About Virtuoso Golf
Virtuoso Golf is a new company set up by Niall Barrett, Alexander Cockburn and David Bailey expressly to provide high-end golf events. Between them, they can draw on 40 years of experience delivering into the luxury, high end corporate and high net worth individual markets through work with organisations like Quintessentially, The Eden Club, ASmallWorld, Lloyds TSB and Hitachi Consulting. Virtuoso Golf can arrange for individuals or clients to play a round with a golfing hero, whether a current champion, or a star of “yesteryear”. Couple this with the best that their chosen destination has to offer, from opera to the finest culinary experiences, and it becomes the ultimate golfing journey. Virtuoso Golf tackles client entertaining with a difference: as a bespoke experience around a Major, US PGA or European Tour event, providing more of an "inside the ropes" VIP package for a group of people combined with a round of golf and hosted dinner with a top pro the day after the competition. Add to this one of our complementary services, from fly fishing, fine dining and whisky tasting to shooting, game stalking or camel racing - a trip with us becomes a travel story that will stay with you long after the finishing hole.
