Just returned from a weeks golf in South Carolina Myrtle Beach, we was a large group of 24 but the service we received made the whole experience amazing. Robin and Mandy kept us informed every step of the way and even when I contacted them while away about concerns of one of the courses this was dealt with within hours. We are already planning to go back in 2024 and will definitely be using Eagle Golf Tours.

In our opinion, nothing beats a winter golf break to the Caribbean in January. It is the peak of the summer there, so you can expect good weather. The choice of courses and resorts is fantastic and there’s often some cricket to watch too.
