The golf trip was great! The accommodations were perfect, as was the timing of everything scheduled.
Thanks again for putting together the itinerary-everyone had a blast!

Pebble Beach Group Trip October 2023
I wanted to send you a short note to thank you for all of your help. Everything about the trip exceeded any and all expectations that we had hoped for. The scenery, accommodations, and most importantly the golf, we’re all first class. We had so much fun, met so many nice people and most importantly, made memories that we will carry with us for a long time.
We had a family golf holiday in Pebble Beach in June.
When we planned this I contacted local agents Saunter Luxury. I expected as locals they would be well placed to ensure we totally enjoyed this bucket list experience.
Holly and Pat did not disappoint and we are still buzzing about it today. The golf courses might sell themselves and they are awesome but their local knowledge, advice and “can do” attitude ensured the other details were delivered. The Spanish Bay Hotel and restaurant recommendations in the resort ensured every day was a good day.
If you love golf and you get the chance you should if possible play Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill. You won’t regret it. If you do give Saunter a call, they will make sure a wonderful experience surpasses your expectations

I have been dreaming for 30 years about a trip to Pebble Beach for my 50th birthday. I started playing golf when I was 20 and thought it would be the Bucket List dream of all time to go to the place where legends play when I turned 50. Right when I turned 49 I began to do some research on how to plan this trip when I stumbled upon Holly and Pat with Saunter Luxury Travel and they helped me make the dream come true. Super friendly, fun and competent, I found even the planning part to be the experience of a life time. Working with them was a pleasure and I never had a question that wasn’t answered and everything was beyond what I could have expected. Thank you Holly and Pat for being a part of dreams coming true!

We had the most enjoyable golf trip to Monterey last week. Your help in every aspect made our stay unforgettable. Many thanks for allowing us the use of pull carts for our Pebble rounds. The courses, weather, accommodations, and your expertise were 5 stars. I have already passed your contact information on to my friends who want the same experience. Thank you again and Daria and I look forward to contacting you in the future for our next trip.

I’ve planned many golf trips over the years and it’s not an easy task to lineup tee times, hotel reservations, and restaurant recommendations without knowing the area. My foursome enlisted Saunter Luxury Experiences to plan an epic golf weekend on the Monterey Peninsula. They mapped out a 3 day 5 round golf stay and play package for our group that included rounds at Pasatiempo, Bayonet & Blackhorse, Poppy Hills, and the grand finale at Pebble Beach. It was a weekend to remember and our group can’t wait to get back. Thanks Pat and Saunter Luxury Experiences!

I have booked golf trips for our group all over the U.S. and overseas and I would have to say Saunter Experiences is one of the finest booking agencies I have encountered. For our bucket list trip to Monterey we found them to be invaluable. Through their connections they were able to arrange tee times for us not only at Pebble and Spyglass, but in addition at Private courses we otherwise would not have had an opportunity to play. With their thorough knowledge of the area they with able to help us with hotels and restaurants too, along with suggestions and directions for some sightseeing. Their service is outstanding and they kept us informed on all the details. Holly was truly wonderful. We could not have asked for a friendlier, more helpful, thoughtful professional to handle our trip. I would recommend their service for any trip you may be considering and in fact we will be using them again for another trip to Monterey. There will be more golf trips in the years ahead and I expect we'll be using them for those trips as well.

Saunter coordinated one of the most memorable golf experiences of our lives. In December, I took three business clients to Monterey for a weekend golf trip. To begin planning the trip I first contacted the owner, Holly, and we discussed some of the basic details: dates, budget, and travel arrangements. By the end of that same day, she presented me with quotes for multiple different locations for golf and lodging. Once I made the selection, she sent me the agreement, collected payment, and everything was handled. Fortunately, Holly has local connections in the Monterey area that no other travel agency can rival. Finally, at the end of each day, Holly texted us dinner suggestions based on the type of food we were craving. My clients were enamored with the overall experience. It was truly first class, and not a single detail was overlooked. I know it was all due to the efforts of Pat and his staff. We will ABSOLUTELY use Saunter for our next golf outing.

I reached out to Holly regarding my trip and shared some of the other facilities we were interested in playing. Having only a surface level knowledge of the region, I was struggling to pull together tee times, lodging and logistics. This is where Holly came in, securing the times we needed at Pasatiempo at a very competitive rate along with rooms at a first class hotel.
We were able to handle all financial considerations individually and directly through their site so when we arrived each day at the course, we basically went straight to the range or putting green to start warming up. We even had a few changes once we were booked and Holly accommodated those seamlessly and once all was set, provided a detailed itinerary for the group.
To top it off she included an extensive list of dining recommendations, all of which were spot on. Casanova was superb for dinner. Without hesitation I would recommend Holly if you are looking for a first class and hassle free experience in planning a golf trip to the Monterey Peninsula.

When eight of us first decided to play golf in the Monterey area, I had no idea how to go about arranging tee times and other accommodations in the area. Luckily I met Pat through a contact at Bayonet/Blackhorse. Pat took it from there arranging tee times at five different golf courses to include two, 36 hole days. Transportation was also arranged so that we could easily meet tee times. And, all courses expected us upon our arrival and treated us very well.
Holly stepped in and made all arrangements for our house to be stocked with food and beverages. She went as far to put everything away and didn’t miss a thing we needed. She actually bought a few things we had forgotten on our list. And, she offered to make dining reservations wherever we went.
I would definitely recommend using Pat and Holly as they make the golf, lodging, transportation, meals and entertainment a seamless experience. We will definitely use them again when we come back to the area or visit Italy.

My wife and I wanted to attend the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach but knew what a mess the traffic and parking can be. I was referred to Saunter by a friend and it was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in planning a trip. Pat kept in contact with me from beginning to the end, answered all my questions quickly and thoroughly, and was very detail oriented. On the day of the trip everything went smooth with no issues, it was clear all the small details had been thought about in advance and planned for. I highly recommend Saunter and will be contacting them again for future trips.

My experience was great from start to finish. Booking my tour with Saunter was seamless and took all of the stress out from planning a golf trip to Monterey. I got to play gorgeous golf courses, experience awesome restaurants and check out all of the local hidden beach spots. I would go back again in a heartbeat!

Booking a trip abroad is overwhelming, I was worried about train schedules, tour guides, hotel pricing and where to eat. The only way to thoroughly enjoy a trip to Europe is to have someone do all the work for you and just tell you where to go, stay and eat. Pat was wonderful. He took the scariness out of our trip and for that we will forever be grateful. It is not good enough to just go, you have to experience places like Bellagio and Florence and that is what Pat and Saunter creates....experiences that your family will remember for a lifetime......I know we will.
