Time to seek warmer weather!

Corporate Golf Event in Portugal

This is my fourth visit to Portugal this year and, looking out of the office window here in the Garden of England, Kent, I am glad to be leaving the English climate for now!

However, it won’t be all fun and games over there…we have a client only taking a small group of 28 golfers over to Vila Sol this year for a 2 day, 2 night event..but I always find overseas events harder in terms of hours spent checking and double checking.

Also this year I have been disappointed with Vila Sol and the administration which has made event management harder. I have sent so many emails chasing up information that I need. We also heard Friday last week, that the L’Olive room we have hired for the Gala dinner has been double booked by them and we have been kicked out. I decided that I should stand firm (having had this reservation in for a year) but they did say this has been a longer standing booking. I may just do some Sherlock Holmes work and see if they are not telling me any pory-pies when I am there!!!

Anyway, the client will never know of these problems and I will come with my long check list on arrival on Wednesday.

So…what’s the message behind anybody who has a budget that wants to run a golf day overseas.??…let us organise the event for you as you can see, it’s not as easy as it looks.

Oh yes and I have asked about hire clubs at least 3 times, whether for the first day, we hire them direct at the course where the group are playing (Laguna) or from Vila Sol for both days. All I got three times was OK!!! Yes sure it’s fine but if they could explain, that would be great!
