New golf travel company, Gastro Golf, is offering golfers with a passion for stunning courses and exceptional food and wine the opportunity to book their dream golf break.
The Cheshire-based specialist tour operator, a member of IAGTO, provides golf holidays with a “gastronomic twist”, combining the opportunity to play on some of the world’s finest courses with traditional culinary and cultural experiences not to be missed.
Gastro Golf’s tailor-made holidays are perfect for those who want to expand their standard golf holiday with friends and family by sampling the best local food and wines found in destinations throughout Portugal and Spain as well as other golf and gastronomically rich regions in Europe.
Founded by John Sullivan, who has spent most of his working career in the hospitality industry, says the company’s primary aim is to provide its golfers with a “truly memorable” experience.
“Gastro Golf combines all the right ingredients for a truly memorable holiday including personal service both here in the UK and in the destination. Great locations, first class accommodation and the chance to relax and enjoy good golf, food, wine and traditional culture is what we are all about. We work directly with an increasing number of carefully selected regional specialists in golf tourism in each destination. Jointly this enables us to select the right accommodation, golf courses, restaurants and food and wine producers which when packaged together, create a truly unique golf experience.”

In 2016, Gastro Golf will be including a number of featured Gastro Golf Tours some of which will include professional coaching or tournaments.
“Our clients are golfers of all ages and abilities, who want to explore the culturally rich and diverse countries they love to play in,” added Sullivan. “The pleasure derived from relaxing and enjoying the best in locally produced food and wine in a wonderful location after a great day on the course is what we know and creates a real point of difference in a Gastro Golf Holiday. Our holidays are ideally suited for individuals, groups and corporate clients.”
