Golf Encounters for 2020

Golf Encounters

Golf Encounters proudly swing into 2020 with a new name and the addition of more dramatic golf destinations.

As we have left 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 the next 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 and travel 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 four-star accommodation – so you can enjoy a hassle-free golfing holiday.

If you’re after a more independent experience, they also offer bespoke golf holidays. Whether you’re travelling as a club, a group of friends, or for a weekend golf getaway with your partner, Golf Encounters will work with you to organise the experience you want.

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.

The Rugby World Cup threw Japan into the international sporting spotlight with fans complimenting the host country for their hospitality. But this mountainous country also boasts great championship golf courses, celebrated for their challenging terrain and stunning panoramic views.
