We're golfers and have travelled the world extensively on our own 'golf adventures'. We understand the needs and wishes of discerning, travelling golfers from many years of personal experience. We have dealt with some of the best (and worst) golf travel companies in the world. That's why we created Global Golf (previously Personalised Golf Adventures) in 2001. We still manage, operate and staff the company directly. We have made it our business to learn the shortcuts and make the contacts that help us deliver unrivalled access and lifelong memories for you, your clients and members and the rest of our golfing friends. We are both currently members of The National and Yarra Yarra Golf Clubs in Melbourne and are fortunate enough to have played more than half of the Top 100 courses in the world.
Greg Gilson grew up around golf and golfers – his father was a long term member of the Queensland PGA. Greg worked in marketing and planning roles with Mobil for over 20 years (10 of those off shore). During this time he traveled extensively playing the world's greatest courses. He is a voracious reader of golf publications, is an amateur student of course architecture and has a wide knowledge of golf's history, traditions and destinations. This first hand experience, plus his organisation skills and attention to detail, are the key reasons clients constantly return for help planning their golf travel.
Biv Gilson was born in Colombia and worked as an engineer as well as in marketing and advertising roles with Mobil Corporation. She has only been playing golf since 1995 and became a proficient player and prominent identity in Melbourne women's golf. She has been Club Champion at, and played in winning Division 1 Pennant teams for, both The National and Yarra Yarra Golf Clubs. Biv has an outstanding track record in a wide variety of roles in the areas of golf retail, operations and administration, including 7 years with Golf Victoria - Victoria's golf state association.
