2017 Open Championship Golf Cruise ~ Royal Birkdale, Golf Cruise Vacation by PerryGolf

2017 Open Championship Golf Cruise ~ Royal Birkdale
England, Ireland, Wales & Scotland on Azamara Journey*

13 Nights | 6 Rounds | Attend The Open on Sunday
Southampton - Edinburgh | 19 July – 1 August 2017

*Your host for this voyage will be PerryGolf co-founder Colin Dalgleish.

Our 13 night voyage will begin in Southampton, England for its journey through the British Isles with ten ports-of-call including a call at Liverpool to attend the final day’s play of the 146th Open Championship at the magnificent Royal Birkdale Golf Club.  The itinerary is beautifully balanced combining famous city experiences such as Cork, Dublin, Belfast and Edinburgh along with visits to the charming island of Guernsey and the Isle of Skye, the most famous of Scotland’s Hebridean archipelago.  Our call at Invergordon will take us to the very heart of the Scottish Highlands before heading south again to Edinburgh, Scotland’s beautiful capital city.

The golf arrangements are exceptional. Your biggest decision may well be whether to join the ARNOLD PALMER flight or the LEE TREVINO flight.  Either way, you are assured of six fabulous rounds including a mixture of Royal Clubs, Open Championship and Ryder Cup venues. The PerryGolf staff will oversee all aspects of your golf experience from daily pairings to caddie arrangements and the handling of your golf clubs, which will be set up at each club awaiting your arrival from the ship.

The on board experience with Azamara is to want for nothing. Our companies partnered since 2011 and found an ideal match of form and function. The 690 passenger Journey is large enough to provide every comfort and amenity, yet nimble enough to navigate smaller harbours.  Azamara is recognized as a specialist for “destination immersion” by providing more time in port than other major cruise lines. You’ll find an impressive selection of Land Discoveries® that you can enjoy to their fullest. PerryGolf also offers accompanying non-golfing spouses the option to attend the final day’s play of the 146th Open Championship. It really is the perfect vacation for golfers and non-golfers alike!

Forty-four suites are available on Journey, each attended by English-style butler service. Dining, wine, beer, spirits, coffees and sodas plus shuttle service to and from port communities, and more is inclusive along with all gratuities. Better yet, two full days at sea are scheduled for you to unwind with the help of this outstanding vessel. If you are inclined to indulge, we recommend you make your arrangements without delay.

20 JULY, THURSDAY; ST PETER PORT, GUERNSEY (8:00AM / 1:00PM)

Guernsey, or the Bailiwick of Guernsey by its official title, is a self-governing possession of the British Crown found off the coast of Normandy, France in the English Channel.  It is a wonderful juxtaposition of England and France with an English lean by virtue of the Norman invasion of England in 1066. St. Peter Port overlooks the harbor, with rows of brightly painted houses, and terraced gardens. The island is ideal for rambles along cliffside paths and through the bucolic interior.  While fishing, flower growing, and dairy farming are still important, Guernsey's favorable tax climate has brought an influx of offshore banks and insurance companies with their attendant bistros and boutiques. It was here in exile from 1855-1870 where Victor Hugo wrote some of his best-known works including Les Misérables.

21 JULY, FRIDAY: COBH (CORK), IRELAND (8:30am / 8:00pm)

Located on Ireland’s southeast coast in County Cork, the quaint seaside town of Cobh is known for its great maritime heritage and seafaring history.  As Ireland’s only dedicated cruise terminal, Cobh was the departure point for 2.5 million of the six million Irish people that immigrated to North America between 1848 and 1950. It remains a popular port of call today for cruise liners from all over the world in part due to the fact that Cobh was the last port of call for RMS Titanic.  Cobh has remained largely unchanged since that fateful day in 1912 with brightly colored houses along streets that climb to the top of the hill which is crowned by the imposing Cobh Cathedral, St. Coleman's Cathedral with its carillon of 47 bells. On the waterfront there is a statue of Annie Moore who was the first person admitted to the United States through the new immigration center at Ellis Island on January 1, 1892.

LEE TREVINO:  Today play Fota Island Deerpark Course, located on a 780 acre island in Cork Harbour.  Routed through mature woodlands and highlighted by pot bunkers and double greens with undulating slopes, the course was host venue to the PGA European Tour Irish Open in 2001 and 2002.  Note: Golf cart venue.

