An Interview With Nick Ciattei, President from Mid-Atlantic Golf Getaways nick@midatlanticgolfgetaways.com

Looking to plan the perfect golf trip to Mid-Atlantic? Planning a buddies trip or a romantic golf getaway can be a full time job not to mention pressure filled to deliver a memorable experience. Below is an interview with Nick Ciattei, President from Mid-Atlantic Golf Getaways who shares some insider information about traveling to Mid-Atlantic.

Please provide a brief company overview and why you enjoy being a golf tour operator?
Mid-Atlantic Golf Getaways partners with golf courses, resorts and hotels across four states and has been a one stop for custom stay-and-play golf trips since 2001. We feature some of the best golf courses this region has to offer with many placing in the Top 10 of their respective states.

We are golfers ourselves. We know the game. We know our regions.
We KNOW what golfers like on a golf trip and do everything possible to fulfill their needs.

Why should traveling golfers use your service as opposed to going directly through a golf course?
No matter what the size of your group is, you'll receive the same service from our regional golf experts whether you are planning a golf vacation for 2 or for 102. We listen to our customers, then provide our professional feedback and will do everything we can to make your trip a memorable one. Some of our patrons have been with Mid-Atlantic Golf Getaways for nearly 20 years!

What tips might you share with travelers as they start planning their golf trip? (general golf travel plans)
Have an idea of what types of courses you want to play.

Have a main date and a secondary date.

Having a general budget in mind is also a must.

What benefits can your business provide traveling golfers?
Let's say you have a group of 16 and you are the group leader. If you prefer, you can have EACH of your golfers contact us directly with their payment.

Our payment options include direct payment services PAYPAL and VENMO

We offer discounts to area restaurants and other regional information needed to make your trip a success.

We provide you with scorecards and goodies to complete your package.

We OFFER 100% refunds on cancellations within our 30-day window.
AND we offer RAIN REFUNDS, not rainchecks like many golf travel companies.

Any tips on working with you or golf travel operator?
Have questions ready to ask us and we will give you the suggestions for trips, areas and courses based upon that.

Understand that sometimes we may have to change the course rotation order or replace a course. In these cases, we always try to do what is best for the golf package success.

Choose a destination you specialize in and provide a typical or sample itinerary (golf and lodging, extra activites)?
Winchester Virginia is one of our best success stories. It has been featured across the nation on regional sports networks.

A favorite 3-day/2 Night package is playing both the courses at Rock Harbor (The Rock and The Boulder) in Winchester. Then add one of 9 regional courses including Blue Ridge Shadows, Shenandoah Valley and Bowling Green North.

Lodging choices include locations minutes from the downtown area. We even feature an historic downtown boutique hotel as an option.

Downtown Winchester will be the hot spot for your after-golf activities with a plethora of restaurants, bars and entertainment venues.

Charles Town Races and Slots is an easy 25-minute drive from most hotels.

There are museums, battlefields and historic landmarks to complete your activity schedule.
