Our Escorted Golf Holiday & Coaching Holiday Team

Terry Rawding owner of Golf to a Tee is on site for many of our Escorted Golf events. On long-haul hosted events Terry is often supported by fellow Director Stephanie Rawding.
"I take great pleasure in seeing our clients relax and enjoy our escorted events - where the dining and socialising are almost as important to the event, as the golf and coaching. We take care of all of the organising and let you make the most of your holiday."
I am a club golfer who enjoys travel, good food and wine and the PGA Professionals we work with have been carefully selected - not only for their coaching skills, but to complement the event when it comes to spending time together after golf.
Stephanie helps Terry host our UK and long haul events. We are delighted to be "England's Best Outbound Golf Tour Operator 2020" in the World Golf Awards.