ARNOLD PALMER:  Today play Cork Golf Club, located on Little Island on the outskirts of the city. The Club was founded in 1888 but moved to its present location in the early 1920’s where it underwent a major upgrade overseen by the renowned architect Alister MacKenzie of Augusta National and Royal Melbourne fame. The club has played host to many national and international events over the years.

22 JULY, SATURDAY; HOLYHEAD, WALES (9:00am / 8:00pm)

Inhabited since prehistoric times, and dotted with Britain’s highest concentration of early settlements, Holyhead was also one of the last pockets of the old Celtic religion, with its mysterious druid priests. The town center is built around St. Cybi's Church, which is found inside one of Europe's few three-walled Roman forts (the fourth wall being the sea). The Romans also built a watchtower on the top of Holyhead Mountain inside Mynydd y Twr, a prehistoric hill fort. Holyhead lies just beyond the mountains of Snowdonia, likened to the Alps on a smaller scale with a scenically beguiling composition of peaks, lakes, and waterfalls. No matter that its tallest mountain only rises 3,560 feet; it was tall enough that the whole of Sir Edmund Hillary’s team came here to practice and test equipment before their Everest climb. The current lighthouse is on South Stack on the other side of Holyhead Mountain and is open to the public. The area is also popular with birdwatchers.

23 JULY, SUNDAY; LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND (7:00AM / 10:00PM)

Liverpool is a UNESCO World Heritage City. It offers a unique mix of contemporary and classic architecture. The city’s many exclusive independent boutiques and unique gift shops make it one of the leading retail destinations in England. It is a sports mecca with its Premier League football, Rugby League club, major championship golf at Royal Liverpool (Hoylake) and Aintree Racecourse.  Best of all, it is home to The Beatles.  You can walk down Penny Lane.  You can visit Strawberry Field which was a Salvation Army children’s home said to be the place that inspired John to become a musician. Visit the site and have your photo taken next to the famous gates.

Liverpool Celebrates 50 Years of the Beatles VIDEO

Today attend the final round of the 146th Open Golf Championship at Royal Birkdale.  The 2008 Open Championship here was won by Padraig Harrington whose successful defense of his 2007 title was the first European to do so since James Braid in 1906.   Unexpected headlines were made by 53 year old Greg Norman who was playing in his first major in four years and led by two with 18 to play.  A 77 on Sunday produced an admirable but disappoint third place finish.

Azamara Journey’s convenient berth in nearby Liverpool will allow for frequent and convenient ground transportation service to the golf course allowing flexibility for how long you choose to remain at the venue.  Non-golfing spouses are invited to sign up to attend at additional cost.

24 JULY, MONDAY; DUBLIN, IRELAND (7:30AM / 10:30PM)

Fortunately, this is one of our longest port visits because there is a lot to do in Dublin.  A good place to begin is The National Museum of Ireland on Kildare Street for a well-designed archaeological collection featuring Bronze Age gold jewelry and Viking swords. The stars of the show are the “bog people” — preserved corpses of men who were killed (presumably sacrificed) and tossed into peat bogs during the Iron Age. The preservative qualities are remarkable.  Dublin is home to St Patrick’s Cathedral of course but much of Ireland’s history can be read in Christ Church Cathedral, which dates back to circa 1030. The medieval crypt is full of treasures plus the belfry tour (11:30 a.m. and 1:15 p.m.) provides a beautiful view and an up-close look at the flying buttresses, as well as the chance to try bell-ringing. Dublin’s booming culinary scene is found along Exchequer Street where The Green Hen has won many admirers with its combination of French atmosphere and Franco-Irish cuisine made with locally sourced ingredients. Try the pan-fried duck breast.  Finally, while craft beer is certainly the popular new thing, a pint of “the black stuff” is still required drinking on any trip to Dublin. The Guinness Storehouse museum at the St. James’s Gate brewery explains how the stout is made and how to pull a proper pint at the correct 45-degree angle and waiting 119.5 seconds before topping it off. Take it up to the Gravity Bar, where the 360-degree view of Dublin is worth lingering over.

LEE TREVINO:  Today play Portmarnock Golf Club consistently ranked as one of the top five courses in Ireland.  It has played host to numerous Irish Open Championships plus the 1991 Walker Cup match starring a young Phil Mickelson.

