                              A 14 night fly drive package experiencing the best golf
                              that the South Carolina Low Country has to offer.

Four outstanding destinations starting at Hilton Head in the south where our stops will
include Harbour Town Golf Links, home of the Heritage Classic, the PGA Tour event held
each year the week after the Masters.
The second stop is Historic Charleston which will include a round on the famous Ocean
Course at Kiawah Island, venue for the 1991 Ryder Cup ‘War on the Shore’, the World Cup
of Golf and most recently the Senior PGA Championship in 2007.
You will also play at Rivertowne which hosted the Ginn Classic on the LPGA Tour hosted
by Annika in 2007.
Our third stop will be in beautiful Pawleys Island where you will play, among others,
Caledonia Golf and Fish Club dubbed the ‘Augusta of the Carolinas’ while for our final stop
we will be in Myrtle Beach the golf capital of the world where a feast of golf awaits.

Spring and Autumn trails
There are two golf trails in 2008. The first starting on 3rd May and the second on the 15th November.
May is a beautiful month in Carolina with clear blue skies, temperatures in the mid 80sF and low
humidity. Late November is also a fantastic time to visit the Carolinas with sunny skies, warm
temperatures, often in the low 70sF and the Autumn colours which are spectacular on the golf courses.
Both tours include 14 nights accommodation, 14 days fully inclusive car hire, 9 rounds of golf including
cart fees, gift pack, information pack, on-site host services. See pages 2 and 3 for full itineraries.

Flights
We can make flight reservations on your behalf through our agent who is fully bonded. This would be on a
£50 per person deposit with the balance due 10 weeks from departure.
However, the flight scene has changed a lot over the last year or so and it is often cheaper to book flights
yourself online. You can try various sites but we find www.eBookers.com or www.airline-network.co.uk as
good as any most of the time.
For Continental flights it is best to book direct on www.continental.com where you can often find very good
rates. We are more than happy to provide any advice you may need in getting flights booked so please do not
hesitate to contact us.

Flight routes
You can fly into Savannah (SAV) which is a 45 minute drive from Hilton Head or there is a limited service
into Hilton Head Island itself (HHH). You can get 1 stop routes out of Gatwick (LGW), Heathrow (LHR),
Manchester (MAN), Bristol (BRS), Birmingham (BHX), Edinburgh (EDI) and Glasgow (GLA).
If you are considering part of the golf trail then you can also fly into Charleston (CHS) or Myrtle Beach (MYR)
which would be the nearest to Pawleys Island.
