Experts in Luxury Golf Holidays
Over 15 Years in the travel industry
Having studied Tourism Management at University, my first role in travel was as a travel agent with TUI. I have always had a love for golf and so when I was given an opportunity in 2007 to organise golf holidays, I jumped at the chance. With my best handicap at 7, turning professional was not an option and so this was a great alternative for a career in the golf industry! I joined the sales team at Elegant Golf Resorts in 2010 and became Sales Manager in 2017.
During my time with Elegant Golf Resorts, I have been fortunate to stay and play at some of the best golf resorts worldwide. My favourite destination is South Africa, for the combination of unique experiences you can have whilst in this beautiful country; watching the Big 5 on safari, wine-tasting in some of the world’s best vineyards, visiting Cape Town with its waterfront area, not to mention the 5-star golf resorts and courses. However, when it comes to the very best courses, my favourite destination is the Dominican Republic. The spectacular coastline courses that run alongside the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea are sheer golfing heaven!
My colleagues describe me as knowledgeable, supportive and driven. I enjoy passing on my personal travel recommendations to my clients and look forward to hearing from them on their return. I find it extremely rewarding to organise a holiday knowing they will have an incredible time.

Sales Executive & Former Ladies European Tour Professional
From a young age, golf has been my love and passion. After a successful amateur career representing Wales for 10 years, I turned professional in 2009 and played on the Ladies European Tour for three years until injury ended my career. After being a touring professional, creating bespoke golf holidays around the world and getting the opportunity to experience the courses first-hand is the best job in golf!
I joined Elegant Golf Resorts in 2018 and have been fortunate enough to arrange many fantastic holidays around the world. I get a real buzz out of sending people to resorts that I have been to, or courses that I have played, knowing the client is going to have an amazing time and enjoy it just as much as I did. I also enjoy arranging holidays for special events such anniversaries and birthdays and love it when a client asks me to organise an extravagant excursion.
My favourite course is Bandon Dunes, Oregon, USA. It’s by far one of the best Links courses I have ever played, and it holds fond memories as it’s where I won four out of four points in the 2006 Curtis Cup. I also love the Royal Hotel Evian Resort in Europe; the hotel is pure luxury and the views of Lake Geneva from the golf course are breath-taking.

Senior Sales Executive & PGA Golf Professional
Prior to joining Elegant Golf Resorts in 2017, I spent more than ten years working at prominent golf clubs in Scotland including Gleneagles, Spey valley, Kemnay Golf Club and the Carrick on Loch Lomond. During that time, I enrolled on the PGA programme and turned professional playing off a handicap of 1. However, my real interest has always been the commercial side of golf and so my role selling luxury holidays at Elegant Golf Resorts is the perfect fit. The knowledge and experience I have gained from such prestigious golf clubs are fundamental to understanding my client’s needs and creating them the perfect golf holiday. It’s great to receive positive feedback from clients who have had a wonderful time on a holiday you have tailor-made for them.
I’ve always enjoyed a Dave Thomas-designed golf course having worked on one in Aviemore, and so I was extremely impressed with The Ritz-Carlton Abama in Tenerife. It was the best course I played during my tour of the Canary Islands; I loved its challenging greens, big bunkers and amazing sea views on each course. Closer to home my favourite courses are Carnoustie, Royal Dornoch and Spey Valley.
