Private Sale for GVI Readers: Save $550 on the Ultimate, 2014 Masters Golf Vacation

by Craig Better

Jan242014

adam-scott-winsRemember Adam Scott rolling in that long, sudden-death putt to win last year’s Masters?

Or Bubba Watson the year before, hitting that magical, curving shot to win his green jacket?

The Masters always seems to produce this kind of drama, and if you want to experience it in person, keep reading.

That’s because I’ve arranged a $550 discount on the Masters trip of a lifetime.

(And, by the way, flights to Atlanta are abundant and inexspensive right now.)

More accurately, this is the Masters “golf vacation” of a lifetime, because it includes:

• VIP access to the final round of the Masters
• Police escort to Augusta National
• 3 nights of Ritz-Carlton accommodations
• 2 rounds of award-wining golf (with carts) at nearby Reynolds Plantation resort
• Private coach transfers
• Keepsake Masters golf chair
• On-site hosts to attend to your every need

Public Price: $6,195
GVI Discount: -$550
GVI Reader Price: $5,645
Click Here Now (or by March 7) to lock in the discount.There is no booking obligation.
Yes, it’s first class all the way, with every detail carefully taken care of by the renown travel specialists at Horizon & Co. (your on-site hosts), which is why this price is a steal.Before we get into those details, here’s the trip itinerary:

Saturday, April 12 (Arrive and unwind):
Fly into Atlanta and make your way to the Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead, which offers (and is convenient to) some of the area’s best restaurants. You’ll meet your Horizon & Co. guide at check-in, then spend the rest of the day at your leisure.

Sunday, April 13 (Attend the Masters):
You’ll enjoy a private coach transfer to the Masters, including a police escort through the traffic in Augusta right to the gates of Augusta National.

Masters
Here, you’ll step into Horizon & Co.’s private hospitality center (a classic, southern-style mansion; photo below) for a brief orientation and to receive two of the most coveted items in all of sports: your Augusta National Patron’s Badge and your commemorative Masters golf chair.
August National
Then, enjoy the Masters. You can follow your favorite players across the grounds of Augusta National or let the action come to you while relaxing in your new chair. And of course, whenever you feel like it, you can escape the crowd and partake of the impressive spread at Horizon & Co’s constantly changing hospitality buffet.

Following the “green jacket” presentation ceremony (and perhaps one last visit to the hospitality buffet), you’ll board Horizon’s coach for the swift transfer to the posh Ritz-Carlton Lodge at Reynolds Plantation.

Monday, April 14 (Play golf):
The first part of the day is at your leisure. Want to sleep in or enjoy the spa and other amenities at Reynolds Plantation? It’s totally up to you. After lunch, you can tee it up a any one of the resort’s six courses (Great Waters is pictured at right). The evening is also at your leisure, with plenty of resort dining options.
Reynold Plantation
Tuesday, April 15 (Play golf, depart):
Set out for your second round on one of the Reynolds Plantation courses. After your game, enjoy a snack and board the coach for your transfer to Atlanta airport (in time for flights leaving at 6:30 pm onwards.Sounds like an amazing trip, right?

Ben Steed, a business owner from Texas, enjoyed it a few years ago.

Ben lives in a golf community and has taken dozens of golf trips over the 20-years he has been playing the game.

Here’s what he emailed a friend when he got back:

“Our trip began by meeting the Horizon & Co. staff in Atlanta at the Ritz-Carlton Buckhead, a beautiful hotel and very well equipped to handle

our group. From here on, I never handled my bag. It was just always where I wanted it to be and needed it to be. Perfect!

“The next few days were filled with class, excitement, police escorts, and first class accommodations. I can honestly say, not even a single thing was left out.

“You will not find a more honest, sincere, helpful, classy, humorous, accommodating, and warm group of people to travel with and take care of your every wish and whim. I would not consider going any other way for a golf trip of a lifetime. Absolutely amazing. Something I will never forget.”

Horizon & Co., Masters of the Masters Vacation

If you’re not already familiar with them, Horizon & Co. is a Virtuoso accredited travel supplier that has been “crafting unique travel experiences for discerning travelers since 1963.”

Horizon & Co.
Like you, I’m aware other firms offer Masters packages, but I’ve also heard horror stories about people spending thousands of dollars only to find there’s been some kind of “mix up” with their badges when they get down there (you don’t buy tickets to the Masters, you “borrow” patrons’ badges).

I can recommend Horizon (which I’ve done now for the last few years) without a hint of hesitation.

In a word, they’re pros.

Here are some of their beliefs about doing business and taking care of customers, which, frankly, sound a lot like our own:

True luxury is knowing the difference between the best and the most expensive

Trust is the hardest thing to earn and the easiest thing to lose

Making savvy choices is more difficult than following the herd

We believe in saying what we mean and standing behind our word

Exceptional service is about anticipating needs rather than responding to problems

In addition to Ben’s glowing letter above, I thought you might like to hear from other Horizon & Co. customers:

“So again Horizon, you have come through for us when we needed you, and we are very grateful. This of course makes me wonder, ‘Why in the world doesn’t everyone travel with Horizon?’” – W. Almonte

“We would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending you to family and friends (in fact we’ve already started), and would love to go somewhere again with Horizon & Co.” - R. Ware

Even other travel agents rely on Horizon & Co. as their “go-to” source:

“My first booking with Horizon was straight off the web site. I was happy, my clients were dazzled, and I have never stopped thanking Horizon for making me a star.” - Diane E., Virtuoso Travel Specialist

“I honestly think you are the finest company in the world. You have gone above, beyond, and into the stratosphere for my clients.”
- Jeri P., Sherman Oaks, Calif.

Today’s Special Offer for GVI Readers

Ok, here’s the best part of today’s email, the special offer that Horizon & Co. is willing to extend to Golf Vacation Insider readers.

Horizon & Co.
This trip is listed at $6,195 on Horizon & Co’s website.

However, Horizon is extending a $550 discount to GVI Readers (but only until March 7), bringing the trip cost down to $5,645. This is the lowest price anywhere.

That’s still a good deal of money, but here’s why I said it’s “a steal.”

How they mow for the Masters
Most Masters trips are exactly that — trips only to see the Masters.

These tournament-only trips still cost thousands of dollars, but they don’t include two rounds of top-notch golf (including carts); they don’t include a police escort and VIP hospitality on site; they don’t include a commemorative Masters chair; and instead of the Ritz-Carlton, they put you up in the Hampton or Holiday Inn.

Go ahead and check around. You’ll see what I mean.

Want to Learn More or Book this Trip? Here’s Exactly What to Do

If you want to take this trip, or you simply want to learn more about it, here’s what to do:

Click here now (or by March 7) and indicate your name and preferred phone number and email address. Your message will go directly to Olivia (and me).

By doing this, you’ll lock in the special package and $550 discount if you decide to travel. Of course, you’re not obligated to book anything.

Olivia at Horizon & Co. will then contact you — she’ll be delighted to share the details about the trip and answer any questions you have.

Remember, whether you ultimately book this trip or not, you must reply before March 7 to be eligible for the $550 discount.

There is no cost to speak to Olivia and certainly no obligation or pressure to take this trip (it’s just not Horizon & Co.’s style), but if the customer testimonials on this page are any indication, you’ll likely have the time of your life.
