A big thankyou to Steve Wylie from Golf & Leisure Getaways who put together a brilliant package that included a house on the beach, flights and vehicle for transport.  Steve’s itinerary and restaurant recommendations were spot on too.  Highly recommended to anyone considering a trip to this gem of a place.!”

Horst Eberius & Group

January 2021 – Mornington Peninsula

The whole weekend went down really well…. the rain on Friday was unfortunate, but the pro shop staff at Moonah were very accommodating!

Everyone had a great time on the brewery tour and both restaurants were fantastic. As I said on the phone, Hotel Sorrento gave us a private room, which meant we weren’t bothering other guests.
The food at the Baths restaurant was brilliant.  

Thanks Steve for all the work you did for us, especially on Friday when the rain hit.

We’ll be in touch.

Mark Dixon & group

Thanks again Steve & I’ll be in touch when we are looking at organising another golf trip.

Bill Casey & group
Bathurst NSW

March 2020 – King Island

Hi Steve

Our group of 18 really enjoyed the experience of travelling to and playing golf on King Island. All arrangements made by Steve and the team were set out which allowed us to enjoy two of the most spectacular golf courses any of us have ever played.  We also enjoyed wonderful food and wine from our dining experiences. The transport and golf arrangements went without any problems. We can recommend anyone thinking of heading to King Island to play golf to utilise the team at Golf & Leisure Getaways.

King Island, we will be back!!

Thanks again for all of your help.


Rod Threlfall

February 2020 – Vietnam

Hi Steve

Once again Golf & Leisure Getaways have proved to be a most professional company when putting together yet another golfing trip for my group. The complete itinerary including hotels, golf courses, transportation and tour guides you provided was perfect.

The restaurants you recommended, Cau Go in Hanoi and Golden Nut in Hoi An, were both excellent with their quality and service.  Also thanks for arranging our bus trip on our last day from Than Golf Club to be delayed, as this allowed us some quality time to enjoy our farewell lunch before heading to the airport and back to Oz.    

Most important as a travelling group, we all agreed that everything we experienced in Vietnam was above our expectations and will definitely be looking at this trip again in the near future.

Hi Steve,
The week was great and all the boys enjoyed themselves immensely. The trip was super organised and went off without a hitch which is a huge credit to yourself and your company.
Accommodation was great (a lot flasher than what we are used to). Transfers were perfect & John was awesome!
Thanks again for everything that you have done for us and we look forward to working with you again in the future and I will be recommending you to others.



Barba Group (Qld)

October 2019 – Kaho Yai, Thailand

Hi Steve,

On behalf of our group, we once again thank you for organising our trip which went very smoothly.  We played some very good courses, with Toscana Valley the pick of them and probably one of, if not, the best course we have played in Thailand. Our driver Unn looked after us brilliantly, as did all golf club staff.

Would recommend playing golf in Khao Yai area to everyone as the golf courses are equal to any of the other popular golfing destinations in Thailand and the weather is a little cooler up in the mountains.


Geoff Wallace Group

October 2019 – Hua Hin, Thailand

Hi Steve,

Thank you for organising the trip, it was brilliant!

Loved Banyan and Black Mountain courses the most. Transport was flawless, they were on time every day and the hotels were perfect.

I want to go back already!

Looking at the same time next year, probably go back to Hua Hin, as it was so good.

Thanks again!

Simon & Tom Camp (Queensland)

September 2019 – Pattaya, Thailand

The boys had a blast mate…..the trip and all transfers went well, where the hotel was located is a great place.

The drivers were on time, spot on every day and the vans are very good and never a problem to stop for a drink along the way.

It was a very good trip and I have 8 hands up to book the next one next year.

Many thanks Steve

Roberto Notte Group (W.A)

August 2019 – Hua Hin & Pattaya, Thailand

Hi Steve,

I know I can speak for all our group and resoundingly say that a great time was had by one and all.

The van transfers were great.. their drivers were always there on time ready to pick us up and deliver us safely to our destinations and their staff assisted brilliantly when requested.

The Avani hotel was fabulous, a real oasis in the heart of Pattaya. The upgrade to Garden View plus was a real highlight!

Siam Old and Laem Chabang were both spectacular, and Chee Chan was a great experience,

So I’d like to extend a hearty thank you for the arrangements you made for us.


