I wanted to send a quick note and a picture regarding our trip. Thrilling pretty much sums up the trip. I want to thank you and the whole PerryGolf team for your professionalism and experience in setting up a trip we will remember for the rest of our lives. Every day provided a new and exciting experience which if possible, seemed greater than the day prior. Read more “Scotland Golf Vacation ~ A Customized PerryGolf Trip”
PerryGolf’s Keith Baird recently concluded another successful trip – St Andrews and The 2013 Open with The Houstonian Golf & Country Club. Read more about the trip via Keith’s thoughts below and enjoy the slideshow with pictures from this PerryGolf trip to St Andrews last month.
“Mr. Mack, the head professional at Houstonian Golf & Country Club, brought a group of 45 members to Scotland in July 2013. Their PerryGolf trip was based mostly at the fantastic five star Fairmont St Andrews and included golf on some of the world’s best golf courses including the Old Course at St Andrews, Carnoustie Golf Links, and Kingsbarns Golf Links, plus attendance at the final round of the The Open Championship, won by Phil Mickelson. The trip was a huge success with a return journey in 2015 already being discussed between PerryGolf and The Houstonian. Attached are just a selection of photos from their time in Scotland.”
As a fantastic 5 star resort that we frequently recommend to clients when travelling to St. Andrews, we were delighted to hear that the Fairmonthas very recently been awarded the title of “Best Golf Resort and Spa” by the World Travel Awards.

One of London’s most famous hotels is on schedule for its re-opening in October this year. The Savoy Hotel on The Strand closed at the end of 2007 and has been undergoing a very ambitious restoration to offer the very finest up-to-date facilities without destroying the much loved atmosphere of this grand hotel. The hotel has featured in many movies, and no trip to London for the rich and famous was complete without afternoon tea at The Savoy.
A mixture of Edwardian and Art Deco architecture and décor has always been the hallmark of this magnificent building and a huge team of architects and designers have worked enthusiastically to bring it into the 21st century while keeping the grandiose spirit of a more opulent era. They have maintained the historical River Restaurant, and the famous ‘afternoon tea’ can be taken in the new Winter Garden beneath an elaborate glass dome. There is also the added attraction of a new Beaufort Bar for afternoon tea, extending into cocktails and cabaret – a hallmark of Edwardian society. There is even a discreet shop selling the famous tea plus fresh pastries and, of course, they have kept The Savoy Grill!
After all this food, patrons will be delighted to discover the new rooftop swimming pool and fitness gallery!