ARNOLD PALMER:  Today play the Palmer Ryder Cup Course of The K Club.  This beautiful parkland course was designed by Arnold Palmer and hosted the 2006 Ryder Cup with all is attendant drama. The course covers an area of mature woodland to the west of Dublin City to which fourteen lakes have been added. Note: Golf cart venue

25 JULY, TUESDAY; BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND (7:30AM / 9:45PM)

20th century Belfast had the largest and most productive shipyard in the world, gaining global renown with the launch of the RMS Titanic. Located on the slipways where she was built is a stunning new museum, opened in time for the 100th anniversary of Titanic’s only voyage and tragic demise. Today the city and riverfront are undergoing a 21st century transformation, but many exuberant Victorian and Edwardian buildings still sport the carved heads of kings and queens. As you explore the city, keep an eye out for “the murals.”  These somewhat troubling freelance works appearing on building walls provide insight into the period known simply as “The Troubles.”

Enjoy it on your own arrangements or via Azamara Land Discoveries®

Port Explorer Guide – Belfast

LEE TREVINO:  Today play Royal Portrush. It holds the distinction of being the only course in Ireland to have hosted The Open Championship (The British Open).   Royal Portrush has now been invited to again host The British Open, anticipated as 2019 after an almost 70 year absence.  The Dunluce Course is as fine a links as you will find anywhere, with the 5th being a particularly memorable hole to a green hanging on the edge of a cliff. Consistently ranked in the top 20 of the world's best courses. 

ARNOLD PALMER:  Today play Royal County Down. Located in the town of Newcastle to the south of Belfast. Consistently ranked in the top 10 courses in the world, this is a true test of links golf set against the magnificent backdrop of the Mountains of Mourne. Host to the 2007 Walker Cup Match featuring a young local by the name of Rory McIlroy, and an all star USA lineup.

26 JULY, WEDNESDAY; GREENOCK (GLASGOW) SCOTLAND (7:15AM / 9:00PM)

This reinvented industrial center in western Scotland has solidified its reputation as a cultural hub. Charles Rennie Mackintosh is one of the first names to know;  he was a prodigious architect, interior designer and artist, and the city has a wealth of his work. Stop by his Willow Tea Rooms for a cup of tea and a scone.  The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum whose blue and gold inlaid ceiling, Art Deco hanging lamps and marble floors are sufficient reason to visit, let alone the impressive art collection that includes Salvador Dalí's controversial “Christ of St John of the Cross.”  Glasgow has an abundance of excellent seafood dining. The Crabshakk is perfect for daily catches including ruby red langoustines.  The oyster bar at Rogano in Exchange Square is where power brokers celebrate deals with a glass of Champagne and a dozen oysters in a space designed to look like a 1930s Art Deco cruise liner.  At the Pot Still, an institution that dates from 1857, choose from over 450 malt whiskies like Lagavulin or Arran.

Enjoy it on your own arrangements or via Azamara Land Discoveries®

Port Explorer Guide – Glasgow

LEE TREVINO:  Today play Prestwick Golf Club one of the world’s oldest clubs and whose very testing and traditional links hosted the very first Open Championship in 1860. The winner was Willie Park from Musselburgh with a score of 174 for thirty six holes, two shots clear of the legendary Tom Morris.  Prestwick was home to the first eleven Championships and then held it jointly along with The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St.Andrews and The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers (Muirfield).  Prestwick's twenty fourth and last Championship was in 1925 when Jim Barnes from the USA won.  Only the Old Course of St Andrews has hosted more Open Championships than Prestwick.

ARNOLD PALMER:  Today play the Ailsa Course of Turnberry.  Lying on a spectacular curve of rockbound coast, the coastal scenery is magnificent especially from the 4th through the 11th and passing the famous landmark lighthouse at the turn. No one can ever forget the 1977 “duel in the sun” between Jack Nicklaus & Tom Watson.  In 2009, the Ailsa Course hosted the Open Championship for the 4th time, when 32 years later Tom Watson almost clinched the championship as a 59 year old, losing out to Stewart Cink in a play off for the famed Claret Jug.

