Introduction & Testimonials

Many of us have been on golfing holidays, however few will have experienced a golf holiday combined with a deluxe luxury cruise – a “Golf Cruise”.  Hosted by enthusiastic golfers Adrienne Witteman and David Cooper (directors of Trendsetter Travel), a range of Golf Cruises are now available for our clients.

Our Golf Cruises are always on deluxe to luxurious small to medium ships (Currently our Golf Cruises are limited to Seabourn, Silversea, Crystal Cruises, Uniworld, Tauck & American Cruise Lines).  Trendsetter Travel is currently unique in Australia in offering golf cruises on deluxe to luxurious small to medium ships – on both river and ocean. We choose itineraries where most days are long shore days at ports with good quality, and often (sometimes world famous) golf courses located nearby.  You can be confident that all golf courses are of the highest standard, with most judged to be among the leading golf courses in their region.  Importantly, we’ve taken away the hassle of having to arrange things yourself.

Our Golf Cruises have been structured at a price usually below what you could organise independently and represent great value. For essentially the same product as offered by our international luxury golf cruise competitors, our golf programmes are priced at less than 50% of the cost these competitors charge. Our Golf Cruises are ideal for enthusiasts who take every opportunity to hit the green, as well as those who like to tee off only occasionally. You can choose as little or as much golf as fits your personal preference on every Golf Cruise – all with an equitable price adjustment.  Furthermore, if your partner is not a golfer, each port on our Golf Cruises promises an array of exciting shore excursions to ensure an equally enjoyable cruise experience. It is totally acceptable should you choose to play only half our scheduled golf games on each Golf Cruise at your preferred ports and join your partner on shore excursions at the remaining ports.

A typical golf day on our Golf Cruise includes coach transfers to and from the golf course, a fun round, followed by daily prizes, and then a return to the ship to allow free time for sightseeing. On some days, the order will be reversed on the Golf Cruise with sightseeing at your leisure followed by golf, and a return to your ship in time for dinner. Both cart and walking golf are available, the latter beneficial in keeping at bay the inevitable weight gain from the gourmet cuisine!  Cameraderie is guaranteed on each Golf Cruise, as is having an instant bunch of friends to ensure you enjoy your Golf Cruise even more, be that for cocktails in the evening or sharing dinner on a particular night.

Following on from the success of our luxury golf cruises and to meet client requests, Trendsetter Travel has expanded into land based luxury golf tours.  While we regularly have tours to Cape Kidnappers and Kauri Cliffs in New Zealand, we have a tour in February 2021 to South Africa.   Further land based tours are planned to Morocco, Argentina, Canada and USA – including Texas and New Mexico.

  • Trendsetter Golf Tours never disappoint. David and Adrienne are perfect hosts who attend to every detail. We have been all over the world on their golf tours, and have relished their knowledge, research and organisation. The golf cruise is particularly seamless and of a high quality - we are already signed-up for another around the Mediterranean.

  • Sara and I have travelled with David and Adrienne of Trendsetter Travel on four separate international golfing holidays (Scotland, Ireland, Florida and the Mediterranean golf cruise in 2016). All of these trips have been exceptional well organised with highly rated golf courses, quality accommodation and easy travel arrangements. A key feature is the attention to detail which makes for hassle free travel both on and off the golf course. We thoroughly recommend Trendsetter Travel and look forward to our next golf trip with them.

  • Congratulations to Trendersetter Travel - specifically Adrienne and David - for a wonderful cruise experience. Combining golf and a cruise is the best way to enjoy Europe if you are a golfing fan. Easy access each day to a coach, load up your clubs and off to somewhere new to explore the variety of golf courses in France, Spain and Portugal. The group was a mixture of personalities, all of whom melded perfectly, and provided an environment of fun and endless good humour and laughter. The competitions (2BBB, individual scores etc) provided good natured hilarity and ribbing to finish off the day. We have done a number of cruises but the added activity of golf almost every day (or not if you wanted a day off) was addictive and now we cannot think of travelling anywhere if golf is not a part of the trip. The standard of organisation for the trip has been set high!
