What We’re Thankful For in 2019
Every year at Worldwide Golf Adventures, we like to take some time in the month of November to practice some gratitude. Since it’s National Gratitude Month and with Thanksgiving looming, this is not a difficult thing to do.
Here are some things we’re thankful for in 2019.
New Employees to Share the Load
This summer, we added two new employees to our roster. Mark Bryne, sales director, and Derek Smart, sales assistant, joined our staff full-time in August. Since they’ve joined, we’ve been able to be more organized, more efficient, and provide better services to our clients. Beyond the excellent work they do and the great customer service they provide, we’re also thankful to have new people to talk to and new relationships to build.
Nearly Six Years of Steady Growth
When we started Worldwide Golf Adventures in March of 2014, we wanted to provide a professional, customer service-oriented experience for people who were interested in the same things we were: playing golf and seeing the world. Since then, we’ve been able to create more and more customized, personal itineraries for golf fans to play their bucket list courses around the world. In fact, we doubled our growth from 2018 to 2019, and many of our clients are repeat customers. To us, this means we’re doing something right.
Doing What We Love for a Living
Not everyone loves what they do for a living, but we do. Not only do we get to make other people intensely happy by planning the trip of a lifetime for them, but we get to do it ourselves, too! Part of our job descriptions includes getting to know the places where we’re sending our clients, and that means packing up and heading out a few times a year, clubs in tow. This past year, we were able to check out new and familiar courses in Ireland, Scotland, France, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and even Morocco. We got to play Punta Espada, the Machrie, Machrihanish Dunes, Le Golf National, Cabo del Sol, and the Fairmont Royal Palm Marrakech for the first time. Sure, we had to do some work while there, including networking, checking out lodgings, and forging new partnerships with people throughout the industry. But we also got to see more of the world. It’s truly a gift to be able to do this as part of our jobs.
Of course, we’re thankful for our partners, our clients, and our families, too. We can’t wait to see what 2020 has in store!