28 JULY, FRIDAY; PORTREE, ISLE OF SKE, SCOTLAND (7:00AM / 3:00PM)

The Isle of Skye is the largest and best known of the Inner Hebrides, an archipelago off the northwest coast of mainland Scotland. Skye’s landscape is distinctly Highland with its lochs, heather-clad moors and towering peaks.  Despite its small size, the island boasts an impressive 12 Munros (a mountain with a height over 3,000 ft) which make the island a favorite with hillwalkers keen to tackle the heights of its Cuillin mountain range whose peaks are visible from all over the islands. Skye features many other geological marvels such as the astounding sea cliff of Kilt Rock and the breathtaking landslip formation of the Quiraing.  This remote and pristine landscape provides a home for an abundant array of wildlife ranging from red deer and Scottish wildcats to pine martens and mountain hares. Visitors might be able to spot seals, dolphins, otters, golden eagles and sea eagles.

29 JULY, SATURDAY; INVERGORDON, SCOTLAND (7:00AM / 10:30PM)

Invergordon is the deep water port for Inverness, the capital of the Scottish Highlands and your gateway to an area of the Highlands known as the “Great Glen”. Travel 20 miles north to the picturesque town of Dornoch to see its sandstone buildings, beautiful domestic gardens and tiny 13th Century cathedral. Ten miles further you’ll find the fairy-tale ancestral home of the Clan Sutherland –Dunrobin Castle –  one of the oldest inhabited houses in Scotland, dating back to the 13th century. The stunning formal gardens which run down to the sea are based on those at Versailles and were laid out in the 1850s. Daily displays of the ancient sport of falconry take place in the gardens. Less than an hour south is magnificent Cawdor Castle, the setting for setting for Shakespeare’s Macbeth.  The 14th century home of the Thanes of Cawdor is considered one of the most romantic stately homes in the Highlands with its fine collection of rare tapestries, portraits and furniture plus lovely gardens and grounds.

LEE TREVINO & ARNOLD PALMER: Today both flights play Castle Stuart Golf Links. The one of newest addition to the links courses of Scotland. Castle Stuart runs along the shores of the Moray Firth to the east of Inverness with wonderful views over to the Black Isle. Six holes hug the shoreline while the remaining holes are played over a terraced slope so views out to sea are ever present. Already included in the World's Top 100.

30 JULY, SUNDAY; LEITH (EDINBURGH), SCOTLAND (9:00PM / IN PORT)

Enjoy a morning and afternoon at sea on Azamara Journey.  Evening arrival into Edinburgh.

Edinburgh – the inspiring capital of Scotland – is a historic, cosmopolitan and cultured city. The setting is striking; a city  perched on a series of extinct volcanoes and rocky crags which rise from the generally flat landscape of the Lothians with the sheltered shoreline of the Firth of Forth to the north. Edinburgh Castle dominates the city-center and from its ramparts you can look down on medieval lanes that hold over a thousand years of history, mystery and tradition. You will also see a modern, dynamic capital where international festivals attract the world's leading performers, galleries display cutting-edge art, and bars, restaurants and clubs create a lively, cosmopolitan atmosphere with a distinctly Scottish twist. No visit to Edinburgh would be complete without a walk up the Royal Mile, which stretches from the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Queen’s official residence in Scotland, to Edinburgh Castle. The route is lined with tourist shops but be sure to explore the narrow alleys called closes that lead off the Royal Mile.

About our FLIGHT NAMES, selected in honor of two great Royal Birkdale Open Champions

ARNOLD PALMER FLIGHT
Arnold Palmer “The King” won the Open Championship twice. His first victory came at Royal Birkdale Golf Club in 1961. His second and last victory followed at Royal Troon in 1962. By making the journey across the Atlantic, the highly charismatic young Palmer was rightly credited with reviving the fortunes of The Open Championship, and of setting it on its way to reclaim its place as one of the world’s greatest championships.
LEE TREVINO FLIGHT
Lee Trevino is a six times major championship winner. He won the 1971 Open Championship at Royal Birkdale, and by winning it the following year at Muirfield in a dramatic finish with England’s Tony Jacklin he became the first player to successfully defend the Open Championship since Arnold Palmer in 1962. Trevino is also one of only four players to have won the US Open, The Open Championship and the PGA Championship. The only major which eluded him was The Masters.