Greg Bolton & Group

April 2019 – King Island

 Golf & Leisure Getaways organised Pacific Dunes members a fantastic trip to King Island. Steve was excellent to work with and ensured everything we needed was there for us.

April 2019 – King Island

Hi Steve,

On behalf of my group and myself, I want to thank you for organising what turned out to be a perfect weekend. The golf, food, accommodation and hospitality were all first class and the whole trip played out without a hitch. The feedback that I got from my group was that they had the trip of a lifetime. We were also extremely blessed with the weather with only a brief shower on Sunday morning which soon cleared in to a perfect day.

I will definitely be in contact to organise the same trip in 2020. Thanks again, you have been a pleasure to deal with.

Kind Regards

Robin Doodson, Territory Manager, Nuturf (QLD).

Chris Rider & Group

February 2019 – Hua Hin, Thailand

Hi Steve,

A quick note to thank you for all your diligent work in organizing a truly seamless golf tour to Hua Hin.  Everything went perfectly, from the airport transfers, accommodation and of course the golf bookings.  It was a pleasure to deal with you and have already recommended your services to a couple of other golfers keen for overseas trips.

Look forward to dealing with you again soon.


Stuart Ledder

February 2019 – South Australia

Thanks again Steve, the South Australia trip went to clockwork.  Royal Adelaide and Kooyonga were in brilliant condition and Links Lady Bay lived up to a true links course…light rain and windy.  Great experience!  Tununda was enjoyed and followed up with some great wine….”when in Rome…” The accommodation you chose suited us well, as we ate out each night and enjoyed a great night at Chinatown. Another Fabulous golfing week away – thank you!

I will keep in touch as we are still keen on Queenstown NZ later this year.

Chris Barker & Group

November 2018 
North Island, New Zealand

Hi Steve

I just want to say what a great trip we had to the North Island of New Zealand playing golf at Wairakei and Kinloch at Taupo, Cape Kidnappers at Napier and Royal Wellington and Paraparaumu at Wellington.  The whole trip went off without a hitch and you even managed to organise perfect weather!

It really was a trip of a lifetime for a lot of the group.

In particular thank you for all of the work you did in making this all happen so seamlessly and being available when we were on tour to answer a couple of questions and assisting when the luggage from one of the group went temporarily missing.  Your organisational skills and easy to deal with manner is why we will continue to be repeat customers.


Steve Leathley & Group

September 2018  – Vietnam

Hi Steve

Arrived back a couple of days ago and just want to say thanks for organising the trip, we had a great time. Vietnam is certainly a great experience.  We felt a bit apprehensive before going but we had nothing to worry about.  Everything worked well with the transport and hotels. Our original concerns about the internal flights were not justified as it all went very well. The transfers to the golf courses were always on time and very helpful

The golf was really good with Laguna and The Bluffs our favourite courses and we can say that the caddies at all the courses were top class.  It’s going to be lonely playing back home without them.

We will recommend your services to any of our friends are considering an Asian trip.

Best wishes

John & Jane Holmes

April 2018  
Chiang Mai & Bangkok – Thailand

Hi Steve,

Everything went like clockwork… we had a fantastic time in Chiang Mai and Bangkok. Your drivers were friendly and on time every day – great coordination!
The Anantara was just superb and could not fault in any way. In- house dining was first class & plenty of other options all in walking distance….we would stay there again. The golf courses were all enjoyable, but the Alpine club was a standout followed by Highlands…I’ve played some great golf courses in the world and they are both up there!
The Marriott in Bangkok was also fantastic with a high level of service. The Nikanti Golf Course was a gem…the layout, the condition and the clubhouse were fantastic – I would recommend this to everyone.
We had a very memorable trip and I must say you did a great job putting it all together…I will recommend your service to all my golfing friends.

Gary Rumble & golfing friends

April 2017 – Queenstown NZ

We engaged Golf & Leisure Getaways to manage our Millbrook New Zealand golf event in April 2017. From the start to the end they were a pleasure to work with. We found Steve very professional, the communication was impeccable, and all aspects of the event ran like clockwork, combined with Steve escorting the group of 22 and ensuring that everyone was looked after & having a wonderful time.

We would highly recommend Golf & Leisure Getaways & we have already rebooked for 2018!

Tom Sudano

January 2021 – King Island

Steve organised a three day golf trip to King Island for myself and three mates.

