Golf Experience was established in 1989 making it one of the longest established Golf Specialist travel agents in Spain.
Our legal status is that of a Spanish Tour Operator (CIAN Nº 293034-2) and we are licensed and bonded in full compliance with local and EU law.
Our business philosophy is simple – taking the upmost care of our clients from the very first contact to the end of the trip and often afterwards.
Attention to detail and going the extra mile for our clients is what we do every day.
We are in it for the long-term so returning clients year on year is what makes this business so satisfying.
The current Management team is headed by Séamus Whooley (Irish) who has spent his entire career in Tourism and specifically Golf Tourism marketing. He was Marketing Manager with the Irish Tourist Board in North America and before that in France.
Gerry Lovett (Sales Manager) hails from Tipperary, better known for race-horses and hurling than golf but he is making steady progress despite the grip – see picture!
Our IT and online services are managed by Justin Parks who hails from the real home of golf – “Northern Ireland” but has never been on a golf course in all his life!
Lorena Trapero (Spanish) has recently joined Golf Experience from a long career in the Golf Hospitality sector on the Costa del Sol. Lorena previously managed the Golf desk at the Golf Hotel Guadalmina and the Golf Reservations desk at the Atalaya Park hotel. Lorena grew up in the Malaga area.
While our main source markets remain the U.K. and Ireland, Golf Experience enjoys a privileged position in long-haul markets such as North American and Asia which are considerable source markets for us. Understanding the demands of these complex markets and clients is what has helped us establish and grow these sectors in recent years.
