No refunds are available under any circumstances for cancellations made due to course closures.

2. Golf played on temporary greens and tees is non refundable and is considered to be an accepted part of playing golf in Scotland. Please note that trolley and buggy bans occur frequently when a course is wet and are determined by those in charge of the golf course.

3. If You are unable to play golf on Your Itinerary due to course closure We will, without obligation, try to obtain a partial refund or green fee vouchers for the golf element of the Itinerary to the extent that the golf course is willing to provide same.

Whilst a certificate of playing ability is not essential on all golf courses, the appropriate golfing etiquette and knowledge of golfing rules is expected of You and each golf course reserves the right to refuse access if in their judgement individuals do not display the required etiquette and/or knowledge. We are not responsible for any decisions taken by the relevant golf course in these circumstances.

7. Appropriate dress and footwear should be worn at all times on the golf courses and in the relevant club houses. Certain hotels require dress code for dinner.

When You arrange Your Itinerary with Us You are accepting full responsibility for any damage or loss caused by You or any member of Your group both to Us and/or any third parties including hotels and/or golf courses/clubs. If You fail to meet that responsibility You will be responsible for meeting any claims subsequently made against Us (together with Our own and the other party’s full legal costs) as a result of Your actions or failures.

9. If in Our reasonable opinion or in the reasonable opinion of any other person in authority You or a member of Your group is behaving in such a way as to cause or be likely to cause danger, upset or distress to any third party or damage to property We or the person in authority in question are entitled without prior notice to terminate Your Itinerary. In this situation the person(s) concerned will be required to leave the hotel or golf course. In those  circumstances neither We nor the hotel and/or the golf course will have any further responsibility towards such person(s) including any return travel arrangements. No refunds will be made and We will not pay any expenses or costs incurred as a result of the termination.

10. We are not responsible for the provision of the accommodation including any facilities and services provided by the hotel.
