Welsh Golf Breaks


After a successful 26-year run with Golf Tee Time Service, Graham Ruth sold the UK segment of the business to Nick Mier and Keith Parriss. Together, the two bring a wealth of experience, boasting over 30 years with GTTS and collectively over 50 years in the golf industry. Welsh Golf Breaks is one brand operating under the parent business name of Exclusive Golf Breaks. Despite the name change and Graham’s shift to a new desk across the corridor, it is business as usual.

I caught the golfing bug from a young age and have been a member of Tavistock Golf Club for over 30 years. Growing up two doors away from Graham (founder of Golf Tee Time Service) and his family, I was quickly introduced to the game!

I started with Golf Tee Time Service after completing my Business Studies degree back in 2004. Graham had just secured a contract with the South East Wales Tourist Board and this was my first project. From here other opportunities soon followed and we now have offerings across most parts of the UK and Europe.

Nowadays family life and the office take up much of my time but I still get out for the odd game when possible.

My golfing life started at Yelverton Golf Club, a natural course on the western edges of Dartmoor. Having made some money in my early teens from finding members’ golf balls, then selling them back, I bought a few second-hand golf clubs and had a go myself. I progressed to became a junior member and was taught at the Junior Tuition sessions run by the club professional at the time, Eric Lester (8th, 1958 Open Championship). My game peeked in 1993 when I was crowned Club Champion, but family life and two hip operations have put my playing days on hold.

When a vacancy arose for bar staff at the golf club, I took on the role for what I considered to be a stop gap, but this progressed to becoming house manager! Twenty-six years later it was time for a new challenge and this is when I joined Golf Tee-Time Service.

Most of my playing experience is on South West courses, but my knowledge of other areas has grown considerably and there will always be Graham Ruth’s vast golfing experience to tap into in the adjacent office.
