Incredible Golf in New Zealand

From the Golf Channel, Jason Deegan writes, “”What distinguishes New Zealand golf from the U.S. is the courses are not part of the housing,” he said. “You can see the hills, the water, the mountains. The physical beauty of the courses is amplified by the surroundings. It’s a unique experience.”

Cooking School, Italy

If you are travelling to Italy, the one activity that we find both golfers and non-golfers alike love, is an authentic Italian cooking class.  An ideal location to experience this is in the Lake Como area where cooking classes take place in the Culinary Institute, “Gianni Brera” – which is considered one of the best institutes in Italy.  Lessons are hands-on and before beginning the cooking process, the participants will be taken to the nearby food department store where the chef will introduce you to the culinary habits of the Italians.

The classes are based on the preparation of the lunch or dinner that will then be eaten by the participants themselves at the end of the class.  Importantly, the meal is accompanied by fine wines!

PerryGolf can incorporate as many cooking classes as desired into a vacation and would be delighted to arrange transfers from your hotel (ideal in order to allow you to enjoy the wines on offer during the day).
