2015 British Open at St Andrews by Sea ~
England, Ireland & Scotland on board Azamara Quest
14 Nights | 7 Rounds | Attend the Open at the Old Course
4 – 18 July 2015 | Southampton – Edinburgh
The 144th Open Championship will be hosted by the incomparable Old Course in July of 2015. It will be the 29th Open played at St Andrews which is the destination of our ninth British Open golf cruise and our finest yet! This 14 night voyage through the British Isles is beautifully balanced between famous city experiences such as Liverpool, Dublin and Edinburgh with visits to the charming islands of Guernsey and the Isle of Man, plus the isles of Skye and Lewis in Scotland’s Hebridean archipelago.
The golf will be equally exceptional with 7 rounds including “Royal” Clubs, Open Championship & Ryder Cup venues in Scotland, Ireland and England ranging from Old Head and Royal Liverpool to Royal County Down and Gleneagles PGA Centenary. Better yet of course, attending the Open Championship atthe Old Course St Andrews is a golf and history experience like no other.
The Azamara Quest is an outstanding vessel for such a voyage through the British Isles; large enough to offer every amenity – nimble enough to navigate the smaller harbours. It is certain that the ship’s 42 suites will be in high demand, so if you prefer such comfort we would advise you to act quickly.

Golf & the Iberian Peninsula by Sea ~ Portugal, Spain & France on board Azamara Journey
10 Nights | 6 Rounds | Lisbon – Barcelona | 3 – 13 September 2014
PerryGolf is proud to again partner with Azamara Club Cruises for an exceptional golf voyage onboard the outstanding 694 guest Azamara Journey around the Iberian Peninsula. Our itinerary begins in Lisbon and concludes in the vibrant Spanish city of Barcelona. Golf includes Valderamma, consistently rated #1 in continental Europe, plus PGA Catalunya ranked narrowly behind. The well regarded Spanish layouts of Montecastillo, El Saler, El Prat, plus France’s Golf St Cyprien, complete the six round program.
Many Guests are golfing couples but an equal number are golfers travelling with a non-golfing spouse. The latter are exceptionally well catered for beginning with fabulous on board facilities plus your choice of Azamara Land Discoveries® which are offered in each port.
The itinerary also allows for some relaxing “sea time” under Mediterranean skies where our Guests are absolutely spoiled. Azamara Journey (and her sister ship Quest) provides a wide choice of dining and bars, a full service spa, plus varied evening entertainment. In addition to all “normal” cruise features, soft drinks, specialty coffees, boutique wines, beer and cocktails are included within the cruise fare, as are all gratuities. Better still, our itinerary is set to allow for late evenings and occasional overnights allowing you much greater “immersion” in the destination.
Last week marked a #YearToGo until the 2014 Ryder Cup in Scotland. To begin the one year to go celebrations, European Ryder Cup Team Captain, Paul McGinley, and American Ryder Cup Team Captain, Tom Watson, made their way on board the “Ryder Cup Express” from Edinburgh to Gleneagles to meet face to face.
More often than not, when golfers think of travel to the British Isles, they focus on Scotland…closely followed by Ireland. In reality, one of the greatest stretches of coastline, which serves as home to a superior grouping of links courses, is the Lancashire coast of England. Situated northwest of Manchester and facing Dublin across the Irish Sea, the Lancashire coast is home to some classic links…
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.”
