About

Designing Memorable Golf Trips for Women

Our Beginnings

While Barbara’s company initially recognized a niche market in the women’s golf travel market, based upon statistical studies that 83% of everything sold in the non-business to business setting is done or influenced by women and feedback from our women’s focus-golf group, a decision was made to add a new spin to creating golf trips to include couple planning without stereotypical gender type-trips. Thus, “ABCD Trip Designs” was created.

ABCD trip designs allow the traveler to choose their own trip design when traveling with their spouse/partner/ friend or as a single. On a couple of trips, they will fly, dine, sleep and enjoy evening socialization together, but do not have to necessarily play golf with each other.

Do you know how many men on “men’s golf trips” really can’t keep up the pace of 36 holes a day but have no other outlet to be “with the guys”. Our new trip planning approach allows these outlets (and even good excuses) for all type of golfers and non-golfers to enjoy time together with their spouse/partner/friends without the peer pressure of having to “keep up with the 36 hole golfer”.
