Golf Encounters proudly swing into 2020 with a new name

28 January 2020

As we all leave a decade behind us, Peter and Marian Cox are ready for a change. They say a fond farewell to their former company name, Charlie’s Golf Tours – who have been providing golf tours for Kiwis since 1999 – and enter this decade under a new name: Golf Encounters.

Their name has changed, but the same trusted team are around, and the same great tours are on offer. In fact, Golf Encounters is unrivalled in New Zealand for their comprehensive range of golf tours. Providing hosted packages to destinations around Asia, Australia, Europe, the Americas and Africa, they look after all the details for you - from places to visit, local food to savour and accommodation options to suit - so you can enjoy a hassle-free
golfing holiday.

If you’re after a more independent experience, they also offer both New Zealand inbound and outbound bespoke golf holidays. Whether you’re travelling as a club, a group of friends, or for a weekend golf getaway with your partner, Golf  ncounters will work with you to organise the experience you want at the budget you can afford.

A new name demands new destinations
Golf Encounters continue to add exciting destinations to their golf and travel packages. So, with a new decade, they are launching their new Asian destination in May 2020: Japan. And with six golf courses in New Zealand named in the top 100 golf courses in the world (outside USA) at the beginning of the year, they are well placed to provide inbound golfers with an experience only New Zealand can provide!

Book your 2020 golf getaway with confidence
A full-service travel agency, tour operator, and bonded with IATA, Golf Encounters can build a complete travel package. Packages can include flights, pre and post-tour itineraries, hotels, car hire, cruises and more
to suit a wide range of travel styles and budgets. Golf Encounters is a member of the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) - a global organisation supporting the golf industry around the world.
