“Lads, the Barnbougle tour was well run, the two courses Barnbougle and Lost Farm were as good as any courses I have played around the world. The accommodation was of high standard and the vista was amazing. All on tour mixed well, that’s where Mike and Bede excel. Weather was perfect for golf. I have done a number of tours with Teed Up now and this was up to their normal high standard.”

“Barnbougle and Lost Farm are two great courses with dazzling signature holes. Just get off the plane and Teed Up looks after you until you get back on the plane home. You can lose a lot of golf balls on these courses but you don’t begrudge it, the scenery is truly spectacular and unspoilt.” David Wong (2011 Barnbougle Tour Attendee)