He was very helpful in helping us to think through the scoping of the trip (eg, how many rounds of golf, type of accommodation, dinners, etc). Once decided, I didn’t have to do a thing!

All flights, rental car, tee times, dining options and quarantine requirements were all provided to us.  Literally all we had to do was show up at Essendon airport to get our flights, land, pick up the car and start golfing!  He even followed up during our trip to ensure everything was going well.

This was the second trip organised by Steve.  We will be using him for all future golf trips.

Many thanks, Steve, for the great responsiveness, advice and ongoing support throughout our trip!

 All the best!

Under challenging conditions of COVID-19 the service provided by Steve Wylie was outstanding, nothing was too hard and he managed to arrange appropriate courses to fulfill our expectations. 

The accommodation at Mantra Apartments, Nelson Bay was A1 and the staff very helpful.

The suggested restaurants in Nelson Bay were great, we thoroughly recommend The Wharf and The Little Beach Boathouse, the food and staff were exceptional.

Thanks Steve for a well organised week for the Pacific Dunes members in Queenstown. Steve knows his way around Queenstown, trust me!
From accommodation location, to transfers, suggested dinner locations and the amazing weather he provided.

Anyone looking to go to Queenstown for a golf getaway, would be mad not to book with Steve. Thanks again!

Hi Steve

Thanks for a great trip, you were awesome to deal with!

We had a great time, everything was awesome. You guys looked after us so well…. we really enjoyed the golf and the house was perfect for our group.

John (transfers) was excellent …. He went out of his way to help us. We had a ball! The wine/beer tour was excellent and where we had lunch, I’m still talking about it!

Thanks once again for all you did. We try and book these every 2 years, so expect to hear from us again. 

Kind regards,

Hi Steve,

The trip was amazing, thanks for all your assistance. All the arrangements turned out great.

Wild Harvest Restaurant was fantastic, and the transfer to and from was great. Both courses are truly world class and will definitely be back – hopefully next time the weather is a little better.

Thanks again for all your help. Will be in touch for my next golf adventure.

Hi Steve

We all had a ball thanks.  Everything ran so smoothly. The transport guys were all so friendly,  and we got a quick visit to the dairy cheese factory on our way back to the airport. 

Both courses were stunning….and hard, but enjoyable.

Thanks for organising the trip – all 6 of us will be talking about it for years!

Just wanted to send you a big THANK YOU for making our annual “Salopian” golf event seamless.

All went extremely well from the flight over on the Friday morning to transportation and accommodation. Both Cape Wickham and Ocean Dunes are incredibly torturous and picturesque courses.

Dinners were a real highlight, we thoroughly enjoyed both Wild Harvest and the King Island GC which was a real surprise. Pity the weather wasn’t favourable but that does mean that we will be back again.

Thank you for making us as organisers look professional.

Once again thank you for arranging everything, it was a pleasure and I look forward to working with you in the future.

Hi Steve,

September 2019 – Hua Hin, Thailand 

 Hi Steve,

 Just wanted to provide some feedback on our recent golf trip to Hua Hin. As this was my first overseas golf trip, I did not really know what to expect, but what a fantastic trip it turned out to be.

The golf courses were amazing and in immaculate condition. The Amari Hotel was outstanding. The rooms were beautiful and quiet and the staff very friendly and helpful. 

The van drivers were fantastic and always there before the expected transfer time & with plenty of water for the transfers and golf. The vans used were really modern and very.

Steve, many thanks to you and your team for organising what was a fantastic golf holiday. We had loads of fun and some great golf and I will definitely be going on more of these trips in the future.

Kind Regards

 Hi Steve,

Just got back from our golfing trip.  Had a great time and all went to plan, transfers always on time, golf bookings fantastic (a little wet this time). 
Accommodation in Hua Hin and Bangkok spot on.

Again thanks for all your help and bookings were top notch!

Thank you Steve for another great week of golf, R&R & camaraderie at Millbrook in Queenstown NZ. This is the 5th year you have managed our Millbrook event & it continues to be an outstanding success, only possible with your commitment & dedication to delivering a high quality experience for our guests.

All of the arrangements you made were spot on & ran smoothly, including all the transfers throughout the week. The private functions at Millbrook Resort were again outstanding & provided  our guests with a first-class experience.

The feedback from the group was very positive & they are looking forward to future golf holidays under your management. Many of our guests are keen to introduce their friends to our group & give them the opportunity to experience the superb Millbrook Resort at first hand…which is great news. 

