The Golf de la Luz Team

Golf de la Luz began in February 2004 as a result of a brief golfing holiday in the Costa de la Luz (Huelva region) in late 2003 where an opportunity arose to develop a destination-specific golf travel company for that region in particular. At that time, prior to the economic downturn, huge investment in the travel industry – and especially golf – was still taking place in the Huelva, Cadiz and Eastern Algarve regions and we saw the chance to develop a specialist golf travel brand focussed primarily on the area.

Since then we have sold only accommodation and golf courses that we have stayed and played at throughout the Costa de la Luz, Seville, Algarve, Lisbon and Turkish golfing areas and this experience-led proposition has proved to be successful and popular with our ever-growing client base.

Run by golfers, for golfers, and with an unrivalled and comprehensive knowledge of the regions, we are confident you will find Golf de la Luz to be the only real choice for your vacation in these areas. We have personal relationships with all the hotels and accommodation suppliers, golf courses and car rental companies we offer, which gives us in-depth knowledge and the ability to create truly flexible packages for every need.


Dan Thomson

Dan Thompson, Owner & Overseas Sales Consultant

Owner & Overseas Sales Consultant


With over 20 years experience in the travel industry including working at British Airways for 11 years, Dan brings a wealth of international travel knowledge to Golf de la Luz.

After leaving Oxford Poly in 1995 (or Oxford Brookes University as it is now known) with a degree in Cartography and Geography he worked at BA until 2006. During the last couple of years there Dan, along with Jonny Lord, started and developed Golf de la Luz from scratch and we are still providing great golf holidays – and more importantly- excellent customer service and experiences for our clients travelling with us to Spain, Portugal and Turkey.

Golf was always just a hobby for Dan, and the opportunity to combine this hobby with a career in the travel and golf industry was too good to miss, although what has really suffered is his handicap – which has unfortunately only gone up in recent years!


Jonathan Sharp

Jonathan Sharp, Overseas Sales Consultant

Overseas Sales Consultant


Jonathan joined Golf de la Luz as a full time Overseas Sales Consultant in mid 2014 after successfully completing a National Diploma in Golf Studies and a Sport & Golf Management BA Hons degree at Myerscough College which is part of the University of Central Lancshire.

The degree course included playing and travel experience in Spain and Portugal along with various tournament management opportunities at professional events in the UK.

Jonathan is no longer Golf de la Luz’s finest golfer since Andrew (below) joined the team! However he does manage to maintain a handicap of 5 at Hallowes Golf Club in South Sheffield, so he could still be the man to ask for if you want to talk about a decent level of amateur golf!

Contact Jonathan at Golf de la Luz to discuss your golf holiday anytime.
