RonEver since I can remember, sport has played an integral part of my life. If I wasn’t to be found kicking, throwing, or hitting a ball myself I could be found watching or attending some rugby match or golfing tournament. Over the years my passion to play rugby and golf just thrived and by my late twenties I was determined to use this passion and develope it into what turned out to be my bespoke golf travel business called ‘Travelling the Fairways’, which has now been around for some 25 years.

As my passion for the business grew I found myself not wanting to run a commercial golf travel company but to run a business on a more personalised level that would provide a more beneficial experience for those travelling with me. Throughout my career I have built a wonderful network of contacts which has proved essential in expanding and developing the experiences we offer. As the years passed I have enjoyed seeing clients travel from all corners of the world to play golf in the British Isles which has not only given me huge satisfaction but some wonderful tales to tell as well.

Championship Golf Courses of the British IslesWe are fortunate enough to have many of the world’s top golf courses quite literally on our doorstep, with the vast majority all within easy reach. Golf courses such as Royal Co Down, the Old Course St Andrew’s, Royal Birkdale, Ballybunion, Royal Dornoch or Lahinch to name just a few are all available to be enjoyed and played with friends, family or maybe even with clients or colleagues. My aim is to help you achieve the best possible golf trip to whichever corner of the British Isles you wish to visit and tee it up in.

My strengths lie in the knowledge of these magnificent golf courses, the services that surround them, and the hospitality of these very individual golfing destinations. 

Along with the staff at Travelling the Fairways, we look forward to welcoming you, and here's to the next 25 years...!
