Vietnam & Cambodia Introduction

Hello from South East Asia. This is Colin Dalgleish of PerryGolf visiting Vietnam, Cambodia & Thailand for a final preview of our upcoming February 2014 escorted tour to the region. Today I have been in Bangkok which we are offering as a three day precursor to the main tour. A quick visit to meet General Manager John Blanch at the prestigious Thai Country Club, an outstanding facility with a strong pedigree coupled to exceptional service. Next up is dinner and overnight at the Anantara Resort and Spa which sits right on the river and provides an oasis of green in the very heart of Bangkok city. Tomorrow sees me fly to Siem Reap Cambodia for the Lost City of Angkor Watt and some of the great golf which is nearby it.

St. Andrews International Underway

It’s not like the Home of Golf needs another course but the more the merrier!  I read with great interest this week that work has officially started on the new St. Andrews International project located just outside the town.  With a planned opening date of spring 2015, there is a lot of work to be done, but let hope this provides yet another world class course to the area.  Further details of the story can be found here, with project details at the following link – http://www.standrewsigc.com/ .

Our second season with Cape Breton Island approaches with Stanley Thompson’s masterpiece at Highlands Links fully restored to its original excellence.  There is every expectation that World #98 (GOLF Magazine) will be rising in the rankings.

Last year’s newcomer and Canada’s only authentic links layout, Cabot Links, met every expectation to the point that co-owners Mike Keiser (Bandon Dunes) and Ben Cowan-Dewar have announced plans for a second course.  Cabot Cliffs will be designed by Coore and Crenshaw.  Keiser told Bill Coore during one of their recent site visits, “I think we’re on to something big here.”  We couldn’t agree more particularly considering the availability of four more Cape Breton courses we can recommend highly; Dundee, Bell Bay, The Lakes and Le Portage.

Donald Trump has just unveiled plans for a second course on the Balmedie Estate in Aberdeen.  The second course is to be called the Mary MacLeod Course after Trump’s Scottish born mother and will have the same designer (Martin Hawtree) who did a great job on the original course.   As yet, no timings are available, however further details can be found by clicking here.
