Once within 90 days of arrival, the likelihood of receiving any percentage refund dramatically reduces due to agreements with Hotels and Golf Courses. Final Payment is 100% non-refundable.

If your handicap is greater than 24 (men) or 36 (ladies) please notify us in order we can discuss which clubs may have relevant restrictions. Also, please note that Premeir Irish Golf Tours can accept no responsibility for the playing conditions of any golf courses, including changes caused by course maintenance or weather conditions.

Caddies: As a free service to clients, Premier Irish Golf Tours will request caddies for those who wish them, however they cannot be guaranteed. The golf clubs will make every effort to secure caddies but they are neither employed by the golf clubs nor by Premier Irish Golf Tours. Please consult with your executive at Premier Irish Golf Tours regarding the likelihood of accessing a caddie on your selected courses. In general, the demand for caddies at most courses exceeds the availability. If a caddie is secured for you, the caddie master or another club official will inform you of the caddie charge and tipping policy.
