Pioneer Golf, Inc, specializes in private golf tours, designed for parties of four to twenty or more. Our office is in Austin, Texas. We customize itineraries along the lines of what our clients - whether they be a group of old friends, fellow club members, or a corporate/incentive group - may specifically have in mind. Our area of specialization is the British Isles, about which we safely claim to have extensive knowledge. Pioneer was established in 1971 but hasn't always concentrated on golf tours. For many years, as Pioneer World Travel, Inc, we operated customized corporate incentive, special interest, and purely sightseeing groups to destinations worldwide. Over the years, many of those special interest groups had a sporting theme, such as golf. In 1997 we began to actively market golf-specific trips to Scotland and Ireland. For this purpose, a separate company, Pioneer Golf, Inc was formed. In 2000, the larger worldwide group division of the company was divested, leaving us to concentrate only on golf. It is this background as tour operators that lends itself well to what we are doing in the world of golf. Peter was born and raised in Scotland and is an immigrant to the United States. He is a 1968 economics graduate of the University of Texas and a golfer. Peter's own golf and British background supplement our technical expertise. Peter has spent 35 years in the tour operating industry. His early years included some guiding and plenty of traveling. He soon struck out on his own and has handled many corporate incentive trips, study abroad programs for universities, alumni trips, and general sightseeing excursions. He sold this company in 2000 with the intent to focus on his passiongolf. Pioneer Golf was started in 1997 and began to gain momentum in 2000 once its larger parent company was sold. It is now one of the largest and most reputable golf tour operators that specialize in Scotland and Ireland. Peter and his wife Laura live in Austin. They have two sons, Mark and Stephen. Stephen is a fund manager in New York.
