Direct Golf Holidays accept no responsibility for any loss, damage or injury whilst traveling.

If in the event, a said hotel or golf course booked is not available for whatever reason, a hotel or course of the same standard and star rating will be substituted.

Golf

At Direct Golf Holidays, we do our best to confirm your requested tee times; however, golf courses do reserve the right to alter preferred tee times. If for any reason your requested tee times are not available we will offer the nearest possible alternative. Tee times are based on playing four balls, therefore, depending on the season; you may be paired up with other golfers on the day.

The Spanish Golf Federation levy an insurance charge of between 1.50 euros and 3 euros to all golfers playing in Spain, the majority of courses include this in the green fee; for the few courses that do not, you will be charged locally.

In the event of heavy rainfall, it will be the decision of the course to open or close, if the course chooses to open they will expect you to play, therefore if you choose not to; the green fee will not be refunded. If the course chooses to close your tee time will be changed or you will receive a full or part refund.

Handicap certificates are rarely asked to be seen in Spain, but requested more in Portugal; however, you must be aware that as a general rule you should carry your certificate, for the more prestigious courses you will be asked to show it.

Dress code is the same as in most countries; soft spikes are required at majority of the courses.
