Dream Golfing Vacation
Sep 2018 • Friends
STOP.. BEWARE... not sure you can even contact these guys any longer..

Booked with David, talked with him many times to get the perfect trip planned for a foursome for 9 days... four rounds in Northern Ireland and four in Scotland... all the great courses and great accommodations... we all paid our 50% deposit and out final payment... one month before our scheduled departure... David stopped responding to emails... after a frantic internet search we found many comments just like we were experiencing... David and his wife had disappeared... taking all our money, cancelled all our tee times and hotel reservations... left out in the cold !

I can say that we were mostly all able to file claims through Visa and got reimbursed most of our money...

We were kinda left to book the entire trip on our own... it went very well.. we decided to just stay in Scotland for the entire trip in order to add a ninth round of golf... many emails and calls directly to the courses and we booked some great golf ... used AIR BNB for all our accommodations in great little houses and cottages in the community we were in... all in all we actually saved about 35% off the trip cost with David and we believe we had a much better trip.. we only moved 3 times playing 3 rounds in each different community..

I want a note added to reviews on Premier Irish Golf Tours, that we Irish Golf Tours Ltd established in 1993,have and never had any connection whatsoever with PIGT. What David McMahon of PIGT has done is criminal fraud, hopefully will be apprehended and face justice, although he has absconded.

Folks are lucky that they got a message from them that their tour was cancelled. We got no notice!! and were supposed to board a plane in one week for the Home of Golf tour in Scotland by Premier Irish Golf tours.

Well, David McMahon of Premier Irish golf tours didn't answer our messages to confirm our arrival date/time for airport pick up....we investigated and found that there were no reservations made for us for either the hotel or any of the 5 golf venues we contracted for. So, we had to cancel the flight and received only a partial refund.

The payment for golf (deposit over one year ago) and the final payment sent in June 2018 by credit cards must be disputed and there is no guarantee any of it will be returned.

He has closed shop and absconded with $20,000 of our money.
He would have let us land in Edinburgh and be without transportation, hotel or golf reservations. He is a liar, a cheat and a despicable human being.

Our trip was ruined and had to be cancelled at the last minute. Lost lots of other money too spent preparing for the trip.

Do not book any tours. The company is closed

We booked a golf tour package in June of 2018 with David. We paid the full fare for a 6 nights 6 rounds of golf for August for two person (5,000 Euro) We did not know it was closed until the day we arrived in Dublin. We were shocked, angry, and frustrated. We tried to email him a few days before the tour but with no reply. We never in our dreamed that this could. We found out that he did not pay 2 out of 3 hotels, rental car, and some green fees. We had to scramble to find a rental car, pay for the rental car, call all the hotels and golf courses and pay them.

Do not book any tour with this company!!

Don't Know What Happened......
Sep 2017 • Friends
We had a group of 20 in June 2017 for a Northern Ireland golf trip. Everything was great. Courses, hotels and our wonderful bus driver Patrick. So we put together another trip (24 golfers) for Scotland in May 2019. We paid our deposits and were looking forward to the trip. Then July 7th we get a note the business was expecting a cash infusion from an investor group July 1st which didn't come through so they were suspending operations. We had another tour operator check our itinerary and found no arrangements (bookings) had been made for our trip (hotels, tee times or airfares). We are now working with our credit card companies on deposit refunds. Disappointing after such a great trip in 2017. We are left wondering what happened.

Paid PIGT about $13k in 2/18 as a deposit for myself and 5 others for a 7/19 9 day / 8 round golf trip to Scotland and Northern Ireland. My coming 40th birthday is now ruined. Hoping to recoup the money from the credit card. Has anyone been successful in doing that?

Not Happy
Jul 2018 • Friends
I arranged for a group of 6 of us to tour Scotland in 2019 from Australia. We paid our deposits early June. The communication up to that point was fantastic. Verners was very responsive. Now his emails bounce as if the account is closed and emails to David the owner go unanswered. Like others we hope we are covered through the credit card company.

Did anyone manage to get a refund yet?

Another Victim
Jul 2018 • Friends
This past May, I booked a trip to Scotland/Ireland through Premier Irish Golf Tours. I decided to use this company based on the reviews on Tripadvisor.

I now see why most of our communication was via telephone. And not email. The only thing I received via email was a receipt for the initial deposit. And no communication after that. Which should have raised a red flag for me. But being a trusting soul, I thought he might have been busy booking other clients, and simply forgot to reply.

This morning , I was going to contact Premier about extending my trip. And found the site to be permanently closed. Hopefully my credit card company will make the refund process go smoothly.

From now on I will stick with the big name tour companies. I just returned from a trip to Southwest Ireland using Perry. Great trip (despite the drought conditions) and well taken care of.

Similar Story Unfortunately
Jul 2018 • Friends
Unfortunately I have a similar story to share. A group of us placed a deposit in January 2018 for a trip in April 2019. I've tried to reach David for the past 2 months with no response...I now understand why. We are all going to be working with our Credit Card companies for a refund and hopefully finding a reputable company to reschedule our trip.
