Danny has been in the golf vacation industry for over 20 years in various roles including marketing, program development, hotel, golf course, airline relations and contracting, senior sales and reservation team trainer and supervisor.
He's worked for a couple of Canada's top vacation companies including WestJet Vacations. As their golf specialist, he was responsible for all golf-related hotel and golf course contracts, marketing and promotion, sales, product and sales training to their reservation and outside sales staff.
Danny joined Ross at BC Golf Guide in the fall of 2010 to grow both the inbound and outbound business, as well as assist with marketing, product development and contracting. Based in Ontario, he's lost golf balls in several countries and would say his favourite courses are: Pinehurst #2, Kiawah Ocean Course, Nicklaus North, Tower Ranch, Tobiano, Le Diable and any course on the Robert Trent Jones Trail.
BCgolfguide will adhere to the rules and regulations set forth
by the Provincial Health Officer (PHO). As the situation remains fluid
across Canada, we will monitor announcements and operate accordingly.
Standard Policy - For Travel in British Columbia Regions
Playing golf during the pandemic was recognized as a safe outdoor activity with safety protocols in place. If you are considering a golf trip during 2021, BCgolfguide encourage you to research and understand current protocols prior to your visit.
COVID-19 is now a known condition and your health is of paramount importance.
If a travel ban (NOT travel advisory) is put in place prior to your trip arrival date, we will work with your group. Refunds may be provided, less any non-refundable deposits charged by BCgolfguide or our travel partners. These specific non-refundable deposit amounts will remain valid as a credit for use with BCgolfguide for two (2) years from the original planned arrival date. Credit card fees, as outlined below in the "Payments" section of our Terms and Conditions, will not be refunded.
Our COVID -19 travel policy suggests that if you are able to safely travel by (plane, ferry, automobile), can safely stay in a hotel, and the golf courses are open for play, the expectation is that your group fulfills its trip as originally planned. Everyone is expected to practice safety, be respectful, and follow the rules and guidelines set out by our travel partners.
If you feel the unknowns associated with the COVID-19 pandemic in the future create discomfort or apprehensiveness at your end, perhaps it's best you do not plan a golf trip at this time.
If you test positive for COVID-19 prior to your
trip and it impacts on fulfilling your trip, we will ask for your test
results. Upon review, we will refund you portions of your package price
where we can. These instances will require a case-by-case review by
BCgolfguide, to assess all variables. A couple of examples would be the
re-scheduling of a trip or adjusting costs if the group size reduces,
among other considerations.
No social gatherings of any size
with anyone outside your household or core bubble. This means that our
clients' should not be sharing vacation accommodation with people
outside of their core bubble. Otherwise, they will be in contravention
of the Public Health Order. This order has no termination date and is in
effect until the Provincial Health Officer updates it.
Golf Vacation Package Quotations
Our Featured Packages are available to you exactly as they are presented, or you can use them as a guideline. BCgolfguide will gladly customize a quote for you and your group. If there is something specific you would like to include, please don’t hesitate to ask us.
Reservations – Booking Your Trip
We require a valid credit card to proceed with booking your accommodation and tee times. We will process a minimum deposit of $250 and up to 20% of your total trip value. This becomes a non-refundable deposit by the Group Leader and guests depending on whom made the original deposits. We may be required to collect additional deposits that are for our hotel / condo / golf course and shuttle partners.
Payments for your Golf Vacation Package
Your personal itinerary page will include a record of your deposit, final payment amounts for each player, along with payment due dates. Player payments are generally due 30 to 45 days prior to your arrival date and are based on the size of your group. If you are booking within 30 days of arrival date, your full package price is due in full at time of booking.
The group organizer is liable for required payments when others in the group fail to pay. Simply contact us if these guests do not plan on attending. Also, be aware that with an odd number of travelers and hotel room needs, extra costs maybe be incurred in addition to the original package price. Please ensure your group is aware of these commitments.
Your confirmed travel itinerary will outline your group’s payment due dates, amounts due and any group specific cancellation requirements.Important Note: To enable easy, online payments, PayPal is our official credit card payment provider. Currently, when a refund is processed, PayPal will refund the total amount, which includes its "credit card processing fees". PayPal has changed their policy and any amounts refunded to our customers will be adjusted to provide for PayPal's 4% credit card processing fees penalty. To clarify, if a refund is processed, PayPal will retain 4%.
Cancelling outside of 30 days:Your original deposit will be retained and used as a full credit to be used within 24 months of your previously planned arrival date. Some of our partners ( hotels / condos / shuttle ) that may have collected deposits from us. You may risk this portion as being "lost" but we will work with you to turn these amounts into future credit as well. This will be on a case by case basis.

refunds available, however, we will work with each group on a
case-by-case basis. Also, please be aware that when the group numbers
reduce, costs that have been averaged equally over the original number
of travelers will be adjusted accordingly. We require the group
organizer to cover this short fall and arrange to be reimbursed directly
from others in the group.
Please be aware that if you cancel, and you are room sharing with others, costs per person will change. You may have to forfeit a % of your package fees such that others do not incur extra charges. This can be discussed with your group on how to handle this.
