Escorted Golf Vacation Scotland and England and Attend The 151st Open at Royal Liverpool

Scotland & Northwest England Escorted 2023
Attend The 151st Open at Royal Liverpool

8 Nights | 4 Rounds | Saturday & Sunday at The Open | July 16 - 24

PerryGolf is thrilled to offer this 8-night, 4-round Escorted Tour which includes attendance to the final two rounds of The 151st Open at Royal Liverpool. Before watching the world’s finest compete for the famed Claret Jug at golf’s oldest major, we will play a remarkable quartet of courses, three of which have been regular hosts of The Open - Royal Troon, the Ailsa Course of Turnberry, and Royal Lytham, plus Hillside Golf Club which has long been recognized as one of the very finest links courses on the Lancashire coast.

We start at the renowned Turnberry Resort in Ayrshire, which enjoys a stunning coastal setting overlooking its championship courses... Read More.

While here we will play the Ailsa Course of Turnberry, and Royal Troon. Of course, Tom Watson and Turnberry are synonymous. The five-time Open champion outlasted the great Jack Nicklaus in their “Duel in the Sun” in 1977 and then, at age 59, lost in heart-breaking fashion to Stewart Cink in 2009. The course reopened in 2016 after an extensive renovation that married the links with the sea. The layout at Royal Troon took its current form in 1888. The delicate 8th, the “Postage Stamp” is one of the world’s signature par-3s. Henrik Stenson outdueled Phil Mickelson in a battle for the ages there in 2016 on what’s considered a links beyond compare.

Next we journey south to Lancashire, “England’s Golf Coast”, making Liverpool our convenient base. Walk in The Beatles’ footsteps, tour the interesting cathedrals and museums, and visit Albert Dock’s popular attractions. We play Royal Lytham which first hosted The Open, with its winners including Bobby Jones, Peter Thomson, Tony Jacklin, Gary Player, and the legendary Severiano Ballesteros. Hillside Golf Club is widely regarded as the best links never to have hosted The Open

If you enjoy combining your love of golf with a passion for travel, you’ll find a relaxing and highly rewarding experience on this Escorted Tour for a party of 20 to 30 guests. Every aspect is fully managed from the handling of your luggage and equipment to hotel and golf course check ins. Various meals, guided sightseeing, carts / caddies, local taxes, service charges and gratuities (excluding caddies) are included in addition to sandwiches, snacks plus an open bar for beer and wine during our time at each of the golf courses. Best of all, this PerryGolf vacation promises an ideal opportunity to join a group of like-minded new friends.

Golf Schedule

Trump Turnberry - Ailsa Course image

You can’t rush perfection, Turnberry’s Ailsa Course is proof.  It was established in 1902, modified in 1906, modified again in 1909, redesigned in 1938 then nearly disappeared after the Second World War when it was converted into an airbase with several holes flattened into concrete runways. It was restored and reopened in 1951 as one of Scotland’s finest links to the extent it hosted The Open for the first time in 1977 when Tom Watson’s 65-65 weekend beat Jack Nicklaus’ 65-66.  MacKenzie & Ebert made extensive alterations before The Open in 2009 then Ebert returned for a major update in 2015.  The result is spectacular, particularly but by no means limited to holes 9-11 that play across and along the bay atop rock outcrops on the left; dunes, pot bunkers and high fescue on the right.  The club’s famous lighthouse includes an incredible two-bedroom suite and one of the most memorable halfway houses in golf.

Royal Troon image

Royal Troon is a course in the current Open rota.  Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson and Tom Weiskopf (his only win in a major) have won here as did Henrik Stenson whose Sunday round of 63 outlasted Phil Mickelson’s 65 to claim The 145th Open.  The is a long links but it is consistently praised for its testing but fair set up. Troon boasts both the longest and the shortest holes among Open venues, being the “Postage Stamp” 8th at 126 yards, and the 6th at 601 yards named “Turnberry”.  The layout gives you a chance to find your game with a gentle opening but the inward nine is considered one of the most difficult sides in major championship golf.

Important Information

Golf Handicap Limit: The golf courses we play around the world offer varying challenges. Players often require to be of a certain standard to properly and fully experience them in the company of likeminded fellow golfers. We therefore set a maximum permitted golf handicap to participate on our tours and cruises; The maximums are 28 for men and 36 for ladies.

Golf Courses: The included list may be subject to change in the event of any club accepting any conflicting national or international event, or for any other reason. Should such a situation occur, PerryGolf will endeavour to book a course of comparable standard, and all booked guests would be notified of the change and replacement venue at the earliest opportunity.
