Singles Wanted for Golf Tours
Travelling alone is not everyone’s cup of tea. Even on a group tour, having a TV as your room companion doesn’t suit everyone. There is also the added cost of the single supplement – sharing a room halves the accommodation cost. At Go Golfing we are seeing a huge increase in single travellers looking to room share at our tournaments and tours.
We understand that sharing a room with someone you don’t know has the potential for disaster. Even sharing with someone you do know can be challenging! So at Go Golfing, we put prospective room share partners in touch with each other before they commit to sharing. They can get to know each other, some even meet up, but importantly after a couple of chats you soon know if this a person you want to share a room with on tour.
Go Golfing staff get together a quick profile on the single travellers – smoking, snoring, are you a night owl? Yes, we ask all the important questions. Singles aren’t auditioning for ‘Married at First Sight’, indeed we only arrange ladies to share with ladies and men to share with men, but we do want to get it right. We have arranged room shares for 19 golfers in the past 2 years and fingers crossed our track record has been great.
Kate from Melbourne and Trish from Adelaide were both looking for a room share on a tour to South Africa. After initial checks, we put them in touch with each other and in their words – ‘from that first chat we got on like a house on fire’. “On tour, it was nice to have company after the group activities were finished. Trish made the morning cuppa while I read out the day’s activities. We helped each other with stuff like washing, but also found ourselves market shopping together and inspired each other to try new things – even an elephant ride. I am a widow and Trish’s husband thinks golf ruins a good walk. We have become great friends and are aiming to do a tour together each year.”
