Adam S
Great break all ran smoothly and the hotel staff very helpful. Fantastic service and Holiday. I would definitely use 360 golf again.
Mark H
Being asked by a group of your best mates to organise a trip carries a great burden to get it right. Never having done this before I approached another company who were dreadful! Found 360 on Facebook and what a find! From initial discussions with Jeff to organising details with Marie so easy, helpful and pleasant. Numerous queries were dealt with swiftly and efficiently by Marie and already looking at next year for a recommendation from Jeff. The hotel was great, although the drinks were very expensive, and the staff was very good especially the young pro who sorted us out after finding us walking it the wrong direction! All around GREAT and THANK YOU.
Trusted Customer
Great service from 360 Golf - would highly recommend. Very adaptable and reactive to changes in booking. Extremely knowledgeable and thorough, providing many alternative options prior to accepting confirmation. Despite the uncertainty due to COVID, the team were reassuring and happy to provide suggestions should the trip not go ahead. Malaga in February went down a treat, just a shame we couldn't do the golf justice!
