PerryGolf’s Founding Director, Colin Dalgleish, has recently returned from the 2013 British Open Golf Voyage. Below are some of his thoughts July 17 upon embarking on the quest, as well as some of his afterthoughts on July 25. The golf cruise was to no surprise, another success for both PerryGolf and clients. Between the five rounds of golf, attending the final round of The Open Championship at Muirfield, cocktail parties and much more fun in the sun, the slideshow below only sheds a mere glimpse into what a luxury golf cruise it really was. But I bet it’s enough to make you wonder about the 2014 British Open Escorted Tour…Enjoy!
There’s a case, often made, that Royal Dornoch alone is worth a journey to the Highlands. It is of course but treasure hunting links golfers will be pleased now to find new loot at Castle Stuart. Opened for play in July 2009 with instant honors from Golf Magazine as the “Best New International Course” of the year, Castle Stuart is the work of Americans Mark Parsinen (Kingsbarns) and Gil Hanse.
The 2013 and 2014 Scottish Opens will be televised on NBC, making them the first regular European Tour events televised on a major United States TV broadcast network. A two year agreement has been made between the Scottish Open’s title sponsor Aberdeen Asset Management and NBC in which NBC will broadcast two and a half hours of live coverage on the final two day’s play from Castle Stuart Golf Links in 2013 and Royal Aberdeen Golf Club, the venue for the 2014 Scottish Open. This coverage will of course complement that from the Golf Channel, as this year’s Scottish Open starts this Thursday, July 11.
The 2013 Scottish Open at Castle Stuart shall enjoy one enviable footnote; it is the first regular European Tour event to be broadcasted on network television in the USA (on NBC). Doubtless this shall introduce many more golf fans to the wonderfully designed Castle Stuart which was opened in 2009. Castle Stuart is the creation of Mark Parsinen (who created Kingsbarns) and Gil Hanse (of Olympic Golf Course notoriety).
PerryGolf has long prided itself on discovering and creating unique golf travel experiences which we believe enhance the underlying golf trip to make it truly special. Over the years we have introduced VIP Golf Coaches, the PerryGolf Lodges at Turnberry and many other innovative programs that thousands of clients have come to expect as part and parcel of the PerryGolf service ethos.
In the same vein, we are delighted to introduce Quarryfield House in the Highlands of Scotland. Quarryfield is ideally located for a group of golfers who desire an exclusive use facility that is centrally located for all of the world class golf courses in the region. The house has 8 bedrooms, of which 7 have en suite bathroom and all are a good size and modern.