Thanks again Steve for all your hard work & dedication. As discussed, we have already locked in our dates for March 2020! 

Kind Regards,

March 2019 – King Island

Dear Steve,

 We have just arrived home after the most amazing weekend on King Island!

The lead up to our trip was fuss free, and nothing was too much trouble – flights, transfers, golf and restaurant bookings!

 Everything went to plan – flights on time, Gary waiting for us at the airport on landing.

Matt and Emma at “Ocean Dunes” made us toasted sandwiches and  a fabulous cheese platter post golf.

Jane at Cape Wickham was also gorgeous and we had another beautiful cheese platter after golf!

 We all loved our meals at “Oleada Restaurant” and “Wild Harvest” – again lovely staff.

 Our keys were in our doors when we arrived at “Boomerang by the Sea”

Mike introduced himself as we were having a drink on the balcony.  Seemed to be a common scenario wherever we went that people knew who we were!!

Gary our main driver has lived on the Island for 63 years and filled us in on the history of King Island as we travelled between courses.

The weekend was made even better with stunning courses, weather and company!

We will be back!

February 2019 – King Island

Our group of eight has travelled for golf since 2007 and in the past done our own bookings, but no more!

For our recent trip to King Island to play Ocean Dunes and Cape Wickham, we used Steve and his organisation was outstanding.  With everything going like clockwork, from the accommodation to golf bookings and the amazing service of Mike our driver, who was always on time and a great communicator.
I would recommend Steve to all and we will use him for our next trip to Vietnam in 2019.

February 2019 – Hua Hin, Thailand

Hi Steve, we had an wonderful golf trip to Hua Hin & Pattaya. The hotels you chose were perfect, the golf courses stunning & the transfer company you used were always on time & drivers very professional. Thank you for all recommendations you supplied me…. that made our whole Thailand experience very enjoyable including restaurants & places of interest were enjoyed by all in my group.

In summary, it was an amazing and rewarding trip, so on behalf of myself and my group we congratulate Golf & Leisure Getaways for an excellent and professional itinerary you prepared for us. I look forward to contacting you again as we have decided that our next trip will be to Vietnam.

Hi Steve

Just a short email to thank you for your efforts in organising our recent golf trip to the Central Coast and Hunter Valley.              

From the moment we arrived in Sydney to playing the golf courses and the accommodation arrangements, they could not have  been better organised.  We didn’t have a worry in the world.  We enjoyed the golf and the mixture of courses you recommended.

I know our group is already looking forward to our next golf trip and will discuss this with you next year.

May 2018  – King Island 

Hey Steve, just wanted to say a massive thanks for everything you did to get all 7 of us over to King Island for our golf trip. Not only did you have to arrange flights from Melbourne and Launceston, nothing ever seemed to be a problem, this included changing names on flights etc. Your recommendation for dinner on both nights was sensational and absolutely delicious. All the lads enjoyed the dinner, the transportation (which was flexible and at our needs) then to play 2 of the best courses in Australia was just to die for. We have all left the island with the fondest memories and will now complete yearly golf trips in our little posse. I would have no hesitation in recommending Steve and the team for anyone whom is thinking of doing any golf traveling in the future. We will definitely use Steve for our trip to President cup next year. Thanks Steve, you are a champ and if we ever meet face to face there’s a beer coming your way.

Just a quick note to thank you for organizing our recent golf trip to King Island. Everything went really smoothly and we had a fantastic time.

The two golf courses are magnificent and we were all pleasantly surprised by the quality of the accommodation . The food at the Boomerang restaurant was terrific and the ease of having all transfers included made it very easy to get around without worrying about a designated driver.

We will certainly be recommending you to our friends and thanks again.

February 2017 – King Island

We decided that King Island was a place that we really needed to go in order to play on the two championship courses that everyone was raving about. We were not disappointed. Both Cape Wickham and Ocean Dunes are incredible courses with fantastic water views.

Steve organised the whole trip and did a fabulous job. He sorted out our flights, great accommodation and even booked us in at a fabulous restaurant that had awesome views over the original King Island golf course. Steve made regular contact with us to check that we were all sorted.

We would definitely recommend getting him to sort out any golf trip you are planning on doing. We would also definitely recommend a golf trip to King Island … it is just incredible!
