in 2001. The hotel offers panoramic views of the River Tay estuary, the North Sea, the Fife countryside and the medieval skyline of St Andrews, while also providing amenities such as a luxurious Spa, 18-metre pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room.

Become acquainted with this charming town amid the bustle of The Open, visiting St Andrews Cathedral or walking the campus of St Andrews University, one of Britain’s most prestigious universities. The non-golfers in our party will travel by train for a day in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, where the Old Town offers history and the New Town promises shopping, dining and bars. Back in St Andrews have a pint at the Jigger Inn or the Dunvegan, wind along the cobbled streets and peruse the many shops in a town that dates to medieval times.

The golf is diverse and spectacular. Carnoustie has earned its reputation as the most demanding links in The Open rota. Francesco Molinari used flawless golf to outlast Tiger Woods and other contenders in 2018. Ben Hogan, Gary Player and Tom Watson won the championship here as well. Jean Van de Velde squandered his chance in 1999 on the 72nd hole. Kingsbarns, a Kyle Phillips design, delivers the premium links experience for which Scotland is famous. Dumbarnie Links, set to open in spring 2020, is Scotland’s newest links layout, delivering panoramic views of the Firth of Forth. The Torrance Course was remodeled in 2009 and has played host to the European Seniors Scottish Open and final qualifying for The Open.

The Old Course at St Andrews is playing host to The Open for the 30th time. Through the years, the great champions from each era have emerged with the Claret Jug on the venerable layout. After a rocky start, Bobby Jones fell in love with the course and the town on his way to victory in 1927. Sam Snead snagged the title in 1946. Bobby Locke and Peter Thomson won here and the two best players of the modern era - Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods - claimed The Open four times combined at St Andrews.

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.

Detailed Itinerary

PRINT THIS ITINERARY

MONDAY, JULY 12: ST ANDREWS, SCOTLAND

Arrive Edinburgh Airport. Met on arrival where you will be transferred to relax at your hotel, Fairmont, St Andrews.

St Andrews, known worldwide as The Home of Golf, and also boasts Scotland's oldest university. The Royal and Ancient Golf Club first met here in the spiritual home of golf in 1754, though it was first played here as early as the 15th century.

St Andrews University, founded in 1410, dominates the center of town. The elegant, ivy-clad buildings and delightful quadrangles and gardens have seen a procession of famous graduates such as Prince William. One of the top universities in Britain, St Andrews is often compared to Oxford and Cambridge for its defining presence and the collegiate feel it gives to the town. The Medieval center of St Andrews consists of a series of narrow alleys and cobbled streets packed with shops, restaurants and cafés.

Your Ground Series ticket to The 150th Open at St Andrews will allow you to visit to the tournament at any time during the week.

This evening attend our Welcome to Scotland Function.

TUESDAY, JULY 13: ST ANDREWS, SCOTLAND

GOLF: Today play Carnoustie. The club has been in The Open rota since 1931 having hosted the event on 8 occasions, most recently in 2018. It is regarded as the most difficult course the game's greats face in golf's oldest championship. While the links is relatively flat it is exposed to the elements. A combination of length and accuracy are required as golfers face narrow corridors from the tee. Approach shots demand precision to the greens heavily guarded by steep bunkers and burns. Arguably the toughest finishing holes in championship golf, errant shots are severely penalized.

SIGHTSEEING: Non-Golfers will enjoy a visit to Glamis Castle, childhood home of Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother, and birthplace of Princess Margaret.

The links features spacious rolling fairways, large greens, and exceptional sea views on every hole. A challenging yet enjoyable championship-standard traditional Scottish links course.

SIGHSEEING: Non-Golfers will today enjoy a fascinating walking tour of St Andrews visiting St Andrews Castle, parts of St Andrews University, and taking in the ruins of St Andrews Cathedral, once one of the most important religious sites in Europe.

THURSDAY, JULY 15: ST ANDREWS, SCOTLAND

Today attend the first round of The 150th Open at St Andrews. The Old Course remains essentially unchanged from the days of Old Tom Morris in the mid-to-late 19th century. The double fairways, double greens and natural bunkering combine to produce a set of strategic demands on the golfer which are unmatched and completely unique. In the course of its 29 Opens, St Andrews has had a habit of throwing up winners who are the best of their generation. Tiger Woods, Nick Faldo, Seve Ballesteros, Jack Nicklaus, Peter Thomson and Bobby Locke. Bobby Jones created such an impression on St Andrews during his 1927 win that it proved to be the beginning of a lifelong connection with the town.

FRIDAY, JULY 16: ST ANDREWS, SCOTLAND

GOLF: Today play Dumbarnie Links. Scotland’s newest golf course, Dumbarnie is scheduled to open in spring of 2020. A links layout, the course occupies an outstanding site.

A number of the tees and greens are also in close proximity to the sea and the design incorporates a several drivable Par-4’s and risk and reward holes.

SIGHTSEEING: Non-Golfers will travel by train to enjoy Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland; famous for its Parliament, Castle, Holyrood Palace, history, architecture, festivals, and city walking. The city is divided between the Old Town and the New Town.

Golf Schedule

A spectacular course incorporating cliff-edge holes and stunning views over the North Sea and the medieval skyline of historic St Andrews. The course is in the style of a Scottish Links, after receiving a major refurbishment that allowed it to reopen in July 2009, with new revetted bunkering, mounding and improved routing.

Dumbarnie Links image

Dumbarnie Links is the newest links course to be built in Scotland and is scheduled to open for play in 2020.  Located 9 miles to the south of St Andrews on a piece of land which has a mile and a half of sea frontage featuring panoramic views over the Firth of Forth.  Designed by Clive Clark the 345-acre site at Dumbarnie is particularly special.  Its dual elevations, which are connected by a flowing escarpment, have provided the opportunity to create a number of elevated tees where holes play directly towards the sea. The design incorporates three potentially driveable Par-4s and features several holes that engender ‘risk and reward’.  This course is designed to inspire rather than intimidate golfers.  Total yardage will vary from 5,300 to 6,900 yards. 

Carnoustie image

While the links is relatively flat it is exposed to the elements. A combination of length and accuracy are required as golfers face narrow corridors from the tee. Approach shots demand precision to the greens heavily guarded by steep bunkers and burns. Arguably the toughest finishing holes in championship golf, errant shots are severely penalized. Ben Hogan won The 82nd Open at Carnoustie in his lone appearance, in 1953. Tom Watson and Gary Player also hoisted the Claret Jug here.

Kingsbarns image

Its historical origins date back to 1793. Its sandy, linksland soils are the basis for this heritage, and produce the fine-bladed fescues which are the cornerstone of fast-and-firm playing surfaces that characterise links golf. Designed by Kyle Phillips and opened anew in 2000, its rebirth has been shared with golfers from near and far with outstanding reviews. The links features spacious rolling fairways, large greens, and exceptional sea views on every hole. A challenging yet enjoyable champion-standard traditional Scottish links course.

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.
