Britain.

You can see further information here and if this is of interest just let me know and I can arrange a free pass for you.


Travel Insurance

Golf Tours International can now offer travel insurance for your golf holiday which includes golf equipment and cancellation of non-refundable tee times.  This is an important factor as many insurance companies don’t include the golf aspect in their policies.

You can obtain an instant quote through our ‘Travel Insurance Quote’ button on our website – or call 0800 294 2972 and mention Golf Tours International.
