 “I have known Geoff for some 15 years and during this time have been on numerous tours both in Australia and overseas. While not claiming to have reduced my handicap as a result of his tours they have always been conducted professionally with as much emphasis on the social aspect as the golf side of things. The courses that he chooses are great challenges and it pays to take his advice, 'go where the mowers go'. At dinner over a couple of glasses of red ask about search and rescue. Geoff has a great sense of humour and a library of jokes. A great time is always had by all on his tours.” Tony Morgan (AG)
